A Wrongful Death Lawyer Can Pursue Damages for You
Losing a loved one – a husband, wife, father, mother or child – is emotionally devastating. When your loss was caused by somebody else’s negligence, our wrongful death attorneys in Oklahoma understand that it’s natural to feel a rush of emotions all at once. You may feel confused, angry, and have concerns about the future well-being of yourself and your family. While no amount of money can truly compensate for the loss of a loved one, you could be entitled to compensation that could help recover monetary losses associated with the death of a loved one.
At the Law Offices of Jeff Martin, we have experience advocating for families of wrongful death victims in Tulsa and communities throughout Oklahoma. A wrongful death case may arise from an incident at a hospital or an accident in the workplace. Attorney Jeff Martin understands the common defenses used to combat a wrongful death lawsuit. A wrongful death lawyer can examine the facts in the wrongful death case to make sure the individual or parties responsible are held accountable.
When a Wrongful Death Results Because of Negligence, Turn to an Experienced Advocate
After a loved one dies, you may be facing very real financial turmoil: funeral expenses, medical bills, lost wages, and other losses. A wrongful death lawsuit in Oklahoma enables the family of the deceased to recover monetary losses associated with the death of their loved one. A qualified attorney can help families obtain damages for a wrongful death.
The law provides a means to protect the spouse, children and parents of the deceased when they’ve lost their lives as a result of another person’s negligence. Such cases are civil actions rather than criminal actions.
Your claim also is about more than money. It’s about sending a message that careless or reckless behavior will not be tolerated.
It’s difficult it is to come to grips with filing a wrongful death suit after losing a loved one. It’s important to keep in mind that a delay could affect your legal rights. Depending on which state you file a wrongful death suit in, you may have up to three years beyond the death of your loved one to file a case. In Oklahoma, a wrongful death action must be filed within two years of the date of death.
