For over 35 years, our Oklahoma Distracted Driver Accident Injury Law Firm has successfully represented and recovered millions of dollars for our clients who have been injured by a distracted driver, as well as other personal injury clients.

In Oklahoma, and America in general, there are far too many opportunities for distraction whle driving that can endanger us, our passengers and other drivers and pedestrians. Drunk drivers and driving while fatigued have always been a serious and dangerous problem, but now technology has created even more distractions that can lead to deadly results.

Distracted Driving Accident Lawyers Oklahoma City

Smart phone use, and in-car entertainment systems, especially calling and texting, result in total distraction for short periods. However, as we all know, a car or truck moving down the road, at even a moderate rate of speed, travels a great distance in just a few seconds. A distraction of just a short period of time can lead to running a stop light, crossing a center line or striking a pedestrian.

There are also a great many other distractions that can lead to serious injuries or even death. Changing the radio station or putting in a DVD , eating while driving or spilling drinks, crying children, or horse play by young drivers. All are actions that ideally should not happen while driving but are all too common.

Whether you are a pedestrian, riding a bicycle or motorcycle, a passenger or the driver of another vehicle a distracted driver is a danger to you and your loved ones. If you or a family member has been injured by a distracted driver it could mean medical bills, lost wages and a long period of pain and frustration.

You can be overwhelmed emotionally, physically and financially. We know how difficult a time this can be because we have handled thousands of motor vehicle accident cases.
