New law to make drunk drivers face full consequences

Generally speaking, repeat DUI offenders face more serious charges as their behavior continues. This is done in hopes that the threat of a felony criminal record and jail time will deter individuals from continuing to break the law. However, if the threat of more serious consequences is not upheld, what is to stop an individual from continuing their unlawful behavior? It is this exact question that may have led Oklahoma officials to question the record-keeping of many of the state's municipalities.

Amnesia issues during personal injury litigation

When an individual suffers a catastrophic brain injury as the result of an auto accident caused by someone else, they or their families may want to seek compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. Cases of this nature can be extremely complex and quite lengthy, and may require the injured individual to testify in court. For the victim, this process can be extremely frustrating. However, if they suffer from injury related amnesia, the entire case can be challenging.

Victims of DUI get financial help from program

For those injured in an automobile accident, the recovery process can be long and expensive. Not only is the physical toll the injuries take incredible, but the financial impact catastrophic injuries can inflict on families is also extraordinary. Many times, the financial struggle is almost as bad as the physical one, and can affect a family's financial well-being for years to come. Fortunately, the victims of drunk drivers in Oklahoma may be eligible to receive additional financial aid through a compensation program.

A tough defense for those injured in a hit-and-run

Being injured in a hit-and-run accident takes a major toll on even the toughest of individuals. Along with physical injury and pain, victims may struggle with other things such as depression, financial hardship and an exhausting recovery. To make the process a bit easier to handle, victims of a hit-and-run accident may want to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney about their case.

Act of God or negligence?

We've probably all read a story about a medical emergency causing a catastrophic car accident. Sometimes, accidents that look like the result of negligence actually turn out to be caused by an unknown illness or condition. When this occurs, it may be referred to as an Act of God accident. Even though these conditions pose a real threat, it may be possible for negligent drivers to use an act of God defense in an attempt to avoid legal retaliation.
