Fatal Bicycle Accidents in Oklahoma
A bicycle accident in Oklahoma can quickly result in catastrophic or fatal injuries, particularly because there is zero protection in place for a cyclist at the time of impact. Furthermore, negligent drivers who engage in excessive speed, distracted driving, driving while intoxicated, and drowsy driving, among other reckless actions, tend to increase the severity of damages. While it may be difficult, it is important for the bereaved family to know that they may have substantial rights at this time.
