Being involved in a car accident can be physically, mentally, and financially stressful, if not devastating. Car accident victims are often overwhelmed with many stressors, including focusing on recovering, paying bills while being unable to work, corresponding with the insurance companies, and trying to recover the compensation they deserve for their injuries. Insurance adjusters and opposing attorneys know how to take advantage of stressed and injured accident victims.
If you have suffered injuries in a car accident that was caused by another party’s negligence, the last thing you should have to worry about is obtaining what you rightfully deserve from the liable party. Retaining an Oklahoma car accident lawyer at BDIW Law can help you focus on getting better. We can handle getting you maximum compensation for the losses you suffered in your car accident.
The Enormous Cost of Car Accidents
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the economic cost of motor vehicle accidents in Oklahoma in 2019 was $3.420 billion. The average valuation of the reduced quality of life that each crash victim with serious injuries faces is over $6 million, and the average for each fatality victim is over $11 million. The tremendous cost of car accidents is often far higher than what insurance companies offer to pay victims for their economic and non-economic damages.
This is why it is worth it to hire a car accident lawyer in Oklahoma. We can work to get you maximum compensation for your injuries and other losses. We know the tactics the insurance companies use to try to pay out as little as possible, and we will not back down to them.

Reasons You Should Hire a Car Accident Lawyer
There are many benefits to retaining a car accident lawyer if you have suffered injuries in an Oklahoma traffic collision. Doing so will allow you to focus on recovering after your traumatizing accident. Here are some reasons you should hire an Oklahoma car accident attorney to fight for compensation on your behalf.
We Know the Law
Oklahoma has specific laws regarding how to successfully file a personal injury claim and the timeframe in which you must do so. For example, you must demonstrate four elements to prove negligence in the state. These elements are a duty of care, a breach of that duty, proximate cause, and damages.
Further, you only have two years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. This is known as the statute of limitations. If you do not file your claim in this time period, you may be barred from making a claim forever.
We Can Collect the Evidence Needed to Support Your Claim
To prevail in your car accident claim, you must present strong supporting evidence of liability and the harm you have suffered. Such evidence often includes accident scene photos, police reports, witness statements, and your medical records. Sometimes this evidence is difficult to obtain.
We know that you likely cannot focus on recovering from your collision injuries and work to get the evidence needed to support your claim. We will take care of this for you. In addition to collecting physical evidence on your behalf, we will hire necessary expert witnesses and accident reconstructionists when needed.
We Correspond with Insurance Companies
Dealing with insurance adjusters is never easy. Their primary goal is to save their companies money by paying car accident victims as little as possible. They will use a variety of tactics to try to avoid paying you what you deserve for your accident.
An experienced car accident attorney in Oklahoma will correspond with the insurance company on your behalf. We know how to interpret insurance policies and how to avoid their ploys to pay minimum compensation. In addition, we will negotiate with them throughout the litigation process to increase the amount of damages they will offer you as compensation for your losses.
We Can Determine Your Damages
In a car accident case in which you suffered injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to certain damages. Some of these damages can be difficult to put a monetary value on. As a result of this difficulty, you may sell short yourself on what you should be paid.
At BDIW Law, we will collect the evidence necessary to prove your damages. Then we will calculate your economic damages and your non-economic damages and make a demand on the opposing parties. We will not settle for less than what you are entitled to receive.
We Can Prove Liability for Your Accident
In some cases, it may be difficult to prove who was responsible for your car accident. However, we know what evidence to collect and where to look for signs of liability. As previously mentioned, we know what it takes to demonstrate the elements necessary to prove liability in your personal injury case.
We also know Oklahoma’s laws regarding comparative negligence. As long as you were less to blame for causing your car accident than the other negligent parties, we can fight to get you compensation for your injuries. Just because you may have been partly at fault does not mean you cannot have a successful car accident claim.
We Can Try Your Car Accident Case
Sometimes, despite our best efforts, the insurance company or other liable party will simply refuse to offer you a reasonable settlement amount. We will not back down and accept an offer you do not deserve. We will do what it takes to get you the full amount of compensation you deserve.
In some cases, this means taking your case all the way to trial. If this is necessary in your case to maximize your chances of receiving an acceptable amount of damages, we will be well prepared to try your case in front of a jury. Our BDIW Law team has numerous stories of success for our clients because we will not accept less than you deserve.
