What is the statute of limitations in Oklahoma?
A statute of limitations refers to the time limit someone has to file a personal injury claim. If a claim is filed outside of these time limits their case will most likely be invalid and they will lose their right to compensation. These laws differ state by state, in Oklahoma the statute of limitations is two years from the date of injury. Oklahoma recognizes that there are reasonable exceptions to filing a claim in this time period for certain cases. If you aren't sure if you qualify for one an attorney can assist you.
What Damages Are Available in Personal Injury Cases?
There are three main damages available in a personal injury claim punitive, economic, and non-economic. Non-economic damages also called general damages, compensate for abstract losses associated with an injury such as pain and suffering while economic damages compensation for more quantifiable losses such as medical expenses and missed days at work. In 2011 Oklahoma put a cap of $350,000 on how much non-economic damages can be award.
Punitive damages are different from economic and non-economic since their main purpose is to punish the negligent party. In order for punitive damages to be awarded, it must be shown that the negligent party knew their actions could cause harm and did so anyway.
Is It Possible to Suffer PTSD From an Injury Accident?
While post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is most often associated with members of the military or individuals who suffer extremely traumatic events, suffering an injury in an accident can also cause PTSD. In fact, The National Institute of Mental Health states that anyone “experiencing a shocking, scary, or dangerous event” can develop this order. Learn more about the signs and symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder and how it can affect your personal injury case by reading our blog, “Proving PTSD in Personal Injury Cases.”
