A motorcyclist is in critical condition after an elderly woman pulled out of a Norman gas station in front of him, causing his bike to collide with the driver’s side of her vehicle. The motorcyclist was only 26 years old and was wearing his helmet.
Sometimes tragedy strikes no matter what precautions are taken by the victim. This fact is particularly true when the victim is on a motorcycle. It seems no matter how many reminders we put out to look twice, people simply don’t take the necessary time to confirm the road is free from motorists before making a lane change or, in this case, pulling out in front of an oncoming motorcyclist.
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed by a negligent or reckless driver while on a motorcycle, you may be able to procure help from a motorcycle accident attorney in Oklahoma who’s familiar with both state laws and insurance claims. You may stand to gain substantial compensation beyond the cost of your medical bills.
This help won’t ever make the pain go away and won’t bring back a lost loved one but it can become an unforgettable reminder to one more negligent person that they should practice greater precaution when taking to the road. It can also remove the burden of mounting medical bills amid a sudden and unexpected loss of income that makes paying even the ordinary bills next to impossible. You didn’t deserve this but you do deserve help and you may be entitled to substantial relief.
