Our Toledo, Ohio wrongful death lawyers know that wrongful death cases are inherently complicated, involving everything from probate matters to negligence issues. These types of cases are often made more difficult because insurance companies representing the wrongdoer often try to avoid liability or offer unfair or inadequate compensation. Most people have never been through this process and, understandably, don’t understand what they’re up against when they decide to pursue a wrongful death claim.
Those who haven’t been involved in a wrongful death case usually expect that an insurance company will pay off medical bills and compensate them for the loss of their loved one. But for many the nightmare is just beginning. The pain caused by the accident can be compounded by the unfair treatment the victim receives from some insurance companies that have one objective – closing the file for as little money as possible without fair compensation for the injured.
In short, insurance companies have teams of adjusters and lawyers that they can put to work on defending such claims. They’re professionals – they handle claims involving death and serious injuries all day and every day. Naturally, they have an advantage over most people who are encountering these issues for the first time. In our office, we believe knowledge is power. We think this book will be helpful in leveling the playing field between insurance companies and those who have lost loved ones as a result of someone’s wrongful acts. If you’re reading the book and you find you have some questions, the lawyers in our office would be happy to answer them. Just call 419-241-1395 or 800-637-8170.
