What To Do After A Semi Truck Accident in Oklahoma

By Car Accident Help on June 20, 2023 | Posted in: Truck Collision

Every day across Oklahoma’s highways, semi truck accidents happen. When a truck accident occurs, it can result in serious and catastrophic injuries or death, especially if it is an accident between a car and a large truck.  

In 2021, large truck-involved accidents accounted for 112 fatalities on Oklahoma roadways and over 1,800 injuries. In Oklahoma large truck accidents caused by the truck driver, the two most common contributing factors for the accidents were “improper driving act or movement” and “changed lanes unsafely.” When a passenger vehicle driver was responsible for the accident, the top contributing factors were “failed to yield” and “changed lanes unsafely.” 

If you are involved in an 18-wheeler or semi truck accident, it’s imperative that you know what to do following the accident. After the crash, you will want to make sure you follow the correct steps to protect yourself, your legal options and your rights after the accident. If you are involved in an accident with another passenger vehicle, you can read more about what to do after an accident in our previous blog post about what to do following passenger vehicle accidents.

If you are seriously injured in an accident with a truck, call 911 immediately. Seeking medical attention is the most important action you can take.

As the largest state capitol and the eighth-largest city in the United States by land area, it’s not a secret that Oklahoma City has a lot of roads and highways. But even more than Oklahoma City itself, the entire state has nearly 250,000 roadway miles and 30,000 lane miles of highway. Because of Oklahoma’s vast roadway system, there is a high accident incident rate for the state. Many of Oklahoma’s roads can be dangerous for drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists.

What Are The Cell Phone Laws for Drivers in Oklahoma?

By Car Accident Help on May 13, 2023 | Posted in: Distracted Driver

There’s been much discussion recently about Oklahoma’s cell phone laws for drivers. In the February 2023 legislative session, Representative Ross Ford of Broken Arrow authored a proposed bill that would help deter distracted driving in Oklahoma due to cell phone use. The bill, House Bill 2228, outlines a ban on operating a motor vehicle while the driver is holding or using a handheld cellular telephone or other electronic device when the car is in motion.  

Despite the high risk of car accidents and injury, many drivers use their phones for watching videos, social media, searching on the internet, and using other apps while driving. Current Oklahoma driving laws don’t directly address these types of cell phone use, and this proposed bill would help address it. The bill passed out of the house public safety committee and is now eligible to be considered by the full house. So while HB 2228 is not guaranteed to become law in Oklahoma, it is vital for drivers to understand what the distracted driving laws currently are and how cell phone use is limited by law while operating a vehicle. Our team of experienced auto accident attorneys has explained the ins and outs of Oklahoma driving cell phone laws below. 

If you are in a situation where you know you need help from a car accident attorney because a distracted driver injured you, contact our team today. We would be happy to provide a free consultation.

What To Do If You Have Back Pain After a Car Accident

By Car Accident Help on March 17, 2023 | Posted in: Car Accident Injury

Car accidents happen suddenly, and you can’t always be sure of what’s happened right away. One moment you’re cruising toward your destination, the next, you’re violently shaken by a collision. Trying to remember the steps you’re supposed to take is difficult enough, but the stress-related chemicals flowing through your body post-accident can have other effects that don’t become apparent right away.

What happens if you file your accident report, speak with a police officer, and get home to finally breathe, only to find out once you’ve begun to relax that maybe you’re a little more hurt than you realized? Worse yet, what if this doesn’t happen for a day or two following the accident?
