According to a report in News9.com, on the afternoon of October 6, there was a fatal two-vehicle collision involving a red Corvette and a dark SUV on Danforth Road and Kelly Avenue in Edmond.
The passengers of the red Corvette, a husband and wife in their mid-50’s, were transported to OU Presbyterian Hospital. The wife later died as a result of her injuries. At the time of the report, the husband was in serious condition with a head injury.
The driver of the dark SUV was treated at a separate Edmond hospital. None of his injuries were life-threatening.
Allegedly, the Corvette and the SUV were going in opposite directions on Danforth when the Corvette turned left in front of the SUV. Authorities did not say whether either driver would be cited or charged for the incident.
Losing a loved one in a fatal auto accident is among the worst experiences a person can ever have. Not only is there the mental and emotional anguish to deal with, but family members may also struggle with difficult financial matters in the aftermath of a death, especially if the decedent acted as the primary supporter.
The appointed personal representative of a decedent’s estate plan – usually a spouse, child, sibling or parent – may file a wrongful death claim to pursue compensation for all relevant damages, including medical and funeral expenses, lost wages and loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, loss of consortium and companionship and more.
Pursuing legal action may seem like a monumental task when dealing with the death of a loved one. However, an experienced Oklahoma wrongful death attorney can help facilitate negotiations or, if necessary, fight hard in court to get the victim’s family the compensation they need to find solace.
