Tulsa Highway Crash Caused by Debris on Roadway

By Car Accident Help on July 24, 2012

Debris on the roadway forced the driver of an SUV to swerve out of the way before crashing into a wall. According to a News On 6 report, the Oklahoma car accident occurred on Highway 169 near the 61st Street exit in Tulsa. Officials say the SUV was headed north when the vehicle nearly struck a mattress that was left on the roadway. The driver swerved and the SUV struck a wall. Emergency crews checked out the driver and passengers, but no one was transported to hospitals.

Drivers who are responsible for causing an accident by dropping debris on the roadway can be held accountable for any accidents that result from the hazardous conditions. According to Oklahoma Statute 21-1753.3: “The operator of a vehicle…shall be liable pursuant to subsection B of this section for any act of throwing, dropping, depositing, or otherwise placing any litter from a vehicle upon highways, roads, or public property.”

When the at-fault driver cannot be found, it must be determined if the governing body in charge of the roadway was aware of the hazardous conditions and failed to act. A skilled Oklahoma traffic accident attorney can review the circumstances of the case to determine who should be held liable for the victim’s medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other related damages. When the at-fault party is not found, injured victims of roadway debris accidents may also be able to claim compensation through the uninsured motorist clause of their own auto insurance policy.

The experienced Oklahoma personal injury lawyers at Maples Law Firm help victims of injury accidents get fair compensation for their losses. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, please contact us at (888) 226-6159 for a free and comprehensive consultation.
