Maryland Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Our Maryland motorcycle accident lawyers have been practicing law in Maryland since 1954. With Maryland’s open highways, riding a motorcycle here is as popular as ever. While safety technology has progressed over the decades in cars and trucks, there is not as much that can be done to protect motorcycle riders simply due to the weight difference between a motorcycle and any other form of motor vehicle. An average of 72 motorcycle riders die each year in Maryland. While the laws protect riders, cars do not always obey. So while it is always advised that motorcycle riders wear head protection and take other safety precautions, driving defensively is not always enough to avoid serious injury while on a bike.
As any driver is aware, other drivers in Maryland can be unpredictable. When accident strikes while on a motorcycle, substantial injuries can occur. When this happens, the first and most important step is to receive prompt medical treatment. Once you have received initial medical treatment, it is best to contact your Maryland motorcycle accident lawyer who can advise you on next steps.
Our Maryland motorcycle accident lawyers understand the stress that is placed on a victim of a motorcycle accident. Often, the injuries are brutal and debilitating. It may become more difficult to perform everyday tasks such as going to work, making dinner, hobbies, and spending time with friends and family. Our lawyers make sure, not just that you are fully compensated for these elements, but that you are fully informed every step of the process. We know that a successful personal injury case is not just about getting great results, but also about taking care of our clients. This is why we have our phone lines available 24/7. We want to fight for you.
When you are undergoing treatment, we do not hesitate to check in on your recovery process, even if there is no update on your case. We encourage you to ask any questions you may have as it relates to your case. It is smaller details such as these that contribute to our client-centric approach.
Proficient in Maryland Motorcycle Accident Law
In law school, you are taught how to think and behave like a lawyer. But it takes decades of experience to know how to work with the insurance companies in order to obtain the best possible settlement for clients. Moreover, nearly 70 years of time practicing law in Maryland has provided our Maryland motorcycle accident lawyers with invaluable experience in the courtroom.
When you are on the road, you owe a standard of ordinary care to other drivers around you. When someone hits your motorcycle as you are riding, you have to be able to prove that the driver acted in breach of that duty. While it may seem simple if a car hits you while you riding, you must also prove by a preponderance of the evidence that the driver, not only caused your injury, but acted without ordinary care. Discovery of evidence is a useful tool in proving this element of a personal injury case. Our Maryland motorcycle accident lawyers can help you better understand the discovery process for your case.
Unfortunately, this is an often-overlooked aspect of hiring a motorcycle accident lawyer. Our Maryland lawyers act forcefully in obtaining compensation for our clients. We do not believe in a laid-back style of practice or litigation. While there is considerable value in having patience in law, insurance companies are almost never willing to pay you. When they are, they do not want to pay you as much as your injury is worth. But in motorcycle accidents in particular, the injuries are often extreme, and our clients frequently require immediate assistance. This is why we do such a thorough job in preparing each case to provide the most value possible to our clients.
