Pedestrian Accidents in Oklahoma
It’s bad enough when adults are struck by vehicles because they’re bound to suffer serious injuries, but when a child gets hit the results can be more detrimental since they’re bodies aren’t fully developed. Whenever children get hit by vehicles, it’s usually because of negligent driving. Sometimes it’s hard for drivers to see adult pedestrians crossing the street, so a child is less likely to be seen if a driver is texting, eating, applying makeup, driving under the influence, or falling asleep at the wheel. Once the police unravel why the vehicle struck the 10-year-old girl, her parents could file a personal injury lawsuit with the help of an attorney.
