Accidents Caused by Distracted and Reckless Drivers
Justice for Oklahoma victims of distracted and reckless drivers
In our hyper-connected society, too many people are unwilling to disconnect and focus on driving. That does not mean they are not responsible for their reckless behavior. If you were injured in an accident caused by a distracted or reckless driver — or lost a loved one — you deserve compensation for your medical care, lost wages, pain and suffering and more.
The dedicated attorneys at Ryan Bisher Ryan & Simons in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma defend the rights of the victims of distracted and reckless drivers. We treat our clients with the utmost compassion and consideration while ensuring that they receive what they need now and into the future.
Distracted driving can be deadly
Every day in this country, more than nine people are killed and 1,060 are injured in crashes involving a distracted driver. Distractions include cell phones, text messages, emails, refreshments, passengers, adjusting the radio, getting directions from a navigation system and more. Young people are particularly at risk. Distracted driving teen fatalities are on the rise as more die from texting while driving than from drunk driving. When these young distracted drivers cause auto accidents, the others involved— including their own passengers — can suffer horrific injuries or even death.
If you lost a loved one in an accident with a distracted driver, the attorneys at Ryan Bisher Ryan & Simons can bring a wrongful death suit on your behalf. Although no amount of money can make up for the loss of someone near and dear, punitive damages may keep that driver from injuring anyone else.
Aggressive, reckless driving and speeding — a scourge on our roads
Aggressive, reckless driving behaviors include speeding, running red lights, failing to yield, following too closely, passing improperly, tailgating, flashing headlights, weaving through traffic and more. Driving too fast for conditions or racing is a factor in almost one third of all traffic fatalities. Speeding cars are involved in more accidents and as speeds get higher, crashes result in worse injuries.
Oklahoma is among the top ten states with the highest incidence of aggressive driving deaths. If you were injured as a result of the negligence of an aggressive driver, you have the right to be compensated for your injuries. We believe that aggressive drivers should be held accountable. Let us help you get the damages you deserve to get your life back on track.
