Motorcycle Accidents in Maryland
More than 1,200 motorcycle crashes occur in the state of Maryland each year. Out of the total collisions, nearly 1,060 people are harmed. These incidents take place far too often as a result of negligence.
Motorcycles are only a fraction of the size of other vehicles sharing the road. As a result, motorists have a challenging time seeing them traveling nearby. This is particularly true when drivers are impaired, distracted, or reckless.
Even motorcyclists who wear helmets are at an increased risk of suffering severe injuries in auto wrecks. We see countless cyclists left with traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. There are also a lot of victims who suffer broken bones and severe lacerations. These injuries are often very challenging to overcome. Dealing with painful limitations and permanent scarring and disfigurements is not only physically draining but mentally exhausting as well.
