Fatal Car Accidents Up In Oklahoma
Oklahoma is a big state with endless miles of streets, roads, and highways. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the Highway Loss Data Institute, the year 2013 saw 621 fatal traffic accidents in Oklahoma, leading to 678 deaths. That’s 17.6 deaths for every 100,000 people in the state’s population, tying Oklahoma with Alabama for the fifth highest per capita traffic death rate in the nation. These are scary numbers.
While most Oklahoma residents drive motor vehicles on a daily basis, we often forget how inherently dangerous it is to be on the road. All traffic accidents are unfortunate, but they become tragedies when the result is death. If a loved one has died as the result of an auto crash, and you believe it’s because of the negligence or misconduct of another driver, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim.
A successful wrongful death suit can result in you being awarded monetary compensation for the damages you and your family have suffered. These damages can include, but are not limited to:
- Medical bills and funeral costs
- Pain and suffering of the deceased before they died
- Loss of future income and retirement benefits
- Mental and physical anguish
- Loss of companionship
When filing a wrongful death claim, it’s important to have experienced legal counsel at your side. The legal process in these cases can be quite complex and overwhelming, especially for anyone who just lost a dear family member.
