When a person is killed because of someone else’s negligence, the surviving family members have the right to bring a wrongful death claim against the responsible parties. Wrongful death may result from:

 

  • Medical malpractice
     

  • Traffic accidents, which may involve trucks, tractor-trailers, commercial motor vehicles, automobiles, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, or pedestrians
     

  • Construction accidents
     

  • Oilfield accidents
     

  • Train accidents
     

  • Nursing home neglect
     

  • Police use of excessive force or other civil rights violations
     

  • Dangerous conditions on property
     

  • Defective products
     

  • Explosions
     

  • Assaults
     

  • Other types of negligence, recklessness, carelessness, or wrongdoing
     

Oklahoma law allows the surviving spouse, children (including adult children), and parents to recover damages for the wrongful death of a loved one. Theses damages may include loss of financial support, grief, pain and suffering, loss of companionship, medical expenses, and funeral expenses. Our wrongful death attorneys aggressively pursue compensation for surviving family members and seek to hold individuals, businesses, hospitals, and other wrongdoers accountable.
