When you have suffered a traumatic event, you are probably not thinking about filing a lawsuit. You just want to get through the pain, heal from your wounds, and move on with your life—all of which will take an incredible amount of time, energy, and money.
As the weeks go by, the stress you are enduring gets worse. You can’t return to work, you can’t pay your medical bills, and you may be caring for someone who is still injured—and without a payout from your insurance company, you have little hope of ever getting back in control of your life. The only way out of your situation is to find someone can fight on your behalf…someone who is willing to go the distance to get what you are owed.

Our Oklahoma Injury Attorneys Have the Answers You Need to Move On
The Compton Law Firm was created to provide injury victims with a legal resource during the most troubling times of their lives. We understand the pain you are going through, so we always listen carefully to the details of your accident before explaining your legal rights and possible options to move forward. We are fully staffed, so that you are always able to speak to someone about your case, and we keep victims informed as their cases progress, so the client is never kept in the dark. If you have been injured, simply fill out our quick online contact form to speak with one of our attorneys about your case.
We help victims who are suffering from many different kinds of physical and emotional injuries, including:
- Auto Accidents. Many people try to avoid legal battles after a car accident, but realize they are at a disadvantage when they speak to an insurance adjuster. From the moment your accident occurred, you entered into a battle with the insurance company—and the adjusters know all the ways to deny you the payment you deserve. Our attorneys can get you the compensation you need after a car accident, pedestrian accident or DUI crash in Oklahoma, including the funds you need to pay your medical bills and expenses for time off work.
- Truck Accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck wreck, it is vital to have the incident investigated as soon as possible. Trucking companies will work fast to protect their own interests, and you will need a trial law firm with experience in complex litigation. We know how to confront companies and owners who are at fault for Oklahoma oil and gas truck accidents, 18-wheeler accidents, dump truck crashes, commercial truck crashes, municipal vehicle accidents, as well as collisions with UPS, FedEx, and other delivery vehicles.
- Medical Malpractice. An accident in the hospital can have catastrophic results. Surgery errors, anesthesia mistakes, birth injuries, and medication errors are just a few ways patients can suffer injuries and even death at a time when they are most vulnerable. Our attorneys can investigate what happened during your visit, getting you compensated for your emergency rooms charges, X-rays, physical therapy, emotional distress, pain and suffering, scars, and more.
- Injuries to Children. There is no greater suffering for a parent than when his or her child is injured. No matter how much parents try to protect their children from danger, kids are at constant risk of harm by others, including bicycle accidents, being struck by cars, day care injuries, dog bites, and injuries and deaths due to pools and unsafe premises. When we fight for your child’s rights, we can identify the person responsible for your family’s suffering and get you compensation for any permanent injuries.
- Wrongful Death. There is no amount of money that can restore the loss of a loved one. If someone you love has been killed due to a medication or hospital error, serious fall, nursing home abuse, birth injury, vehicle accident, malfunctioning product, or accident in the oil and gas industry, our attorneys will seek justice from the person or company responsible. Not only can we get you compensation for your past medical and funeral costs, we can ensure that the accident doesn't happen to someone else.
- Family Law. We know how important it is for families to be able to rebuild after devastating events. Our attorneys can advise family members during divorce proceedings to settle child support, spousal support, alimony, and custody matters with a minimum of disruption. We also provide estate planning services to create wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and help families move through probate after the death of a loved one.
