When you have lost a loved one because of the careless or negligent acts of another person, you may find it difficult to move forward financially as well as emotionally. Your loved one may have been the primary provider for your family. You may have filed a claim with your insurance company, only to face delays or even denial when you need compensation to meet your daily needs.
You want an experienced lawyer to protect your rights, one who has successfully represented others in similar circumstances. To discuss your wrongful death claim with an experienced Toledo attorney, contact Martin E. Goff, Attorney at Law, or call me at 567-298-4661.
Helping Individuals Recover for the Loss of a Loved One
I have handled serious personal injury and wrongful death claims throughout Ohio for the past 30 years. I recently went to trial in a wrongful death case and received a verdict for my client (the 3-year old boy of the dead motorcycle driver). After eight days of trial the jury deliberated about a day then awarded $1.9 million.
While this amount — or any amount I recover for you — can never turn back time and take away the pain of the collision and its aftermath, the amounts can often be directed to offsetting any expenses created by the crash itself.
Handling Wrongful Death Lawsuits at Every Step
I handle all the details involved in a wrongful death lawsuit, initiating the process by ensuring that you or someone has been named executor of the estate of your loved one, so that the estate can bring a wrongful death action. I handle wrongful death actions arising from any type of personal injury, from:
- Car crashes
- Motorcycle accidents
- Fatal truck accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Workplace injury, including construction site and industrial accidents
In situations where your loved one left minor children, I can also work with the probate court to establish a guardianship to protect any financial recovery until the children become adults.
Bowling Green Fatal Accident Attorney
Often, in situations involving wrongful death, a part of the recovery comes under a life insurance policy. With prior experience representing the interests of insurers in fatal accident cases, I know how to negotiate and work with insurance providers to ensure that you get all the benefits to which you are entitled. This includes compensation for:
- Loss of future earnings
- Medical expenses before death
- Conscious pain and suffering before death
- Funeral expenses
- Mental anguish suffered by surviving family members
- Loss of companionship, society and enjoyment of life
A wrongful death action is a complicated legal process. The earlier you get an attorney involved, the better chance you will have to recover full and fair compensation for all your losses.
Compassionate and Aggressive Representation
I take an aggressive approach on behalf of all my clients, but offer friendly and compassionate counsel when you come to my office. Before dedicating my practice to the needs of personal injury victims, I spent 10 years defending insurance companies in wrongful death and other personal injury lawsuits. I know the tactics they rely on to minimize or deny rightful claims and will use my knowledge to protect your interests.
