Oklahoma Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle riders are in an exclusive position on the road. They enjoy the freedoms that come riding a motorcycle, but they are often exposed to dangers not met other motorists. The lack of any protective barriers between a motorcycle and the road, as well as the difficulty that motorists may experience in anticipating and seeing a motorcycle, leave riders prone to serious injury in the event of an accident.
