In the year 2011, there were approximately 189 traffic accidents every single day in Oklahoma. According to the Oklahoma Crash Facts Report, 36,294 people were injured in Oklahoma traffic accidents during that same year. It is important for anyone who has been injured in an Oklahoma car accident to take the necessary steps to protect his or her rights.
Oklahoma car crash injury attorneys advise that immediately following the crash, it is imperative that you contact the authorities, exchange information, take photos of the crash site, and seek medical attention. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial for a speedy and complete recovery. Furthermore, symptoms can get much worse if you are not treated right away. Failing to see a doctor right away can even be used against you if the at-fault driver’s insurance company decides to fight the claim.
If you are undergoing treatment, it is critical that you save all your bills. It is also necessary for victims to keep a log of all their expenses including emergency room costs, doctor office visits, rehabilitation costs, medication expenses, cost of medical devices, and so on. Some of these expenses may not even be covered by your health insurance. Accident victims may have to pay out of pocket for expenses such as physical therapy sessions without receiving fair compensation.
