Oklahoma Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
In a report recently released by the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office (OHSO), it was stated that there were over 1,700 accidents in Oklahoma that involved motorcycles—with over 77% of riders being injured as a result of those collisions (approximately 1,350 victims). Statistics like these reinforce the dangers that motorcycle riders face whenever they are on our roads.
Needless to say, when a car accident involves a motorcycle, the motorcyclist is at a severe disadvantage. Riders are often seriously injured simply due to the lack of protection that a motorcycle offers – especially when compared to that of car or truck.
Here at the Edwards Law Firm, our motorcycle accident attorneys have the knowledge and experience to represent all those who have been injured in motorcycle wrecks in Oklahoma, Texas and Arkansas. We understand that complexities of personal injury lawsuits, and can help guide you past the obstacles that can arise during litigation.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
It’s important to note that approximately 3,000 people die each year due to motorcycle accidents in the United States. Here in our home state of Oklahoma, over 90 riders were killed in 2011 alone.
In more than 80 percent of collisions involving a motorcycle, the motorcyclist was not at fault, which illustrates that other motorists are just not aware of the riders that are on our roads.
While the injuries that motorcyclists can receive in crashes are often wide and varied, some typical injuries include (but are not limited to):
These crashes are typically caused by the negligence of another driver, a defective motorcycle or unsafe roadways or hazards.
In light of the above, it’s vital that riders be aware of their surroundings. Other motorists are often unaware that a rider is close by, and as such, riders need to practice safe riding tactics at all times.
