Why should you hire an Oklahoma City personal injury attorney after an accident?

Insurance Companies Don’t Want You To

You Have a Limited Time to Act

Valuing a Case is Challenging

You’ll Probably Be Blamed

There’s No Risk in Getting Help

Before founding McGuire Law Firm, Kent McGuire spent years defending insurance companies. In fact, he defended them against the very same type of claims he raises today. As a direct result of this experience, and in his time as a personal injury lawyer, he knows just how hard insurers will work to resolve a case before a lawyer gets involved.

Why? Insurance companies know that they’re much more likely to get away with denying a claim or getting a victim to accept a lower offer when they’re not represented by an attorney.

Insurers know that they’ll have to play by the rules and take your case seriously when you’re represented by a lawyer. That’s why you should not engage with an insurer or consider a settlement offer until you’ve enlisted the help of our qualified team. We’ll stand up to insurers for you and help you fight to get all of the compensation you deserve.

Do not wait too long to contact our attorneys after you are involved in an accident in Oklahoma City. While you might be entitled to compensation, you will not have an unlimited amount of time to demand the money you need.

In Oklahoma, the statute of limitations for most personal injury lawsuits is two years. The clock begins to run when you’re involved in an accident or when you discover that you’ve been injured – whichever occurs later.

While there are some exceptions to this general rule, you will lose out on valuable compensation if you do not file your claim before time runs out.

How much is your personal injury case worth? Insurance companies will go out of their way to answer this question. You certainly don’t want to give them the opportunity to do so. By hiring a lawyer, you’ll be able to make a strong demand for compensation that’s backed by solid evidence.

At McGuire Law Firm, our attorneys regularly enlist the guidance and assistance of experts in Oklahoma City. This might include medical professionals, psychologists, vocational rehabilitation specialists, appraisers, and anyone else who might be able to provide some insight into your injuries.

With the information they provide, we’ll be better able to understand the impact your personal injuries have on your life – and how they might affect you in the future. By taking the time to get this information, we’ll be better prepared to advocate for you and secure a substantial award on your behalf.

Following an Oklahoma City accident, there’s a good chance that no one will raise their hand and admit fault. Insurance companies will certainly go out of their way to point fingers and assign blame. They’ll probably even try to blame you – regardless of whether or not you played a role in your accident. If these tactics are left unchecked, you risk losing out on some or all of the money you deserve.

That’s because Oklahoma is a modified comparative negligence state. Simply put, you can recover compensation as long as you share no more than half of the blame for your personal injuries. If you are allocated blame, your damages will be reduced. If you’re assigned more than half of the blame, you’ll be barred from getting any money, at all. 

So, it is critical to disprove the claims that you share responsibility or, at the very least, minimize your role in the accident. Our attorneys in Oklahoma City will work diligently to make that happen. How? We’ll investigate thoroughly and gather evidence that shows others are at fault. The less blame you share, the more money you can ultimately get at the end of the day.

Medical bills are adding up. You’re out of work, so your income has come to a halt. You’ve drained your savings. So, you might think that you simply can’t afford to ask for help. That’s not the case when you call McGuire Law Firm for legal advice and assistance. Our personal injury lawyers in Oklahoma work on a contingency basis.

It’s simple:

  • There are no upfront or hidden fees
  • We cover all legal expenses and court costs associated with your case, and
  • You pay us nothing until we recover a settlement or win an award at trial.

Our firm will receive a pre-determined percentage of your financial recovery once we’ve won. So, there’s absolutely no risk in asking for our help. If we don’t win, you don’t pay for our legal representation. End of story.

Client Reviews

Kent McGuire and his staff are a true-life support system not just a law firm. My personal injury case was extremely long and lasted for well over 5 years. My family was left to starve and nothing to live on without Kent I wouldn’t have the blessed life I have now. He kept our heads above so we didn’t lose our home and everything we’d worked so hard for.

Tanya R.

Thank you for all your hard work, persistence, and honesty! You and Mrs. McGuire have been such a blessing, and pleasure to work with! We cannot thank you guys enough.

Nikkiey M.

Kent McGuire and Linda McGuire are professional, concise, reliable, and reasonable lawyers. From the beginning of our personal injury case (when we were unsure) through the end of our case the McGuire Law Firm communicated with us. We were informed every step of the way. They are a proactive team that kept us up to date, what was planned, why it was relevant, the next steps, and the possible outcomes.

Karen Calvert

McGuire Law firm did a great job taking care of my brother, definitely recommend him as a Lawyer with a great team.

Nick Roma

Fantastic firm! Went in expecting 0, few months later walked out with more than I can imagine. Communication was fantastic! Completely recommend them!!!

Dave Shiner

The McGuire law firm helped me out exponentially with my case. When this whole thing started I was a kid, pretty much fresh out of high school, and didn’t know anything about what was going on with my personal injury case. Kent took it and gave me hope. I highly recommend the McGuires, they are very down to earth, and actually want to help instead of just making a buck.

Jason Rodgers

I was in need of finding an accident lawyer near Oklahoma City and luckily found Kent McGuire. He got back to me amazingly fast, and was very responsive to all my questions and concerns. I couldn’t ask for more from an attorney!

Common Types of Personal Injury Cases in Oklahoma City, OK

Car Accidents

Car Accidents

Insurance companies in Oklahoma City will attempt to do anything to deny your claim for benefits or minimize the amount you’re ultimately awarded for your injuries after a car accident. Our personal injury attorneys have spent decades fighting the biggest insurers in the nation – and winning big for our clients. Thanks to prior experience defending insurers in the same types of cases we handle today, we know precisely what steps have to be taken to secure meaningful compensation on behalf of crash victims just like you.

