Do I Have a Case?

While the circumstances of each motor vehicle accident case can vary, they all share the common thread of injuries that resulted from an accident caused by someone else. The following factors could help you decide if you have a case worth pursuing.

Common Car Accident Injuries

Our team works with people who have suffered severe injuries, such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Concussions
  • Whiplash
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Bruises and lacerations

Often, insurance companies undervalue the true cost of car accident injuries and the impacts they have on your everyday life. We work with doctors, care planners, and other specialists to ensure that you are treated fairly.

Common Causes of Car Accidents

Most car accidents are caused by negligence. In other words, one or more drivers did not exercise reasonable care on the road, and someone got hurt. Examples of negligence include:

  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Speeding
  • Ignoring posted traffic signs
  • Reckless driving
  • Distracted driving

Often, the root causes of car crashes can be hard to prove, especially if there were few witnesses or one driver is lying about what happened. An experienced attorney will use sophisticated tactics to piece together what really happened and prove it, for example by working with an accident reconstructionist, or by identifying (and protecting) car event data recorders, dash cam footage, and other sources of key evidence.

Are You Within the Time Frame to File a Case?

The statute of limitations is the time limit to file a lawsuit for a car accident injury. In Oklahoma, you have two years from the time of the accident and injury to file a lawsuit for the compensation you deserve. However, there can be exceptions to this law, so it’s important to discuss your circumstances with an experienced car accident attorney to ensure you don’t miss any important deadlines.

If you didn’t see your situation represented here, don’t lose hope. If you were injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you likely have a case worth pursuing. Our experienced Oklahoma City car accident lawyers are here to review your case at no charge to you and guide you through the process of seeking the compensation you deserve for your losses. Contact us today to get started.

How Much Is My Case Worth?

Settlements for car accident injuries can vary, depending on the circumstances of the case and the associated accident- and injury-related expenses. You can demand compensation for expenses related to your injuries, such as:

  • Medical expenses, including emergency room visits, doctor visits, surgeries, medication, and therapy. This includes not only medical bills you’ve already incurred, but also estimated expenses for future surgeries or treatment you’re likely to need.
  • Lost wages for time missed, paid time off, or sick time used for medical appointments or hospitalization.
  • Potential future wages, if the injury affects your ability to work in the short or long term. If you’re able to return to work but at reduced capacity or in a lower-paying job, you can claim the difference.
  • Non-economic damages, such as physical pain, suffering, emotional anguish, loss or enjoyment of life, or loss of the benefits of relationship with a loved one.

For serious car accident-related injuries, calculating fair compensation is complicated and often requires carefully reviewing your medical records, speaking with doctors and life care planners, and knowing how to document and value non-economic damages. But because the insurance company wants to settle your car accident claim as quickly and cheaply as possible, your first settlement offer will likely be for only a fraction of what your case is truly worth.

The Wolf Pack is here to help you seek every penny you deserve. Our Oklahoma City, OK car accident attorneys will go into the details of your case to ensure you seek the maximum compensation amount possible.


Common Car Accident Injuries: Did This Happen to You?

If you’ve suffered one of these common injuries or any injury after a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation.

Head and Brain Injuries

Brain injuries are some of the most severe types of injuries from car accidents. Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, can result in lifelong consequences, from loss of coordination to severe mood swings, personality changes, and crippling chronic pain. This can leave you unable to work or even maintain your relationships.

Some of the symptoms of brain injuries can be subtle and won’t show up on medical scans. It’s important to work with an experienced attorney who is familiar with TBI cases and knows how to collect and present evidence that supports your case.

Loss of Limb or Paralysis

Another potential serious injury from a car wreck involves the loss of a limb or potential paralysis. This can happen in the accident itself, or you can end up needing to have a limb amputated. The lifelong effects of paralysis can be utterly devastating.

Broken Bones

Broken bones are some of the most common injuries sustained in car accidents. While some heal on their own in a matter of weeks with proper care, others can require serious surgeries and result in disastrous consequences to your quality of life.

Spine and Neck Injuries

Car accident victims commonly suffer from whiplash, which can cause serious neck pain and discomfort. The most severe and well-known result of a spinal injury is paralysis, but spinal and neck injuries can take many forms. They can result in loss of coordination, loss of sensation in the limbs, chronic pain, and even persistent headaches.

