Oklahoma Personal Injury Lawyers

Every year, a shocking number of people in Oklahoma are injured in preventable accidents. People who fail to behave responsibly do terrible harm to unsuspecting victims. Distracted drivers cause massive traffic collisions. Negligent pet owners fail to prevent their dogs from biting innocent people. Careless property managers allow dangerous conditions on their premises. Suffering an injury can already be traumatic, painful, and costly. It can feel even worse knowing that your injury never should have happened in the first place.

Thankfully, individuals injured by someone else’s negligence do have legal recourse. At Abel Law Firm, our dedicated personal injury lawyers fight to secure financial compensation for our clients. If you have been injured in an accident, you might find yourself in serious financial distress. You may be forced to face high medical bills, lost work wages, emotional suffering, physical pain, and even lifestyle changes.

With the help of a personal injury lawyer, you can recover the costs of your injury from the responsible party. The law specifies that we all have a serious duty to not put those around us in unnecessary danger. For example, drivers are expected to pay attention to the road and store owners should be sure the conditions in their building are not dangerous. Those who fail in this duty can be legally required to pay damages to anyone they have injured.

The Basics of Personal Injury Law

Personal injury law differs greatly from criminal law. While criminal law involves cases brought by the government against an allegedly guilty party, personal injury cases are brought by private citizens or groups. These types of law also differ in their primary motivation. Criminal law strives to punish and rehabilitate through methods such as jail time and fine. Personal injury law wants victims of preventable accidents to be able to recover the costs of those accidents from the party responsible.

For example, a personal injury case might arise after a car crash. Imagine that you suffered a concussion and a broken leg after you were rear-ended at a stop light. Not only do you have to pay for your hospital bills, but you are forced to take some time off work to heal. A skilled Oklahoma personal injury attorney with the Abel Law Firm could help you investigate the crash, determine the legally liable party, and pursue damages from them to help you pay for all of these costs of your injury.

Injuries in Oklahoma

An injury occurs when some external force harms you. For example, a broken ankle resulting from a dog attack would qualify as an injury but the common cold would not. It’s important to remember that injuries are not necessarily visible or readily apparent. You could be injured when a hospital nurse gives you the incorrect dosage of your medication, making your illness worse or adding painful new symptoms.

Many Oklahomans each year suffer from injuries. Quite a few of these injuries are serious, requiring immediate medical attention and costly treatments. Automotive accidents are a leading cause of death and injury in Oklahoma. According to the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office:

  • 694 crashes that led to an injury involved a driver distracted by an electronic device in 2015
  • 2,229 people were seriously injured in alcohol-related auto accidents in 2015
  • 854 motorcyclists were seriously injured in crashes in 2015
  • Car crashes are the cause of more than 650 Oklahoman deaths and more than 35,000 injuries each year

Auto accidents can cause significant bodily damage. Victims endure lacerations, broken limbs, spinal cord injuries, brain damage, intense bruising, and a variety of other medical problems. The statistics related to auto accidents become all the more tragic when we think about how many of these crashes could have been avoided. When someone’s recklessness causes an auto accident, they can be legally required to pay for the costs of any resulting injuries.

Car crashes aren’t the only danger faced by Oklahomans. Many people get hurt at home and on the job. Each year, about 14 victims suffer a fatal fall while at work. Unintentional falls are the third leading cause of deaths in the workplace. Working at a factories, farms, or construction sites can involve operating heavy machinery and using dangerous tools. Employers have a serious responsibility to make the workplace as safe as possible, so every employee must be properly trained and equipped with safety gear before using these tools.

How much is my case worth?

Depending on the severity of your injuries, you might be able to recover substantial financial compensation. Personal injury law exists so that victims do not have to pay for the costs of an injury that someone else’s negligence caused. You could recover the money you spent on a wide variety of injury-related expenses. For example, the courts might order the responsible party to pay you monetary recompense for: past and future hospital visits, the services of medical specialists, medication, physical therapy, counseling, lost work wages, vacation or sick days used for recovery, physical pain, emotional suffering, lifestyle changes, the lost capacity for work, and other costs.
