Wrongful Death Actions In Oklahoma Car Accidents
A wrongful death means that the person died because of the carelessness or reckless actions of another person or negligence on the part of an entity. Our attorneys have handled fatal accidents in the Oklahoma City metro area and statewide, including:
- Car-truck collisions
- Deaths caused by drunk drivers
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian deaths
- Hit-and-run accidents
A person’s life cannot be quantified. Rather, wrongful death compensation reflects the survivors’ loss. This includes funeral costs, medical bills and the deceased’s projected income over his or her expected life span. Damages may also cover loss of consortium and companionship, loss of love and support, and loss of the person’s household contributions.
Our attorneys spend time with the family to understand these losses so that we can translate and portray them to the insurance adjusters or a jury.
