11 Ways a Lawyer Can Help You With Your Ohio Wrongful Death Case Part 5| Toledo, Ohio wrongful death lawyers
File in the proper court
A Ohio tragic accident lawsuit can be filed either where the defendant resides or where the incident causing the death occurred. For instance, if a car accident happened in Lucas County and the defendant lived in Wood County, the lawsuit could be filed in either county.
Certain jurisdictions are more friendly to plaintiffs than other jurisdictions. Sometimes that’s because certain judges have previously ruled on a particular issue that might be highly relevant to a case. Your attorney’s experience and insight will be helpful in picking the best court for your case.
For example, in one catastrophic car injury case, we filed suit in Detroit because the company of one defendant was based there. The realization that the case would be tried in front of a plaintiff-friendly Detroit jury forced the defendants to own up to their responsibilities. That resulted in a huge settlement for our client.
