Vehicle Accidents in Oklahoma
Recent studies revealed that about 1,300 people lose their lives every year on snowy, slushy, or icy roads in Oklahoma. Because the pavement isn’t secure, it’s important that drivers do not speed, drive under the influence, use their cell phones, drive fatigued, and more. The police are currently investigating this accident to determine fault and liability, but so far, they believe the cause of the accident appears to be unsafe speed on wet road. Once they finalize their findings, Price’s family may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit and the truck driver may qualify to file a personal injury lawsuit.
