Oklahoma City Motorcycle Accidents
Personal Injury Lawyers serving Oklahoma City and throughout Oklahoma
Motorcycle riders have a right to travel freely and in safety on the roads of Oklahoma.
Motorcycles are the most unforgiving and dangerous forms of motor vehicles on the road. The smaller size of a motorcycle makes them much more difficult for car and truck drivers to see.
If you've been injured in a motorcycle accident, we can help.
There were 7.1 million motorcycles on the road in 2007, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. With that many people enjoying the open road on motorcycles, car and truck drivers have no excuse not to expect to encounter them and have a duty to be cautious to respect their rights.
Because motorcycles do not provide their riders the protection that other vehicles do, often serious injuries result when collisions occur. Road hazards such as objects in the road or potholes are much more dangerous for motorcycles than for other vehicles.
Driving a motorcycle takes more physical ability and skill. An inexperienced rider can be a hazard to themselves and other riders. High speed "wobbling" accidents can occur when the front or rear wheels are out of alignment or due to manufacturing defects which can be the responsibility of the motorcycle dealers or manufacturers. Defective brakes can also be a dealer or manufacturing problem.
Motorcycle accident injuries can severely impact the quality and enjoyment of your life. The pain and inability to function normally can keep you not only from the things you need to do but also the things you enjoy and want to do. Medical bills, lost wages and other expenses can quickly add up.
You may not be able to work for a long time and financial troubles can develop. Doctors appointments and treatment can take months. The insurance adjusters can try to take advantage of the situation with early pressure to settle for much less than you deserve or may deny your claim totally.
James Self will give you the advice you need and will work to get you the money and the justice you deserve.
