We Fight Hard to Recover Wrongful Death Compensation for Your Family
A sudden loss can lead to sudden financial instability. If our law firm represents your family, we can pursue the following forms of compensation:
- Your loved one’s medical bills
- Funeral, burial, or cremation costs
- Loss of your loved one’s income
- Loss of your loved one’s household support
- Loss of their future earning capacity
- Loss of a prospective inheritance
- Your family’s mental and emotional trauma
- Loss of consortium and companionship
Our wrongful death attorney will work with your family and collect documents that prove the monetary value of your compensation request.
Family Members Who Can Recover Damages After a Fatal Car Accident in Marion
Our legal team understands that the loss of a loved one will affect many friends and family members. In Ohio, however, only specific family members can benefit from wrongful death compensation, including:
- The deceased person’s spouse
- The deceased person’s parents
- The deceased person’s children
Relatives like the decedent’s siblings and grandparents, who the decent financially supported, might also benefit from any resulting award. Determining who qualifies for compensation can be complicated. Review your relationship and dependency on the decedent with a member of our wrongful death team to understand how the law applies to you.

How We Prove the Negligence that Entitles Your Family to Compensation
Our wrongful death car accident lawyer, who represents your family in Marion, can prove the legally required elements of negligence—duty of care, breach of duty, causation, and damages—since they are required to pursue the at-fault driver. We can document them with the following evidence:
- The official car accident report
- Medical records and bills
- Photos and video footage
- Statements from witnesses
- Testimonials from experts
- Accident reconstruction analysis
We might also obtain the negligent driver’s driving record. For example, if the driver’s sobriety was in question at the time of the collision, we can request access to their blood alcohol concentration test results.
At The Fitch Law Firm LLC, our personal injury attorneys will not tax your family with any evidence collection. Instead, we will order and request all the physical evidence and documentation we need to build the strongest possible case for financial recovery.
We Work Hard to Comply With the Statute of Limitations in Ohio
Your family needs and deserves time to focus on coping with your loss and taking care of each other. The state limits the time you have to file your lawsuit, though, so we will get to work right away to avoid filing your wrongful death lawsuit too late. Doing so could impede your right and ability to file your lawsuit or recover damages altogether.
In general, the wrongful death statute of limitations is two years, according to Ohio Revised Code Section 2125.02. Several circumstances could cause the timeline to fluctuate, so the sooner you start working with our legal team, the better. We will accurately interpret the filing deadline based on the details of your case and work to file your lawsuit within the allotted time.
