Careless and reckless driving puts motorcyclists at risk

Negligence or misconduct by other drivers has the potential to cause serious injury or death to motorcycle riders. Examples of negligent and reckless behavior include:

  • Boxing in a motorcycle between two vehicles
  • Cutting off motorcyclists while changing lanes or turning
  • Distracted driving; texting, using a cell phone, or just not paying attention while driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI)
  • Failing to notice a motorcycle in a blind spot
  • Opening a car door into traffic without checking first
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating, following a motorcycle too closely

Liability a city or state government

Government departments are responsible for repairing and maintaining safe road conditions. Dangerous road conditions should be corrected, and drivers should be warned of hazards. When a city or state fails to properly maintain a road or provide adequate warning of dangerous conditions, motorcyclists are at risk for accidents and injuries. Dangerous conditions on poorly maintained roads include:

  • Accumulating snow
  • Broken traffic lights
  • Debris on road
  • Dim lighting or lack of lighting
  • Faded lane paint
  • Icy spots
  • Inadequate construction site warning
  • Insufficient shoulder for pulling over safely
  • Missing or hidden street signs
  • Potholes
  • Raised manhole covers
  • Slick surfaces
  • Uneven pavement

If dangerous roads caused your injury or loss, our highly skilled attorneys will fight for your right to full and fair compensation from those responsible for the unsafe conditions. Procedures for filing a claim against a city, state or federal government differ from suing an individual or private corporation. Our Baltimore motorcycle accident lawyers have extensive experience handling injury claims against negligent government workers and ineffective government agencies. We aggressively advocate for your right to financial compensation.
