Oklahoma City Personal Injury Lawyers
Personal injury cases are cases in which someone is injured because of the negligence or abuse of another party that results in physical or psychological harm. As a victim in a personal injury case, you have the right to file suit against the negligent party in an effort to obtain monetary compensation for your injuries.
Suffering from the after effects of a personal injury is a daunting prospect. Not only must you deal with the physical pain and suffering, you must somehow account for lost wages and possible disability. Most people are unequipped to cope with their physical and emotional recuperation on top of filing a lawsuit.
For over 20 years, the people have turned to the attorneys at the Law Offices of Stipe & Belote to help establish and file their personal injury claim.
Why do you need a personal injury lawyer?
Causes of personal injury include:
During a trial the plaintiff must prove that the defendant acted in a negligent manner and that this behavior resulted in physical or psychological damage. It is important to document your injury with as much direct evidence as possible from the start. Take pictures of the accident location and write down any statements made by the defendant expressing or implying their guilt.
Sometimes the cause of an injury or illness may not be readily apparent. If you suffer from an industrial disease suffered in your work place, you may not even pinpoint the cause for months or even years later. It is imperative that you seek legal counsel as soon as you suspect that your injury was the result of negligence.
The attorneys at the Law Offices of Stipe & Belote operate on a contingency basis, which means that you do not pay us a fee until your case has been won or settled out of court. At that time we will be compensated at a percentage of the damages awarded to you.
