What Constitutes a Wrongful Death?

Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult and painful experiences anyone can endure. And when a loved one’s death was due to the negligence of another person or party, it feels even more traumatic for surviving family members.

At Parrish DeVaughn Injury Lawyers, we know the challenges that grieving families face after the loss of a loved one. In addition to lost companionship, support, and love, they also face uncertain futures due to lost income.

Families who file wrongful death lawsuits after a negligence-related death can recover compensation for their losses. However, these claims are often complicated, and they can benefit from the assistance of experienced and dedicated legal teams.

Knowledge of the Law is Key When Filing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

There are many types of accidents and scenarios that can lead to wrongful deaths, including medical malpractice events, motor vehicle crashes, workplace injuries, and defective products and medications. But losing a loved one due to another person’s or party’s mistake isn’t always enough for a wrongful death lawsuit to be valid.

Oklahoma’s statutes define wrongful deaths as situations “when the death of one is caused by the wrongful act of another.” This means that the deceased was harmed due to another party’s intentional, reckless, or negligent conduct.

While it’s easy to claim that someone else’s behaviors led to the death of another, proving that fact is another matter entirely. As such, wrongful death lawsuits are best left up to legal teams who know state and understand how insurance companies try to avoid paying full settlements to victims’ families.
