Statute of Limitations on Dram Shop Claims
After a drunk driver causes an accident in Oklahoma, a two-year statute of limitations begins on the same day as that crash. The reason why the driver was drunk does not change that time limit. With that said, dram shop claims filed in Oklahoma are still subjected to that same two-year statute of limitations.
When the statute of limitations expires, you can technically still file an injury claim against the bar or restaurant who provided too much alcohol to the person who crashed into you. However, the defendant can ask the court to dismiss your claim on the grounds of the expired statute, and the court is almost guaranteed to agree with them. There are very rare circumstances in which a court would override the statute of limitations.
