Many Oklahoma travelers are at risk for accidents merely because there are negligent drivers sharing the road. Regardless of how alert, cautious and obedient to traffic laws you are when you get behind the wheel, there's not much you can do about another driver's choices. Being struck by a distracted or drunk driver when one least expects it can turn an otherwise uneventful trip into a tragic situation.
A car accident can change your life in an instant, and some Oklahoma victims may find that they never fully recover from their physical and emotional injuries. The aftermath of an accident can truly be overwhelming, especially if you were in a work vehicle at the time of your crash.
When you get injured in a car accident, it's never easy coping with the medical and financial implications. Whether it's a back injury or other type of injury, recovery can be long.

Older, smaller drivers are more at risk for being injured in a crash because of one contributing factor: the force of the seatbelt wasn't designed for their body type and size, a study finds.
