Whether referred to as automobile, motorcycle or truck accident, or a collision, crash, or wreck, motor vehicle mishaps are an unfortunate fact of life. These costly and traumatic experiences make up the majority of Personal Injury claims in the United States. Auto Accidents can be caused by any number of reasons including:
Auto Accidents can vary in severity from a simple fender bender to an unforgivable deadly crash. A more serious Accident will be investigated by law enforcement in order to determine the cause. Automobile Accidents can result in an array of injuries from whiplash to hearing loss, broken bones to burns. If you were a passenger, not the driver, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, loss of income, disability, as well as pain and suffering.
Most Accidents are settled outside of the legal system with the insurance company of the driver's involved. Of course, insurance companies are businesses and one of their concerns is in limiting the amount of money that they pay out. When an insurance company presents a settlement offer, it is in the victim's best interests to discuss it with a Lawyer before signing any documents. Douglas J. Smith is familiar with the many tactics that insurance companies use to get you to settle quickly and for less compensation than you deserve.
Due to deadlines for filing an injury claim, it is critical that you meet with an attorney as soon as possible to evaluate your case. In Oklahoma, the statute of limitation for settling an Automobile Accident claim is two (2) years from when the collision occurred. If you or a loved one has been involved in an Auto Accident that is nearing the deadline for filing an injury claim, it is critical that you meet with an attorney before the two (2) year period has expired. Ideally, it is best to have an Attorney on your side as soon as possible.
