The Anatomy of Pedestrian Accidents
When a Casual Stroll Becomes a Catastrophe
Pedestrian accidents transpire when an individual walking is hit by a vehicle, leading to injury or even fatality. In Oklahoma, various factors contribute to pedestrian accidents, such as driver carelessness, poor visibility, insufficient traffic signals, or inadequately designed crosswalks. Victims of pedestrian accidents often endure severe injuries and face substantial financial challenges due to medical costs and lost earnings.
At Elton Jenkins Law, P.L.L.C., we recognize the overwhelming consequences of pedestrian accidents and dedicate ourselves to assisting you in obtaining justice and financial compensation for your injuries.
Fault Determination in Pedestrian Accidents
Uncovering Liability and Pursuing Financial Recovery
In personal injury cases like pedestrian accidents, Oklahoma follows a fault-based system. To successfully secure compensation, you must demonstrate that the driver or another party acted negligently and caused your injuries. Instances of driver negligence can involve speeding, distracted driving, failure to yield, or driving while impaired.
Occasionally, other entities may share liability, such as a municipality for poorly designed intersections or an automobile manufacturer for malfunctioning components. Our proficient attorneys at Elton Jenkins Law, P.L.L.C. will meticulously investigate your accident and pinpoint all potential compensation sources.
Grasping Comparative Negligence
How Your Conduct May Impact Your Financial Recovery
Oklahoma's comparative negligence law stipulates that if you, as the pedestrian, are deemed partially responsible for the accident, your compensation may be diminished according to your percentage of fault. For instance, if you are considered 30% at fault, your compensation will be reduced by 30%.
At Elton Jenkins Law, P.L.L.C., we strive to minimize your fault percentage and maximize your financial recovery, guaranteeing you obtain the compensation you rightly deserve.
Tackling Insurance Claims and Settlements
Obtaining Equitable Compensation for Your Injuries
Addressing insurance companies following a pedestrian accident can be daunting and distressing. Insurance adjusters may attempt to downplay your claim, pressure you into accepting a hasty settlement, or reject your claim outright. Engaging a knowledgeable attorney can make a significant difference.
Our team at Elton Jenkins Law, P.L.L.C. will manage communications with insurance companies, enabling you to concentrate on your recovery. We will confirm that any settlement proposals are fair and reasonable, ensuring you receive the rightful compensation for your injuries and losses.
