A personal injury attorney
can make a huge difference

In the United States there are more than six million car accidents a year, many of which require medical attention or result in personal injury cases. There are many other occasions in which there may be accidents, loss of health, and eventually even personal injury claims: defective products, medical malpractice, accidents in commercial premises… Personal injury law covers many cases, and it is important that you know your rights in case of suffering an injury due to the actions or negligence of others.

Filing a personal injury claim is a long and complicated process, which requires an experienced lawyer to face your insurance company and obtain fair compensation that covers your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages that were the result of suffering an injury – or even wrongful death in the worst of cases.
Types of personal injury cases

Car and truck accidents are the most frequent cause of personal injury lawsuits, but there are many other causes – an experienced lawyer can help you find ways to get compensation for expenses and complications resulting from an accident.

Some examples of personal injury cases in which you could file a successful claim are:
defective products that caused injuries (this is called product liability)
medicines or medical devices that made your condition worse or created a new problem
medical malpractice, neglect or abuse in a medical residence or a home for the elderly
slip and fall accidents in a commercial or professional environment.

How to choose a personal injury lawyer

Filing an injury claim is not something you can do on your own – the processes are complicated and detailed, and insurance companies will be looking for any excuse to reduce or cancel your compensation.

Hiring personal injury lawyers can be difficult because there are many legal options, and Oklahoma city personal injury attorneys are usually very aggressive in their advertising. 

The first thing you should do is make sure you are dealing with a qualified lawyer, who has all the certifications required by law. Ideally, look for a lawyer who has been practicing law in your district – someone who already knows the system and can get medical records without difficulty. Someone with experience in workers compensation would be a good fit for a personal injury case, since trial lawyers in that practice area have a wide range of overlap with injury compensation law.

Communication is crucial when it comes to legal advice. Choose a lawyer with whom you can talk comfortably and who clearly explains the status of your legal matters.
