Bicycle Accidents Caused by Negligent Motorists

Motorists are required to share the road with cyclists. But many motorists don’t even know about this requirement. They think bicyclists should just go ride on the sidewalk to avoid traffic. As is the case in Ocean City, though, it is oftentimes illegal and dangerous to ride a bicycle on a sidewalk.

Many drivers negligently operate their vehicles and fail to pay attention to what is going on around them. This becomes all the more problematic on busy roads, like Coastal Highway, when both bikers and drivers are using the streetway. Motorists may cause collisions by driving too close to bicycle riders, cutting bicycle riders off, or simply not noticing the cyclists.

Injuries Suffered by Bicyclists in Accidents

The injuries suffered by a bicyclist during a bicycle collision are frequently severe. This is because bikes do not protect riders like cars protect their passengers.

Common injuries from bike collisions include:

  1. Broken bones
  2. Nerve damage
  3. Brain injury
  4. Spinal cord injury

The severity and extent of these injuries typically require emergency medical treatment and prolonged rehabilitation efforts. Both can be extremely expensive. However, if you were injured in a bike accident, then you might be able to recover all of your costs through a successful claim or lawsuit filed against the person who hit you.

Compensation for Injured Bicyclists

Many potential clients ask us, “What can bike accident victims recover in Maryland?” The law permits bicycle accident victims to obtain compensation for both economic and non-economic harms. This means an injured cyclist can recover medical bills and costs for future medical care. Economic damages also include lost employment wages and future lost wages. In terms of non-economic recovery, these damages intend to compensate an injured cyclist for the pain, trauma, suffering, and hardship they endured as a result of their injuries. An experienced personal injury attorney can work with you to get a sense of these damages and advocate on your behalf to the insurance company.

Benefits of an Experienced Bicycle Accident Attorney

Insurance companies tend to deny claims by injured cyclists. It seems that these large insurance companies hope that injured cyclists do not have the energy or resources to pursue their claim. Our experienced litigation team can stand up for you and your family. The Salisbury bicycle accident lawyers at Portner & Shure, P.A. have more than 25 years of experience, and our firm is consistently recognized within the legal community for its successes. The American Institute of Trial Lawyers even named Mr. Portner the 2020 Litigator of the Year.

Because of our bilingual litigation team, our firm is able to represent people who speak many different languages, including Spanish, Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese), and Korean. Let us advocate for you while you focus on your recovery. Don’t forget: We receive no fee unless we secure a settlement or judgment in court for you.
