How Do We Serve 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 serious injuries, disability, or 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. Our Baltimore car accident lawyers will fight for you if you’ve been injured in an accident. The following are the most common issues for drivers:
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 might take calls in the car, talk with their hands, or interact with other passengers while they are chatting. A driver could look at the road for a second and 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: 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 can we help victims of truck accidents?
These accidents can be extremely devastating and can cause severe injuries and property damage. These are some of the most common causes of truck accidents.
Driving aggressively or recklessly
Dangerous Road Conditions
Improperly Loaded Cargo
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 maintain their trucks in good condition. However, drivers can become distracted by listening to their CB radio or trying to drive as fast as possible while following directions from the dispatcher.
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 might also drink, abuse drugs, or even drive while drowsy behind the wheel. 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 have been involved in the following 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 could have been rear-ended or side-swiped by drivers who were not paying enough attention. 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. 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 in precarious situation because they must maintain their own vehicles while driving for these large companies. We will investigate the matter, determine who is responsible for the accident, and demand damages from all parties.
What is an Accident Case Worth?
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. 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 skilled legal team will keep clients informed about all important developments and the impact they may have on their case. As the case progresses, we can provide a more realistic estimate of the damages clients expect to receive.
A typical car accident case can be resolved within six months depending on the severity of the injuries and the level or treatment. In Maryland, it can take up to four years. 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.
