If you were hurt or injured in a car accident caused by another driver’s negligence, then you are probably stressed trying to deal with significant medical expenses and costly property damage. You may also be confused about your options and feel pressured into accepting an insurance company settlement.
Ryan Bisher Ryan & Simons understand those car accidents can leave victims hurt and confused about their options for fair compensation. The lawyers at Ryan Bisher Ryan & Simons are here to guide you through this difficult time and fight for the financial security you require.
Unfortunately, some drivers decide not to follow the state’s insurance rule. According to the Insurance Information Institute, 26 percent of Oklahoma drivers are driving without insurance, the highest percentage rate in the United States.
In Oklahoma, an individual cannot recover damages if he or she is more than 50 percent at fault for the accident as Oklahoma follows a modified comparative negligence standard.
When it comes down to the unique circumstances of your accident and whether the at-fault driver has adequate insurance will affect your case, but accident injury victims are generally entitled to pursue compensation for:
- Medical treatment
- Lost earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
If a family member was killed in a car accident caused by a negligent driver, our attorneys might be able to help you seek damages through a wrongful death claim.
Also, any injured victims should undergo a medical evaluation, even if there are no immediate signs of injury, as many symptoms do not arise for days after the accident.
A physician may detect specific severe injuries, including brain injuries before symptoms are evident to the victim or the victim’s family. Moreover, this medical documentation will be beneficial to your case if you decide to file a personal injury claim.
It’s a good idea to talk with an Oklahoma City car accident lawyer at Ryan Bisher Ryan & Simons before accepting an insurance settlement as many insurance companies offer very little even to cover medical expenses.
The law firm recommends that you document as much as you can about the accident such as contact information from any witnesses, photographs of the accident scene, and pictures of your injuries.
Time is significant after an accident occurs, even though injury victims can seek compensation for damages for up to two years, you can lose evidence if you do not contact an attorney and put forward your claim straight away.
