The State of Oklahoma Had a Pay-to-Play Law
Video Transcribed: If you’re the victim of a car wreck, can you still recover your damages even if you didn’t have any insurance? This is Christopher Stevens here certified paralegal with the Wirth Law Firm in Tulsa, Oklahoma, working in personal injury in Tulsa.
Now, today we’re going to be discussing whether or not you can still recover damages from a motor vehicle collision even if you didn’t have insurance.
Now, previously, the state of Oklahoma had what was called a pay-to-play law, and that if you didn’t have car insurance then you were pretty limited on the damages you’d collect. They were exclusive to economic damages, meaning only what your medical bills were, you couldn’t go for pain and suffering.
Now, this was changed in 2014 with an Oklahoma Supreme Court case of Montgomery v. Potter, where they ruled it is unconstitutional because you are creating a special class of litigants.
Now, as such, you can still recover your damages. If you need a personal injury attorney in Tulsa, Oklahoma in which you are seeking legal help concerning your accident, feel free to contact a Tulsa Personal Injury Attorney.
