It goes without saying that nobody wants to get into a car accident, and yet car accidents seem to be an unavoidable fact of life. Much like illness, no matter how hard we try to prevent or eradicate them, they continue to occur throughout society, claiming lives and affecting the health and well-being of people all across the country. Unfortunately, Oklahoma is no exception. Despite the best efforts of many safe, defensive drivers, car accidents still occur.
This is largely due to the fact that it only takes one person experiencing a momentary lapse of judgment in order for an accident to occur. You can be driving down the road, surrounded by three other vehicles, and though three of the four drivers may be utilizing safe driving practices, if the fourth driver opts to check his or her phone and drifts in the lane, all four drivers may find themselves involved in an accident.
So what are Oklahoma residents to do in situations where they are so ultimately powerless? For there are indeed many accidents in which there is nothing you can do to avoid serious injury. We can only pray that people involved in these accidents escape with their lives, hopefully suffering only minimal injuries, but, unfortunately, this is not always the case.
