Any Oklahoma motor vehicle accident can result in catastrophic injuries. The only difference between motorcycle accidents and other Oklahoma traffic accidents is that this type of accident often leads to more serious injuries because a rider's body is exposed to numerous elements. Motorcyclists often sustain head injury and broken bones following a motorcycle accident. Recovering from these injuries may take a long period of time before the injured person returns to pre-injury health. During the recovery period, the motorcycle accident victim may also incur financial injury due to medical expenses and lost wages.
Many Oklahoma residents choose to ride motorcycles, whether just to and from work or school or to enjoy longer trips. For enthusiasts, motorcycles provide excitement and an exhilarating sense of freedom. They choose motorcycles even though most of them know that being on a motorcycle is more dangerous than being in a car, because they are exposed to the world and thus more prone to being severely injured in the event of an accident.
Cell phones are a wonderful way to keep up with friends, family members and coworkers throughout the day, whether they are in Oklahoma or somewhere else in the country. Unfortunately, these devices also can be a problem for anyone driving a vehicle. One 42-year-old driver may be learning this fact the hard way, following a motorcycle accident on the Broken Arrow Expressway in Tulsa.
Oklahoma residents know the perils of drunken driving. Howeverr, driving under the influence of drugs can be just as deadly when it comes to motorcycle accidents. As a case in Tulsa County shows, the offense not only can lead to charges against a negligent party but also serious injuries to riders.
