Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Baltimore, MD

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles are incredibly fun to ride even though they are extremely prone to accidents. Because they are so exposed, motorcyclists are at least five times as likely to be injured in a crash than someone driving a car. If you’ve been injured in an accident, contact a Baltimore MD Motorcycle Accident Lawyer today. Here are some of the most common causes of motorized bike collisions.

Motorcyclists can be injured after crashing into the doors of parked vehicles that suddenly swing open. The car’s operator may be considered negligent for not checking the side-view mirror before pulling the door’s handle.

Inexperienced Drivers

Those without proper training on driving a motorcycle are far more likely to get into an accident than those who are licensed. Wearing protective gear, such as a helmet, leather jacket and knee pads, is essential. Someone lacking instruction may fail to thoroughly comprehend the danger and drive a hog without permission.

Unsafe Maneuvers

Because motorcycles are extremely nimble, riders might engage in risky driving practices. When there is heavy traffic, the temptation to travel between lanes may be too great. This is known as lane splitting and is highly dicey. Another treacherous habit is speeding along the breakdown lane, where the road’s surface could be uneven or unexpected obstacles could suddenly appear. 

Road Conditions

Two-wheeled vehicles are far more likely to skid out than those balanced on four. When rainstorms suddenly fall, there are increased odds of a motorcycle crash. Other road perils, such as potholes and crumbling bridges, can be highly threatening for motorcyclists. The state could be responsible for not making a good-faith effort to rectify these pitfalls.

Left Turns

Because they are so much smaller than cars, motorcycles can be difficult to spot. This increases the odds that they will become involved in right-of-way errors. Motorcyclists need to be cautious that they are observed when moving through four-way intersections.

Manufacturing Errors

Some motorcycle accidents result from poor assembly or faulty parts. When it is provable that an accident occurred because of the bike’s manufacturer, a lawsuit is likely to unfold. Outcomes range from settling out of court to a widespread civil suit involving thousands of customers and strong media interest.

If you become injured in an accident involving a motorcycle and it wasn’t your fault, consult with a Baltimore MD Motorcycle Accident Lawyer to piece together your case and sue the responsible party. Hiring a professional litigant with expertise regarding these incidents will place you in the best position possible for winning in court.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
