Liability for an Aberdeen, Maryland, Motorcycle Collision
Maryland law makes it challenging to hold at-fault motorists responsible if you contributed to the accident or your injuries at all. For example, you might be partially liable if you were speeding, even if the accident occurred because the other driver ran a red light. If these accusations arise in your case, we will need to act quickly to mitigate them.
Maryland’s contributory negligence law could bar you from financial recovery if you are even one percent responsible for the crash. Not wearing a helmet might be considered contributory negligence, as well, in some cases. Maryland requires helmets for all motorcyclists under Md. Transp. Code § 21-1306.
We may be able to prove that the other driver is 100 percent liable for your accident and injuries by showing:
- They had a duty of care to act in a certain way, usually according to traffic law.
- They breached this duty, violating the law and acting carelessly.
- This caused your collision.
- You suffered physical and financial harm, as well as psychological damages because of the crash.
These are the four factors of negligence. If we can provide evidence to show the other driver was negligent, we can generally hold them liable and get justice for our client. This may be possible through an out-of-court settlement with that driver’s insurance company or through a Harford County civil lawsuit.
We usually work to settle these cases for our clients, reducing the stress and time a trial would involve. However, when necessary, our trial team will present a strong suit to the judge and jury and request a fair and just payout in court.
How Soon do I Need to Consider My Legal Options for Recovery?
We need to get started on building your Aberdeen motorcycle accident case as quickly as possible after the crash. Gathering evidence only becomes harder as time passes. It is more difficult to canvass for witnesses, identify video footage of the crash, and complete other time-sensitive tasks with each passing day.
There are also deadlines for filing a lawsuit, so we need to try to reach a fair settlement agreement before time expires. Missing these deadlines could bar you from financial recovery. In general, the deadlines in these cases are three years from:
- The date of the accident in an injury case under Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 5-101
- The date of death in a wrongful death case under Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-904
Some exceptions exist, so it is a good idea to connect with our team as soon as your injuries allow for your complimentary consultation.
