Individuals who are driving under the influence pose a serious risk to everyone on the road. Impairment reduces the ability to properly operate a vehicle, and as a result, many car accidents result. Even if individuals are lucky enough to survive such an incident, any injuries suffered could cause considerable difficulties.
It was recently reported that a single-car accident took place in Oklahoma. Authorities believed that the driver of the vehicle was drunk at the time of the crash. The man driving reportedly lost control, and the car slid before overturning and colliding with a power pole. The driver was ejected from the vehicle, and there was at least one passenger also involved in the crash.
The driver was treated for the injuries he suffered and released from the hospital. The passenger, however, was more seriously injured. She suffered injuries to her head and arm as well as internal injuries. She was still hospitalized at the time of the report, though it was noted that she was in stable condition. Additional information relating to the incident may be available at a later time.
Because the passenger was seriously injured in this Oklahoma crash, she may wish to file a personal injury claim against the driver considered at fault. If successful, this claim could allow her to gain compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering and other permissible damages. She — and other individuals similarly affected by car accidents — may wish to find out more information on this option and how it could potentially suit the circumstances.
