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.
We Can Help You Seek the Maximum Compensation You Are Owed
After a car accident, you may find yourself facing a number of new, unexpected challenges. Depending on the nature and severity of your injuries, you could need emergency medical care and/or ongoing treatment. You may find yourself unable to work for weeks or even months as you heal. If your injuries are disabling, they may even prevent you from returning to work at full capacity (or at all) indefinitely. And, of course, suffering through such an ordeal can leave lasting emotional scars and significant trauma.
At Martin, Jean & Jackson, we can assist you in seeking maximum compensation for all of your damages, including but not limited to:
The cost of all medical treatment related to the accident, such as:
- Emergency transportation/care
- Ongoing medical treatment
- Physical rehabilitative therapy
- Medications/pain management
- Medical equipment (wheelchairs, prosthetics, etc.)
Lost income associated with the accident, including:
- Lost wages from time taken off work to heal/seek treatment
- Lost future earnings if you are unable to return to work
- Reduced earning capacity if your injuries are partially or totally disabling
- Lost benefits, including future benefits
- Property damage, including the cost of vehicle repairs
- Modifications to your home to accommodate your injuries/treatment
- The cost of treatment for mental/emotional conditions associated with the accident
Non-economic damages, meaning those without a definable price tag, such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other conditions
At Martin, Jean & Jackson, we understand the full, true impact a car accident can have on your life, and we are prepared to fight for the full, fair compensation you are owed.

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.
