The Ohio Wrongful Death Lawyers with the law firm of Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy state if a person’s death is caused by the negligence or recklessness of another, the family of the victim may be entitled to compensation.
Such a case was recently filed by the family of a woman who was killed by a 44-year-old doctor from Delaware, Ohio.

The family of the victim later filed a civil suit against the doctor, claiming that his actions were directly responsible for the loss of the woman and her unborn child. They are seeking more than $40 million in damages and the case is scheduled to go to trial in October.
