Bicycle Accidents in Maryland
Bicyclists are at an increased risk of suffering severe injuries as a result of collisions. These victims do not have adequate protection to keep them safe during collisions. It is all too common for riders to suffer severe injuries like the loss of limbs and traumatic brain injuries in crashes.
We see many bicyclists rushed from the scene of their accidents and transported to Ariel hospitals by medical personnel. These victims often require emergency medical attention. Although we want to believe that bicyclists quickly bounce back from their injuries, it often takes months or even years for them to recover. There are many instances where people never fully recover from their injuries and are left permanently disabled.
When bicyclists are injured in accidents due to the negligent actions of drivers, they may have legal options available to help them obtain the compensation that they can use to cover both the immediate and long-term care costs they face. Working with a bicycle accident lawyer in Clarksburg can ensure you are on the best path to get justice for your injuries.
