Wrongful Death and Fatalities in Oregon: Seeking Justice for Loss
Losing a loved one is a devastating experience, and when it happens due to the negligence or wrongful actions of another, the pain can be even more profound. Surviving loved ones must grapple with unanswerable questions and the uncertainty that most experience in times of mortal loss. Often, family members are so consumed with grief that they don’t pursue compensation and redress when they are entitled to it.

It’s crucial to understand your rights and options during this difficult time. We understand that you need time to grieve. Let the experienced team at Youd Law handle the legal complications of a wrongful death claim while you focus on the process of healing.

In Oregon, the right to file a wrongful death claim is typically limited to the deceased person's surviving spouse, children, and parents. In some cases, other individuals who were financially dependent on the deceased may also have a legal right to pursue a claim.
A wrongful death claim is a legal action brought by the surviving family members or representatives of a deceased person against the party or parties responsible for the death. The purpose is to seek compensation for the losses and damages suffered as a result of the wrongful act, neglect, or default.
No, wrongful death does not necessarily imply murder. Wrongful death cases can arise from a wide range of circumstances, including accidents, medical malpractice, and other negligent actions. While some cases may involve criminal charges, a wrongful death claim is a civil action seeking compensation for the losses suffered by the surviving family members.
