Auto Accident

auto accidentParties injured in an auto accident, as well as their families, can be deeply affected by the injury. Many accident victims will suffer debilitating injuries that affect their ability to work and restrict their everyday activities. Others  may suffer even more substantial injuries, including amputation, paralysis, brain injuries, back surgeries and also the death of a loved one.

The law provides that a person injured in an automobile accident has the right to recover his or her damages from the responsible party. These damages include, but may not be limited to, medical expenses, past and future lost wages, pain and suffering, disfigurement and permanent injuries. If your spouse or child is killed in an accident, you may sue for what the law terms as "wrongful death. " Your damages will include the loss of love and affection, grief and economic losses you have suffered as a result of your loved ones death.

Be aware the insurance company for the person who caused your injury will try to limit the recovery to the lowest possible amount. The insurance company will want to settle this claim as quickly and cheaply as possible. However, when a person is injured in an auto accident, it often takes many months to receive treatment and assess the extent of your injuries. Your injuries may even leave you permanently disabled even after corrective surgery. The value of your claim can only be truly assessed after you have received all of your treatment and have been released from your doctor. There is no rush to settle your claim. Oklahoma law provides a two (2) year period of time in which to file your lawsuit unless you are suing a governmental entity. In those cases the time is lessened considerably, normally one (1) year. You must seek advice from an attorney to determine what time period applies to your case.

It is important to have a firm such as Woodson & Goodwin with years of experience in dealing with insurance companies working on your behalf.
