One of the biggest concerns people have after getting into a car wreck is how to get to another car so that they can get to work, take kids to school, and run basic errands. Under Oklahoma law, the insurance carrier for the at-fault driver is responsible for the costs to you for not having a car. Therefore, most insurance companies will agree to provide you with a rental car. We have helps tens of thousands of Oklahomans obtain rental cars after being involved in a car wreck. We work with the other insurance company in getting you into a rental car as quickly as possible. Often times the insurance company will offer you a rental car for a limtied amount of time while your car is being reparied. If it takes you longer to get your car repaired than expected, then we will work with the other insurance company in getting an extension. The same goes if your car was totalled and you are waiting on your property damage settlement in order to get a new car.

Ford is recalling 1.1 million pickup trucks due to a defect that may prevent the doors from opening or closing properly.
The recall affects F-150 trucks with model years between 2015 and 2017, as well as model-year 2017 Super Duty trucks. According to a Consumer Reports article on the recall, a faulty door latch or bent actuation cable may impair the proper opening or closing of the vehicles’ doors.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has received numerous complaints about the trucks’ doors failing to latch and opening while the vehicles were in motion. No injuries associated with the defect have yet been reported, but the flaw poses a severe risk to drivers and passengers should the doors unlatch and open while a vehicle is traveling.

In the days following an Oklahoma car wreck, you are almost certain to be contacted by the at-fault driver’s insurance company. While many of these representatives are pleasant when speaking with you, the fact that you are receiving phone calls from an insurance company you do not do business with asking about your car crash can be unnerving. For some car crash victims, they respond to this situation by hiring an attorney to represent them: once an attorney has been hired, any questions the insurance company may have are directed to the victim’s attorney.

Airbags are meant to prevent serious head and neck injuries from occurring in a car accident (or, at the very least, reduce the severity of these injuries). When a wreck occurs and your car’s airbags do not deploy as intended, you and your passengers may be seriously injured – or even killed. Pat Carr of the Tulsa car accident law firm of Carr & Carr indicates that drivers and/or passengers who are injured by a defective airbag may have a claim for compensation against the airbag manufacturer or automaker, depending on the specific facts of the injury crash. An experienced and knowledgeable car crash attorney will need to evaluate the circumstances surrounding the crash to determine if the injury victim may be able to obtain compensation through a personal injury claim.
