Types of Car Accident Claims
We have extensive experience in high-value negotiations and trials, along with the ability and resources to earn positive results in car accident cases.
We often handle cases arising from:
- Fatal car accidents leading to wrongful death claims and litigation
- Injuries to a driver, passenger, or both — ranging from serious lacerations and broken bones to catastrophic, life-changing brain and spinal injuries, limb loss, burns, or blindness
- Drunk driving accidents
- Accidents caused by an uninsured or underinsured driver
- Rear-end collisions, head-on collisions, T-bone accidents, and other wrecks often caused by excessive speed, failure to follow other traffic laws, or other negligence such as texting and driving
- Accidents involving government vehicles, which may require your lawyer to be familiar with special claim procedures and strict statutes of limitation
You can turn to our caring and knowledgeable lawyers for the information you need, including auto insurance do's and don'ts for protecting your claim and guidance on handling medical bills that may have piled up since your car accident. Your lawyer will be well-versed in accident investigation and prepared to reach a positive resolution through insurance negotiations or at trial if necessary.
Laws Involving Hit & Run
Like most states, Oklahoma law requires that all people involved in a car accident stay at the scene. Oklahoma Statute § 10-104 says that both drivers must give insurance information as well as render aid if necessary. Each driver must provide his or her name, address, and registration number. These are usually given via driver’s license.
However, what if one driver decides to flee? Oklahoma Statute § 10-103 states that failure to stop and follow the requirements mentioned above may result in criminal charges. Any damages to the vehicle, but not to the person, may come with a misdemeanor and a $500 fine. In some circumstances, that misdemeanor can result in up to one year of jail time.
Uninsured & Underinsured Motorist Accidents
One of the most alarming things anyone can learn after an injury-causing car accident is that the driver who caused the crash had no liability insurance at all. Although driving without insurance is illegal, the reality is that some of the most irresponsible and dangerous drivers on our roadways take the risk every day.
In many other situations, accident victims' medical expenses and other damages significantly exceed the limits of the at-fault driver's coverage. This is especially common when the at-fault party has only a "bare bones" policy meeting Oklahoma state minimum coverage levels of $25,000 per injured individual and $50,000 for any one accident. Costs of essential treatment for moderate injuries can easily exceed these amounts.
At Nichols Dixon, our Norman uninsured motorist accident lawyers know all the options for recovering compensation under these challenging circumstances. In fact, an in-house former auto claims representative is always available to thoroughly analyze your case.
- Carefully reviewing your own auto insurance policy, which may include uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UI) coverage designed specifically for these situations — and to cover injuries caused by hit-and-run drivers who cannot be identified
- Determining whether any other insurance policies that you or family members carry apply under these circumstances
- Performing an asset check on the uninsured individual to determine whether a lawsuit could realistically yield a collectible judgment that would help address your damages and financial hardship
