Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) September 29, 2013
Responding to the news of a recent rollover accident that left one dead and another injured, Tulsa car accident lawyer Hansen Dirani said today it’s crucial for all drivers to exercise caution behind the wheels of their vehicles.
According to News On 6 (“Sequoyah County Man Dies In Possible Alcohol-Related Crash,” August 17), police said they believe speed and alcohol might have been factors in a fatal mid-August rollover accident that claimed the life of a 24-year-old driver and seriously injured a passenger.
“While the cause of this tragic accident is under investigation, it’s vital for drivers to think about the consequences of their actions and act responsibly on Oklahoma roadways. This means obeying posted speed limits, avoiding driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, and driving free of distractions such as cell phones and other technological devices. Even the smallest mistake could result in a catastrophic accident,” said Dirani, who represents victims of negligence and families whose loved ones were killed in accidents.
News On 6 reports that the accident occurred after the vehicle approached a sharp curve at an unsafe rate of speed. The vehicle then struck a culvert, crashed into a tree and overturned, according to the story.
In addition, News On 6 said that investigating troopers suspect alcohol to have been a possible factor in the crash. The driver died at the scene of the accident, News On 6 reported, and the passenger was transported to an area hospital with head and torso injuries.
“We have seen first-hand the devastating impact of accidents involving speeding, driving recklessly, or operating under the influence of alcohol. Victims and their families often face deep financial and emotional losses when they are coping with catastrophic injuries or the loss of a loved one,” said Dirani, an auto accident attorney in Tulsa. “Personal injury lawyers can protect the rights of victims and their families. Attorneys can help them not only pursue the compensation they need, but also send a message that careless behavior on our roads will not be tolerated.”
