Quick Answers from Our Attorneys

Q: Who can file a wrongful death claim in Oregon?

“A family member of the deceased is typically the one who brings a wrongful death claim to court in Oregon. In most cases, this family member is a surviving spouse, child, or parent of the deceased person. However, other family members are also allowed to bring wrongful death claims to court and recover damages, including surviving grandparents, stepchildren, or stepparents.”

Q: How long do I have to file a wrongful death claim in Oregon?

“There is a statute of limitations that limits the time available to file a wrongful death case in court. In Oregon, a wrongful death claim must be filed within 3 years of the deceased person’s final injury.”
