Frequently Asked Questions About Motorcycle Accidents

  • What if I wasn’t wearing a helmet when I was in an accident?
    Oklahoma has a lenient set of motorcycle helmet safety laws. Only riders and passengers who are under 18 need to wear a helmet. However, wearing a motorcycle helmet is always a good idea, regardless of its legal requirement. Motorcycle helmets can dramatically reduce your chances of a brain injury or death in a crash. Helmets can also help keep your liability low. An insurance company could argue that you knowingly assumed the risk of worse injuries in case of a motorcycle accident by not wearing a helmet. Assumption of risk is one of the most common arguments insurers use to increase a claimant’s liability, which limits the compensation they can receive from the defendant.
  • Can I still get compensation if I was partially at fault for my motorcycle accident?
    A modified comparative negligence or fault law is used in Oklahoma to determine liability in motorcycle accidents and other civil claims. Under this legal rule, you can demand a financial recovery from another party that caused or contributed to your accident and injuries unless you are mostly liable for that same accident. In other words, if your liability for your motorcycle accident reaches 51%, then you will be barred from getting a recovery from other involved parties. Modified comparative negligence rules make it even more important to work with an attorney who knows how to keep your liability as low as possible as your claim progresses.
  • The other driver turned left in front of my motorcycle, and I hit them – who is at fault?
    Many motorcycle accidents each year happen when a driver turns left in front of an approaching motorcycle. Who is at fault when this happens? On one hand, the driver might have cut off the motorcyclist, but, on the other, the motorcyclist is the one who hit the driver. Evidence and investigations unique to each case will be necessary to determine who is at fault. Although, liability for left-turn accidents involving a driver and an approaching motorcyclist usually lands on the driver, who turns left without thoroughly checking for oncoming vehicles. Drivers look for the larger frames of cars and trucks, not the small shapes of motorcycles, so they can look at but not “see” a motorcyclist as they approach the intersection.
  • Is lane splitting legal in Oklahoma?
    No, lane splitting is not legal in Oklahoma. You should not ride in between lanes on a motorcycle or any other type of smaller motorized vehicle because it is unlawful and puts you in danger of being sideswiped by a driver who is not expecting your ride there. (Learn more in the Recommended Reading section on this page.)
  • No one else was involved in my motorcycle accident – could a third party be liable?
    If you were in a single-vehicle accident while riding your motorcycle, meaning no other party was involved in the crash, then it can be frustrating to be told that you caused the wreck when you know you did nothing wrong. The cause of your motorcycle accident might be the mistake of a third party you have not considered yet, like a parts manufacturer. For example, if your crash was caused by a brake failure or tire defect, then the maker of the defective part could be liable for your damages.
