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
- 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.
