Your Legal Support System During This Difficult Time
Dealing with a loved one's passing is hard enough on its own. Learning that the death was the result of negligence, recklessness or other preventable acts makes it much harder to accept.
While no amount of money can compensate someone for the loss of a loved one, filing a wrongful death claim can bring surviving families justice and hopefully, closure. If the situation we've described above sounds familiar, know that you don't have to go through the legal system alone.

We've also handled enough cases to know that this is a difficult time for you and the rest of your family. Allow us to take the legal burden off your shoulders so you can focus on grieving and rebuilding your life after this loss.
With us on your side, you can be as involved in your case as you want to be, and we will provide you with the most important updates along the way.
Compensation in Wrongful Death Claims
It's difficult to put a price tag on human life, or even discuss finances when a life has been lost. After all, even a billion dollars won't bring your loved one back.
Nevertheless, The Mark Casto Law Firm, PC will still strive to pursue maximum compensation on your behalf. While the financial consequences of your loss might not yet be on your mind, we aim to help your family avoid all economic burdens associated with your loved one's death– today and in the future.
We hope that recovering the full amount of damages can bring justice to your family and give you the time and space you need to properly grieve your loss. Once we get to know you and your family, we can describe the decedent's impact on your lives and help make sure you never feel the effects of a missing income or a lost inheritance.
What Damages Can Be Recovered in a Wrongful Death Case?
The economic and no-economic damages our Columbus wrongful death attorney can recover include:
- Medical fees incurred before the victim's passing
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of expected earnings from the deceased
- Loss of benefits including medical coverage or pension plans
- Damages for causing pain and suffering to the surviving family
- Loss of love, care, protection, and companionship to the surviving family
- Loss of consortium to the surviving spouse
The better we know you, the better we can express your situation to the responsible parties in settlement negotiations or to a judge or jury in the event of a courtroom trial.
We encourage you to get in touch as soon as you are able.
Can I Sue For Emotional Distress?
If you are experiencing emotional distress due to the wrongful death of your loved one, you are not alone. Emotional distress is a common result of this type of trauma and can have a lasting impact on your life, mental health, career, wellbeing, sleep and more. It is crucial to receive the proper care and compensation necessary to help you through this time.
How Can I Prove Emotional Distress?
Like any strong legal case, you will need to provide proof of your distress in order to have a chance at winning your case. Your friends and family may also need to testify on your behalf that your life has indeed been negatively altered because of your distress.
