Accomplished Tulsa Personal Injury Lawyers Assist Negligence Victims
Knowledgeable Oklahoma attorneys handle accident claims for plaintiffs
If you or someone you love has been hurt because of another person's negligence, recklessness or wrongful conduct, you should not have to bear the costs of your recovery. At The Barkett Law Firm in Tulsa, we litigate personal injury claims to obtain maximum compensation for victims. Under Oklahoma law, plaintiffs can recover for economic damages, such as medical expenses, property damage, and lost wages, as well as up to $350,000 in noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and mental anguish. Whether you’ve been hurt in a vehicle accident, due to unsafe conditions on someone’s property, or as a result of medical malpractice, we will assert your rights effectively in pursuit of a substantial verdict or settlement. There’s no risk because our firm offers a free initial consultation and does not collect legal fees until you obtain a financial recovery.
Law firm delivers comprehensive support for people hurt in car crashes
After a car accident, you are likely to feel overwhelmed by the physical, financial and legal consequences. Our firm guides drivers, passengers and pedestrians in cases arising from:
- Car accidents — State law permits people hurt in car crashes to file a claim with either their own insurer or the carrier who is at fault for the accident. You can also initiate a lawsuit. We will help you decide which option works best in your case.
- Truck collisions — Our lawyers review whether regulations governing commercial vehicles were violated in accidents involving large trucks. From there, we seek relief from all potentially liable parties.
- Motorcycle crashes — We represent motorcycle riders who have been struck by larger vehicles. In many cases, these crashes occur because car and truck drivers fail to honor the laws that protect riders.
In Oklahoma, most personal injury lawsuits must be filed within two years of the incident. However, if you are bringing a claim against the government, you must notify that entity within 90 days. For any matter, prompt action makes it easier to preserve evidence and witness contacts, giving you the best chance at a favorable result.
Proven advocates help individuals who have suffered slip and fall injuries
Property owners and others who are responsible for maintaining safe premises are required to prevent hazardous conditions on their property. People who fall due to slippery floors, uneven surfaces or other examples of property negligence can recover compensation in a premises liability action. We advise slip and fall victims of their rights and pursue damages, which are available even if you are partly responsible for the incident as long as the defendant bears a majority of the fault.
Attorneys pursue compensation for victims of dog bites
Oklahoma applies a strict liability standard to cases where people have been attacked by dogs or other pets. This means that an owner is liable for harm caused by their animal even if the person was unaware of their pet’s dangerous tendencies. If you have been injured by a dog bite or some other sort of incident involving someone else’s pet, our firm will pursue justice on your behalf.
Products liability lawyers work to hold negligent manufacturers accountable
Unsafe products can cause serious injuries or even death to unsuspecting users. In these situations, our firm files products liability lawsuits so that careless designers, manufacturers and sellers are held to account for their failure to take proper safety measures. Don’t be intimidated by taking on a large company or insurance carrier. No matter the opponent, we will press for an appropriate resolution.
Skillful advisers help patients harmed by medical malpractice
Litigating medical malpractice claims successfully requires an attorney who can obtain the necessary evidence about professional standards and present complex issues in a clear, authoritative manner. We have the resources and experience to take action against negligent doctors and other healthcare providers. Even if you are not sure about the details of your treatment, our firm can conduct an exhaustive review to determine whether standards of care were violated.
