Motorcycle Accidents in Maryland
Tens of thousands of people are hurt in auto accidents each year in Maryland. Many victims are using motorcycles at the time of their accidents. When people are traveling on motorcycles, they are more than 25-times more likely to suffer serious injuries in auto wrecks. This is due to the fact that motorcyclists are unprotected during impact.
When motorcycles are involved in crashes, riders are often left with severely broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and even back injuries. Even riders who wear helmets run the risk of suffering severe traumatic brain injuries that require immediate and ongoing care.
