Oklahoma Motorcyclist Injured after Rear Ended by Car

By Car Accident Help on August 21, 2012

A 75-year-old Claremore man was seriously injured in an Oklahoma intersection accident when his motorcycle was rear-ended by a 2012 Dodge pickup. According to a News On 6 report, the motorcycle accident occurred near County Road 380 and County Road 412 in Rogers County. Officials say the motorcyclist slowed down for stopped traffic when he was rear-ended by a driver who accidently hit the gas instead of the brakes. The victim has been listed in critical condition. It is not clear if the 76-year-old driver will face charges or citations.

According to the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office’s 2010 Crash Facts report, there were 1,662 motorcycle accidents in Oklahoma that year. In those accidents, 75 people were killed, 431 suffered incapacitating injuries, and 689 sustained non-incapacitating injuries. During that same year, three fatalities and 27 injuries were reported in Rogers County motorcycle crashes.

In cases where driver negligence is involved, injured motorcycle accident victims can seek compensation by filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver. Injured victims can seek compensation for damages including but not limited to medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization, physical therapy, rehabilitation, and even cost of long-term care.
