Helping those in my community recover fair and reasonable compensation for their injuries, so they can focus on getting better and looking to the future.

I See Motorcyclists When Drivers Don’t

Motorcyclists get a bad rap, often unfairly. The stereotype surrounding these thrill-seekers is that they drive recklessly and without consideration for others on the road. In reality, most motorcycle accidents aren’t the riders’ fault. Negligent drivers cause them. When bad drivers cause motorcycle accidents that injure riders in Baltimore, Rafael Law, LLC, is here to help them pick up the pieces. 

Motorcycle Accidents Have A Staggering Impact

Motorcycle accidents can be particularly damaging. Motorcyclists don’t have the protection of a car body around them, and their safety equipment offers only a marginal safeguard. So, when cars and other larger vehicles collide with motorcycles on the road, riders often suffer extensive damage.

Injuries that commonly result from motorcycle crashes include:

  • Road rash
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Limb loss

Given the catastrophic nature of motorcycle accident injuries, it’s not always possible to fully recover and ride again. I seek to atone for the losses motorcyclists endure due to their accidents.

Frequently Asked Questions About Motorcycle Accident Claims

Here are some of the questions I hear the most from clients:

What type of compensation can I receive for my motorcycle accident injuries in Maryland?

In Maryland, you can receive both compensatory and noncompensatory damages. Compensatory damages are your actual, countable losses, while noncompensatory damages are less tangible. Together, they include:

  • Medical bills: Past, present and future medical expenses related to your injuries.
  • Lost wages: Compensation for income you miss due to your accident.
  • Pain and suffering: Compensation for physical and emotional distress caused by your injuries.
  • Property damage: Reimbursement for repairs or replacement of your damaged motorcycle.

Punitive damages may also be awarded to punish the at-fault party for particularly egregious conduct. As your lawyer, I will work tirelessly to determine the full value of your claim.

What if I am uninjured after my motorcycle collision with a car? Should I still see a doctor?

A thorough exam after any auto accident is wise, even if you feel okay and seem uninjured. The rush of adrenaline you experience during the crash can mask injuries. A medical evaluation can identify hidden problems like internal bleeding or spinal cord injuries.

A prompt medical evaluation establishes a baseline for your health and strengthens your motorcycle accident case.

What if an insurance adjuster calls me after the accident?

Be cautious when speaking with an insurance adjuster after an accident. Their primary goal is to minimize payouts and claims.

It is best to consult an injury lawyer before discussing the accident or your injuries with anyone. Insurance adjusters may ask leading questions and use your statements to limit your claim. An attorney can deal with insurers on your behalf to better protect your interests.

What if I was partially at fault for the motorcycle accident?

Maryland has strict contributory negligence laws, meaning that if you share any degree of fault for the accident, you cannot receive any compensation. I can help. By carefully examining the evidence and aggressively arguing your case, we can still fight for the compensation you deserve when a negligent motorcycle accident leaves you injured.
