Distracted Driving Accident Settlements: How Much Is My Claim Worth?

Oklahoma law allows injured victims to seek compensation for the damages they incur due to a distracted driving accident. The law classifies these damages as economic, non-economic, and punitive. The compensation may depend on several factors, such as the cost of your medical care, the severity of your injuries, and the negligent party’s insurance coverage. Below is an overview of each type of damage.

Economic Damages 

Economic damages are losses with a calculable monetary value, such as medical bills, lost income, and property damage. Medical bills may include emergency room costs, hospital stays, medications, physical therapy, and doctor visits. Lost income accounts for a loss of income while you recover and your future diminished earning capacity. The law may entitle you to property damage costs for repairing or replacing your vehicle and other damaged personal belongings.

Calculating current economic damages is typically straightforward. Insurance companies, however, may attempt to undervalue your future damages, as these can be more complex to determine. When needed, we partner with economic, vocational, and medical experts to get a clear picture of all your monetary damages. The law generally allows you one opportunity to pursue a settlement. We work hard to ensure that you receive adequate compensation. 

Non-economic Damages

Non-economic damages refer to subjective losses without concrete monetary value, such as physical pain, emotional suffering, and a loss of quality of life. Your claim may also include loss of consortium, a type of damage available for spouses of injured victims. This damage compensates spouses for the physical and emotional implications they experience due to the victim’s injury. 

Non-economic damages are typically more difficult to assess and require a knowledgeable attorney who understands the accident’s full scope and how it has affected the victim’s life. Our attorneys evaluate these intangible losses and pursue the full and rightful compensation you deserve

Punitive Damages 

Punitive damages punish reckless behavior and deter others from similar conduct. In distracted driving cases, these damages may be applicable if the court deems the distracted driver engaged in wanton and willful misconduct. In such cases, the court may award punitive damages to the victim in addition to their economic and non-economic damages.

An Overview of Distracted Driving Accidents 

Distracted driving is any activity that diverts a driver’s attention away from driving. These distractions can be visual (taking eyes off the road), manual (taking hands off the wheel), and cognitive (taking the mind off driving).

Common forms of distracted driving can include: 

  • Texting or talking on a mobile phone.
  • Eating and drinking.
  • Talking to passengers.
  • Adjusting the GPS or stereo.
  • Applying makeup.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration  considers texting the most dangerous type of distracted driving as it entails all three forms of distraction. This behavior still occurs despite most states’ laws making distracted driving illegal. It’s a nationwide problem, and Oklahoma is no exception. 

Tulsa Distracted Driving Accident Statistics

According to the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office, in a recent year, 1,243 distracted driving accidents occurred throughout the state.

For that same year, statistics just for the city of Tulsa include:

  • 182 distracted driving accidents within the city limits.
  • 26 accidents involved a driver between 16 and 19.
  • 21 accidents involved a driver ages 65 and older. 
  • 230 individuals sustained injuries, and four people lost their lives.
  • Most distracted driving accidents occur Monday through Friday from noon to 6 p.m. 

Distracted driving victims are more than a statistic. We know our clients experience physical pain, emotional suffering, and financial losses that can negatively influence the rest of their lives. Sadly, distracted driving accidents are preventable.

Distracted Driving Injury Claims: An Overview 

Oklahoma has implemented several laws to combat distracted driving. Oklahoma Statutes make it illegal for drivers to manually compose, send, or read an electronic text message while the motor vehicle is in motion. Despite this legislation, some Tulsa drivers still engage in activities that take their attention away from the road. 

After a distracted driving accident, it’s essential to know your legal rights and the kind of compensation the law may entitle you to. You may have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. This legal action enables you to pursue financial compensation for the injuries and losses you suffered due to the accident.

Oklahoma law limits how long you have to pursue a distracted driving accident settlement. That’s why contacting an attorney right after an accident is in your best interest.

At Aizenman Law Group, we start your claim by identifying the party or parties responsible for your accident. When a distracted driver acts negligently and causes an accident, the law may hold them accountable for your injuries and other damages.

But our law firm’s resources allow us to build a strong claim on your behalf while pursuing maximum compensation, even when the insurance company pushes back. 

We continue building your case by investigating the accident’s circumstances and gathering vital evidence, including the accident report, witness testimony, medical records, and receipts for any out-of-pocket expenses you’ve already paid. We then work closely with medical professionals to understand your future prognosis and fully calculate your damages.

Our attorneys and legal staff keep track of court dates, gather evidence, and ensure we meet court deadlines. We take over the legal aspects of your claim, so you can recover.

Aizenman Law Group Fights Back Against Insurance Claim Denials

Individuals who attempt to negotiate with the insurance company on their own risk losing their legal rights and a fair settlement in the challenging and overwhelming legal landscape of an injury claim.

Insurance companies may deny your distracted driving injury claim for various reasons. They may argue that your injuries are not as severe, that the other party was not at fault, or that the policy does not fully cover your damages.

Our attorneys anticipate and counter these tactics, pursuing justice for accident victims. Aizenman Law Group has extensive experience handling distracted driving accident cases. We can identify and prove distraction, even when it’s not immediately apparent.

Preserve Your Legal Rights: What to Do After a Distracted Driving Accident

Taking the right steps after an accident can help ensure you have the best chance of receiving full compensation for your losses. Even after you seek emergency medical treatment, you can take action to help our attorneys build the strongest case possible.

Hire an Attorney

It’s never too early to contact an attorney who handles distracted driving accident claims, as many forms of evidence can fade or deteriorate over time. Hire us to represent you and start on your case right away. We can also handle communications with your insurance company.

Follow Your Medical Treatment Plan 

Depending on the severity of your injuries, your treatment plan may include physical therapy, surgeries, or medications. Deviating from your doctor’s recommendations or delaying treatments may weaken your position in claiming compensation. The insurance company may reduce or even deny your claim.

Following your doctor’s advice can also help you on the path to physical and emotional recovery. Our attorneys can use your medical records, including doctors’ reports, to support your legal claim.

Obtain a Copy of the Accident Report

The police report is the official record of the accident. This document contains important information we will need, such as the date and time of the accident and the other parties involved. You can obtain a copy of the police report from the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety
