Motorcycle Accidents in Oklahoma
Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents are highly common and almost always result in motorcyclists receiving injuries. Injuries can range from severe, to catastrophic, to fatal. The reason motorcyclists are so susceptible to receiving injuries is that they’re bodies are exposed to the impact of vehicles. The only bodily protection motorcyclists wear is helmets, which doesn’t protect the rest of their bodies. Common injuries include brain damage, neck injuries, head injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and internal damage.
Once investigators determine the cause of the accident, the family of the deceased motorcyclist can pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. It’s unfortunate that a family lost their loved one, especially if the accident occurred because of another driver’s negligence. The liable driver should be responsible for covering funeral costs.
Because it’s likely that the other motorcyclist is suffering from injuries, a personal injury lawsuit can be filed with the help of a personal injury lawyer.
