Could 2018 bring stronger drinks and more drunk driving?

Oklahoma is not unlike other states in its punishment of drunk driving. What does actually set Oklahoma apart from the majority of the US is the ban on full-strength beers and wines in Oklahoma's convenience and grocery stores. Currently, no beer higher than 3.2 percent alcohol content can be sold on the shelves of such stores and sale is reserved for liquor stores and other highly regulated stores that open Monday through Saturday.

Negligent driver accountability in auto-pedestrian accidents

The chance of serious injuries or death in any accident involving a motor vehicle is high. When that accident involves a pedestrian, the chances increase dramatically. In the United States, pedestrian deaths caused by automobiles are on the rise. This is mostly attributed to the increase in the number of Americans who are walking as a means of transportation and exercise. Due to this rise in pedestrian accidents, state legislatures are toughening the laws regarding motorists yielding and stopping for pedestrians in hopes of decreasing the number of auto-pedestrian accident incidents.

When is a jackknifed truck accident a matter of negligence?

We have all likely heard about jackknifed semi-truck accidents. These not-so-common commercial truck accidents typically occur when a semi-truck drives on slippery pavement and cannot be controlled because the wheels have locked. This causes the truck to continue momentum forward and the trailer attached to it swings to one side. These jackknife accidents are a great danger to other drivers and have the potential to cause catastrophic loss. But they are not always a matter of negligence. Understanding conditions that may cause a semi-truck to jackknife can help injured individuals better understand if they have the right to recover damages.

Get the attention you deserve after your motorcycle crash

As a motorcyclist, you are especially vulnerable to catastrophic physical injury in the event of an accident. Even the most minor motorcycle accidents can result in significant loss and can take an incredible amount of time to recover from. A lengthy and exhaustive battle to recover can be frustrating and financially devastating. It is important for individuals injured in a motorcycle crash to retain quality representation with an attorney that will fight for their rights and for the fair compensation they deserve.
