What are car accident damages available in Oklahoma?

Like other states, Oklahoma laws offer victims of car accidents the opportunity to seek compensation when the accident was not their fault. This compensation is invaluable in helping to pay for the costs of medical care as well as some other expenses. These are known as damages and are available to victims under certain circumstances.

Car accidents: The driving mistakes of teens can put you at risk

If you have ever wondered why insurance rates are so much higher for teens, rest assured that there is a good reason. Unfortunately, teen drivers have more car accidents than older drivers do. As such, insurance companies typically impose higher rates for teen-aged motorists. The underlying truth of this practice is that insurance companies have analyzed the data and know just how dangerous new drivers can be.

Oklahoma DUI accident claims second victim

When it comes to holidays and DUIs, New Year's Eve may be the king. People typically attend a party, have a few drinks and figure they're safe to drive. Even those who don't drink heavily usually ring in the new year with a toast and that can be enough to cause a car accident. Even with all the warnings to not drink and drive on this holiday, every New Year's Day starts with a few tragic stories of innocents who lost their lives. This New Year's Eve was no different in Oklahoma.

How to Win a Car Accident Claim in Oklahoma

Life can change drastically after a motor vehicle accident. Indeed, many car accidents lead to loss of life. The US Federal Law puts a timeframe within which you can file a lawsuit after an offender harms you. In Oklahoma, the statute of limitation gives you two years to file a complaint after a car crash. The deadline applies to both personal injury and damage to the car. However, the restriction does not hold for the filing of an insurance claim. The statute also does not apply when the accident involves government vehicles. The time limit in such a case is very short. If a government auto hits your car, you will need to file a claim to the relevant government agency immediately. Otherwise, you will lose your compensation rights.

What to expect in borrowed car accidents
