What to do After a Bicycle Accident in Maryland

What to do After a Bicycle Accident in Maryland

Cycling is a favorite in Maryland, especially in its more urban areas, like Baltimore. However, those involved in cycling accidents are generally severely injured as a result. If you have been injured and are now seeking financial compensation, please read on to learn more about what our firm can do for you:

What are the most frequent causes of bicycle accidents?

Bicycle accidents can be caused by many different factors, like poor road or weather conditions, however, you may not be shocked to learn that the most common cause of bicycle accidents is driver negligence. Texting while driving, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and speeding are three of the most common culprits.

What should I do after being injured in an accident?

The first thing you should do is call the police and emergency services, who will report the incident and get you the medical help you need. From here, you will have to hire an experienced attorney, as insurance companies will seldom willfully turn over a large sum of money in compensation, no matter how bad you truly need it. An attorney will fight those companies to win you the money you need to get back on your feet again. The insurance companies may not always be on your side, but we are.

How can an attorney help me win a personal injury claim?

To win a personal injury claim, you will need an attorney who is trained in effectively gathering, and convincingly presenting various forms of evidence. For example, you will need an attorney to uncover and utilize security camera or surveillance footage of the accident as it happened, police reports of the incident, medical documentation, witness statements confirming your claim, and more. Fortunately, our attorneys have years of experience winning personal injury claims for our clients, and now, we are ready to fight for you.

What is the statute of limitations in Maryland?

The statute of limitations in Maryland is three years, which means you will have three years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury claim against a negligent motorist. Do not wait past the three-year mark, for if you do, you will be barred from suing. Our firm is ready to get the claims process started. The sooner you reach out to us, the better. We are here to help.
