Motorcyclists really must be commended for enduring the kind of circumstances that they endure. In many instances, they are treated as second-class citizens on the road, either ignored or disrespected by the larger motor vehicles that are supposed to be sharing the road. On top of this unfair treatment, motorcyclists almost always suffer more in an accident, even if a motorcycle accident is caused by the negligent driving of the other, larger vehicle. Motorcyclists need to know that somebody is on their side, willing to fight for them if they are victims of unfair treatment.
One such motorcyclist who has recently suffered from this imbalance of the road was a man from Tulsa, Oklahoma. As the biker turned into a Red Lobster, another vehicle struck him. The victim was in critical condition as he was transported to the hospital, where he later died. There was no word on what injuries, if any, the other driver suffered.
There are many questions left in the wake of this accident, perhaps the most important of which is who was at fault. While the report indicates that the other vehicle struck the motorcyclist, it is unknown if the other vehicle didn?t see the cyclist, failed to yield or was simply driving recklessly. It?s also possible that the motorcyclist was the one driving negligently, which is why it?s important to conduct a thorough investigation of instances like these.
If you or a loved one was recently injured in a motorcycle accident, your life will likely never be the same. Even when motorcyclists survived accidents, they are often left with severe injuries that will require expensive medical attention. If you believe that another person was at fault in the accident, you can enlist the aid of an attorney who may be able to help you prove fault and receive compensation.
