Oklahoma City Intoxicated Driver Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by an intoxicated driver, Abel Law Firm is here to help you get the justice and compensation you deserve. The most obvious example of intoxicated driving is driving while drunk, but it also applies to intoxication caused by any other drug that can affect a person’s ability to operate a vehicle safely. Whether the drug in question was legal (like a sleeping pill) or illegal, if it impacts a person’s ability to drive, then it counts as intoxicated driving. Intoxicated driving is a reckless and negligent act that endangers everyone on the road. Motorcyclists are especially at risk because they don’t have the same sort of protection that drivers of passenger vehicles have.
If an intoxicated driver was at fault for you or a loved one’s injuries, they should be held responsible for their reckless actions. You should not be forced to emotionally, physically, and financially pay for their carelessness. Let Abel Law Firm help you get your life back on track by getting you the compensation you deserve. Call our experienced team of Oklahoma City intoxicated driver motorcycle accident lawyers today at (405) 239-7046 to schedule a consultation.

Cases We Handle
These cases can become very complicated very quickly. It can be difficult to know who precisely is at fault in different situations. Oklahoma is an at-fault state, meaning that courts will usually hold the intoxicated driver responsible. However, in some situations, this is not the case. If the accident occurred while the driver was on the clock, their employer might also be liable for your damages. Similarly, in some cases, the company/entity that owns the vehicle (rather than the driver) might be the party that is held responsible. This can 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
The party or parties responsible can be held liable for the damage that they cause, including both clear financial damage and intangible emotional damage. You may be entitled to compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Property damage
- Lost wages, current and future
- Physical and emotional therapy
- Insurance payments
- Pain and suffering
These expenses can add up quickly depending on the severity of the accident, and the guidance of an experienced lawyer from Abel Law Firm will help you get the maximum amount of recovery possible. The exact details of your particular case will determine who is liable for your damages and what kind of compensation you deserve. A determined and experienced motorcycle accident lawyer from Abel Law Firm will be able to guide you through this confusing process to make sure you get what you are owed.
What You Should Do After an Accident
There are a few things you should do after a motorcycle accident with an intoxicated driver to help ensure you get the maximum compensation possible. The first is to keep track of all your expenses, including medical bills, repair costs for property, and lost wages if you had to miss work because of your injuries. The second is to notify your insurance company of the accident and damage you suffered. The third is to call Abel Law Firm right away.
You need to act quickly if an intoxicated driver harmed you. While you wait, medical bills and other expenses will pile up and the time window you have to sue will close. Oklahoma has a two-year statute of limitations for personal injuries, meaning that if you do not sue within two years of being injured, then the courts will prevent you from recovering anything at all. The investigation process surrounding motorcycle accidents can be lengthy, so do not wait any longer to give us a call.
At Abel Law Firm, we are ready to help if you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by an intoxicated driver. The physical pain and emotional trauma inflicted upon you by another driver’s reckless and negligent actions should not go unpunished, and you do not have to tackle this tricky legal process alone.
