Bicycle Accidents In Oklahoma
Over 200 bicyclists are injured by motor vehicles annually across our state. Bicyclists are more susceptible to sustaining serious and life-altering injuries, like broken bones and spinal cord injuries.
Victims who are injured in these horrific incidents are often left to deal with overwhelming pain and suffering and stacking medical bills. Those harmed are often forced out of work for several weeks to tend to their injuries. In many cases, bicyclists are injured by drivers who are negligent while behind the wheel. Thankfully, those harmed can contact an Oklahoma car accident attorney to get justice and restitution for their injuries.
