Could construction contribute to a motorcyclist's death?

When you drive a car, you understand the risks you face. There's the threat of the behemoth semi-truck sharing the road, and even your lane, from time to time; the threat of texting, talking or otherwise negligent drivers in passenger cars next to you. But one thing you may never factor in as a threat is the motorcycle driver, weaving in and out of traffic, carefully and attentively anticipating the moves of the drivers around him, ever mindful that he may not be seen and accidentally overcome by a quick lane change or sudden braking.

Even the most attentive motorcycle rider cannot operate in a way that completely removes him from harm. There are numerous other factors that may also come into play and present other, very real, hazards on his travel. Road debris and roads in ill-repair have posed serious problems in the past, resulting in disastrous consequences.

An Oklahoma man was thrown from his motorcycle and killed recently on a southbound stretch of  US 69/75 near Platter Road after a car pulled into the intersection and collided with his motorcycle. Police are currently investigating the accident and residents of Calera express concern that the ongoing construction in the area may have caused the accident and may result in additional accidents.

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, you could find great relief from a consultation with a motorcycle accident attorney who can help determine all factors that contributed to the cause and from there aggressively pursue the compensation you are owed.
