Prince Frederick Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Helping Injured Motorcyclists Through Tough Times
While motorcycles provide a sense of adventure, their lack of crashworthiness can prove injurious when motorcycle riders have to share the road with careless drivers. What’s worse is that the rider is more likely to be injured in the event of a crash, not the negligent driver who caused it. And motorcycle crashes tend to be gruesome.
If you or someone you love has been injured because of another’s negligence, you may have a right to compensation. Under law, negligent parties are on the hook for any financial or emotional damages they cause to others. Don’t let them get away without paying you what they owe—work with a trusted motorcycle accident lawyer.
At Alpert Schreyer, LLC, we help motorcycle accident victims achieve the best possible case results. Ideally, that looks like peace of mind and full compensation for medical bills, follow-up care, motorcycle repairs, and pain and suffering. We know the traumatic experience itself cannot be erased, but we can help you move forward. Over our 30 years of practice, we have helped clients come out on top after painful, life-changing accidents.

Filing a Motorcycle Accident Claim in Prince Frederick
In any part of Maryland, accident victims have three years after the date of the accident to file a claim. If an accident resulted in wrongful death, eligible surviving loved ones have three years from the date of death to act.
It is recommended not to wait—evidence will be harder to find as time goes by. Memories fade; roads get repaired; and medical bills may be lost. The longer you go without taking legal action, the harder it will likely be to back up your claim with witness testimony and hard evidence.
How to Find Fault for a Motorcycle Crash
A major part of winning a case is finding and proving fault. Essentially, this means the claimant will need to prove some sort of negligence on the part of the other party. You must show that you were not the one who caused the crash. An attorney can help with this through accident reconstruction, talking to witnesses, and investigating the scene of the accident, etc.
To give you an idea of whether you have a case, negligence in motorcycle accident cases includes:
- Drunk and impaired driving
- Texting and driving
- Tailgating motorcyclists
- Failing to check for motorcyclists when turning or changing lanes
- Hitting a motorcyclist and fleeing the scene (hit-and-run crashes)
- Crashes caused by defective motorcycle or auto parts
What If the Victim Was Partially to Blame for the Crash?
In most states, a victim who shares some of the blame for the accident still has the right to compensation. Unfortunately, this is not the case in Maryland. If a victim was even one percent at fault, they are barred from recovering compensation under the state’s contributory negligence rule.
Insurance companies tend to use this state rule against accident victims. Even if you were not at fault, all they have to do is show that you were more likely than not slightly to blame to get your case thrown out. This is all too easy for them, as most people trust their insurance agents and may go on the record saying things that can later be misrepresented.
If you have been the victim of a crash, make sure to speak with an attorney before talking to an insurance agent. It can make the difference between being compensated for your injuries and being left with mountains of debt.
