How can we help victims of car accidents?
Our personal injury lawyers represent victims who were injured in a variety of accidents.
Emergency vehicle accidents
Poor weather conditions
Texting while driving
Car accidents can cause lifelong injuries, disability, and even death. Chain reactions are where drivers are caught up in multi-vehicle accidents. Or, they may be victims to road rage. If you have been in an accident, our Baltimore car accident lawyers will represent you. These are the most common issues drivers face:
Distracted driving: This is one of the most common causes of accidents for teenagers and working adults. Adults working in the field may feel the need to respond to emails and texts from the car. Adults may use the car to answer calls, chat with their hands, or converse with other passengers. A driver could look at the road for a second and cause an accident.
Aggressive driving: This occurs when a driver is truly enraged by the people around them when driving. Road rage can escalate to the point where a driver is involved an accident or attacked from another driver.
Rear-end collisions: These accidents occur because people cannot make emergency stops, are not paying attention, or because they were rear-ended by someone else. Even a slow-moving accident can cause whiplash, severe neck pain and disability. We will help victims to recover damages from the accident, regardless of the nature.
How Do We Help Victims of Truck Accidents?
These accidents can be extremely devastating and can cause severe injuries and property damage. The following are common causes of truck accidents:
Driving aggressively or recklessly
Dangerous Road Conditions
Driving under the influence
Cargo that is improperly loaded
Trucking Company Negligence
Truck accidents happen in the same way as car accidents. The difference between a truck accident and a car accident is the immense size of the truck. Although truck drivers are trying to get where they need to go as fast as possible, they are held to high standards in terms of safety protocols and safe driving. Every day, truck brakes must be checked. Trucking companies must keep their vehicles in good condition, but drivers can be distracted because they are listening to their CB radio, getting directions from the dispatch office, and/or trying to drive as quickly as possible.
Truck drivers can be just as aggressive as car drivers, and a truck driver must be even more cautious when driving in bad weather. Another aspect of a trucking accident is the way the cargo is loaded. Sometimes, the truck can tip over because of an uneven load. Truck drivers may also drink, use drugs, or drive while asleep. Any type of impaired driving can lead to serious accidents, and victims deserve the right to recover the damages.
Accidents involving Other Vehicles
Our firm proudly represents clients who were involved in the following types of accidents:
Train Accidents: Drivers might have been hit by a train where a “no crossing” signal was present, or the driver might have been pushed onto the tracks by another car.
Bus accidents: Drivers may be involved in an accident with a municipal or charter bus. At the same time, the passengers on these buses have a right to compensation if they are hurt or killed because of the driver’s or bus company’s negligence.
Motorcycle Accidents: Motorcyclists may have been sideswiped or rear-ended on the road because drivers were not paying attention to them. Motorcyclists are more at risk when they ride, and their injuries may be even worse after a minor accident.
Pedestrian accidents: Drivers who fail to see pedestrians crossing the roadway, veer onto sidewalks, or clip pedestrians crossing in a turning lane are called pedestrian accidents. Truck drivers often hit curbs when they don’t turn far enough. Drivers making protected turns should always look for pedestrians allowed to cross. In like manner, pedestrians should be held accountable if they dart in front of a driver or do not obey crossing signals.
Uber/Lyft Accidents: Uber/Lyft drivers are in a precarious position because they must ensure their own vehicles while driving on behalf of these massive companies. We will investigate the case, determine who is liable for the accident, and request damages from all responsible parties.
What is the Value of an Accident Case?
There is no clear-cut answer to this question because there are many factors to consider, and every accident is different. An experienced lawyer will be able to provide victims with a ballpark estimate of what they can expect to recover, but this number is likely to change if the case goes to trial. Most cases end in a settlement agreement between the victim and the negligent party’s insurance before they go to trial. In some cases, however, a settlement is not possible and the case will proceed to trial. This is often dependent on the position of the insurance company in denying the claim. Our experienced legal team will keep clients updated about any important developments and the possible impact they might have on their case. We can give clients a more realistic estimate as the case progresses.
Depending on the nature of the injuries and the level of treatment, a typical car accident case can be resolved in as little as six months, or as long as four years in the state of Maryland. Other factors that can impact the amount of time it can take to resolve a case include when treatment stops and what court the case gets filed in, as district court cases tend to be resolved sooner.
