Tulsa Distracted Driving Car Accident Causes Injuries

By Car Accident Help on November 5, 2012

Two people were injured in a Tulsa car accident, which officials say, may have involved a distracted driver. According to a News On 6 report, the injury accident occurred near 21st and Skelly in Tulsa. Officials say the female driver of an SUV was searching for something in her backseat when she rear-ended a truck that was stopped at a red light. Both drivers were taken to a nearby hospital. It is not clear if the woman responsible for the crash will face charges for the collision.

Distracted driving is more than just making a call or sending a text while driving. There are many ways in which a driver can lose focus. If you take your hands off the wheel, your eyes off the road, or your mind off the task at hand, you are driving while distracted. Drivers who are talking to passengers, reaching to change the CD, or operating an electronic navigation system, for example, are putting themselves and others in harm’s way.

There is no current cell phone ban in Oklahoma. However, the law requires drivers to exercise due care. Under Oklahoma law, drivers must “devote their full time and attention” to driving. When distracted drivers cause an accident, they can be held accountable for their actions. Victims of distracted drivers can pursue financial compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related damages.

The experienced Oklahoma distracted driver crash lawyers at the Maples Law Firm know how to hold distracted drivers accountable for their losses. We provide free consultations at (888) 226-6159 to anyone who has been injured in a Tulsa car accident.
