What is “Wrongful Death” in Moore?

In Oklahoma, a wrongful death occurs when someone dies due to the wrongful act or omission of another party. According to Oklahoma Statutes Title 12, § 1053, “A wrongful death action may be brought by the personal representative of the deceased person for the exclusive benefit of the surviving spouse, children, parents of the deceased, or the estate of the deceased person.”

Essentially, a wrongful death claim can be brought by the personal representative of the deceased’s estate whenever the deceased could have pursued a personal injury claim had they survived, providing a path to justice and compensation for the losses suffered by the deceased’s family or dependents.

Common Causes of Wrongful Death in Moore

Wrongful death can arise from a variety of circumstances, each bringing its own complexities to a legal case. Common causes include:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Workplace accidents
  • Defective products
  • Acts of violence 

Once we know the cause of your loved one’s wrongful death, we can identify the responsible party(s) and develop a legal strategy to hold them financially accountable for the tragic death of your loved one, and the losses their estate, family, and dependents have suffered as a result.

What Damages Are Possible in an Oklahoma Wrongful Death Case?

The types of compensation that may be recovered in a wrongful death lawsuit generally include:

  • Economic damages: Such as the deceased’s final medical bills, funeral expenses, and the loss of the deceased’s future earnings.
  • Non-economic damages: For the pain, suffering, and emotional distress experienced by the deceased before their death, and the loss of companionship and emotional distress experienced by the survivors of the deceased.
  • Punitive damages: In cases of gross negligence or malicious actions, to punish the wrongdoer and deter future misconduct.

Each category of damages addresses a different aspect of the losses suffered, aiming to provide comprehensive relief to your bereaved family.

How Long Do I Have to File a Wrongful Death Claim in Moore?

Oklahoma limits the amount of time a family has to file a wrongful death claim, which is generally two years from the date of the deceased person’s death. This time frame is extremely important, as failing to file within this period can result in the loss of your right to ever bring a claim.
