Oklahoma attorney Glendell Nix of Nix Law Group explains the grounds for a wrongful death case and who is eligible to seek compensation by filing a wrongful death suit.
A wrongful death case is where the negligence or wrongful conduct of an individual or a company such as a hospital, a trucking company or manufacturer of a product has caused the death of an individual. Under Oklahoma law, certain individuals can recover damages for wrongful death. The statutes specifically say that the surviving spouse, the children, and the parents may recover damages for wrongful death.
