What To Do After a Motorcycle Accident

Getting into an accident is overwhelming. It is extremely common to panic after being involved in a collision. There are many important steps you must take to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones. First, seek medical attention immediately.

Then, complete the following:

  • If safe and possible, take photos of the accident and any injuries
  • Record all contact information from involved parties and witnesses
  • Gather witness and police statements
  • Contact your insurance company to inform them of the accident
  • If you are offered a low sum from the insurance company, do not be tempted to settle
  • Get in touch with a lawyer from Britt•Reed Law Offices as soon as possible

After an accident, do not hesitate in going to see a doctor who can assess your injures. Even if you believe the damage was minor, signs of serious complications may not be apparent until long after the initial injury.

Remember that your safety and well-being should always be your first priority and it is always better to err on the side of caution.

Do You Have to Wear a Motorcycle Helmet in Maryland?

In Maryland, all motorcycle riders and passengers are required by law to wear a helmet. This applies to all riders, regardless of their age or riding experience. Helmets must also meet certain specifications in order to be approved by the Department of Transportation (DOT). They must also display a DOT certification label on the helmet. In addition, helmets need to have a chin strap which is properly fastened while riding.

It's important to note that wearing a helmet is just one aspect of motorcycle safety. Riders should also wear protective clothing, as well as gloves and boots.

The purpose of the helmet law in Maryland is to protect riders from head injuries in the event of a crash. Head injuries can be particularly dangerous, as they can cause permanent brain damage or death. Wearing a helmet can help to greatly reduce these risks. By wearing a helmet, you'll not only be complying with the law but also protecting yourself from serious head injuries.
