Our Toledo, Ohio wrongful death lawyers understand that no amount of money could ease the pain of losing a loved one to tragic circumstances, or losing them due to the negligence of another person.
But there are damages available to beneficiaries, should a wrongful death claim be brought about. One of those types of damages is Loss of Services.
It’s a sort of vague claim, but essentially the law allows beneficiaries to collect compensation for services the decedent provided the beneficiaries. For example, assume Betty was killed as the result of someone’s negligence. If Betty provided daycare for her daughter Leslie’s children, Leslie could seek compensation for the money it cost her to secure daycare. That’s not to say that the estate must show all the claimed lost services are attached to a specific dollar amount. The jury can determine a dollar figure for each lost service.
