Norman crash kills motorcyclist

An afternoon two-vehicle crash killed a motorcycle driver in Norman. A man was driving a 2004 Harley Davidson west on Alameda Drive when a 2008 Ford F-150 traveling east turned in front of him. The truck was attempting to drive into a private residence. The motorcyclist died at the scene of the accident. The occupants of the pickup truck did not sustain any serious injuries. There were no other vehicles involved in the collision. Crews cleaned and investigated the scene, closing Alameda Drive for around four hours. Police are continuing to investigate the cause of the motorcycle accident, and have not said whether or not any charges will be filed.

It is not clear if this accident was the result of the driver of the pickup not seeing the motorcyclist as this is sometimes the cause for motorcycle accidents. Motorcycles may be overlooked by drivers which can cause collisions. Motorcyclists are more vulnerable than motorists in accidents and are more likely to sustain serious or fatal injuries.

Families who have lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident have the option to seek damages. In addition to emotional suffering, many families may find themselves struggling with financial worries in the aftermath of an accident. A personal injury attorney may be able to offer assistance to surviving family members.

It may still be possible to obtain compensation in accidents where no one has been charged or convicted of any fault. An attorney may review the police accident report or conduct an independent accident investigation in order to determine fault. The evidence, including photos, reports or expert testimony may be used to build a compelling case on behalf of their client.
