    Get a personal injury attorney. The biggest mistake people make is trying to deal with an insurance company on their own. That's why there are attorneys.

    Your best course will always be to retain a personal injury attorney anywhere in Oklahoma. Do not attempt to handle a case on your own.

  • Can I file a claim with his insurance without them seeing that I am also insured by them? How should I handle this situation?

    I was in a car accident and was not at fault. I found out right after the accident that my car insurance has been cancelled the same day as the accident because one of my car payments bounced. I figured I would just file a claim with the at fault...

    Jimmy’s Answer

    It doesn't matter in Oklahoma if your insurance has been cancelled. It also does not matter in Oklahoma if you have (or did have) the same insurance as the at fault driver. Make a claim with the at fault driver's insurance. But I don't advise making the claim on your own. You need to contact an auto collision lawyer anywhere in Oklahoma for help.

  • If someone has 100000/300000/50000.and have a accident killing someone.what is the amount the family could receive from the ins.

    The man was killed while working for the state dept.on the side of the road by a driver that fell asleep.

    Jimmy’s Answer

    In addition to the applicable insurance available, there may be other avenues an Oklahoma personal injury attorney can take to get more money for any lawful claimants for the wrongful death of your loved one.
    Additional compensation available depends on the facts of the case, who was involved, was it a driver and a company he/she worked for, etc.
    You really need to call a personal injury attorney in Oklahoma and not try to handle anything on your own. Insurance companies and their lawyers/adjusters are ruthless and will take advantage of you regardless of the circumstances.

    Jimmy’s Answer

    Ambulance chasing is illegal.
    You can also file a Bar Complaint against the attorney with the Texas State Bar Association. You will find forms on their website.
