According to Tulsa accident lawyers, Oklahoma comes under the shared fault rule. Basically, the shared fault rule implies that all persons involved in an accident are responsible for compensating financial damages caused. Their faults are determined in a courtroom and they will be held liable as per how much they were at fault by. So for instance, if two persons are involved in an accident and it is determined that one of them was at fault by 75% and the other was at fault by 25% then accordingly, one person would be responsible for 75% of the damages and the latter for 25% of the damages.
