Shawnee (and Oklahoma City) Wrongful Death Attorneys

Fatal accidents are often preventable. If your loved one's death was caused by the negligent or wrongful actions of another person or entity, you have the right to pursue financial compensation for the irreversible loss you and your family have suffered. While financial compensation will not relieve you of grief or bring back your loved one (decedent), it can go a long way in helping you and your family cope with and cover losses, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of support
  • Loss of services
  • Lost prospect of inheritance
  • Loss of consortium
  • Pain and suffering experienced by the decedent before death

We are a top tier law firm in Oklahoma, and we have achieved national recognition for our results in a range of serious personal injury cases.

Pursuing A Wrongful Death Lawsuit

  • Who can make a claim? Immediate family members, including spouses, children and parents are the most common distributees in a wrongful death lawsuit. The personal representative of the decedent's estate is the only one who may bring a wrongful death suit.
  • How are damage awards distributed? Damages in a wrongful death settlement or verdict are awarded to the estate and distributed according to the decedent's will.
  • How are damages and losses calculated? The court and jury will consider a number of circumstances, including the age, character and condition of the decedent, earning capacity, life expectancy, health, education and the circumstances of distributees.

Our attorneys will present your best possible case, using all available evidence of future earning capacity while establishing the needs of your family and the value of the decedent's contributions to the family.

Whether your loved one died in a fatal car accident or motorcycle accident, from an employment-related accident, because of medical malpractice, due to a defective product or drug, from exposure to a hazardous substance or because of someone else's criminal behavior, we can help you. Punitive damages may even be recoverable in the case of malicious wrongdoing.
