Oklahoma Personal Injury Overview

Personal injury law involves civil claims in which an individual is injured through the negligence, recklessness or intentional misconduct of another person, a company, or property owner. A personal injury lawsuit may arise from physical or emotional injuries. Personal injury law compensates individuals injured as a result of another's negligence or intentional misconduct. Personal injury laws vary from state to state. If you believe you have a personal injury claim, you should contact a personal injury lawyer in Oklahoma to evaluate your claim.

Oklahoma follows a system using the modified comparative negligence – 50% rule.  In states following a modified comparative fault – 50% rule, an injured party can only recover if it is determined that his or her fault in causing the injury is 49% or less, with the resulting damage award reduced by the injured party’s amount of fault.  If the injured party’s fault level reaches 50%, he or she cannot recover any damages resulting from the accident.  For example, if Debbie sued Dave for damages she suffered in a car accident involving their vehicles, and Debbie was 50% at fault, Debbie would not recover anything from Dave.  If, however, Debbie was 40% at fault, she could recover damages, but the damage award would be reduced by her portion of the fault in causing the injury.  Therefore, a finding that Debbie suffered $10,000 in damages would result in Debbie receiving an award reduced by 40%, or a final award of $6,000.

A statute of limitations is a type of law that restricts the period of time that a person may initiate legal proceedings.  Time limits can vary depending on the type of case and the state where the particular cause of action occurred. To learn more about statutes of limitations, read our Statute of Limitations page. To see a state by state comparison chart for the personal injury statute of limitations for each state, read our Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Actions page.

Oklahoma Statutes of Limitations

In Oklahoma, the courts follow a modified joint and several liability approach in entering judgment against multiple defendants.  A defendant found to be 51% or more negligent in causing the injury is jointly and severally liable, making that defendant subject to the entire judgment amount.  Defendants may also be subject to joint and several liability if it is determined that they acted in a willful and wanton manner or with reckless disregard in causing injury to the plaintiff.  A defendant less than 51% negligent will be responsible only for the portion of damages proportionate to his or her share of the negligence.
