Determining Fault and Liability in Oklahoma City Car Accidents

By Car Accident Help on October 10, 2012

A key component of pursuing compensation following an Oklahoma City car accident is to determine who was at fault for the crash. Oklahoma law allows victims of car crashes to recover damages if their responsibility for the crash is 49 percent or less. This is why it is crucial that drivers do not admit fault for the crash or discuss the specifics of the collision with an insurance provider without first talking to a skilled Oklahoma City car accident injury lawyer.

There are many factors that will help determine fault and liability for a crash. In some cases, the at-fault driver will face citations for running a red light, speeding, or violating another traffic law. There are many collisions, however, where determining liability can be much more complicated.

Some Oklahoma City car accidents result from defective auto parts, dangerous roadway conditions, or inclement weather. A thorough investigation will be needed to prove liability for these types of collisions. Victims of accidents involving multiple vehicles may struggle to receive compensation as insurance providers pass blame from one provider to another. A skilled car accident attorney will work with investigators to prove how the accident occurred and if negligence was a contributing factor in the collision.

Negligent drivers can be held accountable for medical bills, hospitalization fees, lost wages, pain and suffering, the cost of rehabilitation services, and other related damages. Each case is different, but all victims of serious injuries should protect their rights by speaking with a skilled car accident attorney.

The legal team at the Maples Law Firm knows how to hold at-fault drivers accountable for their actions. We offer free case evaluations at (888) 226-6159 to anyone who has suffered a loss because of the carelessness or recklessness of an Oklahoma driver.
