Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Oklahoma
Motorcycle accidents in Oklahoma are often fatal as there is generally very little protection in place for a rider at the time of a collision. While it may be extremely difficult, it is important for bereaved family members to know that they may have substantial rights.
Our Oklahoma accident attorneys at McIntyre Law have devoted their careers to those who have suffered due to the actions of another party or other entity, such as a manufacturer. Many times, fatal accidents are caused by other drivers, mechanical failures, and other reasons beyond the victims’ control, which may be considered a case of wrongful death in Oklahoma.
