Know Your Legal Rights in Norman, OK

Don't Be Railroaded by the System

Any person involved in a legal matter should know their rights. Whether your case involves defending against criminal accusations, a personal injury case, a workers' comp claim or you are facing a divorce or other family law matter, you have rights.

At the Law Offices of Keith J. Nedwick, P.C., we zealously protect the rights of our clients, and we never give up. Based upon the type of case, our team of Norman attorneys can get to work to ensure you are not railroaded by the legal system.

Your Rights As a Defendant

If you are facing charges for any criminal offense, you are protected by the constitution.

Some of the rights that you hold include:

  • The right to remain silent and the right to an attorney.
  • You are also protected against illegal search and seizure.
  • You have the right to a speedy trial, and the right to confront your accuser.
  • You have the right to be judged by a jury of your peers.

These are just some of the rights that our firm will protect. For example, if you were arrested and charged with a crime involving drugs, we will engage in an investigation into the facts—were you the victim of a rights violation? If so, you can trust us to demand that all evidence gathered illegally is suppressed. The police, whether city, state or federal, are not perfect. They make mistakes, and when they do, we will bring this fact to the attention of the court. This can be beneficial in any criminal case, from DUI to the most serious drug crime or violent crime.

Your Rights As an Victim of Negligence

If you are the victim of an act of negligence, you have the right to pursue compensation for damages. There are several types of damages you can seek, including economic damages and non-economic damages. In order to be successful in a claim or lawsuit, you must present clear evidence that another party was negligent, and that this negligence caused you to suffer injuries.

In many personal injury cases, the matter of a settlement is negotiated out of court. When the insurance company challenges your claim, or tries to avoid paying fair compensation, you have the right to take the case to civil court and seek justice. We are deeply involved in personal injury and medical malpractice cases, and we pursue the maximum in damages for those we represent. Our legal team has recovered millions in damages and offers a free case evaluation to help you.

Your Rights if Injured at Work

If you were injured at work, you have the right to workers' compensation benefits. The process of filing a claim requires that you submit the correct information, and within certain time limits. The insurance company that will pay your represents your employer - not you. Your claim could be challenged, or you could be paid less than you deserve, simply because you don't have an attorney investigating the situation and taking action for you.

We are prepared to help you pursue the maximum in workers' comp benefits, as well as file a third party claim to recover further compensation if your case involves negligence by a party not your employer. We also seek death benefits for families who have lost a loved one in a work-related accident. We are here to protect your right to full compensation.

Your Rights in Divorce

As a married person, you have rights in divorce. The marital assets must be divided fairly, and your parental rights must be protected. At the Law Offices of Keith J. Nedwick, P.C., we are committed to protecting the rights of our clients in all matters related to divorce or family law. Whether you need help with a paternity case, in drafting a prenuptial that protects your personal assets or in adoption, we focus on protecting your rights. Should a divorce go to trial, our team of attorneys has the trial skills and ability to present a strategic case to protect your interests.

Call us today for a firm that will zealously protect your rights in criminal court, civil court, in personal injury claims, workers' comp claims and in family law matters.
