Two Pedestrians Injured in Oklahoma City Hit-and-Run

By Car Accident Help on June 3, 2013

Two pedestrians were injured in an Oklahoma car accident involving a hit-and-run driver. According to a News 9 report, the hit-and-run accident occurred at SW 32nd Street and Blackwelder in Oklahoma City. Officials say the two victims were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. It is unclear from the report if they have any clues regarding the whereabouts of the vehicle or the identity of the hit-and-run driver who fled the scene.

It is against the law to leave the scene of an Oklahoma car accident when someone has been injured or killed. Under Oklahoma Statute 47-10-102: “The driver of any vehicle involved in an accident resulting in a nonfatal injury to any person shall immediately stop such vehicle at the scene of such accident or as close thereto as possible but shall then forthwith return to and in every event shall remain at the scene of the accident.”

Victims of Oklahoma hit-and-run accidents do not always have the ability to hold the at-fault driver accountable for the crash. When a hit-and-run driver is not found, the victim or victims will have to pursue other legal options to receive compensation for their medical bills, lost wages and other related damages.

One possible way to pursue compensation following a hit-and-run crash is for the victim to use his or her own uninsured motorist coverage (UIM). Individuals who purchase UIM coverage can pursue support through their own insurance provider if they are injured by an uninsured, underinsured or hit-and-run driver. All motorists are encouraged to purchase as much UIM coverage as they can afford because many Oklahoma motorists do not have adequate coverage and hit-and-run crashes can happen at anytime.

The skilled personal injury lawyers at Maples Law Firm stay abreast of ongoing investigations to ensure that negligent drivers are held accountable for their wrongdoing. If you or a loved one has been injured in an Oklahoma car accident, please call our offices today at (888) 226-6159 to discuss your legal rights and options.
