Young Motorcyclist Suffers Burn Injuries in Oklahoma Crash

By Car Accident Help on November 7, 2012

A 17-year-old Midwest City High School senior was injured in a recent Oklahoma car accident when his 1997 motorcycle collided with a Chevy Impala and caught fire. According to a KOCO news report, the motorcycle crash occurred on northeast 10th Street near Lee Avenue in Midwest City. Officials say the motorcycle struck the front passenger door of the car before bursting into flames. The high-school student was knocked unconscious and severely burned. He has been listed in extremely critical condition and has sustained third-degree burns on 50 percent of his body. Officials are looking into whether the driver made an improper left turn before the crash.

It is common for motorcycle accidents to result from a failure to yield the right-of-way. Drivers who are distracted, speeding, or otherwise negligent often miss an approaching motorcycle. It is crucial that motorists obey the law by remaining focused and by yielding the right-of-way.

Under Oklahoma Statute 47-11-402, ‘The driver of a vehicle within an intersection intending to turn to the left shall yield the right-of-way to any vehicle approaching from the opposite direction which is within the intersection or so close thereto as to constitute an immediate hazard.”

Victims of negligent motorists may pursue financial compensation from the at-fault party. A knowledgeable Oklahoma motorcycle accident attorney can help the victim pursue support for medical bills, hospitalization fees, lost wages, disabilities, permanent injuries, disfigurement, the cost of future treatment, and other related damages.

The experienced lawyers at Maples Law Firm help victims of motorcycle accidents get the compensation they need and rightfully deserve. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle crash, please contact us at (888) 226-6159 for a free and comprehensive consultation.
