Bicycle Accident Attorney for Oklahoma City Injury Victims
As a bicyclist, you have the same right to the road as a person driving a motor vehicle as long as you obey traffic laws. If you are hit by a car while driving legally on the right side of the road, you may be entitled to compensation.
At the law office of Joseph J. Reinke, our Oklahoma City bicycle accident attorneys represent people who have been injured due to the negligence of other parties. If you or a family member has been injured in an accident involving a car or truck, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your options.
Bicycle Accidents and Fault in Oklahoma
Many car-bicycle collisions occur because:
- The car passed the bicycle too closely
- The car was not watching for bicycles
- The car struck the bicycle from behind
In many cases, the driver of the motor vehicle will attempt to blame the accident on the bicycle rider. In Oklahoma, if the other driver can blame at least 50 percent of the fault of the accident on you, you cannot collect damages from the other driver's insurance company. For this reason it's important to collect and preserve evidence such as witness statements, vehicle damage and skid marks.
Our bike accident lawyers handle all personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, so until and unless our attorneys win a favorable judgment or settlement in your case, you will not have to pay attorney fees.
