Cases We Take
McCutchen Napurano - The Law Firm represents Oklahoma clients in various personal injury cases, such as:
- Spinal cord injuries – An injury to the spinal cord occurs when there’s damage to the nerves and cells responsible for transmitting and receiving signals between the brain and the rest of the body. A direct blow to the spinal cord or damage to the vertebrae or tissue surrounding the spinal cord can cause this type of injury.
- Car accidents – Car accidents commonly lead to injuries and fatalities. Human error often plays a part in the cause of these collisions. In 2020, 8,609 crashes occurred in Oklahoma, resulting in 10,644 injuries and 654 deaths.
- Scarring – Permanent scars can form when severe injuries heal. Scarring is an unfortunate consequence of getting hurt in an accident. It can leave a person with discoloration of the skin, disfigurement, and lumps.
- Truck accidents – Commercial truck drivers operate large and heavy vehicles within the state and around the country. Navigating an 80,000-pound truck through traffic requires focus and skill. Inattention, distraction, or carelessness can lead to an accident, placing the occupants of other vehicles on the road at risk of serious injury.
- Defective products – Consumer products could contain defects that cause injuries. The inherent danger existing in the product increases the risk of injury while someone uses it. Defective products typically end up on the market when manufacturers make errors during the design, marketing, or manufacturing phase.
- Amputation injuries – An amputation injury is life-altering. Learning to complete basic tasks without a limb can be a long process. The at-fault party could be liable for causing your amputation injury in a car crash, medical malpractice, or another accident.
- Medical malpractice – When you go to the hospital or a doctor’s office, you expect to receive quality care. Unfortunately, some healthcare professionals can make mistakes that lead to injuries. If you suffered an injury or complication due to a doctor’s or other healthcare provider’s negligence, you could pursue compensation.
- Motorcycle accidents – A motorcyclist is at a greater risk of injury than the occupants of a car or truck during a collision. Since drivers have a tough time seeing motorcycles on the road, they can turn or switch lanes directly into the path of a rider.
- Premises liability – Homeowners and business owners are responsible for maintaining their properties. If a guest gets hurt because of the dangerous conditions on the property, the owner could become financially responsible for resulting medical costs and other losses.
- Bicycle accidents – Bicyclists typically have designated bike lanes to avoid sharing the road with motor vehicle drivers. However, if a driver drifts into the bicycle lane or fails to yield when necessary, they could collide with a bicyclist in their path.
- Broken bones – Some fractures are minor cracks, while others are complete breaks that separate the bone into two or more pieces. Broken bones commonly occur in car accidents and serious falls.
- Child injuries – Children are vulnerable to injuries. They encounter many hazards without realizing the dangers. Whether a defective product, car crash, or another incident resulted in your child’s injury or death, you have a right to pursue legal action against the negligent party.
- Wrongful death – As a surviving family member, you could recover compensation if your loved one died in an accident someone else caused. The personal representative of the estate can file a wrongful death lawsuit to compensate for the surviving relatives’ burial costs, mental pain and anguish, and additional losses.
- Oil and gas field accidents – Oil and gas fields are inherently dangerous environments. As an employee suffering from an on-the-job injury or illness, you are entitled to benefits through your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance.
- Brain injuries – An injury to the brain can damage brain cells, nerves, and other structures. The damage can interfere with normal functioning and cause mental or physical impairments. Some people recover fully, while others become disabled due to permanent damage.
- Workplace accidents – You might be able to file a workers’ compensation claim for medical care and other benefits following a workplace accident. As long as your injury or illness happened while you were performing your job-related duties, you should qualify for coverage.
If you were involved in any of the situations above and sustained an injury, you should contact McCutchen Napurano - The Law Firm to speak with one of our personal injury lawyers in Oklahoma. We can review the circumstances of the incident to determine whether you’re entitled to compensation.
Compensation for Injuries in an Oklahoma Accident
You can pursue compensation to cover various losses suffered in the accident, including:
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Permanent scarring or disfigurement
Punitive damages are also available if you file a lawsuit against the negligent party responsible for causing the accident. State law requires you to provide clear and convincing evidence to show the defendant’s actions were intentional and malicious towards others.
Limitations on Personal Injury Lawsuits
Oklahoma has a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury cases. That means you must file your lawsuit within two years of the date of your injury or the death of your loved one due to someone else’s negligent actions. If you don’t initiate your lawsuit within the required timeframe, you could lose your right to recover compensation from the at-fault party in court.
If you suffered an injury or lost a family member in an accident another person or company caused, do not hesitate to contact McCutchen Napurano - The Law Firm. One of our Oklahoma personal injury lawyers can discuss your case with you during a free consultation and advise you of the available legal options.
