If negligence caused your injuries, you may claim damages

If you are suffering the consequences of an injury that resulted from another person's negligence, you might have questions about your rights to seek financial relief for the losses you sustained. You may be entitled to file a personal injury lawsuit in an Oklahoma civil court. Regardless of whether it was a car crash, slip-and-fall or another type of accident, if you can establish negligence, you have a good chance of recovering compensatory damages.

Car accidents: Life of young cheerleader cut short

Losing a child unexpectedly because of a vehicle wreck may be one of the most devastating processes a parent has to go through. Surviving loved ones of those killed in car accidents typically experience a range of negative emotions, such as confusion, anger, guilt, sadness, blame and countless others. For one Oklahoma family, these emotions have become a reality after losing their daughter, a high school cheerleader, from a heartbreaking car accident.

Fatigue is detrimental to the safety of commercial truck drivers

Safety authorities say the primary causes of fatigue that leads to commercial truck drivers falling asleep include acquired sleeping problems exacerbated by their circumstances, long driving hours and unhealthy lifestyles -- all directly linked to their jobs.

Legal entitlements after fatal car accidents

One of the most common causes of car accidents is a distracted driver. In a matter of seconds, an accident can occur should a driver divert his or her attention away from the road. As a result, severe injuries are sometimes sustained and, even worse, a fatality. In the event of a fatal car accident, Oklahoma families should be aware of any legal entitlement available to them.

When is traveling covered by workers' compensation?

If you are a member of the Oklahoma workforce, you will likely find comfort in knowing that your employer has workers' compensation insurance that will cover your medical expenses and lost wages in the event of an on-the-job accident. You might qualify for compensation even if your injury occurs away from your work site. As long as your activities are work-related, you can claim benefits. This means that even while on a team-building exercise or a company-sponsored afternoon at the bowling alley, any injury you suffer will be compensable.

1 dead in highway car accident
