Oklahoma Personal Injury FAQs

If you were injured as a result of some else’s negligence, whether it was a car accident, medical malpractice, nursing home negligence, slip & fall or other premises liability incident, or any other type of injury, you might be entitled to monetary recovery from the parties responsible. Below are answers to a few of the more common questions clients ask regarding personal injury claims from the Tulsa personal injury attorneys at Levinson Law, P.C.

What is the time limit for filing a personal injury claim?

Most legal claims have a time limit, known as a “statute of limitations.” In order to seek damages, you must file your claim within the time limit. Individual cases may vary based on special circumstances, but generally, personal injury cases in Oklahoma must be brought within two years from the date of injury.

If the injured party is a minor, or if the case involves certain particular types of claims, the limitations period might differ. Additionally, in some cases, the statute of limitations can be “tolled,” meaning the limitations clock does not start ticking until a later date.

What types of damages are available for my Tulsa personal injury claim?

Whether you have a claim for personal injury or wrongful death, there are generally two categories of damages you can seek: economic and noneconomic. Economic damages are those that can be easily quantified, while noneconomic damages are harder to quantify but are no less real.

Economic damages include costs like:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical expenses, past and future
  • Property damage

Noneconomic damages include harm such as:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of life enjoyment

Additionally, if the defendant was especially reckless or malicious, you might be entitled to punitive damages. These are additional damages beyond those necessary to “compensate” an injury victim and are intended to punish wrongdoers. If your loved one was killed by a drunk driver, for example, you might have a claim for punitive damages.

Are there limits on the damages I can recover?

Oklahoma, like some other states, places caps on the amount of damages a personal injury victim can recover. Economic damages are generally not limited, other than that they must be tied to actual damages proven. Noneconomic damages (e.g., pain and suffering) in Oklahoma used to be capped at $350,000, but the Oklahoma Supreme Court recently overturned that cap, finding it unconstitutional.

What is “comparative fault,” “comparative negligence,” or “shared fault,” and how will it affect my claim?

Comparative negligence is a doctrine that reduces the damages available to a plaintiff based on their percentage of responsibility for causing the incident that led to the injury. Oklahoma follows a “modified comparative negligence” rule, which says that a plaintiff’s damages will be reduced by their percentage of fault, up to 50 percent. If the plaintiff is more than 50 percent at fault, they cannot recover any damages.

For example, suppose a car accident victim suffers $10,000 in damages when they are hit by a driver who runs a stop sign. The victim, however, was texting while driving at the time of the accident. If the judge or jury finds that the victim was 30% at fault, then their maximum recovery would be $7,000. If the judge or jury finds that the victim was 51% at fault because they were texting, then the victim cannot recover anything.

Our Areas Of Practice
Personal Injury
Suffering a severe personal injury can be a traumatic, jarring experience. You may be unable to work for a time while facing mounting medical bills, property damages, and other costs, as well as suffering psychological and emotional harm resulting from the incident. If the incident ended in the death of a loved one, you are likely trying to process the grief and devastation...
Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
We entrust the care of our most vulnerable loved ones to nursing homes, assisted living facilities, long-term care facilities, rehabilitation centers, and home health aides. Our elderly and disabled relatives are often unable to care for themselves and require help with everyday activities such as eating, drinking, showering, getting dressed, and grooming. We expect long-term...
Nursing & Medication Errors
Nursing homes and other long-term care facilities are responsible for more than just basic care and housing of their elderly or disabled residents. Many, if not most, nursing home residents are taking one or more forms of medication for a variety of maladies. Long-term care facilities are responsible for ensuring that residents get the medication they are prescribed....
Dog Bites
In Oklahoma, the law provides for victims to seek compensation for their injuries through a dog bite lawsuit. However, navigating the legal process can be complex, and having a knowledgeable Tulsa dog bite lawyer from Levinson Law, P.C. can be an invaluable resource.
Oil-Field Accidents
The oil and gas industry is a prevalent part of the Oklahoma economy. Thousands of people are employed by oil and gas companies across the state, providing a livelihood for many families. Energy companies, however, are far too often more concerned with profit margins than with keeping their workers safe. Inadequate training, shortcuts in hiring, failing to update and maintain...
Car Accidents
Every year, thousands of people in Oklahoma and across the country are injured or killed in car crashes. In 2018, 32,536 people were injured in traffic accidents in Oklahoma, and 655 people were killed. Many of these accidents are avoidable. Unfortunately, people drive recklessly or while impaired, vehicles malfunction, and drivers ignore hazards and dangers on the road. If you...
Trucking Accidents
The freight industry is an integral part of the economy in Oklahoma and across the country. Semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, eighteen-wheelers, and other large trucks are a regular feature of state and interstate roads. Unfortunately, they can also be dangerous. When a truck driver is fatigued or intoxicated, a truck is overloaded or unbalanced, a vehicle has malfunctioning parts...
Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycles can be a fun, economical, and fuel-efficient alternative to driving a typical car or truck. Many people simply enjoy riding motorcycles more than driving a car. Motorcycles are, unfortunately, dangerous. In fact, motorcycle crashes are 28 times more likely to be fatal than other forms of motor vehicle crash. Motorcyclists are directly exposed to other vehicles,...
Premises Liability
Slip and fall accidents are incredibly common in Tulsa and across Oklahoma. According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), slips, trips, and falls are responsible for around 15 percent of all serious injuries and accidental deaths across the country every year. More than 540,000 people are injured each year nationwide from...
Medical Malpractice
When you see a doctor, you have certain expectations. You expect the doctor to have the proper training and expertise necessary to identify your medical condition and ensure appropriate treatment. You expect the physician, the staff, and anyone else involved to provide you with the medical care and treatment that you need to recover and to take the responsibility to avoid...
Traumatic Brain Injury
A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is, quite literally, a jarring experience. A TBI can occur whenever you suffer a severe blow to the head, which can, in turn, damage the brain. TBIs are disturbingly common: Each year, nearly two million Americans suffer from some form of severe head injury. More than 50,000 people die nationwide from TBI, and thousands more suffer long-term...
Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal cord injuries can be devastating. Damage to your spinal cord can leave you unable to use certain limbs, limit the function of bodily organs, and can be fatal. A spine injury can affect your ability to work, to enjoy your life, and to interact with your loved ones. Treating spinal cord injuries can be expensive and long-term, and may not yield complete recovery. If you or...
Wrongful Death
The sudden loss of a family member to an accident is a devastating experience. When the death could have been avoided had someone else not acted negligently or recklessly, it can feel like insult has been added to an already traumatic injury. While nothing can make up for the loss your family has suffered, making sure that the parties responsible are held to task night at least...
Oil-Field Pollution
The Oklahoma oil industry is an economic powerhouse, contributing significantly to the state’s revenue and employment. However, with the benefits come certain environmental and health challenges, notably oil-field pollution. This issue, often linked to personal injuries, requires legal expertise to ensure affected individuals receive just compensation.
Property Injury
Property damage claims may arise when a person, business, municipality, or some other entity causes damage to your personal or professional property. You may have suffered damage to your land, vehicles, building, structures, or even to your animals and livestock. If your property was damaged as a result of someone else’s willful acts or negligence, you are entitled to...
