Bicyclist Hospitalized after Crash with Oklahoma City Police Cruiser

By Car Accident Help on October 21, 2013

A 30-year-old man was injured in a car accident in Oklahoma City involving a police cruiser. According to a news report on KFOR.com, the injury collision occurred near N.E. 27th and Martin Luther King Boulevard. Officials are still trying to determine who struck whom. Based on preliminary reports, officials say the bicyclist was driving his bike in the middle of the street without any lights on after dark, which is a violation of the law. Police also said that the officer who was driving the cruiser was not distracted, speeding or responding to an emergency. The investigation is still ongoing.

Oklahoma law states that bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as other motorists. Under Oklahoma law, it is also required for bicyclists to ride with a front and back light at night. When a bicyclist has been injured in a collision with another vehicle, a number of questions must be asked:

  • Who was at fault for the accident?
  • Did impairment, driver distraction, speed or inattention cause the crash?
  • Was there a dangerous or defective condition on the roadway?
  • Did vehicle malfunction play a part in the crash?

These are just some of the questions that must be asked in order to determine who was responsible for causing the crash. Injured victims can seek compensation from the at-fault motorist for damages including medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization, pain and suffering and emotional distress.

The experienced Oklahoma City auto accident lawyers at the Maples Law Firm know how to help injured bicycle accident victims fair and full compensation for their damages and losses. Please contact us at (888) 226-6159 for a free consultation and comprehensive case evaluation.
