Pedestrian Accidents In Oklahoma
Numerous pedestrians are injured in automobile accidents across Oklahoma each year. Statistics show that 28 pedestrians lost their lives in Oklahoma accidents during 2016 alone. Pedestrians involved in motor vehicle accidents are at an increased risk for sustaining catastrophic injuries, like traumatic brain injuries, that require extensive medical treatment and therapy.
Victims injured in pedestrian accidents are not only forced to deal with overwhelming pain, but they are required to go through extensive treatments that cost thousands of dollars. Having to pay extensively for medical treatment while remaining out of work to recover is extremely challenging. In some cases, accident victims are entitled to compensation from those at-fault, which can help to alleviate some of the financial burdens victims and their families face in the aftermath of pedestrian-involved car accidents.
