The financial strain of a catastrophic injury accident can be as stress-inducing as the injury itself. Instead of resigning yourself to a lifetime spent paying off medical debt, though, you can take action. Oklahoma catastrophic injury survivors have the right to file personal injury claims against the parties responsible for their life-changing accidents.
BDIW strives to provide you with services that efficiently and effectively represent your best interests. We want your fight for catastrophic injury compensation to be as convenient as possible, particularly in the face of your severe injuries. You can consult our personal injury attorneys in Oklahoma to learn more about the ways you can put our experience to use.
Information to Include in a Catastrophic Injury Claim
If you want to take legal action after a catastrophic injury accident, you need to file a personal injury claim with your local civil court. This claim needs to elaborate on:
- The nature of your accident
- The negligence involved in your accident
- The name of the party responsible for your accident
- The losses tied to your accident
- What evidence you have backing your claims
You do not have to gather this information on your own. You can work with an Oklahoma catastrophic injury lawyer to gather this information, format it, and present it within the state’s deadline.
When to File a Catastrophic Injury Claim
You have two years from the day an accident takes place to deliver a completed catastrophic injury claim to an applicable judge. This deadline, outlined in Oklahoma Statutes §12-95, is referred to as the state’s statute of limitations.
You cannot attempt to file a catastrophic injury claim after your statute of limitations passes. Oklahoma’s courts reserve the right to dismiss your complaint without consideration if you try. Filing in two years is no easy feat, though, particularly if you’re relearning the skills you need to take care of yourself on a daily basis.
You can turn to Oklahoma’s catastrophic injury lawyers to help you stay on top of this impending deadline. Our team can streamline the investigative process so that your complaint can make it to the appropriate parties before time runs out.

How Catastrophic Injury Claims Address Your Finances
Catastrophic injury claims give you the means to demand damages in response to the negligence that resulted in your accident. When calculating an estimate of the damages you may be due, be sure to include your:
- Medical expenses, ongoing and future
- Care at home
- Lost wages or opportunities to work
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- PTSD and/or related conditions
- Property restoration
Noting these losses in your claim can help you contend with the bills that come with your post-accident care.
BDIW Offers You Financial Assistance
Oklahoma does not allow law firms nor their attorneys to offer catastrophic accident victims loans. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t means through which we can help you address the financial strain of your recovery, though. BDIW consistently helps clients find financial assistance while pursuing legal action against a negligent party.
Our team can also connect you with medical professionals who can keep your finances in mind while providing you with top-of-the-line attention as you recover.
What’s more, BDIW operates on contingency. You do not have to worry about legal bills when working with our team. We never send you invoices and never ask you to make payments. If we don’t win your case, you will not be billed for our services. You can discuss our contingency policy in more detail during an initial case consultation with our team.
Evidence Defends Your Right to Catastrophic Injury Compensation
A catastrophic injury claim presented without evidence is unlikely to make it into a courtroom. If you want to defend your assertion of fault as well as your demand for damages, you need to present evidence elaborating on your right to legal action. This evidence should specifically outline what negligence led to your accident and what economic losses stand as a result.
The evidence you can bring forward to prove both liability and the value of your case can include:
- Statements from witnesses
- Blood spatter
- Damaged property
- Police statements
- Medical bills
- Bills related to property repair and replacement
- Video and/or photo footage of your accident
If evidence defending the claims you make isn’t available at the scene of your accident, don’t worry. There are instances in which a liable party may try to obscure their role in your accident or when evidence may move due to natural causes. Our team can track these inconsistencies and work with outside sources to better back the claims in your personal injury complaint.
