Oklahoma Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Fighting For Injury Victims
Motorcycle accident victims rely on Lawter & Associates to help them make things right
Motorcycle accidents in Oklahoma often result in serious or even fatal injuries. That's because motorcyclists have little protection against other vehicles crashing into them. Worst of all, motorcyclists who are involved in collisions often get blamed for causing car accidents.
The truth can often be quite different. In reality, other drivers in many cases cause accidents involving motorcycles. But insurance companies know that juries typically have a bias against motorcycle riders, which makes these claims complicated. Motorcycle accident victims need someone who understands motorcycle accidents and has a strong track record of success. Contact Lawter & Associates, PLLC.
Our experienced Oklahoma City personal injury lawyers can work with you and make sure you receive the compensation you rightfully deserve. We work hard so you can focus on what really matters - your recovery. Expect more. Contact us today.
What types of motorcycle accidents does Lawter & Associates handle?
We handle a wide range of motorcycle accidents at our law firm. Some of the most common types of cases we deal with include:
- Rear-end motorcycle accidents - These accidents often occur when drivers fail to leave enough space between their vehicles and a motorcycle in front of them.
- Left-turn motorcycle accidents - When drivers make a left turn, they often fail to see motorcycles beside them or coming from the other direction.
- Head-on motorcycle accidents - One of the worst types of motorcycle accidents we handle at Lawter & Associates, PLLC.
- U-turn motorcycle accidents - When drivers make U-turns, they often don't look for motorcyclists behind them or heading in the opposite direction. Either way, U-turn motorcycle accidents can be seriously and sometimes even fatal.
What are the common causes of motorcycle accidents in Oklahoma?
Motorcycle accidents happen for many reasons. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Distracted drivers - Many drivers are more focused on everything but the road around them. They're busy texting, reading a GPS, changing a radio station or engaging in other activities that distract them from driving. As a result, accidents often happen.
- Speeding drivers - Speeding remains one of the leading causes of motorcycle accidents. When someone drives too fast, they often don't have time to stop, resulting in a serious high-speed motorcycle accident.
- Inattentive drivers - Many drivers claim they "didn't see" a motorcyclist before crashing into the rider. That's no excuse. Drivers need to be responsible to avoid motorcycle collisions.
- Drunk drivers - Drinking and driving remains a major source of serious motorcycle accidents in Oklahoma. Many drivers under the influence of alcohol collide into motorcyclists and cause serious accidents.
