Elkridge Bicycle Accident Attorneys
If you or a loved one in Elkridge has been the victim of someone else’s negligence, you may have a right to be compensated for personal injury. Personal injury can be physical, financial, or emotional. Frequent sources of compensable injury are medical malpractice, defective drugs, accidents, and defective products. Your right to bring a lawsuit is different under the laws of each state.
If you have been injured, The Yost Legal Group can help you understand your rights and review the facts of your case for free. Free initial consultations can be over the phone or in person, and are with a licensed lawyer.
Attorneys at The Yost Legal Group have been representing the interests of personal injury clients for over 20 years. We accept your case on a contingency basis, which means you do not pay a fee or expense unless you recover.
The best time to contact The Yost Legal Group is shortly after you have been injured. This provides our team of lawyers and staff the ability to timely investigate your case and preserve evidence that may be important to the success of your claim. If your intention is to seek legal representation, it is only to your benefit to do it early in the process.
We can help by communicating with insurance companies, hospitals, drug companies, or witnesses. Sometimes what you say and do after you have been injured may have a significant impact on the ability to obtain fair compensation.

Bicyclists face a significant risk of injury, and even death, every time they go out on the road. Tragically, thousands of cyclists in the United States are seriously or fatally injured every year in traffic accidents caused by drivers of motor vehicles.
Bicycle accidents are often caused by a motorist’s negligence or inattentiveness on the road. Driver behavior that can lead to serious bike accidents includes:
- A motor vehicle driver turning directly in front of a cyclist without using a turn signal.
- A driver pulling out from a street or driveway in front of a cyclist.
- A driver failing to yield at an intersection, or ignoring a red light or stop sign.
- A driver that is distracted or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
