Bicycle Accidents in MarylandEvery year, thousands of people are left with injuries as a result of motor vehicle accidents across Montgomery County. In some instances, injured parties are using bicycles at the time of their accidents. Although this method of transportation is generally considered safe and healthy, there are instances when innocent riders are left seriously injured due to negligent drivers sharing the road.
Bicyclists who are involved in accidents are more likely to suffer from serious injuries. This is due to the fact that they are unprotected during crashes. Some of the main injuries that victims of bicycle accidents suffer from include:
