How can we help victims of car accidents?
Our personal injury lawyers represent victims who were injured in a variety of accidents.
Driving under the influence
Emergency vehicle accidents
Weather conditions that are not favorable
Texting while driving
Car accidents can cause lifelong injuries, disability, and even death. These accidents could include chain reactions where drivers are caught in the middle of a multi-vehicle accident, or they could be victims of 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. Working adults feel the need to answer emails and respond to texts in the car. Adults may use the car to answer calls, chat with their hands, or converse with other passengers. Another driver could take their eyes off the road for a second, and that is all it takes to cause an accident.
Aggressive driving is when a driver is really angry at others while driving. Road rage can escalate to the point at which a driver is involved in an accident or attacked by another driver.
Rear-end collisions are caused by people who cannot make emergency stops, who are not paying attention or because they were rearended by another person. Even a slow-moving accident can cause whiplash, severe neck pain and disability. No matter the nature of the accident, we will help victims recover damages caused by the accident.
How Do We Help Victims of Truck Accidents?
These accidents are particularly devastating and can cause massive property damage and severe injuries. These are some of the most common causes of truck accidents.
Driving aggressively or recklessly
Road conditions that can be dangerous
Driving under the influence
Improperly Loaded Cargo
Trucking Company Negligence
Truck accidents happen in the same way as car accidents. The truck's size is what makes a truck accident different from a car accident. 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 could have been struck by a train that did not have a "no cross" signal, or pushed onto tracks by another vehicle.
Bus accidents: Drivers may be involved in an accident with a municipal or charter bus. The passengers on these buses also have the right to compensation if they are injured or killed by the driver or bus company.
Motorcycle Accidents: Motorcyclists may have been sideswiped or rear-ended on the road because drivers were not paying attention to them. Motorcyclists are in a much more precarious position when they drive, and their injuries could be exponentially worse after even a "minor" accident.
Pedestrian Accidents: Pedestrian accidents occur when drivers do not see pedestrians crossing the road, veer onto the sidewalk, or clip a pedestrian who is crossing in a turning lane. Truck drivers often clip curbs because they did not turn out far enough, and drivers who are making protected turns must always look for pedestrians who are also allowed to cross. As with truck drivers, pedestrians must be held responsible if they cross in front of them or don't 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 can give victims a rough estimate of the amount they can expect to receive, but this number will likely change if the case goes through trial. In most cases, the victim and the negligent party's insurer agree on a settlement amount 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 affect the time it takes to resolve a case are when treatment stops and which court the case is filed in. District court cases tend to be resolved quicker.
