In Maryland motorcycle accidents do not always involve the motorcycle colliding with, or being struck by, another vehicle. Often times a motorcycle accident is the result of the motorcycle driver attempting to get out of the way of another vehicle being driven by a reckless or distracted driver. By trying to avoid being hit the motorcyclist can inadvertently end up in a single vehicle motorcycle accident. The resulting crash does not automatically mean that the motorcycle driver was at fault.

Single Vehicle Motorcycle Accident Causes
Operating or riding a motorcycle may be a very liberating means of transportation but it also comes with risks. Sometimes other drivers do not properly share the road or highway with a motorcycle. If someone driving a car or truck is driving recklessly it is up to you to avoid being hit by them. Avoiding being hit can force you to collide with other objects on the street or roadway such as: buildings, trees, parked cars, guardrails and medians. Other causes of single vehicle motorcycle crashes are hazardous roadways, loose gravel, inclement road conditions and construction zone debris.
Determining Liability In A Single Vehicle Motorcycle Accident
Establishing who is at fault in a single vehicle motorcycle accident in Maryland is a very complex task. Often times the driver whom you swerved to avoid hitting continues driving down the road after your accident. Speaking with witnesses and bystanders is often very crucial in a single vehicle motorcycle accident. If your accident was due to construction zone debris, loose gravel or perhaps a dangerous or uneven stretch of road liability may fall on the state, contractors, subcontractors and municipalities. A skilled and experienced Maryland motorcycle accident attorney will determine who is liable for your injuries and help you recover any financial losses such as medical bills, medication costs, pain and suffering.
