Riding a motorcycle is one of the most dangerous ways to travel the road. Not only are these vehicles capable of incredible speed, but the protection for a rider is minimum at best. Also, drivers of passenger vehicles fail to respect the motorcyclists on the road creating a dangerous environment. According to the Maryland Vehicle Administration, there are about 2000 motorcycle crashes per year. That’s 2000 lives changing forever every year. Luckily Maryland requires Personal Injury Protection on all vehicles unless waived by the owner. Even with this, it’s still hard for a motorcyclist to claim their compensation due to the culture that surrounds motorcycles. They will argue that the reason for the crash was your reckless driving or lane splitting. But in fact the most common causes of a motorcycle crash are:
- Head-on collisions
- Cars Making Left Hand Turns
- Road Hazards
From reports, we see that these three factors are the highest type of accident causes for motorcyclists. Our lawyers will reconstruct the scene and talk to all involved parties in order to understand the full picture. You will need a strong team of lawyers to represent your case in a court of law. Motorcyclists who try to file a suit on their own are often beaten by the lawyers of the defense. Family members who are operating on behalf of a loved one have an even harder task as they have to prove their loved one’s innocence without them being there. Or if you are to injured to freely move, our services are even more so required. Not only will we build your case but we will contact your insurance company for you as well. Here at the law offices of www.needaninjuryattorneymaryland.com, we have your back when you need us most. If you happen to be wrong in the situation but you have PIP coverage then we still may be able to get you compensation. If you were accused of any of the following pleas contact us, your claim may not be done.
- Lane Splitting
- Collision With Fixed Object
- Reckless Driving
If you are at fault for one of those things no worries, in the state of Maryland PIP coverage, is required for all vehicles. In a nutshell, this means we can still seek compensation for you without trying to prove who was guilty. Another tactic we will use is identifying whether your vehicle or the guilty party’s vehicle had any malfunctions. Our attorneys will work with forensic experts as well as looking for similar cases throughout the country. In the event that we find malfunctioning equipment that was there prior to the crash, we will seek payment from the manufacturing company. Also if we find the other party had malfunctioning equipment and that is what led to the crash, then we will negotiate with their insurance company on their behalf.
