The Importance 
of Determining the Cause 

One of our Oklahoma City firm's responsibilities in your case will be determining the cause of your accident. Often, the cause will directly point to the responsible party and who we should file a lawsuit against. 

For example, if your accident was caused by a drunk driver, we can pursue personal injury damages against an individual. But if your accident was caused by a poorly maintained road, we may have grounds for a premises liability lawsuit against a larger group. 

Therefore, the cause of your accident will directly influence how our personal injury attorneys pursue your case. 

There Are Two Ways to Recover Compensation... Consider Your Legal Options

Insurance Claim 

When you file an insurance claim, the other driver's insurance company will be responsible for compensating you for losses. Filing an insurance claim is typically a faster process because insurance companies may try to get you to quickly settle the claim, offering you the lowest possible amount. But a lawyer can help you negotiate a fair and full settlement. 

Lawsuit

If the other driver's insurance provider is acting unjustly, our car accident lawyers can file a lawsuit on your behalf and represent in court. If we are unable to negotiate a more favorable settlement with the insurance company outside of court, we may decide to take the case to trial to show a jury what you are owed and get you a higher award. 

What to Do After an Accident

An auto accident can be traumatic, or jarring at the very least. It is important to try to remain and follow these important steps:

Collect Documentation and Evidence

Keep all your reports and medical receipts following the accident. This is important documentation for proving your losses. Also, take photos of any else that sustained damage, such as personal property and your vehicle.

Contact Your Insurance

You must notify your insurance company to tell them that you were in an accident. However, you do not need to answer any and all questions asked, or elaborate too much on the incident. Keep the conversation brief to protect avoid saying anything that could be misconstrued down the line.

Don't Communicate With the Other Driver's Insurance

Sometimes after an accident, the insurance company representing the other driver will contact you with questions or even with a settlement offer. These calls are designed to shift responsibility onto you or resolve the matter for an unfair amount. To protect your rights you should avoid all communication with the responsible party's insurance.
