At the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow, we represent motorcycle accident victims seeking compensation from an at-fault driver after an accident. We also represent the surviving family members of victims who did not survive an accident. So while you cope with physical and emotional recovery, we get to work collecting evidence, building your case, and fighting for the compensation you and your family deserve.
Our Fort Washington personal injury lawyer will take care of the details of your case, including dealing with the at-fault driver and their insurance company. We assign a value to your medical care, income loss, pain and suffering, and more. We collect evidence and make sure your case is filed in time to comply with the statute of limitations. We also handle the negotiation process and fight hard for a favorable settlement.
Types of Injuries Motorcyclists Suffer in Accidents
According to Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) research, severe head injuries are a common consequence of motorcycle accidents, often resulting in fatalities. Additional injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Road rash burns
- Spinal cord injuries
- Head trauma
- Brain damage
Our motorcycle accident attorneys will work with you and your health care provider to create a detailed list of your injuries. We also document your necessary treatment, duration, and prognosis for recovery. These are all factors that help us determine the cost and extent of your critical care.
Economic Damages Recoverable in Motorcycle Accidents
The at-fault driver is responsible for the full scope of treatment you have and will require until you reach maximum medical improvement. In addition to current and future medical care, we also recover the following:
- Current and future lost wages
- Motorcycle damage or destruction
- Motorcycle diminished value
- In-home medical and domestic aid
- Treatment-related travel expenses
So that you do not have to, we compile the records and reports that substantiate these costs. We also present your documents to the at-fault party and their insurer as part of the claims and negotiations processes.
Non-Economic Damages Injured Motorcyclists Can Pursue
Recovering from a motorcycle accident will require physical, mental, and emotional health care and support. In addition to your economic damages, we also recover the following non-economic damages:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional trauma
- Physical disability or disfigurement
In addition, we pursue wrongful death damages for the families of individuals who did not survive the accident. These include funeral and burial costs, pain and suffering, and mental and physical anxiety.
Your Time Is Limited to Take Legal Action for a Motorcycle Accident in Maryland
You only have a limited amount of time to hold the at-fault driver responsible for causing your accident. If you or someone you love was injured, you generally have up to three years to file your lawsuit before the personal injury statute of limitations runs out, according to Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 5-101.
If a loved one was fatally injured, you generally have up to three years to file your lawsuit before the wrongful death statute of limitations runs out, according to Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-904. With sufficient notice from you, our motorcycle accident attorneys will ensure the filing deadline is met, and your right to financial compensation does not expire.

We Handle Our Motorcycle Accident Case From Beginning to end
At the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow, we understand the devastating impact of a motorcycle crash and the toll it can take on you and your family. It can change your lives in sudden and unexpected ways, and we are committed to helping you get the compensation that lets you start rebuilding your lives.
To make the financial recovery process move along toward a resolution, we will order your crash report and all relevant reports and records for you. We also ensure you get the best available medical care by sending you to the same providers we send our loved ones and team members to.
Our Fee Agreement
When we represent you, we make sure you do not add to the financial stress of the accident by accepting your case on a contingency fee basis. That means we will not:
- Receive any compensation until you do
- Charge you any fees to review your case
- Charge you any of the upfront costs of your case
We explain the details of our fee agreement right at the beginning and start building your case with your complimentary review and our independent investigation.
Our Communication Standard
When you choose our law firm to represent you, we believe in open communication that keeps you abreast of the progress of your case. Therefore, whenever there is a new development or update in your Fort Washington case, we inform you immediately. We also make sure you can contact your motorcycle accident lawyer anytime by telephone, email, or text message.
How Contributory Negligence Can Impact Your Compensation
Maryland is one of the few states that apply contributory negligence to personal injury cases. If you are found to be even one percent responsible for contributing to the cause of the accident, you will be legally barred from collecting any compensation at all. We work hard to prove the at-fault driver’s negligence is accurately assigned, and your financial recovery is not at risk.
