What is the Law?
In Oklahoma every person who operates a motor vehicle must do so with reasonable care under the circumstances. This means that even if the speed limit is 65 mph, if it is dark and raining outside, a person can only go as fast as is reasonable under the circumstances. If a person is driving the speed limit in the snow and slides into your car, they cannot claim that they were acting reasonable. Rather, they are responsible for the personal injury to you and the property damage to your car because they were not acting with reasonable care under the circumstances when they caused the car accident.
What is “reasonable care under the circumstances” can be a complicated thing to figure out. That is why our Tulsa car accident attorneys can help you with your claim and make sure that you get everything you deserve.
