The D.C. Metropolitan Area and its suburbs of Frederick, Montgomery, Charles and Prince George’s counties are some of the most active in the country. We are seeing local governments take initiatives in creating running and bike trails throughout our area. Sometimes drivers — because of driving distracted or because of a failure to obey other traffic laws — are unaware of the safe bicyclists that are sharing the roadway. Operators of cars are responsible for following all of the traffic laws that could prevent injury to safe bicyclists. If they don’t, their negligence can often cause permanent injuries.

* Many attorneys, insurance companies, and clients call an incident when someone was injured an “accident.” For this reason, our website uses this word. But an incident is not really an "accident" if there were rules in place to keep us all safe, yet someone chose not to follow those rules — and, as a result, someone else was hurt. When you speak with Trollinger Law, you'll find we talk instead in terms of "crashes," "collisions," etc.
