A total of 50 Grady County car crashes in 2014 resulted in severe, “incapacitating” injuries, and tragically, 13 of the accidents proved fatal.

How Much Compensation Can You Get for a Car Accident in Blanchard, Oklahoma?
Under Oklahoma insurance laws, all motorists are required to carry, at minimum, the following liability insurance coverages:
- $25,000 for personal injury or wrongful death, per person.
- $50,000 for personal injury or wrongful death, per accident.
- $25,000 for property damage resulting from an auto accident.
The purpose of liability insurance is to cover the other driver’s expenses after an accident for which the policyholder is at fault. Depending on what sort of auto insurance you carry, you may also be able to receive compensation through your own insurance company by making a PIP claim (Personal Injury Protection). If the driver who hit you does not have any or adequate insurance, or if you were the victim of a hit-and-run accident, UM/UIM (Uninsured Motorist/Underinsured Motorist) coverage can also provide benefits. Our attorneys will carefully review your insurance policy and the circumstances of the accident to determine a strategy that best serves your interests as an injury victim in Grady County.
In some cases, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will refuse to settle. If this occurs, our aggressive car accident attorneys will prepare to bring your case to court. In Oklahoma, personal injury victims are limited to receiving $350,000 in compensation for pain and suffering, called “non-economic damages.” Financial or “economic” damages, such as medical bills, are not subject to caps or limits. In addition to pain and suffering and your current and projected income losses, compensation for current and projected medical bills such as hospitalization, physical therapy, and surgery may be recoverable.
