Oklahoma City, OK (PRWEB) May 30, 2012
The Oklahoma auto accident lawyers at Atkins & Markoff, a law firm whose attorneys dedicate themselves to representing clients who have been injured in Oklahoma traffic accidents and in situations involving general negligence, hereby advise anyone who may have been injured in an Oklahoma car crash during Memorial Day weekend to take steps to protect their legal rights. The statistics relating to the number of injury-causing collisions that occur during this holiday weekend indicate that many people in the state will need to protect themselves as soon as possible.
Specifically, the statistics regarding Oklahoma auto accidents as recorded by the state reveal that on average, more than 100 crashes occur each day on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday of Memorial Day weekend. In 2011, there were a total of 423 Oklahoma auto accidents throughout the state that resulted in 7 fatalities. While this number has dropped from 587 crashes and 15 deaths during the 2008 Memorial Day weekend, there are still hundreds of people who need to protect their legal rights.
The Oklahoma car accident attorneys at Atkins & Markoff suggest that people who have been injured in a crash during this holiday weekend make sure to contact the police after the crash so that an official police report can be recorded regarding the accident at issue. In addition, the attorneys at the firm suggest that people who have been injured agree to receive a full medical evaluation so that the entire extent of the harm that they have suffered can be recorded. Finally, those who have been injured in a crash that was not their fault should seek the help of an Oklahoma auto accident lawyer.
The attorneys at Atkins & Markoff would also like to advise those who will be on the roads during the rest of the summer holiday season to exercise caution while they travel so that they can make the difference between a crash occurring and a collision being avoided.
