Bicycle Accidents in Maryland
Every year, more than 30,000 people are injured in automobile accidents across the state of Maryland. In some instances, people are riding bicycles at the time of their accidents. Although riders usually have helmets to protect them, they are still at an increased risk of suffering serious and life-altering injuries.
Although most bicyclists are careful and considerate while driving on our state’s busy roadways, many people are injured in accidents due to the negligence of others. Some of the leading causes of bicycle crashes in Maryland include:
- Motorists who fail to yield the right of way
- Left-turn accidents
- Running red lights
- Forgetting to look before backing up
- Rear-ending a bicycle
- Opening a car door in the path of a rider
- Driving while distracted
- Driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol
