On Tuesday, October 20th, Attorney Chad McLain of Graves McLain appeared via Skype on KTUL’s Good Day Tulsa program to discuss the circumstances under which you should consider reaching out to a personal injury lawyer. Watch the segment:


When you’ve been injured or suffered damages in an accident that was not your fault, you should contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. This is for a number of reasons. The first is that insurance companies are not on your side. Often, they will try to use any evidence they can find against you to avoid paying a fair amount for your claim. By speaking with an attorney prior to discussing your accident, you’ll have someone on your side to advocate for you and manage interactions with the insurance company.

The second reason is that medical issues can take time to develop after an accident. What may seem like a minor injury at the time of the accident can become something more serious as time goes on. An attorney will help ensure that you get the proper medical care and documentation you need to support your claim. Having those records and all applicable evidence will make proving your claim much easier.

Another reason to contact an attorney as quickly as possible is that there is a statute of limitations in place. Personal injury cases are considered civil cases in Oklahoma, and the statue of limitations for those types of cases is two years. If you do not bring a claim within that time period, you forfeit your ability to make a recovery.

Generally, time is of the essence with regard to personal injury cases. Don’t be intimidated by potential costs; most personal injury lawyers, including Graves McLain, work on a contingency basis, meaning they don’t get paid until they obtain damages for you.

  • My orthopedic doctor recommended Graves McLain Injury Lawyers, PLLC, to me following the need for revision hip surgery due to a hip from Stryker that was putting poison into my system. The doctor took care of the hip, and Graves McLain Injury Lawyers, PLLC, took care of the legal case. They were very thorough, professional, courteous, and always ready to answer the questions I had throughout the length of the case. In a word, the entire office is fantastic. I’m sure they were tired of my inquiries on the case’s progress, but they did not show it. They were always willing to respond and were very positive. If I ever have a claim in the future, they will be the first group to whom I reach out.
