In Oklahoma, from the time that you are in a vehicle collision you have two years to file a lawsuit to recover damages for injuries.  This limit is known as the statute of limitations and it is found in 76 O.S.§5.5.

Typically, insurance coverage will pay damages before that time elapses, but if no settlement has been made and the time elapses then the opposing party's insurance carrier will have no obligation to pay you so be sure that you have secured your claim.
