Helping Loved Ones After a Fatal Crash

But you might be thinking: "What does it matter now? The damage has been done, there is no bringing them back."
This is true. We cannot turn back the clock and what has been done, cannot be undone. But through a wrongful death claim you may be able to secure compensation that can help your family overcome any immediate burdens you may be facing. With such collisions often come unforeseen expenses such as:
- Medical bills
- Funeral expenses
- Therapeutic services
- Property damage
- Long and short term income loss
You also may be wondering: "But aren't there legal fees involved?"
Many law firms will charge a considerable sum to review your case. From the moment you walk in the door the meter is running. But Car Accident Help doesn't charge a thing until we've won your case. That is our guarantee to you - we'll take care of your case, while you take the time to heal. So don't delay, call (405) 285-4357 and schedule a free case consultation today.
Am I Eligible to File An Oklahoma Wrongful Death Claim?
Under Oklahoma Statute, title 12 - section 1053, any "personal representative" of the deceased may take action against the negligent party. In most cases, this means the spouse, parents, or children of the victim will file, but not necessarily. Anyone who is considered a representative of the estate can file a claim. If you are unsure whether you qualify or not, give our office a call to discuss the particulars of your situation.
How Long Do I Have To File a Wrongful Death Claim in OK?
Generally speaking, not long. As with most states, Oklahoma grants a two year window in which you are able to file your claim, starting the moment after your loved one's passing. However, while this may seem like an extended period of time, two years can go by in the blink of an eye - especially when it comes to legal matters. Additionally, this time frame can be reduced if you are filing against a city, state, or municipal agency. If you are currently weighing your legal options, we highly recommend speaking with one of our qualified Oklahoma motorcycle accident attorneys, to help expedite any action you plan to take. Don't let the time run out on your family's rights.
