Wrongful death cases we deal with at our law firm
Wrongful death is a legal term used to describe any accident that results in a fatality due to someone else's reckless or negligent behavior. In Oklahoma City, wrongful death cases can cover a wide range. Some of the most common cases we deal with at our law firm include:
- Fatal motor vehicle accidents
- Swimming pool drownings
- Fatal work accidents (including ones at construction sites)
- Deadly medical malpractice cases
- Fatal dog attacks
This is just a small sampling of some of the cases we handle at our law firm. Whatever the circumstances of your particular case, we urge you to contact us as soon as possible to learn more about your legal options.
You can count on us when it matters most
It's important to talk to a lawyer as soon as possible for several reasons. First, there's a deadline for taking legal action after a wrongful death. In Oklahoma, the deadline (known as the statute of limitations) is two years from the date of a person's death. That might seem like a long time. But the reality is the longer you wait, the harder it often becomes to build a strong legal case. Evidence can disappear. Memories can fade. That's why we want to get straight to work on your potential claim.
Another reason why it's important to begin work on such cases right away is because the insurance company for the person or business at fault is likely doing the same thing. They're looking for any excuse to reduce or deny your claim. That's because there are often thousands or even millions of dollars at stake.
That's not right. That's why we take such cases so seriously in Oklahoma City. We know how to negotiate effectively with insurance companies. And if they refuse to cooperate, we're prepared to take them - or anyone else who stands in our way - to court.
