Motor vehicles can be dangerous to both their drivers and passengers. This was shown again in an accident in Bethany late last month. As reported by News9, the accident happened when two vehicles collided, causing one vehicle to roll over. Emergency crews were needed to extract some occupants of the overturned vehicle. One adult and one child were injured. The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
According to the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office (OHSO), there were a reported 4,286 rollover accidents in Oklahoma in 2014. Of that number, 2,593 resulted in injury and another 210 resulted in death.
If you or a family member gets injured in a motor vehicle accident, you could be facing excessive medical bills for surgeries, extended hospital stays, emergency room fees, and medications. Then, there’s the cost of in home care while you rehabilitate, special equipment, such as wheel chair ramps and lifts, and significant time off from work. Your insurance policy or the other driver’s insurance policy may pay some of these costs; they won’t pay all of them.
To recover the remaining costs, you may need to file a personal injury claim.
