Calling an Attorney After a Traffic Accident

January 23, 2017 6:07 pm

It is easy to feel alone and directionless after a car accident. After all, no one leaves home or work expecting to be involved in a crash caused by another driver. Yet, as statistics maintained by the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office show, this happens with surprising regularity: In 2015 alone, there were 645 fatalities resulting from 590 crashes. This means that every day during 2015 at least one person died in a fatal car wreck. Many more were injured to one degree or another in injury car accidents. Once a traffic injury or fatality occurs, the victim (and/or his or her family members) must not only begin the process of physically recovering from his or her injuries, but he or she must also decide whether to seek a legal recovery as well. While an attorney cannot do much to speed the physical recovery process along, as Michael Carr of the Oklahoma personal injury firm Carr & Carr, Attorneys at Law expounds, one call to an experienced attorney can make a difference in the victim’s legal recovery process.

Is Settlement Money Taxable?

December 1, 2016 12:09 pm

Many people wonder if the money they expect to receive from an insurance carrier is taxable.  Generally speaking, money received from a personal injury settlement is not taxable. According to the IRS, if you receive a settlement award based on a personal injury and did not make a deduction for your medical expenses related to your injury, the full amount is not taxable.  However, if you did take an itemized deduction for the medical expenses you paid in more than one year, you must include in income that portion of the settlement that is for medical expenses you deducted in prior years to the extent the deduction provided a tax benefit.
