In Oklahoma, there is a two-year statute of limitations governing the filing of wrongful death claims in the state.

Why Hiring an Experienced Wrongful Death Lawyer is Important
In some types of personal injury lawsuits, the statute of limitations may be flexible, beginning only after you discover or should have discovered that your injury was caused by another person’s negligence or intentional misconduct. This is the way most medical malpractice lawsuits work, since the extent of harm caused by a medical error may not be immediately evident. For wrongful death claims in Oklahoma however, this is not the case. If you suspect that the death of your loved one was caused by the negligence of another person, you aren’t afforded the luxury of waiting until you know for sure. For this reason, enlisting the help of an experienced wrongful death attorney right away is critical to beginning the process of pursuing legal action.
Situations Commonly Resulting in a Wrongful Death Claim
Wrongful death claims in Oklahoma may be filed under circumstances in which a person dies in a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, because of medical malpractice or a defective product, as a result of an incident involving nursing home abuse or premise liability laws, or virtually any other situation resulting in the death of a person because of another person’s negligence. Here at Oklahoma Legal Center, our attorneys understand how devastating it is to suddenly lose a loved one, especially when the wrongful death is caused by the negligence or intentional wrongdoing of another person. We also understand how difficult it can be to pursue legal action when you are in the process of grieving the loss of a loved one.
