Ohio law states that the following people can bring a wrongful death claim against a negligent party:
Other family members, such as the deceased’s siblings or grandparents, can only recover damages if they can demonstrate that they have suffered compensable losses due to death.

This means that surviving family members must file their claim within two years from the date of their loved one’s death. In cases where a person’s death was caused by a dangerous or defective product, the statute of limitations may be extended to up to 10 years after the date of death.
