Bill May Help Oklahoma Auto Accident Victims

by Colbert Cooper Hill Attorneys

Nothing is more frustrating than having a claim rejected from an insurance company after an Oklahoma City auto accident where you weren’t at fault.

But a new bill could help Oklahoma City auto accident victims recover damages if they weren’t at fault in the accident.

“Pain and suffering” compensation may be collected if Senate Bill 272 is passed by the House of Representatives and signed by Gov. Mary Fallin.

According to The Tulsa World, the bill prohibits people in vehicles not covered by liability insurance from obtaining noneconomic damages if they are injured in an Oklahoma City auto accident in which an insured party is at fault.

However, those who oppose the bill say it would protect parties who are at fault in Oklahoma City auto accidents and wouldn’t be fair.

What do you think about the “Pain and suffering” compensation bill? Do you think it would do more harm than good?
