Oklahoma officials are reporting that an amazing number of car accidents and injuries have occurred the last two days due to the winter storm. According to newsok.com,
Since the blizzard hit, at least 81 injury accidents have been worked by the patrol, EMSA has responded to over 100 calls, and the Oklahoma State Department of Health has recorded 482 weather-related injuries, Ooten said. Officials are urging state residents to stay off the roads unless absolutely necessary. Highways and streets remain slick and hazardous at best or impassable at worst throughout Oklahoma, though authorities said conditions are slowly improving. Ooten said all Oklahoma interstates and turnpikes were opened Friday after the patrol responded to 362 wrecks and received more than 1,000 calls for assistance. The patrol closed several highways on Friday to clear wrecks blocking the roads.

Typically, insurance companies go into protective mode and will attempt to deny most claims as being unavoidable when in fact they are not. Remember, we offer a free consultation.
