The statute of limitations for a wrongful death claim in Oklahoma is two years from the date of the accident.
Statute of Limitations for a Wrongful Death Claim in Oklahoma
It is extremely important that you act in a timely manner. The insurance company knows that you are grieving. It is understandably difficult to manage a legal case such as this while you are grief-stricken. We understand the anguish you feel, but if you want to seek rightful compensation, you have to act within the statute of limitations, or time limits of the wrongful death rules. In Oklahoma, you have two years in which to file a claim or settle your case. While that may seem like a long time, it is not necessarily that long.
With any case, you need to do some prep work in order to successful bring your claim. If you wait one year and 364 days to contact an attorney, it is going to be next to impossible to bring a claim. There are things we need to accomplish as a team before we can bring this claim. Therefore, talking to an attorney right away will make this easier on yourself and your Stillwater wrongful death attorney.
