Truck and car accidents are happening more regularly than we think, especially in Oklahoma.
Motor vehicle accidents may occur due to negligent driving. According to Annual United States Road Crash Statistics, roughly 37,000 people die in road crashes annually.
If a truck driver is driving erratically, then they may end up harming you or fellow drivers on the road. Identify whether these negligent truck drivers are merging without signaling their indicators and making unsafe lane changes. Observe whether these drivers are tailgating other vehicles in their respective lane. See whether the driver is swerving in their lane.
This may indicate that the drivers are sleep deprived and fatigue. The driver may have been drinking and may not have a vigilant eye on the road. This may result in them driving aimlessly, which can be dangerous for other drivers. The truck driver may not see your car approaching, and if you are not careful, you may end up in an accident which can cause serious injury to you or a loved one.
For your safety, you may consider staying clear of the negligent driver and switching lanes. If you do not keep a safe distance, you will not be able to avoid a collision and may be severely injured. Your injuries may include neck, back, and head injuries. You should have your injuries treated by a physician. If you fail to have your injuries treated in a timely manner, then it may cause more discomfort and may cause a permanent disability.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a reckless truck driver and needs long-term care, you may want to consult with an experienced lawyer. They can help you further with your case and get you the compensation you deserve.
