According to Oklahoma law, a personal representative of the deceased estate is eligible to file a wrongful death claim. If such a person does not exist, the court can appoint one. Regardless of whether or not the individual filing a claim is related to the deceased, any compensation recovered will be distributed among surviving family members and the deceased’s estate.
Additionally, the statute of limitations for a wrongful death claim in the state of Oklahoma is two years. This means you have two years from the date of your loved one’s passing to file a claim or you will most likely lose your right to do so.
