Understanding Oregon Wrongful Death Claims

Wrongful death is called "wrongful" because someone did something to cause the death. For example, someone who drives recklessly (such as texting while driving or driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs) or who is negligent (such as not following safety precautions at a workplace or job site) can be the cause of a serious or fatal car accident.

If the person who died was a parent or your family breadwinner, there may be a larger claim for the loss of that parent and loss of that person's future wages.

Sometimes medical personnel take exhaustive measures to save someone, but the treatment fails. In these instances, your family may be facing large medical bills. In cases such as this, your family may seek recovery or get reimbursed for those medical expenses.

Car Accidents, Work Accidents And Wrongful Death

Sadly, there are many ways a person can be seriously injured or killed. Many times, it is in a car or truck accident. Some jobs, such as construction and fishing, are also dangerous. If you lost a spouse in an accident, speak with a caring and compassionate attorney who can hear your story and offer you your next best steps. This is crucial for those who have lost the family breadwinner.
