Identifying What Happened and Who Was Responsible
Oregon’s wrongful death law was created by the state legislature to make sure that those responsible for fatal acts of negligence do not escape responsibility for their actions. Under the law, the family members of an accident victim can pursue a claim against the responsible party.
Whether or not to pursue wrongful death litigation is a very personal decision. The advice of an experienced lawyer can play an important role as your family considers your options.
Filing a wrongful death lawsuit enables you to gather evidence and uncover the truth about what happened and who was responsible. It also allows you to pursue financial compensation for funeral expenses, loss of financial support to your family, and noneconomic damages.