Dog Bites

Dog Bites

A dog bite can cause extensive injuries, permanent disfigurement, and leave a victim with a lifetime of emotional distress. The dog’s owner – and anyone else who might have contributed to the attack – has to be held fully accountable. Our attorneys will carefully investigate your personal injury case and aggressively pursue compensation on your behalf.

Bicycle Accidents

Bicycle Accidents

Oklahoma City is the deadliest city for bicyclists in the nation. Why? The city lacks the infrastructure that’s necessary to protect riders. At the same time, drivers of large vehicles simply don’t share the road safely. To make matters worse, at-fault motorists tend to blame riders when a bicycle accident occurs. Our personal injury team will fight to stop these tactics from working, protect your right to recover compensation, and work hard to maximize your award.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful Death

Every year, dozens of families in and around Oklahoma City mourn an unexpected and devastating loss. Our law firm is here to help these grieving families navigate these challenging times. Money recovered through a wrongful death lawsuit will certainly not take away the pain of a tragedy, but it can help to make life a little bit easier as you move on.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are, sadly, all too common in Oklahoma City. Whether you slipped on ice in a parking lot or fall through broken stairs at a downtown restaurant, you can get seriously hurt. Property owners must accept responsibility for your injuries if you got hurt because they cut corners and didn’t take the precautions necessary to keep you safe. Our personal injury attorneys will work day and night to make that a reality for you.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists are extremely vulnerable to catastrophic, life-changing injuries when they’re involved in a crash. Wearing a helmet can help to minimize the risk of brain injuries and death, but other trauma can still fundamentally change a rider’s life forever. Many times, motorcyclists get hurt because of the way other motorists behave on the road – whether that’s due to tailgating, speeding, or distracted driving. Our Oklahoma City personal injury attorneys will investigate your motorcycle crash exhaustively and seek compensation from anyone who caused you to get hurt.

Truck Accidents

Truck Accidents

While truck drivers can certainly get hurt in a collision, it tends to be the occupants of smaller vehicles that suffer the worst consequences. Many times, truck accident victims suffer from chronic pain and permanent disabilities. As a result, the costs of a truck accident can easily exceed hundreds of thousands of dollars over the course of a lifetime. Our Oklahoma City lawyers will aggressively pursue compensation from all liable parties – including truck drivers, trucking companies, motorists, and even government agencies. Find out if you can pursue a personal injury case against the negligent driver.

Taxi Accidents

Taxi Accidents

While taking an Uber or Lyft might make your life a little bit easier, it’s not always the safest choice. Rideshare drivers aren’t professionals. They don’t have special training or certifications. So, you really don’t know who’s behind the wheel. To complicate matters, the rideshare company will likely deny responsibility after a crash. Insurance companies will point fingers, too. So, getting money can be challenging. Our personal injury lawyers will stand up for you, determine who’s responsible, and demand the compensation you deserve.

And More

And More

At McGuire Law Firm, no case is too big or too small. We represent clients in all personal injury matters in Oklahoma City, including medical malpractice lawsuits, product liability cases, bad faith insurance lawsuits, and more. If you’ve been injured through little-to-no fault of your own in an accident in OKC, all you have to do is reach out to our qualified and experienced legal team. We’ll handle every aspect of your personal injury claim from beginning to end. Give us a call today to learn more.

Oklahoma City, OK Accident Statistics

Oklahoma City is not only the largest city in the state of Oklahoma, it’s also the busiest. The city’s roads are jam-packed with traffic morning, noon, and night. So, it’s not surprising that traffic accidents are fairly common in Oklahoma City. In fact, it ranks as the 30th most dangerous city for drivers in the United States. 

In 2019, there were a total of 19,930 motor vehicle accidents reported in Oklahoma City, OK. That accounts for about one-third of all collisions in the entire state of Oklahoma and an 8% increase from the year prior.

At least 5,418 of those collisions left victims struggling with a wide range of injuries. So, for every four traffic accidents in Oklahoma City, more than one causes an injury of some sort. 

Sadly, Oklahoma City averages 6 fatal car accidents every month. In 2019, 75 collisions took the lives of drivers, passengers, bicyclists, pedestrians, and other commuters in the city.

What Compensation Can I Recover From a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

When you file a personal injury lawsuit after an accident in Oklahoma City, you’re asking to be compensated for the damage and injuries you’ve suffered. The money that you’re awarded is called “compensatory damages.”

In Oklahoma, compensatory damages are divided into two distinct categories: economic and non-economic. Note that punitive damages, which are awarded for the sole purpose of punishing a defendant, are sometimes also available.

Economic Damages

Compensation that’s paid to essentially reimburse you for the financial costs, expenses, and losses associated with your accident or injury. These damages have specific financial values. Examples include:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Disability
  • Reduced earning capacity, and
  • Property damage.

When you recover an award of economic damages, you should be made financially whole. In other words, it should be as if the accident never happened at all (at least in terms of your wallet).

Non-Economic Damages

Accidents can have an impact on your life in many different ways. Not all of the consequences come with a receipt or have a standard value. Rather, some injuries are very personal and subjective. Examples include:

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

Many times, these damages are calculated by applying a factor to the value of your economic damages. The more severe your suffering, the higher the factor. The higher the factor, the higher your award. Oklahoma recently removed a cap on non-economic damages.

Punitive Damages

Punitive damages are only awarded in situations where a defendant’s actions were so reprehensible that a jury determines punishment is appropriate. These awards are subject to a cap – $100,000 or twice your actual damages.

After an accident in Oklahoma City, it’s important to work with a lawyer who will take a detail-oriented approach to your case. It’s critical to both identify all damages to which you may be entitled under the law and work diligently to ensure that the value of those damages is calculated properly.

McGuire Law Firm takes a comprehensive approach to the cases we handle, and you can count on us to seek maximum compensation on your behalf.
