Auto-Pedestrian Accidents in Oklahoma
Auto-pedestrian accidents almost always result into injuries that are severe, catastrophic, or fatal. The reason being because pedestrians don’t wear bodily protection to shield themselves from vehicles as they walk the streets. The most common injuries are fractured bones, internal damage, brain damage, neck injuries, and spinal cord injuries. Because Ryan suffered fatal injuries, his family could pursue a wrongful death lawsuit with the help of an experienced attorney.
The most common cause for auto-pedestrian accidents is drivers not paying attention to the road. The reason why hit-and-runs occur is because some drivers have an expired license, no registration, no auto insurance, or a stolen vehicle. Once officials find the driver responsible for taking the life of Ryan, appropriate charges will be pressed. This is a devastating time for Ryan’s family; therefore, the driver deserves to suffer the consequences.
