Don’t Let Time Kill Your Car Wreck’s Value

Don’t Let Time Kill Your Car Wreck’s Value

Oklahoma has strict rules about the length of time you have to sue someone. These rules are called statutes of limitation. If you don’t sue an individual who injured you in a car wreck within the proper time — 2 years in personal injury cases — then you can’t ever sue them in the future. This prohibition can have a serious effect on the value of your car wreck. But it’s not just the statutes that can hurt the value of your auto accident.

Recently, several injury victims contacted us to help handle their car wreck claims. Through no fault of their own, these victims received injuries in auto accidents. Unfortunately, they believed that the other party’s insurance company would treat them fairly. That wasn’t the case.

The individuals soon became frustrated with having “the run around” by the other party’s insurance company, and quickly let their claims “rest.” These folks quickly discovered that time is not on your side in an auto accident, especially if you have a “disputed case.”

Claims adjusters want to do their best to delay payments on difficult cases because that means you forget about the 2 year time limit, or get so frustrated with the process you accept a lower settlement amount. In these cases, victims must rush to find an attorney or receive less than their case’s true value.

In any car accident, you shouldn’t let the other side’s insurance company dictate how you handle your claim. You must be very proactive in fighting for the compensation you deserve. You should seek the advice of an experience auto accident attorney immediately.

Oklahoma’s Unfavorable Personal Injury Evidence Code

Back in 2011, Oklahoma’s legislators eagerly passed “tort reform” actions to protect Oklahoma’s citizens from higher medical bills. In my opinion, all of the tort reform laws harm Oklahoma’s own citizens, and only reward big insurance companies who only care about their shareholders, not their clients. One of the tort reform laws placed was a new ruleContinue Reading

So You Want to be a Landlord (or Tenant)

Landlord-tenant law in Oklahoma is pretty “cut-and-dried.” Title 41 of the Oklahoma Statutes outlines the dos and don’ts of the landlord tenant relationship. Our office routinely gets questioned from landlords and from tenants on the nuanced issues. We generally give landlords and tenants five rules about the relationships: Rule 1: Get it in writing ContractsContinue Reading

One More Reason to Get Insurance

There are a number of people driving without insurance in Oklahoma. This is dangerous and against the law. Unfortunately, there’s little or no risk for those people who decide they want to break the law. However, Oklahoma’s legislature is trying to get closer to the mandate by enacting 47 O.S. 7-116, which encourages everyone toContinue Reading
