Single Vehicle Accidents in Oklahoma
Tragically, a large number of single-car accidents in Oklahoma are caused by an error made by the driver of the car. Often times, single vehicle accidents occur when a driver is speeding, distracted, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, dangerous weather conditions or drowsy driving. There are instances where a single-vehicle accident occurs because of a defective part or product on the car or because of a poorly designed or maintained roadway.
Many of these accidents, which are often avoidable, end with fatalities or catastrophic injuries, as they are frequently caused by factors including speeding, drowsiness, impairment, and mechanical failure.
