How do I know if I have a personal injury claim?
You should have an attorney review the details of your accident to determine if you are able to pursue a personal injury claim. If it can be established that the other party was negligent, and that negligence contributed to your injuries, you may be able to pursue a claim.
What is a statute of limitation?
A statute of limitation is the time limit you are given to file a personal injury claim, which usually starts on the date of the accident. Once this time period passes, you give up your right to sue the negligent party for compensation. In Oklahoma, most claims have a statute of limitation of two years.
How much is my claim worth?
No two cases are alike, so it is important that you have an experienced attorney evaluate your case for an accurate assessment. In general, victims may be able to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, property damages, pain and suffering, wrongful death, and other losses associated with the accident.
Do I have to go to trial?
Not necessarily. Most personal injury cases are settled between the parties without filing a lawsuit. In fact, insurance companies are typically more willing to settle a case than take it to trial because filing a lawsuit is a time-consuming and expensive process.
While we aim to settle for the maximum amount, in some cases, filing a lawsuit may be necessary in order to obtain the full recover you deserve.
