What To Do If You Are Involved in a Motorcycle Accident

Due to the nature of motorcycles and the limited amount of protection a person has while riding, accidents involving motorcycles can have devastating impacts on a person’s health and well-being. If your accident was caused by the negligence of another person, you may have the rights to damages. If you are involved in a motorcycle accident you should:

  • Move to safety: if possible, move away from the road to a safe area and try to secure the safety of the others involved.
  • Call the police: once the police arrive on the scene, give them your account of the accident if you are able. Try to remain calm and give a factual statement of the events. Ask the officer for their name and badge number so you can claim a copy of the police report for your records.
  • Seek medical care: since many motorcycle accidents involve serious injuries, it’s important to seek medical care. Even if you believe you are okay, you should still be assessed by a doctor for any internal or less obvious injuries.
  • Gather evidence: photographs from the scene of the accident can be important evidence in your case. If possible, write down the contact information for any witnesses to the accident as their testimony may help your case.
  • Contact Castro Law for a free consultation to explore your options.

Severe Injuries Suffered in Motorcycle Crashes

Motorcycle riders are exposed to the worst that traffic collisions can do. Riders are many times more likely to suffer a catastrophic or permanent injury than other motorists. Even a low-speed collision involving a motorcyclist who is wearing full protective gear could result in lifelong harm.

A few examples of catastrophic injuries often recorded in motorcycle crashes:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injury and paralysis
  • Permanent disfiguration
  • Broken limbs

Studying Maryland Motorcycle Crash Data

To boost the validity of your motorcycle accident claim, our attorneys will look wherever possible for relevant evidence. In some cases, knowing Maryland Department of Transportation (DOT) motorcycle accident data can increase the strength of your claim. If showing a pattern of reckless driving across the state could be useful for your claim, then we will work diligently to integrate it into your claim.

Here is a cursory glance at 2018 Maryland DOT motorcycle crash statistics:

  • Total: 1,268
  • Injuries reported: 1,067
  • Deaths reported: 58

What is most significant about this information is that motorcyclists are injured in approximately 85% of crashes. On average, drivers of cars, trucks, and SUVs report an injury in about half of all cases. Riding a motorcycle is clearly more dangerous for riders, and motorists around them must acknowledge that added danger and drive more carefully.
