What Can Wrongful Death Claims Pay For In Oklahoma?

According to 12 OK Stat § 1053 (2022), wrongful death claims can pay for the following

  • Medical and Burial Expenses. These expenses “shall be distributed to the person or governmental agency as defined in Section 5051.1 of Title 63 of the Oklahoma Statutes who paid these expenses, or to the decedent’s estate if paid by the estate.”
  • Loss of Consortium and Grief of Surviving Spouse. These damages “shall be distributed to the surviving spouse.”
  • Mental Pain and Anguish Suffered by the Decedent. These damages “shall be distributed to the surviving spouse and children, if any, or next of kin in the same proportion as personal property of the decedent.” This means that the damages would be distributed to those survivors in the same manner that they would’ve received it if this was the individual’s estate plan or will.
  • Pecuniary Loss. Pecuniary loss is defined as the financial loss experienced by the family. “The pecuniary loss to the survivors based upon properly admissible evidence with regard thereto including, but not limited to, the age, occupation, earning capacity, health habits, and probable duration of the decedent’s life, which must inure to the exclusive benefit of the surviving spouse and children, if any, or next of kin, and shall be distributed to them according to their pecuniary loss.” This means that the money received from this compensation is meant exclusively for the benefit of the surviving spouse, children, if any, or the closest living relatives. The distribution of this compensation is based on the financial losses each suffered.
  • Grief and Loss of Companionship. This loss of companionship “shall be distributed to them according to their grief and loss of companionship.” This means the damages will be distributed in proportion to the extent of the grief experienced by the survivors.
