Car accidents account for a majority of the personal injury and wrongful death claims made in this country. Thousands of individuals are injured in motor vehicle accidents every year on the roads and highways of Oklahoma. Such accidents can result in a wide range of injuries; from scrapes, bruises, and whiplash to broken bones, burns, internal injuries, brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries. Accident victims may require days, weeks, or months of medical care. Those suffering catastrophic injuries may need assistance for the rest of their lives. Those who are injured in car accidents due to the negligence or misconduct of another have the right to make a claim for legal compensation for damages from the responsible party. At our law firm, we can help you pursue compensation for your injury claim in such accidents.
Our Miami Oklahoma Car Accident Attorneys handle cases throughout Northeastern Oklahoma. If you have been in a car accident, it is important you speak with a lawyer regarding your case. The lawyer will explain your rights and obligations in order to preserve your claim and maximize your recovery.
Experience has taught us that a minor injury can often turn into a severe or devastating condition. People involved in an auto accident may experience pain days or weeks after the accident – these injuries are called soft-tissue injuries. If you have been in an accident, it is important you contact a Miami, OK auto accident lawyer for an evaluation of your case. Soft-tissue injuries are sometimes more painful and lasting than a simple broken bone. Whiplash is a common injury that might not be apparent at the time of the accident. It is important that you seek immediate medical attention. A delay in this treatment may lead to other serious conditions. Medical professionals may diagnose serious injuries that you aren’t aware of – and documenting the care you receive will be an essential piece of information for all treating experts. Many accident victims believe their insurance will be the only assistance they need. Oklahoma law requires minimal insurance coverage and many drivers don’t have insurance, despite the legal obligation to purchase it. You may not have enough protection to help pay for the long-term damages caused when someone without insurance, or with only the minimum liability limits, crashes into your vehicle. Car accidents can be caused by a number of factors, including drunk driving, improperly maintained roads and construction sites, and reckless or aggressive driving, to name a few.
A car accident victim very often needs the services of a lawyer to be able to handle losses and expenses such as the following:
- Immediate medical evaluation, treatment and follow up care.
- Replacement of lost wages.
