Wrongful Death Litigation
We have secured wrongful death settlements and verdicts for any negligent death — drowning victims, electrocution, LP gas explosions, medical negligence, and a deadly crash. Our attorneys aggressively investigate the catastrophic event that took your family member’s life to establish liability of the person or entity responsible.
Under Oklahoma law, damages for a wrongful death suit include funeral and medical costs, and lost earnings over the victim’s projected lifespan. Losses can include lost contributions (household duties, child care, coaching and guidance), as well as loss of love, affection and consortium. Additional damages may be recovered if the deceased experienced conscious pain and suffering prior to death, as opposed to being killed instantly.
The elements of damages for death of a minor child are different, because there is no baseline for earnings or household contributions. We can only demonstrate how the deceased made life better for others, and ask the insurance company or a jury to fairly compensate parents for their profound loss.
