Man Killed in Adair County Motorcycle Accident

By Car Accident Help on May 8, 2012

A 24-year-old man was killed in a fatal Oklahoma motorcycle accident after his motorcycle struck a pickup truck. According to a news report in NewsOK.com, the fatal motorcycle accident occurred on U.S. 59 north of Stilwell in Adair County. The man was driving south on the highway when he struck a pickup truck driven by a 66-year-old woman and then hit a mailbox and a stop sign. The motorcyclist was taken to an area hospital with severe head and internal injuries, but later died from his injuries. The man was wearing a helmet. The two women in the pickup truck were uninjured.

According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, fatalities involving motorcyclists have steadily increased over the last 10 years. In fact, in 2007, there was a 7 percent increase in fatalities as compared to 2006. Per vehicle mile traveled in 2007, motorcyclists were about 37 times more likely than occupants of other vehicles to die in a motor vehicle accident and nine times more likely to be injured.

When a fatal motorcycle accident is caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, the family of the deceased victim can file what is known as a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault motorist seeking compensation for damages such as lost future wages, medical expenses, and funeral costs.

The experienced Oklahoma motorcycle accident attorneys at Maples Law Firm offer our deepest condolences to anyone who has lost a beloved family member in a traffic accident.
