so you may be wondering, why is our name 222 injury lawyers? let us explain

I could never represent an insurance company and here is why. When I was 7 years old my parents had just bought a brand new trailer house for our family to live in. Me and my mother and sister had gone to stay the weekend with my oldest sister a few weeks after we got the new house and a tornado came through while my dad and brother were asleep in the house. My dad heard it coming and got the two of them out before it hit, but it was a direct hit and the house and all of our belongings were completely destroyed

When my dad filed the insurance claim, it was completely denied because they said we didn’t have the proper tie downs on the trailer. We were left homeless. We had nowhere to go. We lived in a barn for quite some time while my parents worked to get themselves back on their feet. I vividly remember rats running through the rafters when we would lay down to sleep at night. The trauma from that is deeply imbedded in my memory.

No one in my family had ever graduated from college before me. After graduating from OU I decided to go to law school and I knew when I got out exactly what kind of law I wanted to handle. I wanted to do everything I could to help other families avoid getting taken advantage of by insurance companies. So for the last 30 years, that’s all I have done.

So, you may be asking, what does that have to do with 2/22. Well, that tornado hit on 2/22 1975 and the clocks found amongst the debris were all stopped at 2:22 in the morning. I’ve never forgotten that date. 2/22. So when my son and daughter and I were discussing starting our own law firm, it occurred to me that I would not be doing what I’m doing today and my children probably would not be lawyers joining me except for what happened on 2/22. It is why we exist. That’s our 2/22. What’s yours?

About Personal Injury Personal Injury FAQs

Do I Need A Lawyer To Represent My Claim? My Insurance Provider Said It’s Unnecessary.

The simple answer is yes. When you get hurt in an accident, insurance companies aren’t your friend. Their only responsibility is to protect the individual or company that hurt you and minimize the amount of compensation you receive. 222 Injury Lawyers have the experience to take the stress of dealing with insurance companies off your shoulders and help you get back to your life as soon as possible.

What happens if I’m partially at fault for the accident?

In Oklahoma, being partially at fault for an accident doesn’t mean you can’t be compensated. While insurance companies may tell you they’re unwilling to pay, at 222 Injury Lawyers our goal is to gather the information and formulate the legal theories that will change their mind, including taking them to trial when necessary. We know there’s always more to the story than what is reflected on an accident report, and 222 Injury Lawyers are willing to fight for Oklahomans in these situations to make sure you aren’t taken advantage of.

What Can I Expect During My Personal Injury Case?

The first thing you can expect is someone to talk to that actually cares about your well-being.

We will take care of handling the insurance companies. We will make sure you’re able to find a doctor to help get you the treatment you need. We make sure every person or company that could be responsible for your injuries are held accountable. 222 Injury Lawyers are with you every step of the way.
