Oklahoma Car Accident Laws

In Oklahoma, you need to be aware of specific laws that could impact your car accident claim:

  • Statute of Limitations. The statute of limitations for filing a car accident lawsuit in Oklahoma is two years from the date of the accident. The statute of limitations can be different depending on the circumstances, such as when claims are brought against public entities. The best way to preserve your right to compensation is to bring your case to a proven lawyer as soon as possible.
  • Comparative Negligence. Oklahoma follows a "modified comparative negligence" system, meaning if you are found to be 51% or more at fault, you cannot recover damages. At Aaron Sachs & Associates, P.C., we work diligently to investigate accidents, gather evidence, and lay the groundwork to prove that defendants were at greater fault and preserve our clients’ ability to recover damages. 
  • Insurance Requirements. Oklahoma mandates that all drivers carry minimum amounts of liability insurance to cover potential damages, but as many as 1 in 7 drivers on Oklahoma roads are uninsured. And many more lack sufficient coverage to fully compensate victims for their losses. If you have UM/UIM coverage as part of your auto insurance policy (which is a wise decision), you can pursue a claim with your own insurance carrier if you’re hurt by someone with no or insufficient insurance. 

Determining Liability in an Oklahoma Car Accident Case

Liability in a car accident refers to who is legally responsible for the resulting damages. The process of determining liability involves assessing negligence. A driver is considered negligent if they failed to take reasonable care on the road, and this negligence caused the accident. 

Liability can be complex, with multiple parties potentially being at fault, including drivers, companies that own and operate commercial vehicles, local governments or property owners responsible for poor road conditions, and vehicle manufacturers for defective parts. 

As such, determining liability often requires attorneys to cast a wide net and identify all potentially liable parties, and gather important evidence. This may include police reports, witness statements, traffic surveillance, and independent assessments of the crash scene. At Aaron Sachs & Associates, P.C., we have the resources and professional connections to handle these fact-gathering investigations with the care and attention they demand. 

Common Causes of Car Accidents

Identifying the underlying cause of your car accident is a crucial part of the legal process and assists in building a strong case if you seek legal action. Some of the more common causes of car accidents we see when handling claims from Oklahomans include:

  • Distracted driving (e.g., cellphone use or multitasking)
  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Reckless driving
  • Failure to obey traffic signals
  • Fatigue

Common Injuries From Car Accidents

Injuries from car accidents can range from minor scrapes to serious, life-threatening conditions. Some common injuries include:

  • Whiplash and other soft tissue injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Lacerations
  • Internal injuries
  • Emotional trauma 

Auto accident injuries can have long-term consequences for your physical, financial, and emotional health, making it imperative to seek immediate medical attention and consider future implications in any legal claim you choose to pursue.

What to Do After a Car Accident

If you’re involved in a car accident, the following steps can protect your health and legal interests:

  1. Ensure safety by moving to the side of the road and setting up flares or hazard signs.
  2. Contact emergency services and file a police report.
  3. Exchange information with the other driver(s) involved but avoid discussing fault.
  4. Document the scene and collect evidence (i.e., take photos, record your account of the incident).
  5. Seek medical attention immediately, follow up with your doctor, and listen to their recommendations regarding your treatment.
  6. Consult with a car accident attorney for legal advice. An attorney can help you handle all communications with an at-fault party’s insurance carrier and work to position you for the compensation you deserve. 

Process for Filing a Car Accident Claim

When you decide to file a claim, understanding the process is crucial:

  1. Notification: Inform your own insurer about the accident promptly.
  2. Documentation: Gather all evidence, documents, medical reports, and expenses related to the accident, as well as contact and insurance information of the involved parties.
  3. Construct a Claim. With the help of an attorney, you can construct a compelling claim that effectively proves liability and lists in detail the scope of your damages. 
  4. Resolution: An attorney can work on your behalf to negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company. If insurers dispute liability or damages or fail to offer a fair settlement, cases may need to proceed to trial, where a judge will decide the matter based on evidence and testimony presented by your lawyer.  

Each step in the car accident claim process requires careful attention to detail and ample preparation. At Aaron Sachs & Associates, P.C., we take the time to help clients understand how the process will work for them, and how we can protect their rights and interests every step of the way.

Compensation Available for Car Accident Claims

Compensation after a car accident can cover various damages:

  • Medical expenses: Covers bills for emergency services, hospitalization, surgeries, medications, and rehabilitation.
  • Lost wages: Compensates for the income lost due to the inability to work.
  • Property damage: Pays for repairs or replacement of your vehicle.
  • Pain and suffering: Addresses the non-economic impact of the accident on your life.
  • Punitive damages: In rare cases, awarded to punish the at-fault party for egregious negligence.

The type and amount of compensation depend on the specifics of your case and the extent of harm suffered. We can discuss the potential value of your case after personally discussing the facts involved during a consultation.
