Compared to smaller passenger vehicles, tractor-trailers have an extreme amount of force and can cause severe damage when involved in an accident. To help prevent collisions, the trucking industry must follow safety standards above and beyond regular traffic laws. Unfortunately, the temptation to rush deliveries and turn quick profits means these rules sometimes get broken — and when truck accidents happen as a result of unsafe driving, innocent people become victims.

If you’ve been injured in a truck accident, the Wolf Pack at Colbert Cooper Hill Attorneys can help. Our Oklahoma City truck accident lawyers are dedicated to protecting the rights of individuals in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Ardmore, and cities across Oklahoma who have been hurt in accidents with large trucks.

Do I Have a Case?

Commercial truck accidents can be complex, with several different parties at fault. If you were injured because of carelessness exhibited by the truck driver, trucking company, or other parties involved with the truck’s safety, you may be entitled to compensation. Let’s look at some of the factors The Wolf Pack™ will review with you to determine if you have a case that will result in a settlement worth pursuing.

  • Jackknife accidents: These accidents occur when a truck brakes suddenly and the trailer swings at an angle, often overturning the truck.
  • Head-on and rear-end collisions: These accidents happen with all vehicles, but the size of the truck can make them more dangerous for small vehicles.
  • Blind-spot accidents: Truck blind spots are more significant than in passenger cars and may prevent the driver from seeing other cars nearby.
  • Underride accidents: These accidents happen when a truck stops suddenly and a car gets lodged under the trailer.

The time limit to bring a lawsuit to court or file criminal charges is known as the statute of limitations. In Oklahoma truck accidents, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. However, there are exceptions to this law depending on the unique circumstances of your case. It’s important to work with an experienced Oklahoma City truck accident lawyer to ensure you don’t miss any important deadlines and jeopardize your right to compensation.

Negligence is a critical factor in a truck accident injury case. In law, negligence is a failure to use appropriate or reasonable care in a situation. For a truck driver or associated parties, that may mean driving while fatigued, failing to maintain the truck’s components, or failing to follow the rules of the road. If you believe the accident you were injured in was not your fault, you likely have a truck accident case worth hiring an attorney for and pursuing.

What Compensation Am I Entitled To?

If you’ve been injured in a truck accident, you can pursue compensation for your accident-related expenses, such as:

  • Medical expenses, including hospitalizations, therapy, medications, and adaptive equipment.
  • Loss of wages, if your injury forced you to miss work or you can no longer work in the same job.
  • Pain and suffering or emotional distress.

Oklahoma is a comparative negligence state, meaning if you’re found to be partly responsible for the accident, your percentage of fault may reduce your compensation. To know the true value of your case and what you may be entitled to, let The Wolf Pack™ evaluate your losses in a free case review.

Who Is Responsible for My Truck Accident?

When you’re involved in a truck accident, determining who may be held liable can be complex. Unlike most passenger vehicle claims, truck accident claims can involve multiple parties who may share fault, including the:

  • Truck driver
  • Trucking company
  • Insurance provider of the trucking company or driver
  • Company that leased the truck or trailer
  • Individuals who shipped or loaded the truck’s cargo
  • Manufacturers of defective truck parts or safety equipment

Trucking companies and their insurance providers have powerful legal teams defending them against injury claims. It’s our job to level the playing field and fight for you. Our Oklahoma City truck accident lawyers will do whatever it takes to get you the best results possible, even if it means taking the companies responsible for your accident to court.

Frequently Asked Questions

Follow these steps after a truck accident to help protect your health and strengthen your claim:

  • Get medical attention.

    See a doctor as soon as you can after your accident. Your doctor can begin to treat your injuries and records from the visit can serve as important evidence linking your injuries to your accident.

  • Collect evidence.

    If you’re able, get the names of witnesses from the scene and take photographs of the vehicles involved, the accident location, and any injuries sustained by you or your passengers.

  • Keep records.

    Save copies of any receipts related to your accident, including payments to health care providers, auto body shops, and even transportation costs related to your treatment. These records can be factored into your claim during settlement negotiations.

