Wrongful Death Cases -- Legal Notes from Fields, Dehmlow & Vessels in Marietta, Ohio What is wrongful death? How is a wrongful death case different from a personal injury case? The main difference is that the injured person is actually dead and cannot represent themselves in the matter. The Court will appoint a representative to act on the deceased's behalf. There are two types of wrongful death claims. This representative will be an administrator or executor of the estate. 1. Survivorship Claim Deceased person would have pursued the claim on their own behalf. Covers medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. 2. Wrongful Death Claim On behalf of the survivors, and covers future income the deceased would have earned, future expected inheritance, loss of companionship, and mental anguish at their death. Settlement of these claims must be approved by the court. Survivorship Claims generally pass through the deceased's will or laws of intestacy (meaning no will). Wrongful Death Claim benefits will be guided by a set of statutes in each state to obtain an equitable distribution of the benefits. Surviving spouses and minor children are usually favored before other family members in these considerations. Visit for more information, or call 740-374-5346 today. The law firm of Fields, Dehmlow & Vessels has experience in wrongful death cases in both West Virginia and Ohio.

"Intestacy in California: The Lucky Gene Club," Jonathan Greenspan & Eric Yamamoto Link to Lawline CLE Seminar: Course Description: Even if a person creates a will to distribute her assets upon death, unforeseen circumstances may still cause them to be unclaimed and a state's intestacy laws control how they are distributed among the decedent's heirs. In this program, California attorneys Jonathan Greenspan and Eric Yamamoto provide an introductory course on California's intestacy laws. Mr. Greenspan and Mr. Yamamoto begin with a discussion of the common situations where assets remain to be distributed (eg, no will, ineffective will) - causing the intestacy laws to kick in. They then review California's statutory scheme for asset distribution as well as the treatment of community and separate property owned between spouses. Finally, the presenters delineate how adopted and foster children are treated under the intestacy laws. This CLE concludes by going over survivorship issues and establishing an heir's right to asset distribution. This is a helpful program for new California estate law practitioners and all California attorneys looking for a refresher on the state's intestacy laws.
Intestacy Intestacy Duncan Ragg, Nick Hadland Australian National University I chose intestacy because inheritance seems so straight forward and yet can be so complex if a will is not drafted or is invalid. This helps students connect with the law because everyone is aware of wills, but no one really thinks about rules of governing inheritance if there aren't any wills, or whether the rules apply to children, children in-law and step-children. Often people are uncomfortable discussing death and this film takes a lighter approach t to the subject.

Wills and Estate Planning for Teachers Wills and Estate Planning for Teachers By Kenneth Vercammen, Esq. Teachers work on an average more than 80000 hours in a lifetime. In spite of all our resources and the assets we earn during our lifetime, the vast majority of Americans do not take the time to create the legal instructions to guide the court or a guardian. National statistics indicate that more than 50% of Americans die without leaving a will. In the absence of a Will or other legal arrangement to distribute property at death, the State may step in to administer the estate and decide who gets custody of your children and handle their money. This process is called the law of intestacy. The result can be lengthy delays in the distribution of your estate, court battles between relatives and your children being raised by someone you do not favor. Where there's No Will ... Your assets go to whoever a state law says receives the assets, or to the government itself! A Will should be a statement to the things you truly care about: your spouse, your children, your parents, your friends, and your charities. If you leave no Will or your Will is declared invalid because it was improperly prepared or is not admissible to probate: 1. People you dislike or people who dislike and ignore you may get your assets. 2. State law determines who gets assets, not you 3. Additional expenses will be incurred and extra work will be required to qualify an administrator-Surety Bond, additional costs and legal fees 4. You lose the ...

Jim Kiley talks about Living Trusts - Part 1 Jim: The interesting estate case, interesting is probably not the word, sometimes they get more complex than they need to be. What's becoming popular now are revocable living trusts, and we'll advice certain of our clients to use a revocable living trust in lieu of a will. It is essentially a pass through. It's as if you haven't relinquished control when you create a revocable living trust. You put all of your assets into the trust, you are the co-trustee. It's not an estate tax mitigation tool. It's not used in that sense. It's used in lieu of a will to avoid probate. We've advised it for many of our clients in certain contexts where there is extended family, and the estate or the person making the will, or the guarantor, in this case the person creating the trust, doesn't know who they are. We had a client, not too long ago, an elderly woman who had some relatives from Italy, and her husband was predeceased, she had no children. So under New York State law the intestacy statue branches out into this extended family. While you can make a will, and direct that your state be given to charity, or the person next door or whomever, the will will not past your probate until that extended family, or the heirs of law as defined in the New York state law, are notified. The problem with this particular client was, not only did she not know where they were, in any case she didn't know who they were. She had cousins in Italy, she had a general idea how many they were, but certainly ...
