How To Get Recovery Compensation From A Distracted Driving Accident In Oklahoma

Texting, inattentive and otherwise distracted drivers are just as dangerous as drunk drivers on the road. Texting while driving, in particular, has been shown to reduce driver reaction times as much as driving while intoxicated with just over the legal blood alcohol content (BAC) limit of .08 percent. Drivers using cellphones and navigation devices while moving fare no better. Distracted drivers may even hit something or someone before they can even react. We hold them accountable for their negligence.

At Terrel B. DoRemus & Associates, we regularly pursue injury and damage claims on behalf of victims across Oklahoma. Located in Tulsa, attorney DoRemus has over 40 years of experience advocating for injury victims throughout the state and in surrounding states.

Distracted driving accidents cause serious injuries, but it is up to you to show negligence on the part of the other driver. The insurance company will provide little help in this area, but we will proactively advocate for you.

How Do You Prove A Driver Was Distracted In An Accident?

Attorney DoRemus knows several ways to show an inattentive or distracted driver was at fault. Our team will aggressively pursue the maximum compensation you deserve whether you were in another vehicle, a pedestrian, a cyclist or a passenger in the vehicle with the distracted driver.

In most cases, we perform the following due diligence as necessary:

  • We interview witnesses.
  • We gain access to the driver's cellphone, tablet or navigational device data.
  • We investigate the accident scene with an accident reconstruction expert.
  • We may be able to tell whether the driver was eating, reading or applying makeup while driving.
  • We may be able to determine the driver's reaction time to show evidence of distraction.

Maximizing The Value Of Your Case

It is important to get immediate medical attention whether you have health insurance or not. We can help you get the medical care you need. This is an important aspect to building your case for full and fair compensation.

We will work with medical and economic experts to establish the value of your claims for past, present and future damages, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Physical and mental pain and suffering
  • Physical impairment and disfigurement
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity

  • Wrongful death benefits if you have lost a loved one