Proving Fault After a Car Accident

The key factor in collecting compensation for the harm you’ve suffered is the ability to prove that the other driver was at fault for your accident and injuries. Proving fault can be tricky, but at its most basic level, you must show that the other driver acted contrary to the way in which a reasonable person would act, and it caused you to get hurt.

There are three factors you and your attorney will need to prove to establish the other driver’s negligence:

  • They violated their basic duty of care toward other drivers on the road.
  • This violation was the direct or proximate cause of the accident you were involved in.
  • You were injured as a direct result of the accident.

Proving these factors can be easier said than done, especially if the involved drivers disagree about what happened, and you don’t know what evidence you need to collect. If there’s any gray area, the insurance company will try to argue that you were at least partially at fault for the crash. That’s why having The Wolf Pack on your side will be to your benefit!


How Can a Lawyer Help?

Car accident injury cases can be tricky, especially if you’re trying to navigate your case while dealing with your injuries, doctor’s appointments, and other disruptions to your life. Trying to juggle everything can put you at a disadvantage in getting the compensation you deserve, but an experienced Oklahoma City car accident lawyer can help.

An attorney will seek compensation for your injuries, as well as possible compensation you didn’t even know you may be entitled to receive. An attorney will also gather evidence and build the strongest case possible and negotiate with the insurance company. If your case needs to go to court, an attorney will advocate for you and fight on your behalf for the settlement you deserve.

Get Your Free Case Review

Call The Wolf Pack at Colbert Cooper Hill Attorneys or fill out the online form to get your free case review. We’ll meet with you as soon as possible. If we take your case, you won’t owe us anything until after you’ve reached your settlement—and if we don’t win for you, you don’t pay.

Gather Evidence

Your attorney will gather evidence to support your car accident case, such as medical documentation, witness statements, and bills. We work with investigators and experts statewide to uncover facts that most crash victims don’t have access to and give you the best possible chance of success.

Insurance Claim Negotiations

Your attorney will be your fierce advocate and negotiate your compensation settlement on your behalf. A knowledgeable personal injury attorney will understand what to say (and not to say) to an insurance adjuster and make the strongest possible argument for a maximum recovery. Most car accident claims are settled in this stage.

File a Lawsuit

If the insurance company won’t agree to a fair settlement offer after working through the claims process, the next step is to file a car accident lawsuit. Settlement negotiations might continue, but our experienced personal injury lawyers don’t shy away from taking cases to trial when needed. We will take care of everything on your behalf and aggressively fight for your right to compensation.

Get Your Settlement

Once you receive a settlement offer, your attorney will go over your options with you. If you accept, you’ll get your check as soon as possible. Our attorneys may also negotiate with medical providers and other third parties to settle your debt for less and put more of your settlement back in your pocket.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Should I Do After an Accident?

If you’ve been in an auto accident, you should take the following steps:

  • Call first responders and seek medical treatment, even if you don’t feel hurt. It’s not always obvious right away that you may have suffered a serious (and expensive) injury, and you’ll want to get checked out as soon as possible.
  • Call the police and get a police report.
  • If you can, take photos of the crash scene, vehicle damage, and your injuries from as many angles as possible.
  • Keep records of everything related to your accident, including your medical records, receipts, and lost wages.
  • Contact our Oklahoma City car accident lawyers at Colbert Cooper Hill Attorneys so we can start building a case on your behalf!

How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?

Every state has a statute of limitations for filing car accident lawsuits. This means you have a specific window of time in which you need to file to be eligible to get compensation.

In the State of Oklahoma, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of the accident. However, it’s important to contact an attorney as soon as possible so you don’t miss your chance of getting the compensation you deserve! The longer you wait, the harder it becomes to gather the evidence needed to support your insurance claim.

Why Do I Need an Attorney?

You can be sure that the other party’s insurance company will try to escape liability or push you to accept a lowball offer. Their job is to pay you as little as possible for your personal injury claim.

Having an experienced attorney on your side can prevent an insurance adjuster from taking advantage of you. They’ll know what to say and what not to say during negotiations. They also know how to calculate fair compensation, what evidence to gather, and what experts to get involved to give you the best chance at a successful recovery. Our fierce negotiators have your best interests in mind and will stop at nothing to protect your rights.

Should I Talk to the Insurance Adjuster?

