Exciting things are always happening in Oklahoma’s capital, Oklahoma City, but today there were devastating results for a woman involved in an accident. The two-car fatal wrecked left a young woman dead in the early morning. Officials who arrived to investigate the scene released info that the woman inside one of the vehicles was ejected. Unfortunately, even though crews did CPR on the woman, she was pronounced dead at the scene due to her injuries.
When the two-car fatal wreck occurred, the woman was driving a pickup headed west. She ran a stop sign and collided with a red Mustang headed in the other direction. The truck rolled while the Mustang promptly rolled into trees. The first people to arrive at the scene noticed the pickup truck in the wreckage and that it was smoking, and that a woman was lying next to the truck. They commented on how young she was and that they were hoping she would make it through the accident.
When You Lose a Loved One to an Accident
In today’s two-car fatal wreck in Oklahoma City, it was clear that the driver of the Mustang was not liable for the death of the young woman due to the circumstances of the case. However, some cases are much different and liability falls on the other party. Wrongful death lawsuits stem from a loved one’s life being lost at the hands of a negligent party. As humans, we will always make mistakes on the roads, but what happens when a mistake leads to our loved one losing their life?
Families may be able to compensate in cases where their loved one’s life is lost due to negligence. In cases where a driver has been driving distracted, speeding, or drinking and driving, they could be liable for damages like funeral expenses, loss of income, and emotional suffering to a family. Punitive damages also come into play to punish defendants for their reckless actions in these cases.
