Diligent attorneys thoroughly prepare for trial
We investigate the exact circumstances of your injury and the professional history of your health care provider and we consult expert witnesses in the same medical field to evaluate your claim. When negligence is found, we file a lawsuit within Oklahoma’s two-year statute of limitations. Although we do everything possible to reach a beneficial settlement, we do not hesitate to go to trial if necessary to obtain fair recoveries for our clients.
