The wrongful death of a loved one can be a product of several different issues, including an auto accident, product malfunction, workplace mishap, unsafe premises or more. Moreover, in many cases, the accident leading up to a fatal loss is unanticipated by those close to the victim. The good news is that when negligence strikes and a loved one is lost to a deadly, unexpected event, those close to the deceased can pursue restitution for what has happened – regardless of what caused the death to occur.

It is important to recognize that wrongful death cases are very multifaceted and complex. As a family member struggles with emotional repercussions of deadly accident, he or she must also confront economic or financial challenges, as well as standard legal consequences associated with a fatality.

The firm prides itself in representing the interests of families in these cases throughout Oklahoma.

In fact, practitioners of the firm have years of experience with fatal accidents, and they know what it’s like to deal with the intricacies of the Oklahoma court system. Despite the dire context of a legal matter involving death, the firm has successfully achieved solid results in cases for individuals faced with tragic loss.

Drunk driving continues to be a serious problem on our nation’s roads. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 28 people die each day as a result of DUI accidents.

NerdWallet recently used data available from the NHTSA and quotes from insurers to compare the per capita rate of alcohol-impaired accidents with the increased cost of insurance following a DUI conviction. There was a correlation between lower insurance rate increases in six of the top ten cities with the highest per capita fatal drunk driving crashes.

Unfortunately, Tulsa, Oklahoma, ranks number four on a national list of ten cities for the highest rate of alcohol-related accidents per capita. A driver is more likely to meet a drunk driver in Tulsa than in San Francisco, California.
