Suffering any type of injury in a car accident can be a jarring experience. From bumps and bruises to lacerations and fractures, the types of injuries sustained can vary from minor to severe. In cases in which serious injuries result, individuals may have cause to seek compensation for pain and suffering, as well as medical expenses that result from attending to those injuries.
One family in Oklahoma may be currently considering legal options after being involved in a recent crash. Reports stated that an 18-year-old woman was driving a vehicle with her 6-year-old brother and 1-year-old sister inside when the collision took place. According to the young woman, a police vehicle did not stop at a stop sign, and as a result, the police car crashed into her vehicle.
The young woman was apparently injured in the incident, but details regarding those injuries were not given. The young boy suffered cuts and bruises to his head, and the 1-year-old child suffered a skull fracture. At the time of the report, police were investigating to determine the factors that may have contributed to the incident.
The family involved in this serious Oklahoma accident has already announced plans to consult an attorney. Therefore, it is likely the family members are considering filing a personal injury claim in order to seek compensation for medical bills relating to the treatment of the fractures and other resulting injuries, as well as other damages stemming from the crash. Information on filing this type of claim could help them — and other individuals injured in similar crashes — determine whether pursuing legal action could be right for their circumstances.
