Wrongful death and survival actions
Wrongful deaths may arise from car accidents, truck wrecks, slip and falls, toxic exposure, assault, and defective products, to name a few scenarios. In general, a person is liable for the wrongful death of another if the fatal injury or illness was caused by a wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, unskillfulness, or default.
State law determines who can file wrongful death lawsuits.
In Texas, the people who may be eligible to file such an action include the deceased’s:
- Adoptive parents or children
In Oklahoma, only the personal representative of the deceased’s estate can file a wrongful death lawsuit. If the deceased person had a will, the personal representative should be named in the will. If the deceased died without a will (intestate), then the probate court will appoint a personal representative.
Compensation, answers, and justice
When someone else’s carelessness causes you substantial pain and loss, you deserve compensation to get your life back on track. Again, no amount of money can truly make up for the death of a loved one, but winning compensation can help to maintain your family’s quality of life and provide for the people left behind. It also provides a degree of accountability and closure and helps to prevent other families from being similarly harmed.
