Eligibility and Requirements  for Pursuing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Cause of Death 

You may only file a wrongful death claim when your loved one was killed by the negligent or harmful actions of another party. This does not include deaths caused by accidents or illness, but may include deaths caused by medical malpractice or car accidents. 

Breach of Duty 

In order to file a wrongful death claim, you will need to prove that the victim was owed a specific duty of care by the defendant. You will also need to show that the negligent actions of the other party directly led to the death of your loved one and that the death has caused damages you need to be compensated for. 

Relation to Victim

In order to recover damages for the wrongful death of a loved one, you need to qualify as an eligible party. In Oklahoma, this is limited to a "personal representative" of the estate, which is often a spouse, parent, child, or sibling.
