Pedestrian Accidents in Oklahoma
Bus accidents usually cause severe damage to regular-sized vehicles, which is why it’s no surprise that pedestrians usually suffer critical injuries whenever they’re hit by buses. Pedestrians don’t wear any armor to protect their limbs from potential damage. Injuries can be so severe that injured victims could suffer bodily damages anywhere from months to a lifetime. Some injured victims never heal properly and also suffer anxiety, emotional distress, and mental anguish. It’s very important for injured victims to partner up with an experienced lawyer so that they can help them recover any potential compensation for current and future medical expenses. It’s unfortunate that the accident put Littlebear in critical condition. Depending on what caused the accident, he may be entitled to compensation for his personal injuries.
