Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents can lead to multiple factors, often leading to devastating consequences. Some common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Negligent Drivers: Motorcycles are inherently less visible than larger vehicles, making them more susceptible to accidents caused by drivers who fail to notice or disregard their presence on the road.
- Distracted Driving: Using mobile phones or other distractions while driving can lead to accidents involving motorcycles.
- Unsafe Lane Changes: When motorists fail to check their blind spots or signals improperly, they may collide with a motorcycle sharing the same lane.
- Speeding: Excessive speed reduces a driver's ability to react to sudden changes in traffic conditions, potentially leading to accidents involving motorcycles.
- Driving Under the Influence: Impairing a driver's judgment and reflexes significantly increases the risk of motorcycle accidents.
- Poor Road Conditions: Uneven road surfaces, potholes, and debris pose more significant dangers to motorcyclists than larger vehicles.
- Weather Conditions: Slippery roads due to rain, ice, or snow can lead to loss of control for motorcyclists.
What is the Statute of Limitations for Motorcycle Accidents in Oklahoma?
The statute of limitations in Oklahoma is generally two years from the accident date. It is crucial to take legal action within this time frame, as failing to do so might result in your right to seek compensation forfeiture.
