We Don't Get Paid Unless You Do
No matter how obvious you may think the other party’s fault may be, the truth is that it is incredibly difficult to win a personal injury case without an advanced understanding of the law.
When you consider how much you stand to lose if the other party isn’t held responsible, it becomes clear that you can't afford not to hire a lawyer. Fortunately, all motor vehicle accident victims can afford to hire the Tawwater Law Firm. That’s because we handle cases on a contingency basis, meaning we do not get paid unless you do. You have absolutely nothing to lose by consulting our attorneys.
Types of Motor Vehicle Accidents
The type of motor vehicle accident is important when understanding liability and laws pertaining to the vehicles involved. For example, a car accident differs greatly from a truck accident, since the trucking industry is governed by strict state and federal laws. The type of accident will influence how our Oklahoma City attorneys approach your case. Types of motor vehicle accidents cases we handle include:
Whether your car accident was caused by the negligence of another driver, mechanical error, or another factor, these accidents can leave you with astronomical medical bills and a compromised ability to earn a living. You have a right to pursue fair compensation for your injuries and other losses caused by car accidents. Our Oklahoma City car accident lawyers can help with all aspects of your case so you can focus on healing.
Motorcycles are small and not always easy to see in traffic. When a motorcyclist is hit by a vehicle, the motorcyclist is more likely to sustain serious injuries or die because there is little to protect them from impact. Whether you are a motorcyclist who was injured due to negligence, or you were in an accident caused by a negligent motorcyclist, the attorneys at our Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, law firm can help.
Truck accidents involve vehicles like 18-wheelers, dump trucks, and cement trucks. Due to the size and weight of large commercial trucks, truck accidents can cause devastating injuries or even death. Commercial truck accidents can be complicated. At-fault parties can include the driver, the people responsible for loading the truck, the leasing company, or the manufacturer of the truck. Having a legal team like the Tawwater Law Firm can help you navigate the complexities of truck accidents and collect compensation from the responsible parties.
When an auto accident involving a bus or motor coach occurs, numerous injuries or fatalities can result. Auto accidents involving a bus or motor coach can be the result of mechanical issues, the action of the driver, or negligence on the part of the company that owns the bus. Our car accident attorneys can identify the responsible party and hold them accountable.
The massive size and weight of trains and the speed at which they travel can significantly increase the potential for injury and death when negligence results in an accident. As with commercial trucks, this type of vehicle operates under a strict set of state and federal guidelines, and in many cases, the company that owns the train is just one of many parties who could bear responsibility for an accident. The attorneys at our Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, law firm will tirelessly pursue the restitution you deserve.
Maritime accidents involve a range of watercraft including fishing boats, jet skis, and even cruise ships. Pursuing restitution requires a working knowledge of maritime law. Our attorneys can help represent you in cases involving watercrafts, and will conduct a thorough investigation to determine who is responsible for your losses.
Cyclists on the roadways are especially prone to serious injury in the event of an accident. Many drivers are careless, inattentive, or simply fail to watch out for bicycles. When a bicyclist is hit by a vehicle, there is virtually nothing to protect them from bodily harm. Recovering can require significant medical expenses and place an immense strain on your work and family life. Our Oklahoma City car accident lawyers can determine if you have grounds to file a personal injury case and can provide you with the aggressive legal representation you need.
Even low-speed auto accidents involving pedestrians can lead to catastrophic personal injury and death. According to the NHTSA, more than 5,300 pedestrians were killed in auto accidents in 2015. Car accident cases involving pedestrians often result from inattentive or distracted drivers who fail to yield to pedestrians or fail to follow proper driving laws. Whether these accidents cause serious injury or death, our attorneys can help victims and their loved ones achieve the justice they need and deserve.
Construction zones are dangerous both for workers and drivers. Sometimes, the construction zones can create road hazards that put drivers at an increased risk for car accidents. Distracted or unsafe drivers in construction zones can also increase the risk of auto accidents and injured workers. Victims of auto accidents in highway construction zones could be entitled to damages from one or more liable parties. Our team can help ease your burden and help you get compensation for your injuries and other losses.

Property damage is another significant loss resulting from virtually all motor vehicle accidents. That property may be your vehicle, your belongings inside the car, or even property like your house.

Frequently Asked Questions
The other driver is saying this is my fault, but I disagree. What should I do?
Do not speak to the other driver or their insurance company at all. They can easily twist your words to argue that you have admitted fault. Call an attorney as soon as you can, and refer anyone wishing to discuss your case to them. The police, insurance adjusters, and your attorney will investigate the accident, looking at facts and evidence such as the police report and the damage done to both vehicles or other property. They will also review statements from witnesses, medical reports, and other documentation to determine who is at fault. No amount of arguing or even civil discussion between you and the responsible party will be as beneficial as simply letting your attorney pursue the truth.
The insurance company offered what I think is a fair amount. Should I just accept the payment?
No. It is crucial that you speak with a car accident lawyer first. Our attorneys can evaluate your case to help determine if an offer is fair. The attorneys at Tawwater Law Firm will consult with doctors and other experts to make sure you don't settle for anything less than what you and your loved ones deserve.
How long will a case take to settle?
The length of time it takes to settle a case can range from a few months to a few years. Each case is different, and there are many factors that must be considered, such as the other party’s cooperation, having multiple responsible parties, and whether the case needs to go to trial. When you hire our firm, you can spend this time concentrating on your recovery rather than stressing about the case. You can take comfort in the fact that if we take your case, it's because we are confident we will win, and we will spend as long as it takes to achieve justice on your behalf.
