Bicycle Accidents in MarylandMotor vehicle accidents in the state of Maryland leave over 3000 pedestrians injured every year. There are many instances where people are utilizing bicycles at the time of their accidents. Bicyclists are more likely to suffer serious injuries and accidents due to the fact that they are unprotected. Having little more than helmets to protect them, bicyclists are more likely to suffer from back injuries, spinal cord injuries, and severely broken bones and accidents.
Unfortunately, the majority of crashes that take place in our state are caused by drivers who engage in reckless and negligent actions. We see countless bicyclists harmed by drivers who are speeding and those who run red lights. Failing to yield the right of way to bicyclists is another common cause of crashes in our state.
