Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Oregon?

Under Oregon state law, family members and beneficiaries of deceased individuals can file for damages through a wrongful death claim. Family members include the deceased's spouse, children, parents, grandparents, or other family members. If the deceased has no surviving family members, a personal representative of the estate may bring a wrongful death action on behalf of the deceased.

What Compensation Can I Recover in Wrongful Death Actions?

A wrongful death claim can allow plaintiffs to recover compensation such as funeral/burial expenses, lost wages, lost benefits, medical bills related to the final injury, and loss of companionship. In some rare cases where the defendant exhibited extreme negligence or acted with malicious intent, punitive damages may also be awarded by a jury. Punitive damages are typically requested in cases involving criminal actions and drunk driving fatalities.

How Long Do I Have to File a Wrongful Death Claim?

According to Oregon Statutes §30.020, wrongful death claims can be brought forward no more than three years after the accident that caused death. Those who are found guilty of negligence or wrongdoing may be held liable for their wrongs and forced to pay restitution and damages for suffering and loss to the family of the deceased person. If you are grieving the loss of a family member, contact our firm as soon as possible.
