Deadline for Filing Car Accident Claims

In many situations, you have up to two years in Oklahoma to make your legal claim, but there are also plenty of cases where the time limit is much shorter. But if a governmental entity is involved in the crash, the deadline to file a lawsuit can be shortened.

Here's an example. If an employee of a county hospital used a personal vehicle to deliver test results to a physician and, en route, caused an accident, this is important information for your case. However, it may not be immediately apparent to you. In this situation, the time limit to file a lawsuit could be only a year, so it's crucial to have time to investigate all aspects of your case, interview witnesses, and secure evidence.

Experienced legal counsel will advise you on the time limits, known as the statues of limitations, and start these processes right away so you don't miss opportunities that could impact your right to compensation.
