Hit-and-run is a serious crime that results in equally severe consequences. Convictions result in fines, restitution, and jail time. When a driver hits a pedestrian or another car and drives away, victims are often left to deal with serious injuries and fatalities. After the criminal case is concluded, the Oklahoma hit-and-run attorneys at Martin Jean & Jackson help maximize compensation for accident victims.

Under Oklahoma Statute § 10-102.1, leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death is a felony punishable by a fine of up to $10,000 and/or up to 10 years in prison.
Our Oklahoma personal injury law firm is known for personal representation from lawyers combining more than a century of legal experience. Each hit-and-run accident is unique and our attorneys treat each personal injury case individually, developing strategies to fit each claim.
Drivers leave the scene of an accident for many reasons, including:
In some situations, the hit-and-run driver does not have car insurance. Uninsured motorist coverage in your policy enables our lawyers to file a claim against your insurance provider without affecting your insurance rates or insurability. Although many clients hesitate to pursue legal action against their own insurance companies, all options must be explored, especially when the responsible party cannot be found. While you focus on getting the medical care you need, we use our resources to maximize compensation for your injuries.
Even without vital information to identify the driver, options are still available for securing compensation for your injuries. Our attorneys have represented more than 15,000 clients in a complete range of injury and car accident cases, including hit-and-run accidents. We explore every option to ensure that you receive fair compensation for current and future medical care.
In Oklahoma it is illegal to hit something or someone with your car or vehicle and just leave the scene. This is more technically called Leaving the Scene of an Accident.
Hit-and-run cases are complex, so getting started as soon as possible is essential. Call our firm for a consultation with an Oklahoma hit-and-run lawyer.
