Oklahoma safety standards
It’s hard to know what to do after a bad accident. Especially in incidents where people trip, slip, or fall, victims may be reluctant to come forward to make a claim. They often blame themselves for getting hurt even though the property owner is the one that put them in a risky position.
Whether you’re at a park, retail, office, home, apartment, recreation center, museum, or any other location, the property owner owes you a duty of safety, or, at the very least, the responsibility to warn you of the dangers. In some situations, property owners even owe trespassers a certain standard of safety on-premises.
If you were hurt in an accident on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and other damages. People who are 50 percent or less at-fault in an accident can usually file an injury claim.
Don’t leave money on the table. Failing to get all the money you need to make a full recovery, could lead to you and your family paying for expensive medical treatments out of pocket. Medical debt is real and crippling problem in the U.S. About 40 percent of American adults of working age are in medical debt or struggling to pay health care bills. This doesn’t have to be you, too.

- Should I contact the police if I'm hurt in an accident?
- Who investigates accidents in Oklahoma?
- What if I disagree with the doctor's diagnosis?
- Should I answer questions if an insurance company for the at-fault party contacts me after my accident?
- Who will compensate me for my accident?
- Should I accept a financial offer for my accident?
- Can I negotiate for more money?
- Can I file a personal injury lawsuit in Oklahoma?
- Why should I hire your firm to handle my personal injury claim?
In many cases, yes. Having a police officer respond to your accident will create an official record of your accident, something that could prove to be critical for obtaining compensation for your personal injury claim.
In most cases, the police will investigate your personal injury accident. Insurance companies representing the person or company that caused your injury also often get involved quickly in your investigation, along with their attorneys. That's why it's important to have a lawyer working for you, representing your interests.
If you disagree with the diagnosis or treatment of the treating physician, you should seek a second or even third opinion. A doctor's diagnosis will play a major role in your personal injury claim. An insurance company may even deny your claim based on the doctor's opinion. Your employer may insist you need to return to work, even though you don't feel physically able to do so.
Should I answer questions if an insurance company for the at-fault party contacts me after my accident?
No. If an insurance adjuster for the at-fault party contacts you, do not answer his questions. The adjuster may sound friendly, but he is not working for you. His job is to minimize the payments the insurance company makes to you as a victim. If you've hired an attorney, ask the adjuster to speak to your counsel.
In most cases, insurance companies for the at-fault parties compensate victims and their families. Financial compensation for personal injury victims may come from a variety of sources, including companies that made defective products that resulted in an accident. A personal injury attorney can investigate and help you find all possible sources of compensation.
We urge you to speak with an attorney about any offer you may receive for your losses. In most cases, insurance companies and other corporations often make financial offers that are far less than injury victims need or deserve. Don't let large corporations dictate what happens to you. Contact a personal injury law firm, one that will do everything they can to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve for your losses.
Yes. Insurance companies don't want people to know that they can ask for more money than the initial offer for their personal injury claim. Injury victims can - and should - negotiate for more money. The initial offer is often less than the amount the insurer is willing to pay. An experienced attorney will be skilled at negotiating with insurance companies to get the results their clients are looking for.
Yes. While the majority of cases are settled, sometimes the best way to be fairly compensated is to file a lawsuit. Knowing if this is the right route to take can be a challenge. That's why it's important to contact a personal injury lawyer who can meet with you and discuss all the legal options available to you.
There are so many reasons why you should hire an Oklahoma personal injury lawyer. Perhaps the most important reason - to make sure your case receives the attention it deserves. Our attorneys don't treat clients like numbers. We personally handle every case.
