Fatal Bicycle Accidents in Maryland
Automobile accidents in Maryland take the lives of hundreds of people every year. In some cases, people are not traveling inside vehicles at all. Unfortunately, we see many people using bicycles at the time of their accidents. People who are riding bikes are generally unprotected from impact. As a result, they are more likely to suffer severe injuries and accidents involving larger vehicles or those speeding.
