Oklahoma Car Accident Victim Compensation

Oklahoma is a Fault or “Tort” state, not a “No-Fault” state. Therefore, drivers determined to be at fault in an auto accident can be held accountable for damages in a car accident. Oklahoma has a minimum insurance coverage requirement for damages in the event of a car accident as well. Unfortunately, not all drivers carry the minimum coverage. According to the Insurance Information Institute more than 25 percent of all drivers in Oklahoma are uninsured, i.e. Uninsured Motorists. 

Additionally, Oklahoma has modified comparative negligence, which is legalese for each driver involved in a crash can be assigned a percentage, out of 100, of liability. No driver assigned more than 50 percent of fault may recover damages from an accident. 

Factors in Car Accident At-Fault Analysis

Many factors that are unique to each accident will weigh in determining your claim:

  • Does the at-fault driver have adequate insurance?
  • Have you received medical treatment?
  • Have you lost wages or earnings?
  • Do you have pain and suffering?
  • How much property damage did you suffer?
  • Will you fully recover from your injury?

Key Factors in Car Accident Cases

Whether you believe you are injured after an accident or not, it is important to be seen by a medical professional. Even, if you have no immediate signs of an injury. Some injuries, including sever injuries, may not have signs or symptoms for days after an accident. Early intervention is key. 

A qualified physician may be able to identify sever injuries before you experience any symptoms, including brain injuries or spinal injuries. Additionally, early medical evaluations may benefit your case if you decide to move forward with a personal injury claim. 

Remember, it is important to document everything you can after your car accident, including witness information, photographs of the accident scene and damage to each vehicle, document injuries you suffered, and obtain an Accident Report by a police officer. More details about what to do after an accident can be found on our page, Seven Key Steps After Car Accident

Do not speak about your fault or involvement at the scene of the accident. Oftentimes drivers and passengers in a car accident will speak about their fault or what they should have done that could have prevented an accident. There are many technicalities that go into a determination of fault for a car accident in Oklahoma. It is important to protect yourself and your claim by not speaking about your fault or involvement in the accident to anyone, except your Oklahoma Car Accident Attorney.

When do I have to file my Car Accident Case?

Although Oklahoma has a two (2) year Statute of Limitations for car accident victims to seek compensation for damages; time is of the essence in your car accident case. The likelihood of important witnesses remembering details of an accident and being able to find photographs or Accident Reports decreases over time. You may legally be permitted to file a claim two (2) years after an accident; however, the strength of your case and ability to discover evidence may be reduced if you wait.

"My experience with CANNON & ASSOCIATES was absolutely amazing. I hired John Cannon two days before my rebuttal statement was due back to the Staff Judge Advocate. Within that time frame he was able to talk to my Battery and Battalion Commanders, review my evidence, and help me write a rebuttal statement that help prove my case to them, the Brigade Commander and the Post Commanding General. Cannon worked thru the night to help me get the best results for me and my family. Due to his hard work and attention to detail I am still able to continue to serve my country and progress in my military career with no adverse actions on my record. I can not thank him enough on a job well done. Cannon showed me that he was invested in my case and I highly recommend you hire him when you need someone to represent you in a legal matter."
