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.
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.
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:
