Wrongful death lawsuits are some very difficult lawsuits to handle, not because of the complexities of these cases but because they revolve around someone losing his or her loved one. If you are in this position because your loved one died unexpectedly and due to someone's negligence, you should explore your right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.
We understand that you need to grieve your loved one's death. This is understandable. We want to make sure that you don't let the time limit for these cases pass you by. In Oklahoma, the statute of limitations for these cases is two years. Once this time limit passes, you can't file your claim so you must be sure to leave time to get the case together and filed.
A wrongful death lawsuit is so much more than just a way to get your loved one's final expenses and other financial impacts covered by the person who caused the accident. It is also a way that you can remind the person that his or her actions were unacceptable. It might also be a way to show other people that the negligence that was present in this case shouldn't be duplicated.
Ultimately, you have to decide what is best for you. Once you know what options you have, you can determine how you are going to handle your case. We can discuss these options with you so that you can determine how each one might impact your life.
