What are common causes of car accidents in Oklahoma?

There many different types of car accidents in Oklahoma. Some of the most common causes of auto accidents we handle include:

  • Speeding drivers - Many people in Oklahoma drive above the speed limit. When they do, they have less time to react to other drivers around them and may cause high-speed car accidents.
  • Drunk drivers - The hazards of drinking and driving have been well-known for decades. Even so, some drivers put everyone on the road at risk by drinking and driving. Hold drunk drivers accountable for your accident. Contact us.
  • Distracted drivers - Distracted driving has become one of the leading causes of car accidents in Oklahoma. There's no excuse for drivers who don't pay attention and cause a serious accident.
  • Texting drivers - Texting while driving is not specifically prohibited by Oklahoma statutes at this time. But that doesn't mean you can't take legal action against a texting driver for your car crash.
  • Tired drivers - Drivers who fall asleep at the wheel put everyone in danger. If a fatigued driver caused your car accident, contact us. We can help you take legal action.

Who investigates Oklahoma auto accidents?

Police officers are often the first people who investigate car accidents in Oklahoma. Then insurance company investigators often get involved in determining who caused the accident. Deciding who caused an accident can be very complicated. Most cases are rarely clear cut, even if one driver clearly caused the car accident. That's why it's important you have an experienced attorney on your side investigating your accident and protecting your rights. We don't work for the police department or insurance companies. We work exclusively for you.

What is negligence in terms of car accidents?

Negligence is the failure to use reasonable care, or the failure to use the same degree of care that a reasonably prudent person would use under the same circumstances. Evidence of negligence is the basis for liability in most personal injury cases, including car accidents. Oklahoma auto accident attorneys at Lawter & Associates, PLLC can best assess evidence of negligence in your case. Contact Lawter & Associates, PLLC in Oklahoma City or Tulsa.

What if the driver who caused my car accident does not have insurance?

Auto insurance is required by law in Oklahoma. Although the other party may not have liability insurance, other insurance may still be available. If you have purchased uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage, a recovery may be available for any injury you have received. In addition, potential causes of action against parties not initially known may be available. For example, you may have a case against an individual's employer if he or she was working at the time of the collision. Contact us and allow our attorneys to review your case and determine what compensation we can recover for you.

Should I contact my insurance company after my car accident?

Yes. However, keep your comments to a minimum. Simply state you were in a car accident and do not answer any other questions. Dealing with insurance companies after a car accident can be very complicated. That's because most insurance companies only care about one thing: paying injury victims as little as possible. Protect your rights. Contact us.

Should I answer questions if another insurance company contacts me after my accident?

No. Do not answer any questions insurance companies ask you after your accident. Anything you say could be used against you by an insurance company. Insurance companies are often focused on one thing - paying injury victims as little as possible. That's why it's important to be cautious about what you say to insurance companies after your accident. We strongly advise accident victims to simply tell insurance companies you have hired a lawyer and direct them to contact your attorney.

Should I accept a financial offer from an insurance company soon after my accident?

No. Insurance companies often make low-ball offers to accident victims soon after an accident. Insurance companies do this because they know accident victims want to resolve their accident claim as soon as possible. The problem is accident victims often don't know the true cost of their accident for some time. Don't be misled. Protect your rights. Contact us right now. We can help.

Can I negotiate for more money after my Oklahoma car accident?

Yes. Many car accident victims don't realize they have the right to ask for more money after an accident. If you feel an insurance company has not made a reasonable offer to you after your car accident, contact Lawter & Associates, PLLC. Insurance companies don't intimidate us. We know how to negotiate with them, and we have the case results to prove it.
