Proving Liability in Car Accident Claims in Tulsa
Oklahoma is a comparative negligence insurance state that allows car accident victims to claim compensation for their property damage and personal injury expenses as well as for their pain and suffering. Even if you were partly at fault for the accident, you may still recover a portion of your damages minus your percentage of fault. For example, if your damages amount to $100,000 but you’re found to be 20% at fault because you exceeded the speed limit but another driver failed to stop at a red light, you could still recover $80,000. Unfortunately, insurance companies often try to protect their profits by falsely assigning accident victims in Oklahoma more fault than they’re due. A skilled attorney knows how to counteract these tactics by investigating the accident to document the following clear points of liability:
- The at-fault party owed a duty of care to you and others on the road to take reasonable measures to prevent injuries
- They breached this duty through an act of negligence or recklessness
- Their negligent breach of duty caused your injury
- You’ve suffered significant economic and non-economic damages due to the injury
Negligent drivers are the most common liable parties in Tulsa car accidents, but sometimes the investigation proves other entities liable, like the manufacturer of a defective auto part or a lax road maintenance agency. Once your Tulsa car accident attorney from Dan Davis Law documents evidence of liability, they’ll craft the most compelling case for compensation for your damages.
Common Damages Claimed in Tulsa Car Accidents
Accidents quickly become expensive. With medical bills coming in at the same time you’re dealing with painful medical procedures and lengthy recovery time, you may be unable to return to work. The emotional distress this causes can negatively impact healing. A successful car accident claim can make all the difference by providing the following:
- Property damage compensation
- Reimbursement for medical expenses and compensation for future expenses related to the injury
- Reimbursement for lost income
- Compensation for diminished earning capacity if the accident left you disabled
- Compensation for non-economic damages like pain and suffering, loss of pleasure in life due to disability, PTSD, or disfigurement
Intangible damages like pain and suffering may be more difficult to assign a monetary sum compared to medical expenses, but they are often the most devastating damages from a car accident. Letting an experienced Tulsa car accident attorney from Dan Davis Law advocate passionately for you in insurance company negotiations or in court can maximize the compensation you receive.
