Fatal Car Accidents Up In Oklahoma

By Car Accident Help on August 10, 2015

Oklahoma City Car Accident DeathsOklahoma 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. By contacting Attorney Ray Maples, you will have a seasoned friend in your quest to do right by your lost loved one. You owe it your future and your family’s future to be represented by the Oklahoma City legal team which has won multi-million dollar settlements in similar cases. Call us today at (877) 478-3737 for a free, comprehensive consultation. We charge no fees unless we win for you.
