How a Maryland injury lawyer can help motorcycle-crash victims

At our law firm, we represent motorcyclists who have been injured in accidents involving bigger, heavier, closed vehicles like cars, SUVs, vans, pickups, buses and commercial trucks. We also fight for compensation for the surviving loved ones of motorcycle drivers and riders killed on the road because of the negligence or recklessness of other drivers or parties. 

Far-reaching investigation 

It behooves anyone involved in an injury-producing or fatal motorcycle crash to talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after the incident. A plaintiff’s lawyer will immediately launch a vigorous investigation into the accident while evidence is still fresh. Legal counsel may involve an experienced accident reconstructionist to help determine exactly what happened and where blame for the accident may lie.

Was anyone speeding or breaking traffic laws in other ways? Could road rage have been involved? Was a driver under the influence of alcohol, medication of illegal narcotics? Was distracted driving such as from texting, eating, reading or putting on makeup behind the wheel a contributing factor? Was everyone adjusting for the weather, wet roads, debris, fog, bright sun or other potentially dangerous conditions? 

Were all vehicles involved properly designed, manufactured and maintained? Had any of them been subject to recall for any reason? 

The lawyer may also consult a civil engineer to determine whether the roadway or any of its attributes were safely designed and maintained. 

Step up our game for summer biking 

With Memorial Day in the rear-view mirror, summer motorcycle season is in full throttle throughout Maryland. Of course, there are safety practices that bikers should follow, but it is also imperative that drivers of closed vehicles take every reasonable precaution to keep smaller, more vulnerable motorcyclists safe on the roads we all legally share. It can be a matter of life and death.
