  10. I am very sorry for your loss. There is a two year statute of limitations for wrongful death in Ohio. The claim should be investigated as soon as possible from when it occured. Often times evidence disappears with the passage of time. You should consult with a well-known personal injury/wrongful death attorney immediately (unless you already retained an attorney). My firm, like many others, will give a free consultation over the phone, and any fee would be contingent in nature (meaning that we only get paid if we are successful on the case).
