What is the statute of limitations in Oklahoma for wrongful death?

The statute of limitations in Oklahoma for a wrongful death claim is two years, starting on the date of the person’s death. If you miss this window of opportunity and fail to file your claim before the statute of limitations expires, the court will likely reject it, and you will lose your chance to recover compensation. A personal representative could have any of the following relationships with the deceased:

  • Spouse
  • Parent
  • Child
  • Sibling
  • Named in the deceased’s estate plan
  • Court-appointed representative

Compensation for your losses

Our Oklahoma City wrongful death attorneys understand that it may seem vulgar to assign a monetary figure to the loss of a loved one. The bonds we have with those closest to us far exceed the limits of money, but this is the only way our current justice system can best rectify an injustice, such as losing a dear parent, child, sibling, or spouse.

The courts will often recognize the following damages and order compensation for:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • The deceased’s pain and suffering between injury and death
  • The deceased’s lost wages, benefits, and earning capability
  • Grief and mental anguish of the deceased’s survivors
  • Loss of companionship, guidance, and consortium
  • Punitive damages to punish and make an example of the liable party
