Options for victims of car accidents caused by distracted driving

Inattentive and distracted driving is a growing problem and safety concern in a number of places, including in Oklahoma. The use of cell phones or other electronic devices while driving increases the risk of an accident by three times. Distracted driving is particularly serious because it compromises the driver's visual, manual and mental focus.

A deeper look at train accident statistics

The Federal Railroad Administration Office of Safety keeps track of railroad accidents because of the serious nature of these incidents. Of the railroads reporting, 4,404 total train accidents and incidents were reported in 2012; 4,601 total train accidents and incidents were reported in 2013; 5,035 total train accidents and incidents were reported in 2014; and 4,559 total train accidents and incidents were reported in 2015.

Oklahoma SUV accident kills mother and child

A crash involving a car and an SUV recently claimed the lives of an Oklahoma woman and her child. The woman was killed in the head-on collision and her 10-month-old son was pronounced dead at the hospital following the SUV accident. The woman's 2-year old daughter was life-flighted to an Oklahoma hospital in stable condition. The accident occurred a couple of hours east of Oklahoma City.

Aggressive advocates for Oklahoma car accident victims

In Oklahoma car accidents are unfortunately a major cause of injury and death. On average, approximately 28,000 car accident victims are killed or injured each year in the state. Though unfortunately somewhat common, car accidents are always unexpected and can leave victims with significant disruptions to their personal, physical, financial and emotional lives.
