Boating is a popular pastime in Oklahoma City. Whether it’s on Lake Hefner, Lake Draper, Lake Overholser or the Oklahoma River, the fun you can enjoy on area waterways comes with the risk of serious injury and even death. If you’ve been injured in a boating accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
