Determining Liability in an Oklahoma Car Crashgriffinreynoldswriter
Car crashes can happen unexpectedly and often at the worst of times when you may not have coverage or when you have coverage, but not enough to cover all of the medical bills if you suffer serious and debilitating injuries. The good news is that with the right car accident attorney at your side, you can obtain monetary compensation to cover the cost of your injuries and recovery. If you’ve suffered injuries in an Oklahoma car crash, the experienced auto accident lawyers at the Law Firm of Griffin Reynolds are here to help.
Determining Liability and Negligence
While it is possible to obtain fair compensation after an Oklahoma car accident, the success of your case depends on two main factors; liability and negligence. Negligence covers a broad range of actions, but in the case of a car wreck, negligence means that the driver was either not following the law or drove in a careless or reckless manner.
Liability attributes fault to the negligent driver and states that the negligent driver is liable for any damages the resulted from the wreck. This can include car damages, possibly road damages, and medical expenses from injuries sustained by victims due to the accident.
What to Do After a Car Crash
The first thing you should do after a car accident is to seek medical attention and contact that police. Even if the seems minor, contacting the police will ensure that a police report can be filed which can be important for evidence in your case. Seeking out medical attention will put your injuries n record and can help avoid the consequences of injuries that may not be apparent immediately after the crash.
If a tow is required, some insurance companies cover this expense, so be sure to request the tow through your insurance company. If possible, you should also take pictures of the accident and your injuries or ask someone else at the scene to do so for you. The others driver’s contact information and insurance information can prove invaluable in defending your claim as the more witness who can corroborate your perspective, the more likely your case will succeed.
