Please continue reading and reach out to our experineced Maryland personal injury attorneys to learn more about motorcycle helmet laws in Maryland and how we can help you if you are ever injured in a motorcycle accident. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the motorcycle helmet laws in Maryland?

The motorcycle helmet laws in Maryland are very straightforward. They simply state that if you ride a motorcycle, you must wear a helmet at all times. Additionally, if your motorcycle does not have a protective windshield, you are also required, by law, to wear goggles or protective eyewear.

How do I know if I am entitled to compensation after an injury in Maryland?

If you are injured in Maryland and wish to win a personal injury claim, you and your Maryland personal injury attorney will have to gather and present enough evidence to satisfy the burden of proof. Some of the most useful forms of evidence can include pictures of any damage to your vehicle, medical documentation, police reports of the accident, security camera footage of the accident occurring, witness statements corroborating your claim, and more. Our experienced Maryland personal injury attorneys can help you fight for the compensation you deserve and need to recover after being seriously injured in a motorcycle accident. 

How long will I have to sue someone for an injury in Maryland?

If you are injured in Maryland, you must not wait to sue the party responsible. While you may wish to wait and see if your injuries heal on their own, this is usually not the best idea, as there is a statute of limitations in place. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland is, generally, three years, you will, generally, have three years from the date of your accident to sue the party responsible. If you wait any longer than three years, there is a  very good chance that you will be time-barred from suing. Our firm is here to help you through every step of the claims process ahead–all you have to do is ask.
