What to Do if You Were Injured
If someone else caused your injury, you should seek medical care at an urgent care facility or hospital immediately. Even if your injury is minor, you should still undergo an evaluation to determine if you will need any future treatment. Afterward, it’s essential to seek the advice of one of the Tulsa personal injury attorneys from Abel Law Firm. Many people will try to handle their case on their own. However, there are many layers to an injury case that someone without experience might not know how to handle.
Insurance companies will try to pay out the smallest settlement possible. If you don’t have legal representation, they might take advantage of that and provide you with a lowball offer, so they close out your claim as quickly as possible. If you’re unsure of the maximum benefits you’re entitled to; you might be tempted to accept any offer they give you. When you have an experienced attorney by your side, they will fight hard to seek the justice you deserve and get the financial compensation you need.
Helping You Get Justice
Our first step will be to review the details of the incident you were involved in to determine if we can find fault. Oklahoma is an at-fault state, which means the individual found at fault will be held responsible for the victim’s injury. If you believe the other person was negligent, you can file a personal injury claim with their insurance carrier. We know how to navigate the insurance claims process to recover the maximum compensation available. We will file a claim and launch a thorough investigation into your accident. We’ll begin by collecting the evidence we believe will be necessary to prove the other party should be held liable. We’ll leave no stone unturned when building a strong case on your behalf. Some crucial evidence could include:
- Police/incident reports
- Witness statements
- The at-fault party’s insurance policy
- Video surveillance
- Your medical records
While we’re looking into your accident, you should continue to treat your injuries with a physician. Insurance adjusters will look for any gaps in treatment or missed appointments to justify denying your claim. If your doctor refers you to a specialist, requests diagnostic testing, or prescribes you medication, you should follow their orders. Your regular office appointments will show the other person’s reckless actions caused your injury.
When our investigation is complete, we will send a demand letter to the insurance carrier with all the details and documents proving fault. The insurance adjuster will review the claim and submit a settlement offer. We will negotiate with them to reach an agreement you believe is fair. If we’re unable to reach a favorable settlement, or the insurance adjuster denies your claim, we will file a lawsuit. A lawsuit can be filed against the insurance carrier and the at-fault individual who caused your injury. Your Tulsa personal injury attorney is skilled in litigation and will be fully prepared to take your case to court.
What Compensation am I Owed?
In any personal injury case, you can seek compensation for compensatory damages and punitive damages. Compensatory damages are compensation for any losses the injured party suffered due to the accident or injury. Punitive damages are used to punish the individual or entity that was responsible for causing the injury. Depending on the coverages in the liable party’s insurance policy, you can receive up to the maximum amount of liability coverage available.
The amount of money your Tulsa personal injury attorney can demand from the insurance carrier will depend on the limit of liability in their policy. Liability limits can cover the victim’s compensatory damages. These damages are any expenses you incurred as a direct result of the incident that caused your injury. The damages you can seek compensation for include:
- Medical Expenses – Bills for any treatment deemed medically necessary, including ambulance services, ER visits, hospital stays, surgery, physical therapy, assistive medical devices, home health care, and prescription medication.
- Lost Wages – Any salary, commission, promotion, or bonuses you were unable to earn because of your accident. If your injuries are permanent, you can seek compensation for any future wages you won’t be able to make.
- Pain and Suffering – Significant physical pain and suffering you endured that affected your ability to enjoy your daily life.
- Loss of Consortium – An immediate family can seek compensation for damages if the individual’s injuries negatively impacted the relationship.
- Wrongful Death – If the victim of a personal injury case dies as a direct result of the negligent party’s actions, their loved ones can seek compensation for expenses, such as funeral and burial costs.
