Many Maryland residents enjoy riding their motorcycles. When operated responsibly, a motorcycle is a safe, fun way of enjoying the open road and experiencing the freedom that's so often associated with a motorcycle.
However, the tragic reality for motorcyclists is that they can do everything right and still find themselves the victim of a severe personal injury, all because another driver made an avoidable mistake.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
When you ride your motorcycle, you do so responsibly. You obey all relevant laws, drive defensively and wear all necessary protective gear. But this won't protect you when the driver of a larger vehicle behaves recklessly or negligently.
A motorcycle accident can be a complicated thing, but in too many cases the root cause of such an accident is quite simple: negligence. You have the right as a legally licensed motorcyclist to use the road, and you also have the right to pursue justice and compensation if you are hurt in an accident caused by someone else's negligence.
Specific causes of motorcycle accidents can include:
• Another driver's failure to notice a motorcycle
• A conscious decision not to share the road with a motorcycle
• Speeding or other forms of reckless driving
• Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
None of these are acceptable. And as a motorcycle driver, you are uniquely vulnerable in these accidents. You have no protection in the event of a crash, and the injuries that result from a motorcycle accident are often catastrophic.
Cohen & Dwin understand the seriousness of the injuries you're facing, and we understand the financial consequences of these injuries. Our experienced lawyers can help you pursue compensation for your medical expenses, as well as for pain and suffering and other damages.
