What Are Torts? The Essence of Personal Injury Law Explained

Torts are civil wrongs that unfairly cause another party harm, loss, or even wrongful death, and are grounds for initiating a lawsuit. Although torts may be criminal, this is not always the case. The harm inflicted might be due to negligence, but not necessarily criminal negligence.

Every tort claim has two basic components: liability and damages. Essentially, the courts will determine if the defendant is responsible for the harm inflicted on the plaintiff, and if so, what amount of money (extent of damages) is due as compensation for that harm.

Simply put, if you can prove the other party’s liability and the extent of damages, you will be compensated for your injury. Having a personal injury attorney on your side is the best way to establish this proof. Our Oklahoma City personal injury attorney office is here to help.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Case? The Statute of Limitations in the State of Oklahoma

Two Years for Most Injury Claims

In Oklahoma, you have two years to file a personal injury claim. You may have more time to file an injury claim if you discovered you were injured at some point after the initial accident or incident.

One Year for Intentional Injury

If you were injured as a result of intentional misconduct by another person or party, you have just one year to file a personal injury claim. This applies to civil actions related to assault and battery as well as defamation.

Possible Exceptions or Extensions

Extra time to file may be granted for minors or people with mental disabilities filing an injury case. Even in these circumstances, it's best to reach out to a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

Medical Malpractice

When a doctor, nurse, or surgeon makes a mistake, it can lead to debilitating injuries that put a patient's life at risk. Our attorneys have helped patients throughout Oklahoma hold hospitals and medical facilities accountable for negligence.

Nursing Home Abuse

When an elderly loved one is mistreated at an assisted-living facility, our lawyers can help. We can assist in getting your loved one out of harm's way and seek damages from the personnel or owners of a nursing home for their behavior.

Defective Products

We expect products on the shelves to be safe for consumers. When a defective vehicle or dangerous pharmaceutical harms people, our attorneys can make sure companies are held accountable for the harm that they have caused.

Accidents Involving Children Personal Injury Cases and Minors


Infants, toddlers, and small children can be especially susceptible to injury since they are still gaining their bearings and becoming familiar with the world around them. A lack of supervision, failure to maintain safe premises, and other instances of negligence can result in serious injuries requiring costly care.

Our Oklahoma City personal injury lawyers can seek damages to address the long-term repercussions of a catastrophic injury accident.

Accidents Can Have Lasting and Tragic Effects

A serious accident can result in catastrophic injuries. These kinds of injuries may result in lifelong disability, disfigurement, and substantial changes in your quality of life.

X-ray of TBI

Traumatic Brain Injuries

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can take different forms, including concussions, contusions, and severe injuries that penetrate the skull. These can happen from a steep fall or an auto accident.

Brain injuries should never be taken lightly since they can have lasting effects on a person's cognitive abilities, motor skills, and mental health.

Our injury lawyers can help those who've sustained a TBI seek damages for ongoing medical care as well as negative effects on quality of life and their ability to earn a living.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Injuries to the back, spine, and spinal cord can have serious effects on a person's health and mobility.

Some spinal cord injuries could result in paraplegia, which is the loss of sensation and use of the lower extremities. More severe injuries to the spine could result in quadriplegia, which is when use of both the arms and legs is lost.

Our attorneys can help spinal cord injury victims seek compensation to address changes to their life and livelihood as well as ongoing medial care for the rest of the person's life.

Wrongful Death

When a catastrophic accident results in fatal injuries, our lawyers can help you in a wrongful death claim.

Similar in principle to personal injury actions, a wrongful death lawsuit allows surviving family members to seek damages related to medical expenses prior to a loved one's death as well as damage to any property at the time of the accident.

Further compensation can be sought to address funeral expenses, grief counseling and therapy, and the pain and suffering associated with the loved one's passing.

What Happens During a Personal Injury Case?

The circumstances surrounding each personal injury case will be entirely unique, since no two cases follow exactly the same path. However, there are some common steps that most personal injury cases share:

Defendant Harms the Plaintiff

Virtually any injurious act committed by the defendant can be grounds for legal action, with the exception of contractual breaches. A separate body of law, known as contract law, handles contract disputes.

Breach of Legal Duty Determined

The victim, often working with a lawyer, will determine that their injury was the result of a breach of a specific legal duty. An example includes a medical professional not fulfilling their duty to provide care at reasonable levels of competence.

Settlement Talks

If it is clear to all parties involved that the defendant breached a legal duty, then the defendant (or the representing insurance company) may settle for compensation outside of court. Typically, the defendant will make a monetary offer to the injured party in exchange for a binding promise not to file a lawsuit over the injury.

Settlement or Decision to Go to Court

If the plaintiff and defendant agree to a settlement, the claim ends. If an agreement is not reached, the plaintiff may file a personal injury lawsuit and take the case to court. After a lawsuit is filed, settlement negotiations may continue. A settlement can be reached at any time before the civil case is handed over to a jury, who will determine the defendant’s liability.

Simply put, if you can prove the other party’s liability and the extent of damages, you will be compensated for your injury.
