Wrongful Death

Few individuals are prepared for the emotional devastation and financial crisis that accompany the unexpected loss of a loved one due to a fatal vehicular or worksite accident, or from a medical procedure. At the Law Office of Bilfield & Associates in Cleveland, Ohio, we file wrongful death claims and lawsuits on behalf of individuals and families throughout northeast Ohio who have suffered the loss of a family member through the negligent or careless conduct of an individual, the employees of a company or business, or a physician.

Many questions arise following a fatal accident. How could this have happened? Who is responsible? What compensation is available to cover the financial losses such as family support, cost of raising children or educational costs?

At the Law Office of Bilfield & Associates, we understand the pain and loss associated with the death of a loved one. If you have lost a family member because of any of the following types of accidents, you may be eligible to receive compensation to cover medical expenses, funeral costs, lifetime loss of income, loss of services and companionship, loss of prospective inheritance, pain and suffering, and the emotional loss associated with the death of a family member.

Ohio has specific laws that govern who can file a wrongful death claim or lawsuit and imposes strict time limits for filing wrongful death claims in court. Since 1974, our firm has filed many claims and lawsuits to recover compensation for the emotional and financial losses that occur as the result of a wrongful death. If a loved one in your family has died as a result of a vehicular accident, or under any of the circumstances listed above, contact one of our experienced injury attorneys to schedule a Free Initial Consultation that is 100% confidential.

Large corporations, businesses, individuals, and their insurance companies can be found responsible and accountable for causing an accident that took the life of a loved one by filing a wrongful death lawsuit.

    "Bilfield & Associates were very helpful in my application for Permanent Residency. My husband and I had tried to do it by ourselves and found it to be very stressful and confusing, not to mention the time and money we wasted. The team of lawyers made the process worry-free and I had my Permanent Residency Card in no time at all. Thanks again."

    "To whom it may concern:
    I had a serious MVA, resulting in a permanent and painful low back injury. After four years of trying to get my attorney to do something about the claim, my attorney's secretary informed me one day, that he had moved out of state, and that my case doctor had died. The attorney's office could not locate my file. At this time I contacted Murray Bilfield who took over my case. He was able to locate and recover my file from the A Dead Record@ section of the County Courthouse. In spite of these handicaps, Murray was able to revive my case, negotiate with the insurance company, and we were able to settle out the case for 90% of the insurance coverage.
    Without reservation, I would recommend Murray Bilfield, and have, to anyone in need of an excellent, skilled attorney."
