Spinal Cord Injuries from Motorcycle Accidents

The incredible impact, and the torturous head and neck trauma from any Oklahoma Motorcycle Accident can cause severe, permanent injury to the spinal cord, resulting in paraplegia, quadriplegia or even death.

Motorcylists have only their helmet to protect them in the event they are struck by a car, truck or even another motorcyclist.  But, often the additional weight of the helmet, combined with the immense twisting forces from the impact can do irrepairable damage to anyone's back and spinal cord.

James Self and Self & Associates have been representing Oklahoma spinal cord injury victims for over 35 years, and have recovered millions of dollars in settlements for their clients, all across Oklahoma. If you've been involved in an accident that has resulted in a serious spinal injury, please contact Self and Associates anytime 24/7 for a free consultation.

Motorcycle Accidents in Oklahoma City

There are over seven million motorcycles in operation in the U.S., making it more important than ever for drivers of cars and trucks to be aware and share the road. While there is no question as to whether motorcyclists have the right to the same access as all other licensed drivers, motorcycles need special consideration from riders and drivers alike.

Motorcycle riders are not as protected by their vehicles, and may suffer much more serious injury when motorcycle accidents do happen. They are also far more likely to have serious problems due to road hazards. Riding takes far more physical ability and skill than driving, and the consequences for small mistakes are often much greater. Minor mechanical problems may be overlooked in many cars and trucks, but when a motorcycle has brake or alignment problems, the results can be catastrophic.

As a rider, it is imperative that you keep your motorcycle in tip-top condition, always wear a helmet, and follow all traffic safety laws, but the actions of other drivers and manufacturers will always have an effect on your safety. A motorcycle accident can have a serious and lengthy impact on your quality of life. Motorcycle accident fatalities are on the rise, and even the most conscientious rider may run into serious trouble due to a careless car or truck driver.

If you or a family member has suffered a serious injury or fatality in a motorcycle accident, a personal injury attorney may be able to help you. If you are in the Oklahoma City area, please contact Self & Associates for a free initial consultation.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles are popular modes of transportation, and have become even more so during recent years with the rising price of gasoline making efficient motorcycles more popular choices for people. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents are very dangerous, resulting in serious accidents, including brain injury,spine injury, serious abrasion, and amputation injury.

About three-quarters of motorcycle accidents are related to another vehicle (more than 80% are passenger cars). In 78% of fatal motorcycle accidents, the point of impact is at the front of the motorcycle. Most often, the vehicle turns into the path of the oncoming motorcycle. This is more likely when the car is making a left-hand turn in front of the motorcycle.

While only about a quarter of motorcycle accidents do not involve another vehicle, these accidents are serious, and preventable. Most single-bike accidents are due to rider inexperience on their bike. Most motorcycle accident victims reportedly had less than five months on this particular bike. However, a recent study suggests that motorcycle training may not reduce motorcycle accident risk. Perhaps the only way to gain experience is to be out on the road on your bike. It is important to be careful during your learning period to avoid suffering serious injury as a result of a motorcycle accident.

If you suffered a motorcycle accident injury due to the fault of another driver, an injury lawyer may be able to help you get compensation.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists do not have the same protection as drivers of other vehicles. If a motorcycle accident occurs, a motorcyclist does not have four metal walls surrounding him to add protection and take the brunt of the impact. Motorcyclists have the same rights to drive on the road as any other driver and deserve to have adequate room for driving in order to avoid a motorcycle accident.

There are many causes of motorcycle accidents. Inadequate roads with uneven lanes, potholes, or shallow shoulders can cause a motorcyclist to lose control of the motorcycle and swerve. An inexperienced motorcyclist can overcorrect or drive off the road. While a motorcyclist can become a distracted driverand easily cause an accident, the most common cause of motorcycle accidents are drivers of other vehicles.

Drivers of cars, trucks, and SUVs may tailgate or drive too close when passing a motorcycle and cause a very serious accident. Even an accident that would cause minor fender damage to another vehicle has the potential to cause severe personal injury, such as a brain injury or spinal cord injury, to a motorcyclist.

Many motorcycle accidents are caused by drivers of other vehicles not looking before chaning lanes or turning. Motorcycles are more difficult to see because of their slim profile so drivers of other vehicles often over look them and run them over or turn in to them.

Questions About Motorcycle Accidents

How important is insurance in a motorcycle accident?

The state of Oklahoma requires bikers to carry minimum liability insurance for their motorcycle. Failure to carry the minimum insurance can result in fines and penalties. Additionally, if you do not carry maximum coverage, you may have a difficult time collecting damages from a motorcycle accident.

If I don’t have insurance on my motorcycle, can I still sue the driver who hit me?

Your lack of insurance does not prohibit you from filing a claim against the driver responsible for your injuries. It may, however, result in fines and even a license suspension. Even though insurance seldom offers a settlement worth taking, you are legally required to carry it.

If the driver who hit me doesn’t have insurance, can I still collect damages?

Collecting money from an uninsured or under-insured motorist can be complex. It is in your best interest to carry uninsured and under-insured motorcycle insurance. With this coverage, along with an aggressive motorcycle accident attorney like James Self on your side, you are much more likely to receive full compensation for your injuries.

Is an attorney necessary when I’ve been in a motorcycle accident?

You should always consult with an attorney when dealing with insurance companies after a motorcycle accident. Insurance companies are infamous for trying to prevent claimants from collecting adequate compensation. James Self has decades of experience negotiating with insurance companies to help his clients obtain the full amount of compensation they deserve.
