As a motorcycle rider, you already know the potential dangers of taking your bike out on the road. You know that, even when you take the proper precautions like wearing a helmet and obeying all traffic laws, drivers don’t always look out for motorcycles. However, that doesn’t mean you deserve to be injured. Your life is valuable, and you deserve to ride the roads just as safe as anyone else.
So, what happens if you’re involved in an accident while riding your motorcycle in Maryland? You’ll want to contact the Maryland Motorcycle Accident Lawyers with The Lapidus Law Firm.
Motorcycle Accidents in Maryland
Did you know that motorcycle riders are six times more likely than drivers to be injured in an accident? This, even though motorcycle drivers have all the same rights on the road as drivers of other vehicles. According to the State Highway Administration Safety Information Database, motorcycle riders are responsible for less than half of all vehicle-motorcycle accidents in Maryland – but three out of four motorcycle accidents result in injury to the motorcycle rider.
Motorcyclists should take extra care while riding in Anne Arundel, Baltimore, and Harford counties, as well as Baltimore City, as reports show nearly 43% of all motorcycle accidents in Maryland take place in these areas. Extra safety precautions should also be taken in Montgomery County and Prince Georges County as well.
What Should I Do If I’m Injured in a Motorcycle Accident?
If you are involved in an accident while on your motorcycle, the most important thing to do is seek medical attention. Even if you only see cuts and scrapes, it’s essential to be seen by a doctor or another medical professional as some injuries may not surface immediately.
Plus, seeking medical attention promptly can help your case should you decide to seek legal action against the negligent party. If you’re considering that option, call the Maryland Motorcycle Accident Lawyers with The Lapidus Law Firm.
