Maryland Motorcyclists Are Subject to Numerous Types of Injuries in a Variety of Motorcycle Accidents

Our Baltimore Law Firm Takes on Challenging Motorcycle Claims

Although Maryland is considered one of the most beautiful places to ride in the United States, motorcyclists in Maryland are still vulnerable to accidents caused by other motorists and negligent transportation departments. Even if you take every reasonable precaution, you could still be hit by a careless driver or lose control of your bike on an poorly maintained road.

Experienced Baltimore motorcycle accident lawyers at LeViness, Tolzman & Hamilton, P.A. can help you recover compensation for the injuries you sustained in a motorcycle accident. Our lawyers have substantial skills and relentless determination which enables us to achieve the highest possible settlements with insurance companies, negligent drivers and municipalities. However, our litigation team is always prepared to take your case to trial if we believe you can do better.

Careless Motorists Put Motorcyclists at Risk

Motorcycles inspire a sense of freedom and excitement. Unfortunately, the very same aspects that make riding so enjoyable also make it dangerous. Without airbags, seatbelts, roll bars and hard metal enclosures, motorcycles provide virtually no protection to you or your passenger during a wreck. Other drivers also put motorcyclists at risk of crashing with negligent actions such as:

  • Failing to notice if a motorcycle has moved into the blind spot of the car, truck or SUV
  • Driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol
  • Engaging in an inappropriate activity, such as texting, mobile phone use or other types of distracted driving
  • Opening the door of a parked car without checking first
  • Cutting motorcyclists off while changing lanes or turning
  • Boxing a motorcycle in between two vehicles on a congested highway
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating motorcycles, especially at excessive speeds

Liability of City or State Transportation Departments

Each road is maintained by a specific government agency that has the duty to repair problems, warn drivers of hazards and perform general upkeep. Their failure to do so can put motorcyclists at risk. Dangers you may encounter on a poorly maintained roadway include:

  • Accumulated snow
  • Broken traffic signals
  • Dim street lighting
  • Employee distracted while driving a government vehicle
  • Faded reflective lane paint
  • Ice patches
  • Inadequate warning about a construction site
  • Insufficient shoulder to allow you to safely pull to the side
  • Potholes
  • Raised manhole covers
  • Removed or concealed street signs
  • Road debris
  • Slick road surfaces
  • Uneven pavement

All accidents require paperwork. But the procedures for filing a claim against Baltimore, Maryland or the federal government are different from suing an individual or private corporation. Our Baltimore motorcycle accident lawyers have substantial experience with the complicated rules imposed on people who suffer injuries because of negligent government departments and workers. We aggressively advocate for your rights to compensation.
