Standing with Oklahoma commercial vehicle accident victims


Throughout Oklahoma, commercial vehicles, such as taxis and buses, are used to transport people both short and long distances. Every passenger on a commercial vehicle is vulnerable to the behaviors and abilities of the vehicle's driver. Although commercial vehicle operators often drive more defensively than operators of passenger vehicles, such as cars, some still drive recklessly and potentially endanger the lives of their passengers. Although commercial vehicle accidents are far less frequent than car accidents, they can be more catastrophic and can injure or kill many people because of their size and weight.

CDC explains how drivers can avoid car accidents and injuries


With so many cars on the streets and highways of Oklahoma, collisions between vehicles are common. Even though drivers and passengers may be inside metal frames and have built-in protections, such as seatbelts and airbags, they can still suffer from injuries during collisions. The predominant question then becomes, how can drivers protect themselves from crashes? The answer is to learn to rely on their skills, training and experience. In part, this means preparing for the worst scenarios. Fortunately, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has identified the best ways for drivers to avoid car accidents and the most serious injuries.

Fatal car crash remains under investigation


Oklahoma residents know that one of the leading causes of deaths in this country is motor vehicle crashes. Some fatal motor vehicle accidents result from poor road conditions, weather conditions and other uncontrollable factors. Negligence of another person is also a common contributing factor in fatal accidents. When a fatal accident is caused by another person, the responsible party could be held liable for the wrongful death of the victim.

How can truck drivers prevent truck accidents?


"Big rigs," such as 18-wheelers and delivery trucks, often travel on major highways in Oklahoma at all hours. These vehicles are large and capable of hauling anything from perishable goods to hazardous chemicals, such as gas. When these trucks collide with other motor vehicles, the results are often far worse than common car accidents. Aside from damage to property and injuries to any people involved, truck accidents can cause secondary injuries when the substance or goods being hauled by the truck spill on the road.
