Personal Injury Wrongful Death Insurance Claims

Ohio Wrongful Death Attorneys

Negligence Kills.

Fight Back to Ensure Accountability.

When a loved one dies because of negligence, the at-fault party should be held responsible and monetarily accountable.  Ohio Wrongful Death Law Firm,  The Law Office of Jeremy M. Burnside, LLC, is dedicated to helping families cope with wrongful death by not just providing help and support in such tough times, but by providing quality legal care with proud representation as a grieving family's advocate for justice.  

Ohio and Kentucky Wrongful Death AttorneysIt is important that victims of wrongful death do not allow the negligent party or parties get away with wrongdoing.  After all, if these families do not hold negligent parties accountable, who will and to what expense?  We represent wrongful death clients in the following areas:

  • Serious Motor Vehicle Accidents;
  • Motorcycle Accidents;
  • Trucking wrecks;
  • Pedestrian Accidents;
  • Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect;
  • Medical Malpractice;
  • Dram Shop (bar over-serves an at-fault party causing death);
  • Premises Liability (someone dies because another did not keep their property safe)

If you have lost someone due to the fault of someone else, we believe it is paramount to any case that the client has ample time to grieve so that he or she does not make decisions on their wrongful death case based on emotion, alone.

Probate and Your Wrongful Death Case - Our wrongful death clients are usually court-approved representatives of the estate of the deceased.  These designations are called Personal Representatives, Administrators or Executors (Executrix).  The probate court (through non-specific probate courts in Kentucky and West Virginia) judge ensures that all prospective beneficiaries understand their rights to any potential recovery.  The probate judge also determines whether any potential settlement is fair.  

In wrongful death actions where there are non-complicated probate matters, our office will usually handle the general probate aspects of the case, which includes the proper court filings and approvals.  If there is property of the loved one who died that needs to be transferred in the probate process, we ask that our clients hire a separate probate attorney who handles mainly these issues, as it requires special type of care.  We will work with this probate lawyer at all stages of the case as we purse the wrongful death case.
