Deadly Ottawa County Car Accident

A fatal Ottawa County car accident took the life of 20-year-old Alexys Crawford in December 2020. The accident occurred on State Highway 10, just north of Wyandotte. According to KOAM Fox 14, Ms. Crawford was involved in a head-on collision. 

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol states that she was traveling north when she swerved to avoid a truck, crossing the centerline and colliding with a 2015 Dodge Durango. The driver of the Durango was also injured and treated at a nearby hospital.

If your loved one is killed in a car accident, you might be entitled to compensation through a wrongful death claim. Our Miami, Oklahoma car accident lawyers will conduct a thorough investigation to determine who was at fault and whether you have a valid claim for damages. In the tragic event that you have lost a loved one, let us help pursue legal action against a negligent party or parties that caused the accident.

How We Can Help

At Bishop & Hayes, we know how a serious injury or the unexpected death of a loved one can disrupt every aspect of your life. We believe that car accident injury victims deserve representation from attorneys that know how insurance companies think and the strategies that they use to deny claims or avoid paying damages. 

Our partners have nearly a half-century of combined legal experience. We have a background in insurance defense and personal injury litigation, giving us unique insight into how the other side thinks and prepares for cases. Our Miami, OK car accident lawyers are not only aggressive litigators but are also highly-trained negotiators adept at reducing clients’ medical bills.

Maximizing Your Recovery After a Car Accident

Without the help of an attorney, you will risk settling for a far lower settlement than your case is worth. Insurance companies often try to get unrepresented injury victims to agree to compensation that fails to cover all of their damages, including future medical treatment or pain and suffering.

At Bishop & Hayes, our Miami, OK car accident lawyers work with a team of experts that can help prove your damages and ensure that you get the maximum compensation allowed under Oklahoma law.

We believe that car accident and injury victims should never have to pay to speak with an attorney. All consultations are free with no obligation to retain our services. If you decide to hire our firm, we have a no-risk recovery policy. Cases are accepted on a contingency-fee basis, meaning you will only owe attorneys’ fees if we recover money on your behalf.

Answers to Common Questions

  • I was in an auto accident. What should I do next?

    If you have been involved in an auto accident, time is of the essence.

    Most importantly, you should seek medical treatment right away. Call 9-1-1 from the scene of the accident. Placing this call will not only prompt emergency medical personnel to come and assess your injuries but also serve as an official record of the incident.

    Never leave the scene of an accident without exchanging information with any other people involved in the crash. If you are able, obtain information from witnesses and try to take pictures or videos of the crash site. The more evidence you can provide, the stronger your case will be. Let your insurance company and health insurance provider know what has happened, but do not go into detail; we can handle all negotiations with insurance providers on your behalf.

    Finally, contact an attorney as soon as possible. We know how to build a case that aggressively seeks the maximum compensation available.

    Getting in touch with us early allows us to take on the insurance companies full force, help you secure necessary medical care, and conduct a comprehensive investigation of your accident to substantiate your claim.

  • What can you do to help with my insurance claim?

    Insurance companies aim to increase profits by providing injury victims with settlements that fall short of the compensation they deserve. Research conducted by the Insurance Research Council revealed that 85% of total compensation for personal injury claims was awarded to individuals who had legal representation. This underscores the importance of legal counsel in ensuring fair compensation from insurance companies.

    Auto injury victims represented by a personal injury attorney receive, on average, 3.5 times more in settlement claims than those who choose not to hire an attorney.

    Insurance companies exploit individuals without representation who lack the means to assess their cases accurately. You have a single opportunity to secure the rightful compensation for you and your loved ones. Let our team fight for what you deserve.

  • What does it cost to work with your firm?

    We believe that you shouldn't be charged to determine the validity of your claim. Our consultations come at no cost and carry no obligation to hire our team. If you choose to work with our team, there will be no upfront expenses. Our policy of risk-free recovery guarantees that you do not have to pay for our services unless we secure compensation for you.

    At Bishop & Hayes, cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, meaning that our fees are not paid until damages are recovered in your case. We work tirelessly to maximize damages for our clients so that you receive total and fair compensation for your injuries.

  • How much is my case worth?

    One of the most common (and complex) inquiries we receive is, "what is the value of my case?" Since each case is unique, determining its worth cannot be calculated by a formula. Numerous factors come into play, including the extent of injuries, an individual's lifestyle and life expectancy, the behavior and responsibility of all involved parties, and various other considerations.

    Our legal team assertively seeks compensation for various losses such as medical bills, future treatments, lost wages, reduced earning capacity, disabilities, scarring, pain and suffering, lost enjoyment of life, and other financial and emotional damages.

    We collaborate with a network of skilled medical specialists to establish the cause, characteristics, and severity of debilitating injuries, such as:

    The best way to get an accurate case valuation is to speak with an experienced auto accident lawyer. Our goal is to recover the damages you need to improve your health and live a fulfilling life following an accident.

  • Who do I meet with when I hire Bishop & Hayes?

    We believe that when you hire a legal team, you should be represented by the lawyers whose names are on the door. Although we have a phenomenal professional staff to assist us with your case, our partners do the work, not a paralegal or an associate.
