If you have any specific questions regarding your claim, you’re welcome to reach out to us for a consultation. We can go over any of your questions or concerns in more detail.
How soon do I need to file my claim?
The statute of limitations in the state of Oklahoma for personal injury cases is two years. This means you’ll need to file your claim within two years of when your accident occurred, or else the Oklahoma court system won’t hear your case and you won’t receive compensation for any of the damages you’ve suffered.
Will I have to go to court for my lawsuit in Oklahoma?
You won’t have to go to court for your lawsuit unless the liable party and their insurance company don’t accept the settlement offer you serve them with; however, it’s likely that they won’t be willing to pay the initial offer. In the event that you have to go to court, your lawyer will support you through the legal process and negotiate on your behalf to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
How long will it take to reach a settlement?
The length of the settlement process can vary based on a variety of different factors, such as how many parties are liable for your accident, how fast the defending insurance company accepts your demand letter, how willing the liable party is to compensate you, and more. Patience is the key in receiving the ultimate settlement you deserve, and your attorney can help you every step of the way.
