Calculating Compensation After an Oklahoma Car Accident
When you suffer injuries in an Oklahoma car accident, the substantial damages associated with the accident may leave you wondering how much compensation you can recover and how to know whether you have received a fair compensation offer from the insurance company.
At Dolman Law Group Accident Injury Lawyers, PA, we cannot guarantee the compensation you can recover after a car accident. Still, we can provide you with greater overall insight into how to calculate the damages you sustained in the accident.
Ultimately, the compensation you recover may depend on the insurance company that covers the liable party, the extent of your damages, and even whether you have a dedicated car accident lawyer on your side, fighting for your right to compensation.
When putting together an injury claim, our lawyers will start with a careful look at what medical bills you had to deal with as a direct result of your accident. Often, car accident injuries result in high medical bills: emergency care for your injuries, the cost of any procedures you need, durable medical equipment designed to help you recover independence and mobility, and the cost of physical and occupational therapy after your accident, for example.
Do not forget to include co-pay and deductible amounts as you calculate the medical expenses you faced after your car accident.
Your income losses can pile up fast after a serious car accident since your accident may prevent you from working. Talk to your lawyer about what time you missed after the accident, from right after the accident to the time missed for follow-up appointments and procedures.
Pain and Suffering
As part of your injury claim, you have the right to include a request for compensation for the suffering that followed your accident.
At Dolman Law Group Accident Injury Lawyers, PA, we strive to help our clients recover compensation for all their damages, including the ones that may not have a direct financial component.
Car Accidents in Oklahoma: Fast Facts
According to the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office, more than 66,000 car crashes occur across the state annually, resulting in more than 1,700 severe injuries, 6,900 minor injuries, and nearly 12,000 possible injuries. The majority of those accidents, around 31,000, occur on city streets. However, interstate highways also pose a potential danger to Oklahoma drivers, with more than 10,000 accidents occurring each year on the state's interstates.
Oklahoma allows up to two years from the date of an accident for car accident victims to file a claim that will allow them to pursue compensation for their injuries. If you allow more than two years to pass after your accident, the courts may refuse to hear your claim, and you may miss out on much-needed compensation.
Common Causes of Oklahoma Car Accidents
Often, car accidents occur because drivers make a mistake or commit an act of negligence that prevents them from navigating safely on the road.
Common acts of negligence include:
- Ignoring the rules of the road. Speeding, for example, substantially increases the risk of an accident and may lead to more severe injuries in the crash.
- Failing to yield. Failure to yield often causes serious injuries on the streets of Oklahoma.
- Driving while distracted. Oklahoma law makes it illegal to text and drive, one of the most common distractions on the road. However, many drivers engage in other reckless behavior while driving, including checking their music, changing air controls, or reaching into the back of the vehicle.
- Driving while inebriated. Drunk drivers often behave unpredictably, meaning other drivers cannot avoid collisions.
- Driving unsafely in icy conditions. During periods of heavy snow and ice, Oklahoma drivers may need to take extra precautions to reduce the risk of an accident. However, due to relatively infrequent snow and ice across the state, many drivers do not know how to drive safely in those conditions.
When a driver commits an act of negligence that leads to an accident, the accident victims usually have the right to file a claim for compensation from the liable driver's insurance company.
Filing a Claim: Fighting the Insurance Company Following an Oklahoma Accident
After a car accident, you may fight with the insurance company to get fair compensation for your damages. Insurance companies often focus on their financial needs rather than those of the victim injured in the accident.
Fighting with the insurance company can pose substantial strain, as the insurance company may deny liability for the accident, deny the extent of your injuries, or pressure you to accept a settlement offer that does not include compensation for all the damages you sustained.
At Dolman Law Group Accident Injury Lawyers, PA, we have the resources needed to fight aggressively against the challenges posed by big insurance companies. Our award-winning lawyers know the tactics insurance companies use to reduce the compensation they have to pay out after an accident, and we strive to provide our clients with the support they need to successfully navigate those challenges and recover the compensation they deserve.
Oklahoma Car Accident FAQ
What Should I Do About My Medical Bills After an Oklahoma Car Accident?
You can face large medical bills after an Oklahoma car accident, which can cause significant stress as you try to figure out your next steps. Start by using your health insurance if you carry it.
Next, contact your hospital's billing department or patient advocacy department to discuss your options for paying those medical costs over time since that can make medical care much more affordable and reduce the burden of your bills.
Finally, contact a car accident attorney at Dolman Law Group Accident Injury Lawyers, PA, to file a claim. While the party that caused your accident may not have to pay your medical bills directly, a car accident claim can provide much-needed funds to make it easier to manage your medical costs.
How Do I Know I Need a Car Accident Lawyer After an Accident in Oklahoma?
You need to connect with a car accident lawyer any time you suffer injuries in a car accident. An injury claim for a car accident can prove much more complicated, in general, than the average car accident claim, and you need a lawyer on your side who can help you navigate your claim and improve your ability to recover fair compensation.
You will also note that you need a lawyer when:
- The insurance company issues a settlement offer that ignores your losses and the challenges you have dealt with.
- The insurance company refuses to answer your questions or contact you after the accident.
- The insurance company ignores the extent of your injuries.
- The insurance company disputes liability for the accident.
You should also contact a car accident lawyer whenever you have questions about your car accident, claim, or right to compensation. A lawyer can provide essential guidance that makes navigating the claim process easier.
What Happens if I Do Not Pursue Medical Treatment Immediately After My Oklahoma Car Accident?
Pursuing medical treatment after a car accident can provide vital assistance that aids substantially in your recovery. However, adrenaline can mask signs of even severe injury, and you may not realize that you suffered those injuries right after your car crash.
If you do not pursue medical treatment immediately, you may still have the right to compensation for your injuries and the damages to your vehicle. It can prove much more difficult to prove when your injuries occurred, so you need a lawyer as soon as you recognize the extent of your injuries.
