Most people put away their motorcycles for the winter, but not you. Most people think it’s too dangerous to ride in a dusting of snow, but not you.
Most people think you were asking to get into a Maryland motorcycle accident when you chose to brave the icy roads, but you know better. Now, with thousands of dollars in compensation at stake, how can you prove that you were in the right and deserve to get paid for your injuries?
Anyone who has been seriously injured in a motorcycle crash deserves a chance to plead his or her right to compensation. Unfortunately, if you were riding a motorcycle in the winter, you may very well be facing an extremely skeptical judge or jury. They may automatically assume that you contributed to the cause of the accident simply by taking such a vehicle out in bad weather.
In Maryland, “contributing” to the accident is a death sentence to any compensation you might hope to receive. Unlike other states in which a person who is partially responsible for the wreck still gets at least some compensation for injuries, Maryland takes an all-or-nothing approach.
That means that if the other side can convince the judge or jury that you were at all at fault for the accident in which you were injured, you will end up with absolutely no money to pay your medical bills.
What can you do? With so much at stake, your best bet is to hire an experienced Maryland motorcycle crash attorney to help you prove your innocence in the crash.
Just because you were riding in the winter doesn’t necessarily mean that you were negligent. At Nickelsporn & Lundin we understand that you may rely on your motorcycle for transportation and that you may have taken every precaution possible to avoid a wreck.
We can help you prove your case and get you the compensation you desperately need. We will also work with you to make sure that you are getting the medical care you need while processing your legal claim.
