Vehicle Accidents in Oklahoma
Hundreds of thousands of car accidents happen every year in the United States, resulting in severe, catastrophic, and fatal injuries. The leading cause of most accidents always falls under some form of negligent behavior. Because this accident occurred around 2:00 a.m. and one of the drivers was driving the wrong way, it’s likely that drugs and alcohol may have played a role. It’s also possible that one of the drivers fell asleep at the wheel. Once the police uncover what caused the collision, it’s likely that wrongful death lawsuits will be filed. Receiving compensation by no means replaces the life of a loved, but it will help with any medical expenses and funeral costs.
