Where Do Most Car Accidents Occur in Capitol Heights, Maryland?

To be fair, car accidents in Capitol Heights can happen anywhere someone behind the wheel is negligently operating their vehicle.

Whether they are distracted by their cellphone, talking to passengers, or speeding, failing to pay attention to the task of driving is one of the main causes of traffic collisions in Capitol Heights.

However, the stretch of road on 14th Street NW, in the Columbia Heights neighborhood between Harvard and Quincy Streets, is one of the most dangerous areas for traffic collisions to occur in our community.

Despite the city’s plans to add curb extensions, bump-outs, and vegetated refuge islands to help slow down traffic on Southern Avenue NE/SE, Watts Branch Stream, Brooke Road, Capitol Heights Boulevard, Yost Place, Marlboro Pike, or Eastern Avenue NE, car accidents with injuries are continuing to occur at an alarming rate.

If you were hurt in a traffic collision, contact our Capitol Heights personal injury lawyers today to learn about your legal options in holding the negligent party who caused your crash responsible for your financial recovery.

Where Do Most Semi-Truck Accidents Occur in Capitol Heights, Maryland?

Much like car accidents, when semi-truck drivers are negligently operating their large vehicles, there is no limit to where those collisions can occur.

Whether the truck driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs or is violating the hours of service regulations by driving for an unlawful number of consecutive hours, these crashes cause significant injuries and even kill approximately 5,000 people each year across the country.

In Capitol Heights, the primary highway serving our area is Maryland Route 214, which is where other drivers encounter truck traffic regularly, but semi-truck accidents can also occur on Maryland Route 332 that also serves Capitol Heights.

Other common semi-truck accidents occur on MD 214, which extends into the Nation’s Capital and east to Interstate 95/Interstate 495.

If you have been hurt in a crash with a semi-truck, contact our personal injury lawyers in Capitol Heights today to learn who can be held responsible for your injuries, as we may be able to pursue the truck driver, the trucking company, another third-party, or a combination of each for the financial compensation you deserve.

Do Motorcyclists Have to Wear Helmets When Riding in Capitol Heights, Maryland?

Yes. All riders operating a motorcycle in the State of Maryland, including in Capitol Heights, must wear a helmet that conforms to the standards set by the Motor Vehicle Administration.

Eye protection is also required unless the motorcycle has a windshield.

Unfortunately, our motorcycle accident attorneys in Capitol Heights know that even when riders are wearing protective gear, they are no match for a negligent driver who is behind the wheel of a much bigger, much heavier vehicle, which is why their injuries are often so severe, or even catastrophic after a collision occurs.

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, contact our Capitol Heights personal injury lawyers today to learn how we can help you pursue a negligent driver for your financial recovery.
