Each year in Oklahoma there are thousands of motor vehicle accidents. For the most part, the vast majority of these accidents are so-called “fender benders.” However, the unfortunate reality is that some motor vehicle accidents lead to severe injuries for drivers and passengers alike, which can further lead to all kinds of additional complications.
For one, those who have suffered injuries in a car accident are likely to start seeing medical bills stacking up, even as they attempt to recover to full health. While many people have health and car insurance policies that may help with some medical expenses, the fact is that oftentimes the expenses are more than what can be covered by insurance. In the most severe instances, car accident victims might suffer broken bones, back or neck injuries and even brain trauma. These are not the types of injuries that a person recovers from quickly.
When serious motor vehicle accidents lead to serious medical bills, injured victims may need to consider the option of potentially pursuing a personal injury lawsuit against the party that caused the accident. Distracted drivers, drunk drivers and even drowsy drivers are seemingly omnipresent on the roads of Oklahoma and throughout the country these days, and they present a danger to others on the roads. When these negligent and reckless drivers cause car accidents, they should be held accountable for their conduct.
