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
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. These are the most common issues drivers face:
Distracted driving: This is a leading cause of accident for both teenagers and working adults. Adults working in the field may feel the need to respond to emails and texts from 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: 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 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 could cause whiplash, severe neck pain, and possible 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. The following are common causes of truck accidents:
Driving aggressively or recklessly
Dangerous Road Conditions
Improperly Loaded Cargo
Trucking Company Negligence
Truck accidents occur in much the same way that car accidents occur. The truck’s size is what makes a truck accident different from a car accident. Truck drivers are driven to speed and safety, but they must adhere to strict standards. 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 factor that can lead to a trucking accident involves the way the cargo has been 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 cause a serious accident, and victims deserve to recover the appropriate 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. 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 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 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. As the case progresses, we can provide a more realistic estimate of the damages clients expect to receive.
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.
