Motorcycle Helmet Laws in Maryland
Millions of people enjoy riding motorcycles for transportation and recreation around the country. However, without a metal car body for protection, motorcycle riders are much more likely to be injured or killed in an accident. Therefore, the state of Maryland has made motorcycle helmets mandatory on public roads to make riding safer. Helmets are proven to be the most effective way to prevent motorcycle accident death and traumatic brain injury.
Helmets Save Lives
Some motorcyclists are opposed to the Maryland helmet law, either because they oppose government restrictions or simply do not like wearing a helmet. However, motorcycle helmets are mandatory because they can save your life. Even the most skilled and experienced motorcyclists can be involved in a motorcycle accident.
Car and truck drivers are not always paying enough attention and don’t always share the road with motorcycles. In the event of a motorcycle accident with a distracted automobile driver, your helmet may be what keeps you alive. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident because of a negligent or distracted driver, speak with our Maryland motorcycle accident lawyers to be sure you receive fair compensation.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
The effects of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can include memory loss, loss of sensory or cognitive function, mental illness, coma and even death. These TBI effects and symptoms can persist for years after the injury, or can even be permanent. They can be among the most costly of all motorcycle accident injuries because families have to shoulder the burden of long-term treatment and loss of income.
Your family does not have to carry that heavy financial burden alone if you or a family member has dealt with a traumatic brain injury. Our Maryland motorcycle accident attorneys will help you through the legal process to get compensation from the driver whose negligence caused this terrible injury.
