Car accidents can often be terrible, life-altering events. The speed and size of large motor vehicles ramming into each other is enough to cause colossal damage not just to the cars themselves, but to the passengers inside them. Of course, the size of vehicles varies, which means that the injuries that car accident victims are likely to suffer will vary as well. For instance, the damage that a semi-truck can cause is much greater than the damage that a small sports car would cause.
An SUV accident is a fairly common occurrence in today’s day and age. The SUV is a popular family vehicle, and parents rushing their children to soccer or basketball practice after school might find themselves in an accident. Even if you are a careful driver, other drivers who are more negligent, rushing to get home after a long day at work, might strike you. An SUV is a relatively large vehicle, meaning that they can cause significant damage to others in an accident.
An SUV accident will almost certainly mean insurance claims and vehicle damage, but in more serious scenarios, it could mean personal injury as well. Personal injury could saddle victims with medical bills and make life much more difficult. Fortunately, like other states, Oklahoma does not require victims to foot the bill for the negligent driving that put them in the hospital.
In most cases, victims are entitled to compensation at the expense of the driver who was at fault in the accident. If you or a loved one was injured in an SUV accident and you believe that the other driver was at fault, consider meeting with an attorney to discuss the circumstances of your case.
