Impaired driving continues to be a problem in Oklahoma

Unfortunately, many families across Oklahoma know the reality of impaired driving. A person who chooses to drive after drinking alcohol or doing drugs puts their lives at risk along with everyone they meet along the way. Families who are affected by an impaired driver do have legal rights.

Impaired driving in Oklahoma

Impaired drivers in Oklahoma cause numerous accidents each year, some of them even fatal. In 2018, there were 145 deaths as the result of alcohol impaired traffic crashes. These accidents could have been avoided if a person didn’t make the decision to drive after they have been drinking.

Tips to prevent drunk driving

Everyone understands the seriousness of drunk driving and how it can impact others. There are ways for a person to still enjoy drinking alcohol and remaining safe. These include:

  • Designating someone as a sober ride home
  • If a person has been drinking, calling a ride-share or cab for a sober ride home
  • Not letting someone drive who has been drinking
  • Not getting into a car with someone who has been drinking

If a family has been affected by a drunk driver, they may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in personal injury. An attorney can help the family get the answers they deserve as to what happened. They can visit the accident scene, interview witnesses, and review the police report. They can hold the negligent driver responsible for their mistake and compensation may be available for medical expenses, lost wages, funeral expenses, pain and suffering and other damages.
