Knowledgeable Wrongful Death Attorney Serves Westlake

Helping Ohio families get justice after the loss of a loved one

The unexpected loss of a family member is even more tragic when their death is caused by someone else’s careless, negligent or deliberately malicious behavior. While dealing with the death of a loved one is always difficult, doing so can become infinitely more complex when you try to set aside your devastation to deal with the legal aspects of filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Michael C. Asseff Attorney at Law possesses a thorough understanding of Ohio wrongful death law.

I represent families in lawsuits involving:

  • Auto accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Slips and falls
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Workplace accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Defective products
  • Lack of proper security
  • Mesothelioma
  • Medical malpractice
  • Birth injuries
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect
  • Aviation accidents
  • Assault
  • Murder

Providing grieving families with dedicated service

I know the profound impact the loss of your loved one has had on your life, which is why I devote substantial resources to every wrongful death case I take. I employ private investigators and work with expert witnesses to ensure every case receives the attention and resources it deserves. I carefully collect and preserve evidence from accident scenes, and I seek out any witnesses to obtain testimonies. I explore all options when building your case to make certain you receive the maximum compensation possible under Ohio law.

Types of compensation in a wrongful death claim

The damages you receive in a wrongful death lawsuit depend on a variety of factors, including the severity of the accident and your loved one’s suffering prior to passing. I help clients receive compensation for:

  • Medical costs
  • Funeral expenses
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of love, affection and companionship
  • Loss of protection and guidance
  • Benefits lost due to the victim’s death, including medical insurance
