One person injured in Oklahoma SUV accident

Every day, Oklahomans know there is some chance of being in a motor vehicle accident. If they drive sports utility vehicles, they may know that older models of some of these vehicles are more prone to rolling over. SUV accidents, however, are underreported because they are often lumped into the car accident category. In recent years, SUV manufacturers have modified their vehicles to make them more stable and less likely to roll over during sudden maneuvers or when in accidents. Still, these vehicles can be involved in collisions, just like other types of motor vehicles.

The why and how of SUV rollover accidents

When sports utility vehicles are involved in motor vehicle accidents, they often end up rolling over because of their higher centers of gravity. SUV owners in Oklahoma may or may not already know this fact, but becoming aware of the problem and the potential for injury and death from a rollover is critically important. For decades the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has examined the causes and consequences of a variety of motor vehicle accidents, including SUV accidents, and has made a number of findings.

If you are an SUV accident victim, you might get compensation

It is common knowledge that motor vehicle accidents such as SUV accidents often lead to catastrophic injuries and fatalities. We have seen too many people who were devastated by SUV accidents. Some of them lost the breadwinner of their family, causing financial problems for the entire family. Some of the victims have to endure months of medical treatment and rehabilitation before they were able to get back on track.

How do you determine liability in Oklahoma SUV accidents?

Motor vehicle accidents, including SUV accidents, may happen anywhere, especially in busy areas like Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Readers should understand that any type of motor vehicle accident is governed by the law of negligence. Accordingly, if you were involved in an SUV accident, you may be thinking that you are entitled to awards and damages that can be used to pay for medical expenses and other losses.

Some have witnessed collisions involving large vehicles, such as commercial trucks, and some have seen accidents with smaller vehicles, such as sports utility vehicles. Regardless of the size of a vehicle, property can be damaged and people can be injured or killed. For that reason, drivers must be careful whenever they operate their vehicles.
