Death Claims & Medical Malpractice

There is no way to make up for the death of a loved one. The only option you have as a survivor is to make the responsible party pay for the loss. Losses under 12 Oklahoma Statute Section 1053 include:

  • Companionship
  • Financial Support, including lost wages
  • Pain and Suffering during the event that led to the death
  • Medical bills incurred
  • Burial Expenses

Your loss is difficult enough without having to defend the life of your loved one. Insurance companies and their representatives will often times impune the credibility and character of your spouse, parent or child in an effort to limit what they have to pay. These kind of arguments are nearly impossible for the remaining parties to listen to without having strong emotional reactions. It is important to have experience on your side to defend your deceased loved one and to maximize what that person meant to you. Common wrongful death claims result from:

  • Auto Accidents
  • Trucking Accidents
  • On the Job Injuries
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Failed Surgeries
  • Boating Accidents
  • Airplane Crash
  • Product Defects

The simple fact is that not every death is the result of someone else’s negligence. When it does occur as someone else’s fault, however, it is the moral and legal obligation of that party and his insurance company to fairly compensate the survivors.
