Only an Oklahoma attorney could advise, as your situation could involve state or county-specific law, but your question remains open for two weeks. If something was to happen, as a general matter, there's nothing to stop a motorist from suing in such settings. Nationwide (without knowing about...View More
An Oklahoma attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. A civil litigation attorney should be able to handle a straightforward one. If the matter is highly technical with engineering or architectural attributes, there are construction law attorneys. Good luck
You ask two questions here. The first question regards when a civil suit should be filed (if a criminal case is pending). The answer to that question is you should not wait to talk to a civil attorney about proceeding with a civil suit until the criminal case is closed. There are too many pitfalls...View More
