Truck Accidents And Wrongful Death: What To Know
Because of their massive size and weight, crashes involving tractor-trailers have more fatalities than crashes involving other motor vehicles. Even if the impact of the accident did not cause death, serious injuries such as internal organ damage, traumatic brain injuries and loss of limbs can eventually prove fatal. As a surviving family member, you can respond to this difficult situation by getting reliable legal advice about your legal options, beginning with clarifying your eligibility to bring a wrongful death claim and proceeding in a timely manner.
First, determine whether you have legal standing to bring a wrongful death claim. If you are the spouse, parent or child of the deceased, you are likely eligible. Ask an attorney to help you understand your rights.
Next, find out when you should file the wrongful death claim, and against whom. If you are interested in filing a wrongful death claim, it is important to move quickly so your attorney will have time to build a strong case.
Oklahoma has a two-year statute of limitations for wrongful death lawsuits, meaning you must file the claim within two years of the date that your loved one died. If you miss this deadline, you forfeit the right to recover compensation for funeral costs, hospital bills, lost wages and any other damages.Ideally, put Warhawk Legal on your side as your truck accident law firm with plenty of time to build a strong case.
