Pedestrian Accidents in Oklahoma
Pedestrian accidents almost always end in tragedies because pedestrians usually suffer severe, catastrophic, or fatal injuries. The most common injuries are brain damage, broken bones, internal injuries, spinal cord injuries, and neck injuries. If results aren’t fatal, some injuries require medical treatment for a lifetime. Some injured victims never get to return to doing normal physical activities. Unfortunately, in this case, a tiny child lost his or her life. No parent should ever have to experience the pain of watching their child get hit by a car. The mother could file a wrongful death lawsuit with the help of an attorney.
The most common cause for pedestrian accidents is distracted driving. If a driver is texting, driving under the influence, eating, or applying makeup, the driver’s attention is not solely on the road. Drivers are responsible for being aware of their surroundings even in the most inopportune places.
