If you have been injured in an auto accident, it is important you speak with an attorney regarding your case. The attorney will explain your rights and obligations in order to preserve your claim and maximize your recovery. Experience has taught us that even a minor injury can often turn into a severe or devastating condition. People involved in a car accidents may experience pain immediately and require immediate medical treatment. Sometimes, pain and injury may not manifest until days or weeks after the accident – these injuries are called soft-tissue injuries.
Unfortunately, car accidents can also result in fatalities. If you have been in an accident, it is important you contact a Tulsa car accident attorney for an evaluation of your case. Even soft-tissue injuries are sometimes more painful and lasting than a simple broken bone. Whiplash is a common injury that might not be apparent at the time of the accident. It is important that you seek immediate medical attention. A delay in this treatment may lead to other serious conditions. Medical professionals may diagnose serious injuries that you aren’t aware of – and documenting the care you receive will be an essential piece of information for all treating experts. Many accident victims believe their insurance will be the only assistance they need. Oklahoma law requires minimal insurance coverage and many drivers don’t have insurance, despite the legal obligation to purchase it. You may not have enough protection to help pay for the long-term damages caused when someone without insurance, or with only the minimum liability limits, crashes into your vehicle. Car accidents can be caused by a number of factors, including drunk driving, improperly maintained roads and construction sites, and reckless or aggressive driving, to name a few.
A car accident victim very often needs the services of an attorney to be able to handle losses and expenses such as the following:
- Immediate medical evaluation, treatment and follow up care.
- Therapy and rehabilitation.
- Replacement of lost wages.
- Compensation for pain and suffering.
