Many residents of Maryland and Virginia are spending time outdoors this summer more than ever before, some riding motorcycles. While this can be a great activity to get outside and view some scenery across the country, the reality is that many other drivers on the roadways don’t pay attention, especially when it comes to motorcycles on the road. The result? Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of motorcyclists are struck by negligent or reckless drivers every year in Maryland and Virginia.
Unfortunately, collisions between a motorcycle and a passenger vehicle oftentimes leave the motorcyclist and any passengers in far worse shape than others involved in the crash. Motorcyclists and their passengers could suffer severe injuries in these crashes, including brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and, in the worst-case scenarios, fatalities may occur.
For those who are able to survive such a crash, there may be legal options to consider. In a personal injury lawsuit, injured victims may be able to recover financial compensation that can be used to pay for mounting healthcare expenses. Some victims will face such expenses for years after a motorcycle accident – perhaps even for the rest of their lives.
At our law firm, we understand the difficulties that injured motorcycle accident victims face, both in the immediate aftermath of a collision and in the years to come. We work with our clients to aggressively pursue financial compensation after motorcycle accidents.
