Oklahoma Distracted Driving Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
If a distracted driver has injured you or a loved one in a motorcycle accident, Abel Law Firm is here to help you get the compensation that you deserve. Distracted driving is any behavior that pulls the motorist’s attention away from the road, such as texting while driving, looking at a map, changing the radio station, talking on the phone, talking to another passenger, eating while driving, and more. Motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to distracted driving accidents because they don’t have the protection that a car or truck driver has in the event of a collision.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by a distracted driver, help is available to you. Medical bills, time spent away from work, and the pain and suffering can quickly become overwhelming. Abel Law Firm can help you make things right by getting you the compensation that you deserve from the person who injured you. Contact our experienced team of Oklahoma distracted driving motorcycle accident lawyers today at (405) 239-7046 for a free consultation.
Do I need an attorney?
The aftermath of a motorcycle accident can be overwhelming. Between recovering from injuries, missing work, and trying to pay for your many expenses, you likely don’t have time or energy to spare to deal with insurance companies and legal paperwork. An experienced motorcycle accident lawyer will take the legal matters off of your hands while you focus on what really matters – recovering from your injuries.
It can be tempting to try to represent yourself to save some money, especially in the case of distracted driving accidents where the responsibility seems to clearly fall on the other party. This is a very risky choice. The law is complicated and nuanced, even in distracted driving incidents, so attempting to handle your own case can be difficult. Because of this, an experienced personal injury lawyer is likely to earn you much higher compensation than you would be able to win on your own and ultimately save you money.
Why choose Abel Law Firm?
At Abel Law Firm, we believe you should not have to pay for the careless actions of a distracted driver. We will work tirelessly to ensure you receive the maximum possible compensation for your suffering so that you can get your life back on track. We have recovered millions of dollars for motorcycle accident victims during our combined 130 years of experience. We are ready to put our experience, knowledge, and determination to work for you.
Cases We Handle
Because motorcyclists are relatively exposed on the road, you are likely dealing with a multitude of consequences after your accident, including serious injuries and damage to your bike. When a distracted driver is responsible for these consequences, they should be the one to pay for your damages. Abel Law Firm can help you recover compensation for damages including:
- Medical expenses
- Property damage (your motorcycle)
- Lost wages, current and future
- Physical and emotional therapy
- Insurance payments
- Pain and suffering
A personal injury lawyer will be able to determine what compensation you qualify for after reviewing the facts of your case.
Another aspect of your accident that can impact your lawsuit is determining who is actually liable for your damages. In distracted driving cases, the responsible party seems obvious, but it’s not always so straightforward. Some exceptions include:
- Vehicles owned by the Federal or State government
- Vehicles bearing the name, symbol, or logo of a business or corporation
- Vehicles for sale by a licensed used car dealer
- All-terrain vehicles, utility vehicles, and off-road vehicles
- An employee who was on the clock during the accident
In these cases, the employer or owner of the vehicle might be liable for your damages, in addition to the distracted driver themselves. Nuances in insurance laws can also impact your claim. Personal injury lawyers understand these intricacies. We can avoid legal difficulties and recover the maximum amount possible for your damages, pain, and suffering.
What You Should Do After an Accident
There are some things you can do to help ensure you get the most compensation that you can from the distracted driver who caused your motorcycle accident. Make sure you keep track of all of your related expenses after your accident, including medical bills, repair costs, and wages lost from missing work. Of course, it’s vital to notify your insurance company about the accident and provide detailed accounts of all your damages. Then, contact the lawyers at Abel Law Firm as soon as you can. We can help you get compensation, but only if you let us know that you need our help.
Time is limited to file a claim after a motorcycle accident with a distracted driver. Oklahoma has a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury cases like motorcycle accidents. This law prevents anyone from suing for a personal injury two or more years after the injury. Don’t let your expenses pile up. Contact Abel Law Firm right away.
