Seeking Full Compensation After A Serious Oklahoma City Car Accident

Car accidents happen every day, and roughly 40,000 Americans lose their lives annually. There are numerous accidents across Oklahoma City leading to both serious injuries and fatalities. Many of the people who are victimized in these car accidents did nothing wrong but were simply involved in the crash due to another driver’s negligent mistake.

If this has happened to you, contact us at Talley, Turner, Stice & Bertman. Our firm is focused on efficiency and dedicated to excellent communication with every one of our Oklahoma clients. We can answer the questions you may have about your case and help you explore your legal options. Our attorneys have decades of combined experience, and we have a track record of successful cases.

What Are The First Steps To Take?

The moments after an accident are overwhelming, but they are also some of the most crucial. After you take a breath, evaluate your physical health and call the police, there are a few important steps to take. Making the right moves will help you build a solid case for compensation.

Documenting the evidence is a good first step to take. Talk to witnesses, take photos and videos, and give a police statement. You may also want to check if there is surveillance footage from cameras near the scene of the accident. All of these types of evidence can be crucial in your case. It’s also important to keep detailed records of all medical treatment you receive, as well as communication with your insurance company.

The next critical step to take is to contact an experienced attorney who will advocate for you and manage all the parts of your personal injury case. It’s also important to act quickly in these situations. Time can corrode evidence and memories and sometimes impact your settlement. In Oklahoma, there is a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury cases. You will have exactly two years from the date of your accident to file a claim.

What Compensation Do You Deserve?

One thing we focus on is helping our Oklahoma City clients seek full compensation for all of their losses. Every case is different, but there are a variety of damages you can recover for a personal injury. These fall into three different categories:

  • Economic damages: This is monetary compensation that can cover a variety of expenses related to your accident. These damages can pay for medical bills, cover any lost wages you may suffer, and provide compensation for property damage and the cost of repairing your vehicle.
  • Non-economic damages: These damages cover less concrete losses associated with your accident. They help compensate for losses not covered in economic damages like those related to pain, suffering, emotional and mental anguish, disabilities and general loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Punitive damages: These damages are not a form of compensation, but rather intended to punish the party responsible for the accident. Punitive damages are not as common as economic and non-economic but can be awarded if the defendant did something especially malicious, egregious or dangerous.

Our legal professionals can help you get a better idea of what damages and compensation you might be entitled to after a car accident. Our car accident attorneys pride themselves on their efficiency, communication and dedication to our clients. We will do everything we can to make sure you are fully compensated for your accident, and we have the experience and skill to back it up.
