According to Oregon state law a wrongful death claim, or lawsuit, is in order when an individual has been killed as a result of the negligence of another person. This can be due to the defendant’s action or conduct, whether it is partially or 100% entirely their fault.
The law gives the victim’s family and beneficiaries a right to monetary compensation for their loss. They are entitled to money for the funeral, burial expenses, emotional damages, loss of medical insurance, loss of pension, loss of companionship, and loss of the future earnings the victim could have made.
If you or a person who has lost someone who is dear to you and believe that the death could have been totally prevented then you need to make an appointment with an Oregon personal injury lawyer. They will be able to assess the situation, evidence, and determine what needs to be done.
