Being in a serious accident can be a daunting experience. Whether you’re recovering from a car crash, an incident at work, or a slip and fall injury, you may inundated with medical bills. Serious injuries often require missing work, so you may be contending with lost wages. Between the mounting bills and lost income, you might be wondering how you are going to make ends meet. If you suffered damages in an accident, and someone else was legally responsible, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit. These claims provide victims of negligence with important financial recourse and the tools to recover.
What Is Personal Injury?
The term personal injury refers to a legal situation that may arise when one person sustains injury in an accident, and another person is legally liable for that injury. Personal injury cases may follow one of two paths:
- A person or private entity (the plaintiff) files a formal lawsuit against another individual, entity, company, or organization (the defendant). These lawsuits allege that the defendant’s careless actions led to injury and damages (from medical bills, lost wages, pain, or suffering). In some cases, these lawsuits go to court.
- It’s far more likely that both parties reach a settlement before a case makes it to trial. A personal injury settlement usually involves several parties – the defendant and the plaintiff, their insurers, and their attorneys. In these meetings, the two sides negotiate until they reach a settlement both sides find agreeable. They specify this agreement in writing and agree to forego further legal action in exchange for the settlement.
Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney
With a population of over 400,000 and nearly 1,000,000 in the metropolitan area, accidents and injuries are an unfortunate but inevitable part of life in Tulsa. This is not only true in the more densely packed areas like downtown Tulsa and Midtown, but throughout the entire 196.0 square miles that the city covers.
After an accident, a personal injury attorney can help protect your best interests and negotiate fair compensation for your injuries. With the help of the right legal representation, you can hold the parties responsible for your injuries accountable for their actions. Many of our clients approach us because they feel trapped in an impossible predicament – they may have lots of unpaid bills, may be unable to return to work, and face an uncertain future. We work with our clients to restore hope and get the financial resources they need to get their life back on track.
Good medical care is expensive. A trip to the emergency department can easily total thousands of dollars, not to mention the cost of ongoing therapy. A personal injury attorney can help you recoup these expenses.
Insurance companies are notorious for treating accident victims unfairly. They routinely deny, delay and defend claims in an effort to pay out as little as possible – and sometimes avoid paying anything at all. Hiring a personal injury attorney signals to the insurance companies that you are serious about your claim. Having the right lawyer can go a long way into maximizing your recovery and ease the burden of dealing with insurance claims all together. With Bryan & Terrill on your side, you can focus on recuperating from your injuries while we deal with the insurance companies.

Oklahoma Personal Injury Statute of Limitations
If you have been seriously injured in an accident, it is important to understand how Oklahoma law may affect your case. According to Oklahoma code for civil procedure, you have two years from the date of the incident that caused your injury to file a lawsuit against the responsible party. This two year window makes it extremely important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. If you wait until the deadline it may be too late.
Can I Afford a Personal Injury Attorney?
One of the biggest caveats we hear in our business is, “I’d like legal help… but I can’t afford it.” We like to say that you can’t afford not to have a personal injury attorney. At Bryan & Terrill Law, we offer our legal services on a contingency-fee basis. This means we only charge for our services if we win a settlement on your behalf.
We also provide a free initial consultation to all our clients. This gives us an opportunity to hear your story and provide you with some free legal advice. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in Tulsa or anywhere else in Oklahoma, contact us today.
Client TestimonialsView More Testimonials
I never thought I could completely trust a lawyer. Mr. Bryan and Mr. Terrill made me feel 100 percent confident in their judgment and ability to represent me as their client. I could depend on them to be completely honest with me. I never felt like I was being strung along or manipulated. They had so much compassion towards me and my case. Everything that they did was to help me resolve all of my concerns.
Their education alone is impressive, but the type of men they are is what makes their practice so unique. I was always fearful of hiring a lawyer because they are stereotyped to be self-involved money grubbing vipers that worry more about billable hours than their client. These two men couldn’t be further from that. They are kind, intelligent, well spoken and honorable. They will be vigilant in making sure that their client’s cases are fought with every resource available, research all past cases to see what applies to yours and consult experts for testimony.
After being discriminated against it is hard to trust anyone again, but put your faith in Bryan & Terrill. You won’t be disappointed.Qamar Herd
In a low point in my life, and truly not knowing what attorney could possibly help me, I can honestly and whole heartedly say that I praise God that this great duo was there for me to turn to in helping me with my civil case, and making at least some sense of all of the nonsense.
What sets this duo aside from all the others? They’re fair and honest, and actually aren’t out for themselves to nickel and dime you to death, and squeeze all the money they can out of you for nothing.
What sets the bar even higher is that they are truly professional and always kind. If ever one of my loved ones or friends, or I, God forbid, need a civil attorney, these are your men!Susan Chambers
I highly recommend! Extremely professional and respectful in all aspects of your representation. Sincerely take the time to understand your unique situation and make your concerns a priority during the process. Top notch!Jeremy Brimm
