Vehicle Accidents in Oklahoma
Vehicle accidents occur every day despite the fact that drivers are required to drive responsibly at all times. The most devastating aspect of vehicle accidents is that drivers and passengers almost always obtain some type of injury. Injuries usually range from minor to fatal. The most common injuries are head injuries, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractured bones, internal injuries, and limb injuries. Even if these injuries are minor, it’s important for injured victims to maintain regular checkups with a healthcare provider just in case new symptoms develop or previous symptoms worsen. Unfortunately, the most common causes of vehicle accidents is negligent driving, which in most cases can be avoided. Negligent driving includes speeding, driving under the influence, falling asleep at the wheel, eating, applying makeup, and even programming a GPS. Although this accident is still undergoing investigation, it’s been confirmed that the other driver was driving under the influence, which was why the collision occurred. The police officer could file a personal injury lawsuit with the help of a personal injury attorney.
