Edmond Personal Injury Lawyers OK

105 years of combined experience fighting for accident victims and families

Whether you’re just enjoying the local residential communities, driving your children to the numerous public schools, going to work for Crest Foods or other businesses, doing construction work, shopping, or anything else in Edmond – there’s always the risk that an accident can change your life. Drivers, property owners, and oil field companies across Oklahoma have a duty to ensure that they use proper caution to ensure accidents don’t happen. Car accidents, slips and falls, explosions, and other accidents often require long-term medical care and cause a lifetime of pain.

At Cunningham & Mears, our Edmond trial attorneys file personal injury claims and wrongful death claims to hold individuals and companies liable for the injuries and deaths they cause. We demand compensation for all your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and property damage.

We have obtained numerous settlements and verdicts worth more than one million dollars, and many others worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. Some of these results include:

  • A $3+ million confidential product liability settlement on behalf of a burn injury client. A young girl suffered burns over 95% of her body due to a hot water tank that was improperly installed and a defective gas can. Gasoline accidentally spilled on a garage floor, which leaked near the hot water tank. The gas ignited and burned the little girl severely. She required more than 30 surgeries.
  • $1.3 million for a motorcyclist who was struck head-on by an oncoming motorist.
  • $1.65 million for a grandmother who was hit by a tractor-trailer. She sustained multiple broken bones, including a broken pelvis.

How can we help?

What types of personal injury cases do your Edmonton lawyers handle?

Cunningham & Mears has been fighting for injury victims in and near  Edmond, OK since 1996.  We handle the toughest injury cases stemming from acts of negligence, such as:

Car, truck, motorcycle, and other vehicle accidents

We work with investigators, conduct extensive discovery, speak with the police, and employ traffic reconstruction experts, when necessary, in the following types of vehicle crashes:

  • Car accidents. We represent anyone who is injured by a driver who speeds, drives while distracted, drives while drunk, or negligently causes any type of accident in Edmond.
  • Trucking accidents. Our lawyers are skilled at showing why truck drivers and trucking companies failed to protect you, and why they should compensate you for your injuries, lost income, and pain and suffering.
  • Motorcycle accidents. Our Edmond personal injury lawyers represent motorcycle drivers, passengers, and the families of anyone who is killed in a motorcycle accident. Many motorcycle accidents cause catastrophic injuries or deaths because motorcycles provide virtually no protection if an accident happens.
  • Pedestrian injuries. Many pedestrian accidents are fatal. Most survivors suffer permanent harm. We fight aggressively for walkers who are struck by any vehicle. We are strong advocates for families when a motor vehicle kills a pedestrian in Edmond.
  • Bicycle accidents. Our Edmond personal injury lawyers file claims when a motorist fails to see or respect the rights of bicycle riders.

Dangerous properties, job sites, and products

For-profit and even non-profit companies can be held liable when they place their profits ahead of your safety. Our Edmond personal injury lawyers handle the following types of accidents:

  • Premises liability accidents. The owners of businesses owe a duty to the people who legitimately use their business, such as customers, clients, or visitors, to regularly inspect their property for possible defects. Owners should be held liable if they fail to make timely repairs or warn you of dangers. We represent folks who have suffered serious injuries in slip and falls, from dog bites, and because of inadequate security measures.
  • Construction accidents. The owners of construction sites must comply with local building requirements and industry standards. Road and building construction crews should be held liable if they fail to protect drivers, pedestrians, and the contractors who work for them. Our team handles third-party claims on behalf of injury victims.
  • Product liability claims. Manufacturers can be held strictly liable if the products they make and sell are defective due to faulty design, workmanship, instructions, or a lack of warnings. We hold manufacturers responsible when they fail to protect the public.
  • Oil field accidents. Oil and gas extraction work is extremely dangerous. The owners of oil field sites need to protect their workers. When they fail to follow industry safety standards and federal guidelines, they deserve to be held accountable for explosions, fires, and other oil field accidents.

When negligence leads to fatalities

Fatal accidents are the most difficult injury cases we handle because no amount of compensation can ever replace your loved one. Our team can file a wrongful death claim on your behalf. We hold drivers, businesses, and anyone whose negligence or fault caused the death of your loved one accountable. We help families obtain the compensation they deserve when a loved one is no longer able to love, provide for, and guide family members.

How do you prove someone is liable for my injuries?

Our team works with different professionals, through the questioning of anyone with information about how the accident happened, by examining crucial documents and evidence, and in other ways to show the defendants are liable. The precise steps we take differ depending on the type of Edmond accident that happened.

Cunningham & Mears is skilled at:

  • Identifying the proper defendants.
  • Showing that the defendants owed you or a loved one a duty of care – such as not driving while intoxicated, and by complying with state and federal regulations.
  • Showing that the defendants breached their duty by speeding, failing to follow common safety procedures, or in other ways.
  • Explaining why the breach of care by the defendants caused your injuries or the death of a loved one.
  • Identifying all your financial and personal losses.

Our Edmond personal injury attorneys have earned the respect of former clients, insurance carriers, and defense lawyers for our preparation, attention to detail, persuasiveness, and track record of success.

How much is my Edmond personal injury case worth?

We demand compensation for all your current and future damages – even if you need help for the rest of your life. Our lawyers negotiate settlements and work to obtain verdicts to compensate you for all your:

  • Medical expenses including ER care, surgeries, rehabilitative care, doctor visits, and other medical costs
  • Loss of income and benefits
  • Daily physical pain and emotional suffering
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Loss of bodily function
  • Loss of consortium

We may seek punitive damages if the defendant’s conduct was completely inexcusable.

In the event of a fatal injury, we can also seek additional damages for the family’s funeral expenses, loss of financial support, and loss of personal support.
