Understanding Wrongful Death Laws in Oklahoma

In the state of Oklahoma, wrongful death is defined as death caused by someone else’s reckless, negligent, or intentional actions. Common situations that could lead to a wrongful death include car accidents, truck accidents, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, industrial accidents, motorcycle accidents, and product liability incidents.

In the state of Oklahoma, the representative of the decedent’s estate may file a wrongful death claim. The representative is often the decedent’s spouse, but parents and children may also be appointed. If your loved one was killed by the negligence or intentional conduct of another person, you only have a certain amount of time to file a claim. The statute of limitations for wrongful death claims in Oklahoma is 2 years from the date of your loved one’s death.

Depending on the situation, you may be able to receive a settlement for:

  • Pain and suffering of the decedent prior to death
  • Medical expenses for the decedent’s final injury or illness
  • Loss of consortium, companionship, and care
  • Loss of wages and benefits
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Punitive damages, if applicable

Punitive damages are designed to punish the defendant for gross negligence or disregard for human life. For example, if your loved one was killed by a drunk driver, you may be able to receive punitive damages. It is important to gather evidence to build your case. Evidence may include witness statements, pictures or videos of the accident, police reports, and medical records. Our Stillwater wrongful death attorneys are not afraid to take your case to court. We understand you are going through a very difficult time, and will walk you through the process as you seek justice.
