Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Rockville MDWhen you need a motorcycle accident lawyer Rockville MD drivers turn to, contact Cohen & Cohen Our legal team is dedicated to representing the rights of motorcyclists who have been involved in an accident and may have suffered injuries or sustained damages as a result.The Stats

According to studies, motorcyclists — due to the nature of their vehicle — are often subject to much greater levels of hazards on the road than the average automobile driver:

1. Right-of-Way Interference

In about two-thirds of all accidents involving a motorcycle and another vehicle, the at-fault driver is the one who interferes with the motorcyclist’s right-of-way. An experienced motorcycle accident lawyer Rockville MD drivers choose to represent them may perform a careful and detailed on-scene investigation. This can help determine:

  • The order of events leading up to the accident.
  • The accuracy of witness statements.
  • Who was at fault.

The attorneys at Cohen & Cohen have successfully represented many riders who were unfortunate victims of accidents which resulted in a personal injury. Financial restitution can help victims who otherwise might not be able to afford the level of medical care they need to recover from their injuries and move on with their lives.

2. Blind Spots

One of the biggest causes of motorcycle accidents is the failure of other drivers to see motorcyclists in traffic, resulting in collisions between motorcycles and cars or trucks. By the time the other driver sees the motorcyclist, it’s often too late.

A motorcycle accident lawyer Rockville MD riders turn to for legal help may understand that motorcyclists can be especially vulnerable on the road when compared to car and truck drivers. At Cohen & Cohen we believe in serving our clients and protecting their rights, especially if they are at greater risk on the road.

3. Intersections

One of the most common locations where accidents occur between a car or truck and a motorcyclist are intersections. Often, it’s because the other driver did not honor the motorcyclist’s right-of-way, was speeding, changing lanes, ignoring a red light or a stop sign. Not every motorcycle accident lawyer Rockville MD drivers hire will perform a thorough and meticulous accident investigation

4. Age as a Greater Factor

Riders aged 40 and older are more likely to be injured in a motorcycle accident than those who are younger. Researchers cited several explanations for this:

  • Older riders have a slower reaction time.
  • People 40 and over have poorer vision.
  • Younger people favor smaller, more maneuverable bikes which have less tendency to roll than the larger bikes that older bikers ride.
  • Younger riders are less likely to sustain major injuries.

Though the number of injuries for all motorcyclists is increasing, this is especially true for riders aged 60 and older. That group is two and a half times more likely to experience serious injuries. Injuries common among riders 40 and older are:

  • Brain damage
  • Bone fractures
  • Dislocations

If you have been injured as a result of a motorcycle injury, do not hesitate to contact a Rockville MD motorcycle accident lawyer immediately.

5. Antilock Brakes

Antilock brakes have proven to be an effective method for minimizing the risk of riding a motorcycle, which results in fewer accident claims and serious injuries.

  • According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, antilock brake-enabled motorcycles are 37 percent less likely to die in a motorcycle accident.
  • In another study, it was found that motorcycles with an antilock brake system are 23 percent less likely to be involved in a motorcycle accident.
  • Motorcyclists with an antilock braking system are 34 percent less likely to file a medical claim for injuries suffered in an accident.
  • Riders with antilock brakes are 30 percent less likely to file an accident claim within 90 days of a new insurance policy.

6. Fuel Leaks

In 62% of motorcycle accidents, fuel spills and leaks occur as a result, which increases the risk of fire. This is notably higher than the risk of fire in non-motorcycle involved crashes.

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.
