Motorcycle Accidents Require Special Legal Representation
Motorcycle accidents require good legal representation to protect your rights, perhaps more than any other accident. As one of the smallest vehicles on the road, those involved in motorcycle accidents often suffer extremely severe injuries.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
While riding your motorcycle, there are many hazards you need to watch out for. Some of these hazards are unique to motorcycles due to the size difference between them and other vehicles. It's crucial that riders know what signs to look out for while on their motorcycle to help them avoid accidents. But what are some of the causes of motorcycle accidents?
- Someone opening a car door
- Reckless driving
- Alcohol or drug use
- Inexperienced drivers
- Vehicles switching lanes
- Blind spots on vehicles
- Inclement weather
- Distracted drivers
- Vehicles making left turns
What Are the Most Common Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Accidents?
Injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents can range from:
- Cuts and bruises
- Broken bones
- More severe internal injuries
- Or paralysis
Also, the symptoms and consequences of such trauma do not always immediately manifest. This makes recovery for the wrongs done to you all the more critical. An experienced attorney can walk you through the process of recovering what you deserve.
Recovering From a Motorcycle Accident
It is fairly easy to be involved in a motorcycle accident. Other drivers may be distracted, not used to maneuvering around motorcycles, unsure as to the laws of the road when it comes to motorcycles, or just plain negligent.
Whatever the reason for the accident, all drivers have a duty of care to drive in such a manner so that you are not unreasonably put in harm’s way. An attorney can review your situation to see if the other driver breached their duty of care in how they drove around you, and if that was the cause of your injury.
They could have veered in front of you, sped, or even intentionally collided with you. An attorney will also review your actions to ensure that you can recover compensation under Maryland’s comparative negligence doctrine — if the motorcycle accident was somehow partially your fault, it may be more difficult to recover.
After evidence is gathered, it is presented in court or a settlement negotiation.
The judge will request information on your:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- The effect of the accident on your family
- And other factors to determine how much you should recover from the responsible party
An attorney can guide you through this process to ensure you get the maximum reward you deserve.
Insurance Claims After a Motorcycle Accident
Because it is difficult to obtain no-fault personal injury protection insurance as a motorcycle driver in Maryland, it is all the more imperative that you contact a lawyer for legal counsel when you are in an accident. The scarceness of this insurance means that most motorcycle drivers will only be able to recover from the other driver’s insurance company.
