TYPES OF MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS

INJURED? CALL ON A MARYLAND AND VIRGINIA MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER!

As reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcycle accidents resulting in fatalities are only increasing in Maryland. The small size of these vehicles makes accidents common and the consequences can be seriously damaging. Many drivers of larger cars fail to exercise appropriate caution on the road, leading to collisions with motorcycles.

As a Maryland and Virginia motorcycle accident lawyer and the founder of Mark A. Epstein, Attorney at Law, I am committed to protecting the rights of those injured in such accidents. I have more than 25 years of experience and have recovered thousands of dollars for my clients. The outcome of your case truly matters to me.

WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON KINDS OF MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS?

It is important for motorcyclists to be aware of the accidents they are exposed to by sharing the road with other drivers. Drivers often fail to check their blind spots, making it easy to miss these small bikes. This often leads to accidents, as does excessive speeding and aggressive driving.

Motorcyclists also have less visibility than cars and are without a barrier between the road and their bike. Such close proximity to the road increases the severity of any collision.

The following accidents are common for motorcyclists:

  • Cars turning left in front of a motorcycle
  • Unexpected patches of gravel
  • Coming around a corner too fast
  • Cars changing lanes into a motorcycle
  • Cars rear-ending a motorcycle

When you retain my legal assistance, I can act as the go-between when dealing with the insurance agencies. The last thing you want is to walk away with less than you deserve and I will do all that I can to ensure this doesn’t happen.
