Oklahoma Accident and Injury Law
Accidents and injuries are to be expected in the normal course of life, in Oklahoma and elsewhere. Personal injury claims comprise a significant portion of all civil claims filed in Oklahoma courts and includes everything from premises liability claims to wrongful death lawsuits. The rules and procedures for accident and injury claims are quite similar from one state to the next, but tend to vary by statutes of limitations, available damages, and how comparative liability impacts claims. In Oklahoma, for example, the damages a plaintiff may claim for injuries may be reduced in proportion to the plaintiff's own role in causing the injuries.
