Vehicle Accidents in Oklahoma
Whenever single-vehicle accidents occur, there’s a possibility that mechanical failure could have been the cause. Studies show that the most common cause of a vehicle failure accident is flat tires, which are responsible for 11.4 percent of all vehicle accidents. The police are currently evaluating Miller’s vehicle to determine if mechanical failure played a role in causing her death. They’re also checking for any hazardous road conditions, such as dangerous cracks, debris, and objects. Once they conclude their findings, it’s possible that Miller’s family could file a wrongful death lawsuit with the help of an Oklahoma wrongful death attorney.
