					Tips for Settling a Personal Injury Claim in Oklahoma
Monday, 28 May 2012 17:11




After being involved in a car accident in Oklahoma, probably the last thing on your mind is filing
a personal injury claim to pursue compensation for your injuries and other damages associated
with your injuries. However, doing so as soon as possible after your accident occurs can help
protect you from incurring the sometimes exorbitant costs associated with injury treatment,
long-term medical care, and lost wages resulting from serious car accident injuries. If you have
been injured in a car accident in Oklahoma, contact our qualified car accident attorneys at
Atkins & Markoff today. Our law firm is located in Oklahoma City, and our attorneys have years
of experience protecting the rights of car accident victims in Oklahoma.

    Filing your claim in a timely manner.
  One of the most important things to remember about filing a person injury claim is that it must
be done in a timely manner. It's understandable that involvement in a serious car accident can
take a victim's focus away from pursuing compensation, directed instead towards seeking
proper medical care and returning to work to prevent a major financial burden. Unfortunately,
waiting too long after a car accident occurs in Oklahoma to file a personal injury claim can
adversely affect a car accident victim in more than one way. First, if too much times passes
between the accident and the claim being filed, it may be difficult to draw a connection between
the accident and your injuries. Second, there is a statute of limitations for personal injury claims
in Oklahoma, which means you only have a certain amount of time after an accident to file your
claim, after which you will be ineligible for compensation.
 Pursuing more than just medical costs.
  Hiring an experienced Oklahoma personal injury attorney after suffering injuries in a car
accident is important, especially when determining what to include in your personal injury claim.
Some injured victims will only seek financial compensation for their medical costs, but chances
are good that your injuries cost you much more than just your hospital bill. Ask your personal
injury attorney about including lost wages from missed days at work, and pain and suffering to
your personal injury claim, in addition to medical expenses. If a car accident in OK resulted in
the death of your loved one, restitution for the surviving family members will be the basis of your
claim.
 Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney in Oklahoma is key.

another person. For this reason, hiring an experienced personal injury attorney for Oklahoma

settlement from the insurance company or a favorable ruling in court. With the help of our skilled
car accidents attorneys at Atkins & Markoff, victims of serious car accidents in Oklahoma can
