Frequently Asked Questions

A member of my family was killed as a result of medical negligence. What are my rights?

The first hurdle is liability. Can it be proven that it was someone else’s fault? The second hurdle is causation. Can it be proven that your family member died as a result of the injuries he or she suffered in the accident? The third hurdle is insurance coverage. Does the at-fault party have automobile insurance? If all of these hurdles are met, an estate needs to be set up for the deceased person and someone needs to be the Administrator. If the deceased person had a will, then the Executor will be in charge of the estate. Only the Administrator or Executor has the power to bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault party. The beneficiaries of the estate share in the financial recovery.

Do I have to go to probate court when a medical negligence wrongful death case is settled?

In Ohio, the answer is yes. The settlement and distribution of the settlement must be approved by the probate court the estate was established in.

Do I have to pay taxes on a medical negligence wrongful death settlement?

No, the proceeds of a wrongful death settlement are not taxable.
