You’ve Been in an Oklahoma Truck Accident: Now What?

By Car Accident Help on January 31, 2011

Truck accidents in Oklahoma can be serious, and oftentimes leave those involved with severe or even fatal injuries. Depending on the circumstances of the crash, a person may sustain injuries that permanently alter the way they live their life. A fully loaded truck weighs approximately 80,000 pounds, and in addition to a truck’s sheer size, even a seemingly “small” accident can have dire consequences. A passenger vehicle can weigh anywhere between 3,000 pounds and 8,000 plus pounds, which is no match for a large commercial truck.

In 2009, large trucks were involved in 4,309 Oklahoma traffic accidents, with 76 of those crashes resulting in a fatality according to the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office. Approximately 1,230 of those accidents resulted in injuries of varying severity.

Truck drivers have strict schedules that they must follow, and oftentimes drivers or trucking companies do not always adhere to regulations and laws regarding driving and rest hours. In some cases, drivers may utilize drugs or other stimulants to help them reach their destination on time, depriving their bodies of sleep and endangering other motorists on the road. When this occurs and someone is injured because of truck driver or trucking company’s negligence, those parties can be held liable for any accidents or injuries that result.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident that was caused someone else’s negligence, seek medical attention immediately. Then, contact a highly qualified Oklahoma City truck crash attorney like the lawyers at The Maples Law Firm. We have handled a plethora of truck accident injury cases in Oklahoma and know how to successfully defend your rights in a court of law.

Serious injuries or the sudden death of a loved one in a truck accident can place a heavy burden on a family. That burden is often made heavier particularly if the crash could have been prevented. Our attorneys will build a strong case on your behalf in order to hold all negligent parties responsible for their actions and garner you the compensation you deserve. While no amount of money can take back what happened, it can help with accident-related expenses such as medical bills, loss of a help, loss of income, pain and suffering, and more. Call The Maples Law Firm at 1-888-226-6159 for a free consultation.
