Vehicle Accidents in Oklahoma
Although drivers are required to drive responsibly at all times, vehicle accidents still occur daily in the United States. The main cause is negligent driving, which consists of using a cell phone, eating, applying makeup, speeding, driving under the influence, or conversing with a passenger. Drivers might not think some of these examples are as hazardous as others, but they’re all a distraction that puts everyone at risk. It only takes a couple of seconds of distracted driving for a serious accident to occur, which could risk the lives of everyone involved. It’s highly unfortunate that a life was lost in this accident. Once the police determine why the accident occurred, the deceased driver’s family members could work with an attorney to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
