Motorcycle Accidents in Oklahoma
Much like pedestrian or bicycle collisions, motorcycle accidents in Oklahoma are often fatal or seriously injurious, as there is generally very little protection in place for a rider at the time of impact. While it may be extremely difficult, it is terribly important for victims and their loved ones to understand that they may have substantial rights moving forward.
Our Oklahoma accident attorneys at McIntyre Law have devoted their careers to those who have suffered because of the negligent actions of another party or entity, such as a manufacturer. Many times, serious accidents are caused by other drivers, mechanical failures, and other reasons beyond the victims’ control. Such instances may shed the victim’s liability and end in an Oklahoma personal injury accident case that results in financial compensation for your injuries.
