Compensation and Representation for Those Involved in a Car Accident
It is no secret that car accidents are the top cause of personal injury in the United States. In Oklahoma alone, there were roughly 54,000 car accidents in 2013. As the popularity of cell phones and text messaging has risen over the years, so have the number of car crashes. The large majority of automobile accidents are due to distraction, negligence, or recklessness on part of the driver. If you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident caused by the negligence or inadequacy of a driver, you deserve to receive fair compensation and justice. Here at Atkins & Markoff, our experienced team of Oklahoma city car accident lawyers will work with you to ensure you are properly compensated for your injuries, medical expenses, emotional trauma, and more.
Reckless driving, negligence, or distraction on the part of the driver is perhaps the most common cause of a car accident. This distraction may be due to texting, talking on the phone while driving, eating, switching radio stations, messing with the GPS system, putting on makeup, speaking to someone in the passenger seat or backseat, and so on. Negligent driving can lead to a serious car wreck, which may even result in death. Careless driving, such as speeding, weaving in and out of traffic, and driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol is yet another leading cause of Oklahoma car crashes.
Most Common Injuries From Car Accidents
There are a wide range of injuries that could be sustained as the result of a car accident. While some injuries are minor, in some cases the injuries can be extremely serious and may even lead to death. Common injuries may include whiplash, seat belt injuries, and injuries from the inflation of the car’s air bag. More serious types of injuries may include broken bones, brain injury, spinal cord injuries, and internal injuries. The type of injury will depend on the specific car accident. Factors such as speed, angle of impact, and whether or not seat belts were worn and the air bags were activated will also play a role in the seriousness of an accident. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident due to the negligence or carelessness of another driver, please contact a car accident attorney from Atkins & Markoff today and see how we can help you receive fair compensation.
