Unsure of what caused your accident? You still have options.

A car accident could leave you with both physical injury and financial damage, yet you may be unsure of the steps you should take in the immediate aftermath. It can be both overwhelming and frustrating to know that you suffered because of the reckless and negligent actions of another person, but you do not have to walk through this complicated situation alone.

Many Oklahoma car accident victims fail to move forward with a civil claim because the prospect of a complicated legal process daunts them or they are unsure that they have a case. It is okay to be uncertain of your options, but you would be wise to find out if you have grounds to seek financial compensation.

Who is to blame?

Maybe your accident happened so fast that you are uncertain what factors may have played a role, or maybe you believe that it could be at least partially your fault. To determine what caused your accident, it can be useful to understand the four types of fault, as generally defined by common law:

  • Negligence
  • Intentional recklessness
  • Reckless behavior or disregard for the law
  • Strict liability

Negligence generally refers to behaviors that are not intentionally harmful, but still dangerous all the same, such as driving through an intersection due to fatigue or inattention. Reckless refers to the preventable, blatant things that drivers may do that could cause harm to innocent motorists, such as texting, aggressive driving and more.

Strict liability would only be a factor in your case in the rare circumstance that there is no easily identified person or party who is liable for the accident and any related pain and suffering. This could apply to you if factors beyond your control, such as auto part defects or extremely hazardous road conditions, played a role in the accident that left you injured.

The options available to you

There is only one way to know what options may be available to you after a car accident. Through a complete case evaluation, you can better understand if you have grounds to move forward with a claim, and if you do, determine the most appropriate manner in which to do it.

Car accident cases are complicated, especially when there are questions regarding fault and liability. Do not wade through these issues alone, but, rather, take steps to secure the legal guidance needed in order to effectively fight for the full and fair recovery you deserve.
