Handling Wrongful Death Matters Throughout Northeast Ohio When Families Face Tragedy

Wrongful death lawyer helps Medina and Strongsville families get through their time of loss

If your loved one dies due to the negligent act of another, you may have a wrongful death case. There is no time more stressful than losing a loved one particularly if their death is caused by the wrongful acts of another person. David C. Sheldon is a wrongful death lawyer in Medina who understands the tragedy of loss and compassionately advocates for your rights and the rights of your loved one. We have more than 24 years of experience seeking compensation for the wrongful death of your loved one.

At The Law Office of David Craig Sheldon, we investigate the cause of the loss and take appropriate action on your behalf. Ohio state law sets two years from time of death to file a wrongful death case. It is important to do so as soon as possible or the opportunity to recover damages will be lost forever.

Who can file a wrongful death claim?

Ohio wrongful death actions, governed by these statutes - RC 2125.01 and 2125.02 - state that the surviving spouse, children and parents of the deceased can bring a wrongful death action. If next of kin want to also recover damages, they must testify at a trial but the immediate family members do not need to do so.

Wrongful death attorney recovers compensation to help families in Medina and throughout northeast Ohio

We strive to achieve justice against those who have caused the untimely death of your loved one. Personal injury attorney David C. Sheldon is committed to recovering compensation for all damages available in Ohio, including:

  • Loss of financial support
  • Loss of services
  • Loss of society of the deceased - companionship, love and affection, care
  • Loss of prospective inheritance to the heirs of the deceased
  • Mental anguish

The amount a jury can award is not capped by statute because the Ohio Constitution prohibits caps in wrongful death cases.
