Collision Cases in Bowie, Frederick, Lexington Park, Prince Frederick & Waldorf

As a motorcyclist, you have always followed the rules of the road to a tee, been considerate of others around you, and went against the stereotype of the reckless renegade rider. Yet, despite your best efforts at safety, you have been involved in a collision with another vehicle – a rear-end accident, to be more precise. Now you’re suffering the consequences without any assistance, even though you’re the victim in this case and deserve ample compensation from the at-fault party.

Our Maryland motorcycle accident attorneys put their best efforts into each and every case, no exceptions.

Common Causes of Rear-End Motorcycle Accidents

There are two types of rear-end motorcycle accidents, both of which can result in devastating injuries, such as traumatic brain injury, broken bones, spinal cord injury, disfigurement and paralysis, or even death.

They are as follows:

  • Motorcycle Is Hit from Behind: This is what people usually think of when they hear about rear-end motorcycle accidents. Liable motorists often claim that they did not see the motorcyclist in front of them when it occurred. This is no excuse. All motorists have the duty to focus on the road and practice caution. Distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving and tailgating commonly contribute to hit-from-behind accidents. Any of these dangerous behaviors can constitute negligence in an injury claim case.
  • Sudden-Stop Accident: This is when the car in front of a motorcycle comes to a screeching halt, leaving the motorcyclist no time to react. The ensuing collision can cause the motorcyclist and any passenger to be catapulted over the handlebars and into any fixed or moving object, with devastating consequences. Speeding, inattentive, or indecisive motorists are usually behind this type of collision.

If the latter applies to your situation, you may have a much tougher time establishing your claim since conventional wisdom says those in the rear are at fault in most cases. An experienced Maryland motorcycle accident lawyer can help you prove otherwise.

All or Nothing

Unfortunately, Maryland is one of the few states in this country which goes by the contributory negligence rule. Under this system, you may be denied compensation altogether if the defendant can prove that you were in the least bit at fault for the incident. Our attorneys can help you overcome this hurdle by conducting a thorough investigation of your case, collecting indisputable evidence, and presenting an impenetrable argument in court.
