The Dangers of Cell Phone Use on Oklahoma Roads

By Car Accident Help on August 16, 2012

Victims of Oklahoma car accidents have the right to pursue compensation for their losses from the at-fault driver under state law. Generally, the victim will have to prove that the other driver caused the accident through his or her careless or reckless behavior. Drivers who caused an accident through acts of negligence can be held financially responsible for their actions. Injured victims can also seek compensation from distracted drivers who cause an accident. The law views distracted driving as negligent driving.

Cell phones and other electronic devices are among the most common causes of car accidents involving distracted driving. Under Oklahoma law, school bus drivers are banned from using a cell phone or sending a text message while on the job. All drivers who are on a learner’s or intermediate license are banned from using a handheld phone or sending a text as well. However, there is no statewide ban in Oklahoma that prevents all drivers from using a cell phone while driving. Drivers who cause injury accidents while driving, in addition to facing citations or criminal charges, can also be held civilly liable by injured victims.

Examples of careless driving involving cell phone use may include driving with only one hand on the wheel, taking one’s eyes off the road to dial a number, and failing to notice changing traffic conditions while looking at a phone or being distracted by a conversation. Anyone injured in an Oklahoma car accident caused by a distracted driver would be well advised to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer who will help them obtain fair compensation for their losses such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

The reputed Oklahoma distracted driving victim attorneys at Maples Law Firm have a long and successful track record of holding negligent drivers accountable and helping injured victims get the compensation they rightfully deserve.
