Woman Killed in Maryland Motorcycle Accident

By Alpert Schreyer on September 15, 2014

A 50-year-old woman was killed in a Maryland car accident when a 2005 Toyota Solara pulled in front of her 2006 Harley Davidson. According to a news report in The Daily Times, the fatal motorcycle accident occurred on Route 50 at Rockawalkin Road. Officials say the 23-year-old driver of the Toyota failed to yield when pulling out in front of the motorcyclist. The collision caused two other vehicles to crash as well. The motorcyclist was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center where she later died. The incident remains under investigation.

Failure to yield the right-of-way is a major factor in a number of Maryland motorcycle accidents each year. Whether the collision occurs at a city intersection, at a rural four-way stop or at a private driveway, the consequences can range from minor contusions to brain injuries to sudden death for the motorcyclist. Riders have no seat-belts, metal frame or airbags. So they are often ejected and seriously injured.

Maryland’s traffic rules clearly indicate which drivers should yield when entering traffic, when changing lanes and when making a turn. It is not advisable, however, to assume that other motorists will obey the law. When you are riding, make sure you

  • Obey all traffic control devices
  • Use extra caution at intersections
  • Keep your eyes on the roadway and be aware of entrances to private driveways and parking lots
  • Make your intentions clear to nearby motorists
  • Ride defensively

Injured victims of motorcyclists can seek compensation from at-fault parties for damages including medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization, rehabilitation, pain and suffering and emotional distress. Families of deceased victims can pursue a wrongful death claim seeking compensation for damages as well. An experienced Maryland personal injury lawyer will be able to help motorcycle accident victims or their families better understand their legal rights and options.
