Were you Injured in a Motorcycle Accident?
Motorcycles are fairly common on the roads in Maryland. Motorcyclists are able to enjoy a significant amount of freedom while driving due to their chosen mode of transportation. Of course, without the substantial protective barriers that traditional vehicles have, they have very little separating them from the road and are exposed to a much higher degree of risk.
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a motorcycle accident due to the negligence or intentional actions of another party, it is important to know the options that you have for legal recourse. Get in touch with our Harford County personal injury attorney as soon as possible to discuss your case.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Drivers under the influence of alcohol, or illegal or prescription drugs
- Failing to yield the right of way to motorcyclists
- Failing to abide by posted traffic laws or speed limits
- Failing to see the motorcyclist when changing lanes or turning
- Tailgating and other forms of aggressive driving
- Swerving in front of the motorcyclist
- Defective design of the motorcycle or motorcycle parts
