Your teenage daughter begged you to let her take a spin with her boyfriend on his new motorcycle. Reluctantly, you agreed.

Now, there’s been an accident. She’s hurt, badly. As you rush to the hospital, your only thought is making sure your baby girl will be OK.

Once the initial trauma has passed, your thoughts turn to getting back at the person who dared to hurt your precious little girl.

Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident, the person responsible for the Maryland motorcycle crash may be facing restrictions on his or her driving privileges as well as other charges.

“Good,” you think, “but how does that help my daughter?” What can you, as a parent, do to make sure this accident doesn’t completely wreck her future?

Motorcycle crashes often end in serious injury. A passenger can easily be thrown from the bike, resulting in serious injury. Add the fact that many passengers don’t have access to a helmet, and the injury can result in permanent damage or even death.

Whether the boyfriend made a terrible mistake that caused your daughter’s serious injury or whether another driver failed to pay attention to nearby traffic, you have every right to sue the responsible party for compensation for your child’s injury.

A minor (anyone under age 18) can make a claim up until the day before his or her 21st birthday for injury resulting from a motorcycle accident anytime during childhood. Available compensation includes:

  • Payment for medical bills, including therapy
  • Payment for future medical care (specifically when permanent damage is evident)
  • Additional compensation for pain and suffering

This is just a starting point. A Maryland motorcycle crash attorney can help you determine what is necessary to give your child back her future.
