Understanding wrongful death cases in Oklahoma
Under Oklahoma law, wrongful death cases can be initiated when a spouse, parent or child is fatally injured due to medical malpractice, a motor vehicle accident, a defective product or another situation caused by someone’s careless, negligent or wrongful conduct. Such tragedies cause enormous pain and grief, and they create financial hardship for survivors of the deceased. The law allows a personal representative of the decedent to file a wrongful death suit on behalf of the beneficiaries. Compensation is available for:
- Medical and burial expenses, reimbursed to the person or entity that paid them, including the decedent’s estate
- The loss of consortium for a surviving spouse
- The decedent’s mental pain and anguish suffered from the time of the injury until death
- The family’s financial loss
- The grief and loss of companionship suffered by the children and the parents of the decedent
- Punitive or exemplary damages to make an example of the negligent party
Preventing future losses by holding wrongdoers accountable
In times of grief, it is often difficult for family members to know what to do. Compelling the responsible party to pay damages for the negligent act will not bring your loved one back, but it may prevent another family from suffering a similar loss by warning the public of the risks of negligence. Drivers, employers, manufacturers and others whose negligence contributes to an untimely death need to know that they will have to answer to their victims. Ryan Bisher Ryan & Simons uses our knowledge, experience and resources to hold the responsible party accountable for the harm they caused.
