Tulsa Personal Injury Lawyers
Accidents happen, and when they do, you want an experienced and compassionate personal injury attorney to fight for your rights. If you are injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.
Our legal team understands the financial, emotional, and physical burden that happens after a severe personal injury. While compensation for your injuries can’t erase the physical and emotional trauma of the accident, it can help pay your medical costs and daily expenses when you’re unable to work.
This can be a challenging time in your life, and you should not have to face it alone. If you are unable to negotiate a fair settlement with the at-fault party’s insurance company, you must file a personal injury lawsuit to recover damages.
In the state of Oklahoma, this lawsuit must be filed within two years of the date of the accident. This is called the statute of limitations. This is a law that puts a deadline on filing a lawsuit to recover compensation.
If you miss the filing deadline, then you lose your right to recover damages from the accident in court. This is true no matter how serious your injuries are or how clearly liable the defendant is. Your Tulsa injury lawyer will work with you to gather evidence and file the necessary paperwork to support your claim.
During your free consultation with an experienced attorney from McCutchen Napurano - The Law Firm, we explain your rights and review your case. We provide our Tulsa, Oklahoma personal injury clients with individualized attention. Call us today at (479) 783-0036 or use our online contact form to get your free consultation.
Do You Need a Tulsa Personal Injury Attorney?
If you are injured due to someone else’s negligence, you should at least speak with an attorney about your claim. In some instances, the at-fault party’s insurance company will send an insurance adjuster to ask questions about your claim and potentially offer you an early settlement.
The first settlement is likely not a fair settlement. Insurance adjusters are skilled negotiators and seek to protect the finances of their company.
It’s advisable not to speak with an adjuster without your attorney present since you may accidentally say something that causes them to deny or delay your claim. Insurance companies have experienced and skilled attorneys representing their interests. You should too.
After an accident that was not your fault, you want an attorney who has experience negotiating and litigating for the maximum compensation available in your situation. There are slight variations in case law that can make all the difference to the amount of damages you could recover. Our legal team has experience in the following areas:
- Brain Injuries
- Car Accidents
- Child Injuries
- Defective Products
- Gas/Oil Field Injuries
- Medical Malpractice
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Personal Injury
- Premises Liability
- Sexual Abuse
- Social Security
- Truck Accidents
- Workplace Accidents
- Wrongful Death
Accidents can result in many different types of injuries. You may experience physical, mental, emotional, and psychological injury following a traumatic event. These injuries can include:
- Heart attack
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Internal Injuries
- Kidney damage
- Broken bones
- Catastrophic injury
- Neck or back injury
- Nerve damage
- Spinal cord damage
- Psychological injury, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

What Type of Compensation Is Possible?
If you were injured by another person’s negligent actions, you may be eligible to recover compensation for your emotional, physical, or financial stress. Compensation, called “damages,” can include:
Medical expenses: All your medical bills related to the injury are considered medical expenses. This can include future and anticipated medical expenses. These damages help pay for your treatment expenses, such as physical therapy, medical specialists, and prescription medications.
Lost wages: If you missed work because of injuries you suffered due to another person’s negligence, you may be owed compensation for that time. In some circumstances, when your injuries preclude you from going back to work, you may be able to collect compensation for lost future wages and for help finding a new career.
Property damage: If your property was damaged during the accident, you may be eligible for financial compensation to repair or replace that property.
Wrongful death: Our legal team understands that no amount of money can take away the loss of a loved one. You may be eligible to recover damages that help pay for medical expenses and funeral costs.
Pain and suffering: The law allows victims of someone else’s negligent actions to be compensated for the pain and suffering associated with the injury.
