At the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow, we are passionate advocates for the injured. If a negligent vehicle driver caused an accident and you were injured, we help you fight for compensation. The compensation you can recover includes lost wages, pain and suffering, and medical expenses. We also help you recover the costs of repairing or replacing your motorcycle.
If you or someone you love was injured in a motorcycle accident, we could help you seek compensation from the at-fault driver. Our Fallston motorcycle accident lawyer will assign a value to your injuries and related expenses. We will also fight hard to ensure contributory negligence does not impede your ability to collect compensation. We make sure the statute of limitations does not expire and will negotiate with the at-fault driver or their insurance company.
Statistics for Motorcycle Accidents in Maryland
According to Maryland Department of Transportation statistics, 1,400 motorcycle occupants are injured, and as many as 70 are fatally injured in motorcycle accidents every year. When the drivers of cars are involved in motorcycle accidents, possible causes include:
- Driver inattention or distraction
- Failure to yield the right of way
- Alcohol or drug impairment
Your crash report will note these and all contributing factors in your accident. We will obtain a copy of the report when it becomes available. It can help us combat the potential damage you might face if part of the cause of the accident is attributed to you.
In our state of Maryland, if the at-fault driver attributes any portion of the accident to you, you will not be able to collect any compensation for your injuries and related expenses. Our investigation and evidence collection prove the at-fault driver’s liability and your right to compensation.
Recoverable Compensation for Motorcycle Accidents
After an accident, you are entitled to recover two types of damages from the at-fault driver. Economic damages include medical bills, lost wages, and motorcycle damage. They can also include the costs of your medications, crutches, cane, wheelchair, or other medical apparatus.
You are also entitled to non-economic damages like pain and suffering, scarring and disfigurement, and lasting disabilities. Our motorcycle accident attorneys will also collect two types of evidence. We collect the evidence that proves you are entitled to compensation and evidence that proves the value of your compensable damages. If applicable, we also help you recover the funeral and burial expenses for a loved one who did not survive the accident.
Maryland’s Statute of Limitations
Filing your case on time is as important as filing your case at all. If you do not file your motorcycle accident lawsuit on time, you will be prohibited from filing it, or it will be dismissed without being heard. In addition, depending on the outcome of your case, one of the following statutes of limitations will apply:
- According to Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 5-101, if you or someone you love was injured, you generally have three years to file your personal injury lawsuit.
- According to Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-904, if a loved one was fatally injured, you will generally have three years to file your wrongful death lawsuit.
Treating your injuries correctly and maximizing your recovery is important to you and us. In addition to making sure your case is filed on time, we also ensure you get the highest quality medical care. We thoughtfully recommend the same health care providers we recommend to our friends, family, and team members.
