Oklahoma Wrongful Death Claims

Under Oklahoma law, a wrongful death occurs when someone acts negligently and another person dies as a result. According to the statute, a personal representative representing the deceased and their heirs or beneficiaries to the individual’s estate can legally file a wrongful death claim. Because wrongful death deals with another party’s negligence, error, or omission, a wrongful death claim can be filed even when the other party has been found innocent in a criminal case. 

Wrongful death can happen when there is gross negligence in a car or traffic wreck, medical malpractice, or the callous and wrongful act of a big corporation. These are just a few examples of wrongful death cases Tim Gilpin has successfully helped his clients win millions in justified compensation for:

  • Mesothelioma
  • Medical malpractice
  • Auto deaths
  • Semi-tractor truck deaths
  • Pharmacy prescription error
  • Train wreck
  • Auto-pedestrian accidents
  • Misuse or failure to safely lock away a firearm
  • Police abuse of force

Oklahoma has a two (2) year statute of limitation period that applies to a wrongful death action, which makes acting fast crucial when such a tragedy occurs. Talk to Oklahoma’s experienced wrongful death attorney Tim Gilpin as soon as possible. 

Compensation After a Wrongful Death Occurs

Emotions ripple through you and your loved ones upon the sudden and unnecessary death of a loved one. Then the bills come due, bringing a whole new set of challenges when you should be taking space to process your grief and mourn your loved one. 

Although every case is different, here are some of the damages that may be covered under Oklahoma law in your wrongful death claim.

Loss of Income

A wrongful death claim may recover some of the lost income, lost benefits, lost retirement, or potential income loss experienced in the untimely absence of a loved one. 

Medical Expenses

A wrongful death claim can help recover the cost of hospital visits, medical care, surgeries, medications, and other healthcare expenses incurred due to another party's negligence. 

Pain and Suffering

A wrongful death claim may cover the pain and suffering experienced during your loved one’s final days including mental or emotional distress. 

Funeral and Burial Expenses

Wrongful death compensation can help recover the cost of your loved one’s funeral and burial services. 

Loss of Companionship

No amount of compensation can replace the person you’ve lost. But when a wrongful death deprives loved ones of a parent, spouse, or companion, you may be owed damages.

Great lawyer

Due to reckless drivers over the years I've had to use Tim Gilpin more than once but I can certainly attest that he is one of the best around. He is competent, through, diligent and knows the law & how insurance companies operate! Once he's on the case I know that I have nothing to worry about other than healing. Something he insists on (your health and healing). I have referred others to him as well over the years - I too was fortunate to be referred by a friend that swears by him. He's definitely the lawyer to have if you ever are involved in an auto wreck!
