Oklahoma City Drunk Driving Accident Attorney
Negligent and Reckless Drivers in Oklahoma City
A drunk driver whose reaction time has been greatly impaired because of alcohol is not only a danger to himself/herself, but a danger to all other cars, motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians on the road. Collisions with other drivers or pedestrians can cause death and serious injuries and this is especially true when the collision is caused by a drunk driver whose impairment inhibits him/her from safely operating the vehicle under their control.
Fatality car accidents involving a drunk driver occur every hour in the U.S. Oftentimes, it is not the drunk driver who loses their life. Drunk driving does not always occur on the road either; drunken boat operators create a large threat to skiers, swimmers and other boats as well. Oklahoma state law says that anyone who has a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or higher, is considered intoxicated and they are not only putting themselves at risk, but other innocent drivers as well. Do you need an attorney for a drunk driving car accident in Oklahoma? Our Oklahoma City car accident attorneys can help you hold that drunk driver responsible for their actions.
DUI & Injury Charges
Were you hit and injured by a drunk driver? Was a loved one permanently injured or even killed by a driver who was operating their vehicle under the influence of alcohol? The serious injuries that are often sustained by those who have survived a drunk driving accident can take years to recover from, and both physical and emotional trauma often accompany the recovery process. As the victim of this kind of accident, you owe it to yourself to take legal action and you should do so sooner rather than later. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to make a valid claim of this nature.
Searching for a lawyer for a drunk driving accident in Oklahoma?
