    • Eyewitness interviews: People who witnessed your crash could have the best information about what happened. Allow us to interview them for you.
    • Damage calculations: Once we have a good understanding of your crash and the injuries you suffered, we can accurately calculate your economic and noneconomic damages that the liable party should provide you.
    • Filing the claim: After all investigations and calculations are completed, it will be time to create your claim and file it.

    Who Is Liable for Your Car Accident?

    Oklahoma is what is known as an “at-fault state.” This means that, after a car accident, the person who caused the accident can be held legally liable for any injuries, losses, or damages they cause.

    This is true even when multiple parties share some portion of the blame; under Oklahoma’s modified comparative negligence rule, a person who is injured in an auto accident can still recover damages even if they were partially at fault, as long as they are found to be less at-fault than the other motorist. In such cases, the injured individual’s total recovery will be reduced by the same percentage of blame they are found to have.

    For example, if you were hit by someone who was texting and driving, causing them to run a red light, but you were speeding at the time of the accident, the jury may decide that you are 30 percent at fault for the accident.

    If your total damages—that is, the cost of your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other economic and non-economic losses—amounts to $10,000, you will only be able to recover the total amount minus 30 percent, or $7,000.

    Choose a Team With Over 100 Years of Combined Experience

    Navigating the personal injury system takes a certain degree of experience and skill. Your Oklahoma City car accident attorney should understand the process and how to negotiate aggressively with insurance companies.

    It is also important that you work with a lawyer who has experience taking cases to trial; while the majority of car accident claims are settled, sometimes, it is necessary to pursue litigation in order to ensure that you receive all of the damages to which you are entitled. When this is the case, you need an attorney who knows how to represent your best interests before a judge and/or jury.

    At Martin, Jean & Jackson, we have over a century of combined legal experience and have recovered more than $500 million on behalf of our clients. We are prepared to put our extensive experience and aggressive reputation on your side, while also providing you with the personalized attention and legal guidance you need and deserve.
