Q: What should I do if I am in an auto accident?
A: Regardless of how minor you think the accident is, always contact the police immediately so a report is made at the scene. Receive immediate medical treatment for any injuries, keeping in mind that the shock of a car collision may hide pain until hours or even days later. Write down names, addresses and phone numbers of all individuals involved in the car accident and any witnesses in case you need them later. Also, make sure the police officer gives you a copy of the driver exchange information form. Call your auto insurance agent and your insurance company immediately for further instructions. If you do not report the car accident, the insurance company may deny payment of any claims you subsequently file. Do not speak to the at-fault driver’s insurance company about your personal injury and do not consent to a recorded statement.

Q: What if the other party does not have car insurance? Am I still entitled to compensation?
A: 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 individuals employer if he or she was working at the time of the collision. Your Lawter & Associates, PLLC, Oklahoma City or Tulsa car injury lawer will review your case and determine what recovery can be made.
Q: Will my car insurance premiums rise if I make a claim?
A: No. If you are not at fault, Oklahoma law prohibits your insurance company from assigning driver record points, raising rates, canceling your coverage, or refusing to issue or renew your auto insurance policy.
Q: Should I accept a check from the insurance company immediately after my accident?
A: No. You may be misled into signing away your rights to additional money for damages. Always contact experienced Oklahoma auto accident lawyerss who know the law and will protect your rights.
Q: What if the adjuster for the other driver keeps calling my home?
A: Do not talk to an adjuster until you have spoken to an Tulsa or Oklahoma City car accident lawyer. Keep in mind the adjuster works for the other driver’s insurance company, and his/her job is to avoid paying you money.
