Arnold & Itkin LLP Attorneys Caj Boatright, Alison Baimbridge, and Roland Christensen recently filed suit on behalf of an Oklahoma man who lost his life while attempting to cross a road. The man was crossing the street, within the boundaries of a crosswalk, when a commercial driver failed to yield. Witnesses stated that our client waited until it was his turn to cross the street when he was struck and killed by the rapidly accelerating vehicle. The defendant was cited by law enforcement for failing to yield to a pedestrian.
Those who drive vehicles have a responsibility to share the road with pedestrians and preserve their wellbeing, especially when operating a commercial vehicle. When drivers fail to utilize caution, innocent people pay for it with their lives. It is unacceptable for a pedestrian to be killed due to the negligence of a driver on the road.
The wrongful death attorneys at Arnold & Itkin LLP are proud to fight for Oklahoma citizens who have lost their lives due to the irresponsibility of another person. We look forward to fighting on the behalf of our client and his grieving family.
The case was filed in Oklahoma County, Oklahoma.
