A car accident that took place in Oklahoma on New Year’s Eve could lead to legal action after a second individual involved recently died. Reports stated that after suffering head trauma in the incident, an 18-year-old girl died two weeks after the crash. The accident was reported as having involved a drunk driver.

Apparently, a 37-year-old woman was driving, and her two daughters and the 18-year-old girl — who had previously lived with the family as an exchange student — were passengers. Their SUV was rear-ended by another vehicle that had been traveling at speeds over 100 mph before the crash. Alcohol was a suspected factor. The driver of the SUV and the teenage girl were ejected from the vehicle during the collision.

The incident resulted in the woman suffering fatal injuries at the time of the crash. Her 4-year-old daughter was treated and released from the hospital, and her 9-year-old daughter was in critical condition after suffering head trauma. She was later released from the hospital. The teen also suffered a head injury, and she unfortunately succumbed to her injuries recently.

If drivers fail to operate their vehicles in a safe manner, they could cause serious accidents. In many cases, drivers and passengers involved in crashes suffer head trauma, broken bones and other severe injuries that could potentially prove fatal. In the event that a person is seriously injured or killed, civil claims could be warranted.

Legal action could stem from a recent accident that took place in Oklahoma. Reports stated that three individuals were involved in the two-car collision that occurred when the driver of a vehicle heading west crossed the center line into a no-passing zone and collided head on with an eastbound vehicle. There were two individuals in the westbound car, and the driver was the sole occupant of the second vehicle.

The incident resulted in the driver of the westbound car suffering fatal injuries. His passenger suffered injuries to his head as well as internal injuries. The driver of the second car was taken from the scene due to a leg injury. Emergency crews had to rescue the passenger of the first vehicle and the driver of the second car after they had become trapped.

Many individuals may be minding their own business when they are unexpectedly involved in serious events. Some parties may even be on their own property when they suddenly find themselves injured due to the actions of another individual. If head trauma or other severe injuries result from an accident, there may be cause to seek compensation.

One man in Oklahoma may be looking for such restitution after a recent crash. Reports stated that the man was on the porch of his home when a car crashed through a fence, hit a parked vehicle and proceeded to collide with the man and his porch. The driver of the car was reportedly under the influence at the time of the incident and claimed to have been speeding, which resulted in her losing control of the car.

The man suffered serious injuries to his head and leg as a result of the incident. The driver of the car was also reported as having suffered a head injury. She was taken into custody and later released on a $5,000 bond. Results for a blood-alcohol test were apparently not available at the time of the report.

Being a pedestrian can be a good way to get exercise, but it could also put individuals at risk if they are walking close to a roadway. If a vehicle veers from the road, pedestrians could be hit. Such an accident could result in catastrophic injury. After this type of incident, filing a civil lawsuit may be appropriate.

It was recently reported that a serious accident took place in Oklahoma. Reports indicated that a 19-year-old woman was walking along a roadway with a 10-month-old child when a vehicle left the roadway. The vehicle, which was carrying a man and a woman, struck the pedestrians as a result. The incident occurred just before 10 p.m.

The 19-year-old pedestrian suffered fatal injuries as a result of the accident. The child was transported from the scene by helicopter, and at the time of the report, he was reported as being in critical condition. The two individuals in the vehicle were not injured. Authorities were continuing to investigate when the report was posted, but it was noted that weather was not a factor.

A serious event was recently reported as having taken place in Oklahoma. The incident involved a car and pedestrians, and the collision resulted in catastrophic injury. Reports stated that a 21-year-old man was walking with his girlfriend when his ex-girlfriend — who was driving the vehicle — came up to them. They apparently argued, and afterward, the couple walked away from the road and into a grassy area.

The driver then drove the car off of the road in order to follow the two individuals. She went around bushes and into the grass at speeds that caused her vehicle to come off the ground. The vehicle then collided with the 25-year-old woman who had been walking with the man. The victim went underneath the car. She was transported from the scene, but she died from her injuries.

The driver of the car left the scene, but authorities located her at her home. She was taken into custody and is facing charges for first-degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon and other allegations. At the time of the report, she was still in custody on bond.

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.

One family in Oklahoma may soon be considering their legal options after a recent death. Reports stated that a 19-month-old boy suffered head trauma that proved fatal. The young child was reportedly hit on the head, which resulted in his suffering a cracked skull and subsequent brain injury. The injury apparently occurred due to the action of an adult.

A 35-year-old man has been accused in the boy’s death, and that man is currently facing charges for first degree murder. Details on how the injury was suffered were not given in the report. It was also unclear how the man was potentially related to the child, but it was speculated that the man was the boyfriend of the child’s mother.

Police were informed of the incident, apparently after the child had been taken for treatment of the the head trauma. They were called to an area hospital, and soon after, the child was flown to another medical center. However, his injuries proved fatal, and the man was taken into custody as a result. Additional information regarding the incident may become available at a later time.

When a driver pulls into the path of another vehicle, it is likely that a collision will occur. When such crashes involve motorcycles, these motorcycle accidents could leave less-protected travelers with serious injuries with which they must contend. In many cases, those injuries could result in pain and suffering as well as financial difficulties that may warrant a civil claim against the driver considered at fault.

One man in Oklahoma may explore such an option after recently being involved in a crash. Reports stated that the 26-year-old man was riding his motorcycle north when a vehicle pulled out of a convenience store parking lot and into his path. As a result, the motorcyclist collided with the driver’s side of the car.

Though the man was wearing a helmet at the time, he still suffered critical injuries. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment. The driver of the car suffered minor injuries and was reported as being an 81-year-old woman. Authorities are continuing to investigate the incident to determine what may have contributed to the crash and whether charges may be necessary.

Certain types of construction work can raise added worker safety concerns. One such type of work is work involving excavation and trenching. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the death rates connected to excavation work are considerably larger than the rates connected to general construction work.

When it comes to the dangers of trenching and excavation operations, a lot of focus goes to cave-ins. This is understandable, given the considerable harm these types of accidents cause.

However, it is important to not forget that cave-ins are not the only harmful accidents that can happen in relation to trenching and excavation. Examples of other types of accidents that sometimes occur during trenching and excavation operations include:

Filing a personal injury lawsuit can be a stressful and confusing situation. After all, people in Tulsa filing a personal injury lawsuit have been injured in some way. Not only are they recovering from a physical injury or illness, but they may also be emotionally scarred from the event that caused the injury. Moreover, the costs of dealing with such injuries and the aftermath of the event that caused them can be significant.

In addition to that, most people have very little experience with the litigation process. It can help to know what to expect. The following is a brief overview of the litigation process. Keep in mind that each individual’s situation is unique so not everyone’s case will follow this exact chronology.

First, the plaintiff has the defendant served with a complaint and summons. A complaint explains the reason and grounds upon which the plaintiff is suing.
