Car Collisions / Auto Accident Lawyers.
Oklahoma is an at-fault car accident state, meaning that the person who caused the accident is liable for all injury costs and damages, which will be paid through the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Insurance companies will often attempt to deny or reduce the insured driver’s liability for the accident in order to pay less, leaving victims struggling to cover their own injury costs.
Injured Children Auto Accident Lawyers
Unfortunately our most cherished and vulnerable population is normally the ones who suffer the most. Kids can be seriously injured in even the most minor of accidents. Injured children lawyers at Compton Law have an excellent reputation for representing injured children in Oklahoma. We know injured children law and we know what specific experts and consultants are unique to prosecuting these cases.
Pedestrian Accident Lawyers.
Drivers who aren’t paying attention often strike people in crosswalks, parking lots, or even on bicycles. These victims do not have the built-in protections of a car’s frame and airbags, and often suffer broken bones and concussions due to contact with car doors, windshields, and concrete surfaces.
DUI Crash Lawyers.
A driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol is less likely to brake before impact, making injuries much more severe. Victims hit by drunk drivers may suffer back and neck injuries, spinal damage, internal injuries, and severe brain trauma that can permanently alter behavior. The Oklahoma DUI car accident lawyers at Compton Law will aggressively and relentlessly fight to get you the maximum compensation available.
Fatality Car Accident Lawyers.
Losing a loved one in a car accident is a traumatic and painful experience. While no amount of money can make up for the loss of a family member, Oklahoma law allows relatives to file wrongful death claims against the driver who caused a fatal crash. Your family could recover damages to pay for medical and funeral expenses, as well as compensation for mental anguish and personal suffering.
Phantom Driver Accidents.
This is where another car causes the crash but can never be located or discovered. These cases can be some of the most difficult cases to prosecute. The Oklahoma car accident lawyers at Compton Law have experience in both prosecuting and defending against the cases and have the unique experience required to win these cases.
Semi Truck Accident Lawyers.
Did you know that one out of every eight automotive accident fatalities involve large trucks such as big rigs, tractor trailers and other commercial vehicles? Did you also know that four percent of all injuries sustained in motor vehicle crashes are caused by large trucks? When a commercial truck is involved in an accident, 86 percent of fatalities and 77 percent of those injured are the drivers and passengers of the smaller vehicles involved in the crash.
Although the number of accidents involving commercial trucks continues to rise, not much is being done to improve driving safety regulations. Given the large size of the trucks, the lengthy hours that drivers are on the road and the failure of some drivers to abide by speed limits in order to meet deadlines, it is no wonder that statistics show that every 16 minutes, a crash or collision occurs.
In the aftermath of an accident, victims can be left confused, scared and traumatized. Given the weight, mass, and size of the commercial truck and the speed at which most accident occur, truck wrecks normally end up leaving the injured party with catastrophic injuries. If you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident involving a semi, 18-wheeler or any other commercial vehicle, you have rights and help is immediately available to you. You need an aggressive truck accident lawyer to represent your interests following the accident and we are here to help. It is important that you contact us as soon as possible after the accident so we can perform an accident site inspection and investigation before the evidence is gone.
Construction Zone Accident Lawyers.
Road construction zones can be very dangerous places for motorists and construction workers alike. According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, many deaths occur in Oklahoma road construction zone accidents. Road construction crews deal with heavy equipment and treacherous working conditions on the job site as well as the heavy traffic passing by, sometimes just a few feet away. Motorists driving through construction zones face unfamiliar and sometimes confusing road configurations that can often be difficult to navigate.
Oklahoma has specific safety regulations that govern how construction zones should be set up, and strict laws have been passed in an effort to control speeding and reckless driving in construction zones. Still, injuries to workers and serious traffic accidents continue to happen with troubling regularity.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a road construction zone accident, the experienced personal injury attorneys at Compton Law Firm are ready to help. We represent victims across Oklahoma on all sides of these cases, including road construction workers, drivers, passengers, pedestrians and others.

If a distracted driver caused an accident that harmed you or someone you love, our law firm can help you secure the maximum compensation you deserve.
Distracted driving is one of the biggest safety threats on the road in Oklahoma and throughout the United States. This dangerous practice kills more than 15 people and injures over 1,200 people each day, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It’s no wonder that more than one out of three drivers say they feel less safe operating a vehicle now than they did five years ago. That’s partly because an alarming number of people are engaged in distracting behaviors behind the wheel when they should be focused on driving.
