Fall is in full swing, and many Maryland residents are finding ways to enjoy the outdoors before cold weather sets in. Riding a 4-wheeler or dirt bike can be fun, but riders should always take care to follow laws and wear a helmet. Though such vehicles are typically for recreational driving, a crash can result in a serious injury that is anything but fun.
Recently, two men were riding dirt bikes on a paved road in a Maryland neighborhood. One of the drivers also had a female passenger on board. The bikers collided, and a horrific crash left both men seriously injured. The female passenger died as a result of her injuries.
Police say that an investigation is underway and may result in the discovery of evidence that could lead to criminal charges against one or both of the drivers. As they continue to gather information and speak to witnesses, they will try to determine the cause of the crash. If injuries were caused by the actions of a specific party, the victim, or representative of a victim’s estate in the event of death, may want to look into options for legal recourse.
A victim who has suffered a serious injury may want to reach out to an experienced personal injury attorney for a bit of help. An attorney can help a client navigate the legal process and bring a civil case against the party at fault. A successful suit may result in a verdict that includes monetary compensation for a victim’s suffering.