Usually within a few days of your accident, you’ll be contacted by an insurance adjuster representing the other side. Remember that you aren’t obligated to speak with them and it’s in your best interest to not sign anything they may give you! No matter how nice they may seem at first, they’re not your friend. Don’t answer any questions, and always direct them to your Oklahoma City car accident lawyers.

Will I Have to Go to Court?

Most car crash cases do not require injury victims to go to court. Usually, the process involves back-and-forth negotiations with the insurance company where both parties eventually agree upon a settlement amount.

However, if a fair settlement cannot be reached without getting the court involved, filing a personal injury lawsuit and going to court may become necessary. If this does happen, The Wolf Pack will fight tooth and nail to protect your rights.

Do note that not all lawsuits end in a jury trial. The lawsuit simply begins a more formal legal process of reaching an outcome. If the insurance company knows that you are represented by an experienced attorney willing to take your case to trial, they will have a strong incentive to settle before the case reaches that point.

Does Oklahoma Have Personal Injury Protection?

Personal injury protection (PIP) is not a requirement in Oklahoma and isn’t available as an add-on for your insurance. Instead of PIP, Oklahoma insurance companies offer an alternative, called medical payments coverage (or MedPay), to assist with medical expenses after a car accident. MedPay is like PIP insurance in that it handles your medical bills, but it covers less than PIP and doesn’t include options for home assistance or lost wages.

Is Oklahoma an At-Fault State?

Oklahoma is an at-fault state. That means that if you were injured in a car accident here and another driver was responsible for the accident, you will be able to pursue compensation for your losses from the at-fault driver (or any other liable party, such as a trucking company) and their insurance company.

What Are My Property Damage Rights?

In car accident injury cases, you may be able to seek compensation for the damage done to your vehicle. Whether your car has a few dents and scratches or it’s been totaled, property damage rights entitle you to have it repaired to the condition prior to the accident. If it can’t be repaired, you’re entitled to fair market value for your vehicle. Even if your car can be driven, it’s important to have it inspected by a mechanic and document all the damage.

How Do I Get My Car Fixed?

Most insurance companies use insurance adjusters for property damage claims. These adjusters are different from the adjusters used for personal injury claims.

Before you can have your car fixed, you will need to speak to the adjuster of the other driver’s insurance company. This person should have a copy of the accident report to analyze and determine the company’s liability. After that, they will have your car assessed for repair or replacement costs. If the insurance adjuster doesn’t admit fault, you will need to file your own claim. It’s best to have OKC car accident attorneys like The Wolf Pack for this process to ensure you seek fair compensation.

What If the Driver Leaves the Scene or Is Uninsured?

Unfortunately, many accidents that result in injuries or property damage involve uninsured, underinsured, or hit-and-run drivers. If your auto insurance policy includes Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist coverage (UM/UIM), you can file a claim under this coverage.

Say you suffer $50,000 in damages, but the at-fault driver is only carrying the minimum amount of $25,000 in liability insurance coverage per individual. If you have UM/UIM coverage, you can make an insurance claim with your own carrier to cover the extra $25,000. You can also make a UM/UIM claim if the other driver has no insurance, or you’re hurt in a hit-and-run.

Oklahoma insurance carriers must offer you the option of purchasing at least as much UM/UIM coverage as you carry in liability insurance. We strongly urge all drivers to purchase as much UM/UIM coverage as they can reasonably afford, as it usually only costs a few extra dollars per month in premiums and offers essential financial protection against an accident with an uninsured driver or underinsured driver.

How Do I Cover My Medical Expenses During My Case?

If your insurance policy doesn’t have provisions to cover medical expenses, such as MedPay, you will be responsible for your medical bills during your case. Your health insurance may cover your medical expenses. Your accident attorney can help you navigate this process.

If your case reaches a settlement, your attorney can help you work with your health insurance company to reimburse them the medical costs from your accident-related injury.

What If I’m Partly at Fault for My Accident?

Oklahoma is a comparative negligence state, meaning that the responsibility of each driver is evaluated and the fault is determined based on how much, and to what degree, each driver contributed to the accident.

If, for example, you are determined to be 30% at fault and your claim is successful, you will only be able to recover 70% of your claimed damages (i.e., the full total minus 30 percent). In Oklahoma, if you are found to be more than 50% at fault, you cannot recover anything.

These cases are decided on a case-by-case basis and can be complex. If you’re concerned about how comparative negligence might affect your case and possible settlement, let The Wolf Pack fight for you.
