Accidental Death

Cincinnati accidental death lawsuit

An accident can be very disruptive to our lives. A minor accident is merely an annoyance. But when a loved one dies as the result of the accident, the results are catastrophic. Accidental deaths are our worst nightmares come true.

After the initial shock goes away, you will start to wonder and worry about the future. Unfortunately, the biggest stress comes from money. You may wonder “How am I going to handle this financially – the bills, the mortgage, the car payment, etc.?” On top of it, there will now be expenses for any medical bills as a result of the accident as well as funeral costs. Even if you are fortunate enough to have insurance, all of these expenses may still not be covered by your insurance benefits.

The Cincinnati attorneys of Freking Myers & Reul, LLC will guide you through the unknown that lies ahead. We will advise you your rights as the survivor of the victim of accidental death as the result of car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, and other fatal accidents. We are very knowledgeable with the insurance and general liability laws for the state of Ohio and Kentucky. We have the experience to conduct settlement negotiations, bring a lawsuit and go to trial in the event a settlement cannot be reached.

Accidental death claimants may be able to recover damages if proven for:

  • Loss of income

  • Medical expenses including past medical expenses
