If you are injured by someone else’s negligence, you may have a right to compensation. Often times, you only have a certain amount of time in which to file your claim. The insurance companies will have lawyers on their side and you need one too. Never settle a claim without speaking to an attorney first. Accidents, even simple car wrecks, can have long-lasting implications and must be treated seriously.

Nuts & Bolts
If you have been injured, you may be entitled to compensation. Personal injury law is constantly changing with each legislative session and speaking with an experienced attorney is the only way to get an up-to-date understanding of that you are in for.
If, for instance, you are injured by the negligence of a doctor or you are injured by a careless driver, the time to act is now. Time is often not on your side. We research every claim thoroughly and obtain any and all necessary medical records and we aggressively pursue a fair and equitable settlement.
The general time you have to file a claim in Oklahoma is 2 years but can vary based on the type of case.
Anatomy of a Car Wreck
After an accident that was not your fault, the police have made a report and you may or may not have been sent to the hospital via ambulance. It is not uncommon to experience pain and discomfort days or weeks after an accident. If this happens, you should seek medical treatment as soon as possible. If you have not thought about hiring an attorney, now is the time.
Dealing with insurance companies alone is a frustrating experience. They come and “appraise” your vehicle and may either declare it a total loss or request that you send it to one of “their” repair shops. Although most law firms don’t assist their clients is settling the property side of their claim, Bays Law Firm goes the extra mile to get you all the money we can on your car and to make sure your vehicle is repaired correctly.
Once you have set up your free consultation, we will begin researching your claim immediately and we will notify the insurance company that you have hired our firm to represent you and from now on they will be dealing directly with us. This will take much of the burden off of you.
We will come up with a treatment plan that works for you and work with your doctors to make sure that you are treated properly for all your injuries. We can also recommend some medical professionals that may be able to assist you.
Once you have recovered completely, we will send what is known as a “demand packet” to the insurance company which provides all of your medical records and bills and demands payment of a fair settlement.
At this point negotiations begin. Usually for minor injuries or what is known as “soft tissue injuries” cases can settle quickly. However, some cases do require trial.
Once a case is settled or a verdict for the plaintiff was rendered by a jury, you will get your check. As is always the case, there are many variables.
What we do is get you the most amount of money as soon as possible.
