The Brannon Law Firm has extensive experience handling wrongful death lawsuits throughout Ohio. No matter what the circumstances are, losing a loved one is the most difficult situation that many of us will experience in our lifetimes. That terrible loss is made infinitely more difficult when the deceased died unnecessarily, suddenly, or as the result of someone else’s negligence. It is our job to make sure that the responsible party is held liable for the death that it caused. By holding the wrongdoer responsible, other people in the community are encouraged to be more careful to avoid the same tragedy in the future.
Wrongful death claims include every type of accidental death, no matter what caused it. Wrongful deaths can occur in almost any type of accident where the victim is physically harmed and then dies as a result of that accident and those injuries. Examples of situations in which wrongful death usually occurs include car accidents, truck accidents, electrocutions, failure to diagnose a fatal disease, workplace accidents, defective products, and many other situations. Almost always, the party responsible for a wrongful death vigorously denies liability so they are not held financially responsible for the wrongful death.
Finding an attorney immediately after a tragic loss is probably not at the top of your priorities’ list. However, with each day that passes, evidence that may be critical to prove a claim can be destroyed. At the Brannon Law Firm, we take action immediately by sending our professional investigators and accident re-constructionists to preserve all of the evidence and determine what happened. We will also handle the administration of your loved one’s estate, deal with insurance companies, and manage the countless other problems that arise after a wrongful death occurs. By calling our attorneys immediately after an accident, we will take on your burdens so that you can grieve in peace. We will contact you only when you are absolutely needed, so that you can be left alone during such difficult times.
Our wrongful death attorneys have the knowledge and experience necessary to successfully pursue complex claims and litigation. We only work with the best experts available to establish liability for negligent acts that lead to someone’s death. For example, the Brannon Law Firm had retained Dr. Michael Baden from the HBO television series Autopsy to investigate and determine the cause of death of a person who died while in police custody. From the moment that our firm accepts a case, we are dedicated to representing the deceased and grieving family members in a responsible and professional manner.
Surviving family members sometimes have mixed feelings about making a monetary claim for death. No amount of money will ever bring a loved one back to life. However, monetary recoveries are extremely important to assure the ability of the surviving spouse, children, and any other dependents will be financially secure in the future. By making the person that caused your loved one’s death compensate you for that loss, you are preventing other people from suffering the same fate in the future. If your loved one has been the victim of a wrongful death accident, call our offices today for a free consultation.
