Accident Guide in Oklahoma
Accidents happen to all of us. Most of the time, state or local law enforcement works motor vehicle accidents, and submits forms to the appropriate authorities.
But if you are involved in a wreck that law enforcement does not work, you're required to submit a report to the Department of Public Safety if injury, death, or property damage over $300 occurs as a result of the accident.
Oklahoma assesses penalties if you fail to report an accident. Your license could be suspended, so be sure to report the accident as soon as possible.
Check out the Oklahoma Driver's Manual for instructions on what to do in case of a collision to help avoid penalties.
In certain situations, such as accidents that involve personal injury or driving under the influence, you may feel confident seeking legal advice―and rightly so.
