MICHAEL REHM - (209) 490-5049


Oakdale is known as the “Cowboy Capital of the West,” a place where rodeos and ranches still thrive. Visitors can learn about the past at the Oakdale Cowboy Museum and the Tulloch Mill Ruins. Present-day attractions include the Chocolate Festival and boutique shopping.

With a rich heritage and popular attractions, Oakdale draws tourists. Traffic leads to collisions. That might explain why Oakdale has such a high rate of injury accidents.

Oakdale Traffic Accidents

California's Office of Traffic Safety reports that Oakdale had 101 traffic accidents that caused injuries or death in 2019. The OTS includes Oakdale in a group of 103 California cities of similar size. After adjusting for population and miles driven, the OTS determined that Oakdale had the 17th highest traffic accident injury rate of those 103 cities.

Only 4 of the Oakdale traffic accident injuries involved pedestrians. Fortunately, none of those victims were under the age of 16 or older than 65. The OTS ranked Oakdale CA 57th in the category of pedestrian injuries, about average for a California city of its size.

Oakdale CA Motorcycle and Bicycle Accidents

Four Oakdale traffic accident injuries involved motorcycle riders. While motorcycle riding in popular in Stanislaus County, motorcycle collisions are more likely to take place on rural highways. Oakdale nevertheless had the 23rd highest rate of motorcycle accidents among 103 comparable California cities.

Only one Oakdale traffic accident injury involved a bicycle rider. Oakdale ranked 79th, suggesting that the city is relatively safe for bicyclists.

Oakdale DUI Accidents

Alcohol was a factor in fourteen of Oakdale's 101 traffic accidents. The OTS gave Oakdale the15th highest rate of alcohol-involved collision injuries of 103 comparable California cities.

Oakdale's relatively high percentage of DUI accidents may be due to relatively lax DUI enforcement. The OTS determined that Oakdale had the 68th highest DUI arrest rate of 103 similar cities.

Oakdale Speeding Accidents

Other than DUI, speeding is a primary factor in Oakdale traffic accidents. The OTS reports that twenty-seven of Oakdale's 101 injury accidents were speed related. Only five of 103 comparable cities had a higher rate of speed-related collisions.

Oakdale Personal Injury Lawsuits

Most claims for traffic accident injuries are settled without filing a lawsuit. Because it is easy to lose the right to make a claim, accident victims should be aware of their rights and responsibilities after they are injured in a traffic accident. Oakdale Auto Accident Lawyer Michael Rehm can help Oakdale accident victims take all necessary steps to recover compensation for their injuries.

When a claim for injuries in an Oakdale accident does not settle, the Accident Attorney Michael Rehm will file suit in Stanislaus County Superior Court. The case will be heard at the City Towers Courthouse at 801 10th Street in Modesto.

Each year in Stanislaus County, about 400 motor vehicle accident victims file lawsuits for injury compensation. About the same number of older lawsuits are resolved. In 2020, only four the lawsuits that were resolved went to trial. Almost all the others settled, usually within one year after they were filed.
