Fatal car accidents are the first event in a long list of events that occur for the family members that are left behind after the accident. When you lose a loved one because of the actions of another driver, you might decide that you need to hold the driver accountable for his or her actions. One way that this can occur is through a wrongful death lawsuit. We know that you probably need time to grieve after your loved one's death, but there are time limits that you must be aware of if you are planning on filing a wrongful death lawsuit in Oklahoma.
In Oklahoma, you have two years after your loved one's accident to file the claim. This means that you do have time to get through the funeral and have some time to grieve; however, you must get started on your claim soon enough that we have time to investigate the case and prepare the case.
There are several factors that you must consider when you are filing a wrongful death claim. One of the factors is that there is more at stake than just money. The wrongful death claim can help you to get closure after the accident since the person will have to answer for his or her actions.
You should also realize that there are often more parties or people who can be listed as defendants in the case. Insurance companies and similar parties might also be held accountable. We can help you to determine who should be held accountable and list these people and parties on your case.
