Oklahoma City Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Protecting the rights of the injured in Oklahoma
The Oklahoma City motorcycle accident lawyers of Cunningham & Mears assist motorcyclists who are injured in accidents caused by the negligence of others throughout Oklahoma. Because of the small size of motorcycles, they are often not noticed by inattentive drivers. Since motorcycles are not as well protected as passenger cars, trucks and other vehicles, motorcyclists often suffer serious injuries and fatalities in accidents. Our lawyers use years of knowledge and experience to help you obtain a full and fair recovery for your injuries.
Causes of motorcycle accidents
At Cunningham & Mears, we are highly qualified to assist you in recovering compensation from an insurance company or in a personal injury lawsuit when you are injured because of an accident caused by driver negligence, negligent road design, defective motorcycles or defective motorcycle parts. Driver negligence by both car and motorcycle drivers is one of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents. We can help you recover compensation by identifying any of the possible causes of your accident, including:
Oklahoma helmet laws help minimize injuries
Oklahoma helmet laws require motorcyclists and passengers under age 18 to wear helmets when riding. According to the head injury by 69 percent and the risk of death by 37 percent. Failure to wear a helmet to protect yourself while on a motorcycle is one of the most common causes of injury and death in motorcycle accidents. Our attorneys recommend wearing a helmet even if you are not required by law in order to protect yourself from serious or even fatal brain injuries.
Seek legal assistance early to protect your rights
Unfortunately, motorcyclists have a reputation for reckless driving and are often blamed by other drivers for causing accidents because of lane splitting, speeding or other negligence. If you were in a motorcycle accident, it is essential to contact an accident attorney immediately to protect your rights. Our attorneys fully investigate each crash and help to preserve valuable evidence and witness testimony. Even if you were partly at fault, we can help you recover some compensation under Oklahoma’s modified comparative fault system as long as your fault is less than 50 percent.
