Oklahoma Motorcycle Accident FAQs

Our answers to frequently asked questions are designed to assist injured motorcyclists in navigating these legal challenges.

What are common motorcycle accident injuries?

Common motorcycle accident injuries in Oklahoma include:

  • Head injuries: Even with a helmet, motorcycle riders may be susceptible to head injuries due to the lack of enclosed protection.
  • Road rash: This occurs when a rider slides across a road surface, causing severe abrasions, lacerations and scarring.
  • Broken bones: The force of a collision can often lead to multiple broken bones.
  • Spinal cord injuries: These devastating injuries can cause partial or complete paralysis, depending on the severity and location of the damage.
  • Leg and foot injuries: The lower extremities are vulnerable in motorcycle accidents, often sustaining crush injuries.

Although a motorcycle crash may be brief, the aftermath can have enduring consequences.

Is motorcycle lane splitting legal in Oklahoma?

No, motorcycle lane splitting is not legal in Oklahoma. It is illegal to pass other vehicles between lanes of traffic traveling in the same direction, regardless of whether the traffic is stopped or moving slowly. This applies to motorcycles, scooters, motorized bicycles and electric-assisted bicycles. However, only authorized emergency vehicles are exempt from this law.

Who is required to wear a helmet while riding a motorcycle in Oklahoma?

Oklahoma does not mandate helmets for all motorcyclists and passengers; it is not a universal helmet state. The state only requires riders and passengers who are under the age of 18 to wear helmets.

What should I do immediately after a motorcycle accident?

After a motorcycle accident:

  • Move to a safe location, if possible
  • Assess injuries and seek medical help
  • Call the police to report the incident
  • Exchange information with the other party involved
  • Document the scene with photos
  • Notify your insurance company

Since such moments can be confusing and make you unsure of what to do next, prioritize seeking legal counsel from an experienced motorcycle attorney. This is probably the most important step you can take to protect your interests following a motorcycle crash.
