Motorcyclists enjoy the exhilaration and economically friendliness of their rides, but motorcyclists take risks every time they head out on the road. Even a well-trained motorcyclist who follows all safety rules cannot control the acts of drivers around them. Unexpectedly, a car can collide with a motorcyclist and forever damage a life.
Motorcyclists who suffer injuries due to negligent drivers enjoy important legal rights to compensation. Asserting those rights is rarely simple, however, so seek help from a highly experienced motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible after a crash. The Law Offices of Randolph Rice is here to help, so please do not hesitate to call today for more information.
Motorcyclists do not have airbags, seat belts, or even the frames of their vehicles to protect them. In the event of a crash, a motorcyclist is almost completely vulnerable to traumatic impacts with other vehicles and the pavement. For this reason, motorcycle crashes can cause devastating injuries.
Maryland requires all motorcycle operators and passengers to wear approved protective helmets. While helmets lessen the potential for serious head trauma and death, they don’t entirely prevent brain injuries, and helmets do nothing to protect the rest of the body.
Even motorcyclists who wear all possible safety gear can still face lengthy and costly recoveries from painful crash injuries. Many motorcyclists will struggle with permanent disabilities or disfigurement for the rest of their lives due to an accident.
Motorcyclists can incur substantial losses from accidents, including medical expenses, costs of future treatments, lost earnings, lost future opportunities due to disabilities, pain and suffering, and much more. Damages can vary significantly from case to case, but one thing remains true—injured motorcyclists have the right to hold negligent drivers liable for their losses.