  • Call The Wolf Pack.

    Colbert Cooper Hill Attorneys has the experience and resources to gather evidence pertaining to your accident, consult the necessary experts, file a strong claim on your behalf, and fight to hold the trucking company accountable for your injuries. You can contact us 24/7 at 405-259-4366 or complete our free online form to schedule a consultation.

You should get a lawyer as soon as you get the medical attention you need for your injuries. Your lawyer will need time to gather evidence and determine the value of your claim before negotiating with the insurance company. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to collect evidence and prove who was responsible for your accident.

Don’t speak to insurance adjusters — even if they’re from your insurer — without discussing your claim with an attorney first. Insurance companies are corporations that increase their profits by offering injury victims lowball settlement offers. Anything you say to an insurance adjuster may be used to try to reduce the value of your claim, and any documents you sign may take away your rights to file a claim.

Serious internal injuries can take days or weeks to develop noticeable symptoms. A doctor can examine your condition and provide you with the appropriate treatment to help make sure any injuries you’ve suffered don’t get worse.

 

The Oklahoma statute of limitations, or the deadline to file a lawsuit, requires you to file a truck accident claim within a specific period of time after your accident. How long you have to file your claim depends on a number of factors, so contact us as soon as possible to ensure you don’t miss the deadline to file your claim.

It takes time to build a strong truck accident claim, so don’t wait to get the legal representation you need. Contact the Oklahoma City truck accident lawyers at Colbert Cooper Hill Attorneys today.

Every accident case is unique, so we can’t estimate the settlement your case may reach without our team discussing your case with you. In most cases, however, you may be eligible for compensation to cover most financial losses related to your accident.

You may be able to receive compensation for your medical bills, doctor visits, travel to appointments, procedures, and medication. You may also be eligible to be compensated for your lost wages, lost potential future earnings, emotional damages, and even loss of relationships and comfort. Contact us today for a free case review and to find out how much your specific case may be worth. Let The Wolf Pack™ fight for the maximum compensation for you!

Truck accident settlements can be tricky because a lot of different parties may hold some responsibility for the accident. The driver may be responsible, as is expected. But, the trucking company, the manufacturers of any vehicle parts that might have failed, or the maintenance crew may also hold some responsibility. The team that loads cargo may even be responsible if the accident was caused by improperly balanced loads shifting.

With all these potential parties involved, it can be tricky to know who will be found responsible. This is one way The Wolf Pack™ lawyers can step in to help you fight for the maximum compensation you deserve. Your Oklahoma City truck accident lawyer will help you determine who should be held responsible and how that impacts the compensation you may receive.

Negligence is a legal term that means proving someone else’s carelessness caused your accident. In order to receive a settlement, your lawyer will need to show another party acted unreasonably recklessly or carelessly, it led to the accident, and the accident caused your injury.

Many different parties may have played a role in the accident, making truck accidents particularly tricky. Each party will likely have its own insurance company and attorneys, and each will try to pass the blame to another. That’s why you need The Wolf Pack™ to fight for you, cut through the fog, and seek the full compensation you deserve.

Legally, there is nothing stopping you from representing yourself in a case. It may, however, leave you with less compensation than you need. Having a qualified Oklahoma City truck accident lawyer in your corner can make all the difference when seeking the compensation to which you are entitled under the law. The Wolf Pack™ is known for fighting for our clients so they can focus on recovery.

Oklahoma City truck accident lawyers should have no upfront fees and should not ask for any money unless they win your case. The Wolf Pack™ works on a contingency basis, meaning if we don’t win for you, you won’t owe us a dime at all. Starting with your free case review, our services are affordable. You deserve your best chance at compensation, and The Wolf Pack™ team is ready to fight for your rights, today!

Most truck accident cases don’t go to court. The truth is, insurance companies often avoid going to court because it’s very expensive and tends to be all-or-nothing, which would leave them at a loss. Most truck accident cases are resolved through a process of negotiation and ends in an agreed upon, fair settlement. If, however, we do have to go to court, you can bet that The Wolf Pack™ will represent you and fight aggressively on your behalf every step of the way.
