Auto Accident Wrongful Death Attorney -- Columbus, OH

Wrongful Death Caused in an Auto Accident


When a person has been killed in an auto accident due to the negligence or misconduct of someone else, the surviving dependents or beneficiaries may be entitled to financial payment for the damages caused by the wrongful death. While no amount of money can compensate the loss of a loved one, many times families do not pursue legal action to recover from the many other expenses that can occur such as funeral expenses, loss of income or general damages. An experienced wrongful death attorney understands the different sources of recovery available and can work with the insurance company and parties involved to see that you receive the recovery you deserve.


There are a number of negligent behaviors that can cause a car accident leading to wrongful death, such as:


·        Distracted Driving

·        Aggressive Driving

·        Failure to Obey Traffic Laws

·        Drunk Driving

·        Drowsy Driving


In order for an auto accident wrongful death claim to be successful, there must be ample proof that the driver was at fault for negligence or misconduct. With 29 years of experience, Robert D.
