When cars and motorcycles share the road, each has a responsibility to provide a duty of care to the other. The party whose negligence caused the accident is at fault and will bear responsibility for its financial expenses and losses. Our MD Accident Law team will use evidence to help you prove fault and liability. This evidence could include a crash report, witness statements, and notes and diagrams from the police officer’s crash investigation.
If necessary, we would consult accident scene reconstructionist experts to prove who is at fault in a motorcycle accident in Maryland to bolster your compensation claim. We also help you prove the monetary value of your medical bills, income loss due to your injuries and recovery, and ongoing pain and suffering. If applicable, we also help your family request wrongful death damages.
Our Team Will Build Your Evidence File After an Accident
Proving the at-fault driver’s fault and subsequent liability after a motorcycle accident in Maryland opens the door to financial compensation. A primary benefit of hiring our team to build your case includes our familiarity with state and local law. Maryland is one of only four U.S. states with contributory negligence laws.
This means that if the at-fault driver assigns any part of the accident’s fault to you—even a single percentage point—you might not receive any compensation at all. When we represent you, we make sure fault is accurately assigned with the evidence we collect for you.
Official Crash Report
Your crash report will contain a wide range of details that could help us prove the accident’s cause. It will tell us:
- Descriptions and diagrams
- Witness contact information
- Road and weather conditions
- Lane and direction of travel
- Alcohol or drug presence
Your crash report will also tell us whether the at-fault driver disregarded traffic signs and signals, failed to yield the right of way, or drove while distracted. It may also contain contact information for their insurance company. We order the report for you and do not ask you to order anything.
Your medical records are an important part of your case. They document that date and the cause of your injuries, and their severity. We get copies of your medical records for you. This can be time-consuming to do on your own. That’s because it usually means obtaining information from every physician, department, and facility where you received treatment. Each of these entities can have its own billing process, making the data-gathering process even longer.
