Baltimore-Washington Area Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Fighting For Your Rights In The Local Community For Over 20 Years

[motorcycle photo]If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, you’ll need an experienced lawyer to fight for your rights. We can help. The law offices of Joseph H. Ostad have gone to battle for motorcycle accident victims for more than 20 years. While laws governing motorcycle accidents are similar to those regarding automobile accidents there are some major differences which are crucial to your ability to make a legitimate claim. As motorcyclist, you have special rights. An experienced attorney, familiar with the rules and regulations governing motorcycles on our roads, can be critical for the success of your case.

For example, most motorcyclists are not aware that a significant percentage of motorcycle accidents involving automobiles find the automobile driver at fault. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly 70% of all motorcycle-automobile collisions occur in intersections whereby the auto driver did not recognize the motorcycle’s right of way.

There is also the possibility that a defective motorcycle design or negligence by the manufacturer played role in an accident. An experienced personal injury attorney will be familiar and up-to-date with all manufacturers’ recalls and product liability issues that have occurred in the past. Other factors such as driving conditions and weather conditions play an integral part in determining fault and compensation. That’s why it’s so important to have experienced representation.

For more than 20 years, our law office has represented numerous citizens involved in motorcycle accidents in the Baltimore-Washington area. Make no mistake: Handling accident cases involving motorcycles can require additional skill and expertise. For example, how do you determine fault when there is such a variety of driving and road conditions … like inclement weather, bike stability, potholes, oil slicks, puddles and debris… that can be instrumental in causing an accident? Thankfully, the law firm of Joseph H. Ostad has handled enough of these cases throughout our 20 year history, that we can successfully overcome these challenges. More importantly, we’ll do whatever it takes under the law to fight for your rights and get you just and fair compensation you deserve.
