How Do We Serve 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 serious injuries, disability, or 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. The following are the most common issues for drivers:
Distracted driving: This is a leading cause of accident for both 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. 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. No matter the nature of the accident, we will help victims recover damages caused by the accident.
How can 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.
Road conditions that can be dangerous
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. Truck drivers are driven to speed and safety, but they must adhere to strict standards. Trucks should have working brakes that must be inspected every day. 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 as aggressive as car drivers. Truck drivers must be more cautious when driving in adverse weather conditions. Another aspect of a trucking accident is the way the cargo is loaded. Uneven loads can sometimes cause a truck to tip over. 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 have been involved in the following 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 could have been rear-ended or side-swiped by drivers who were not paying enough attention. 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 matter, determine who is responsible for the accident, and demand damages from all 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. However, in some cases, a settlement cannot be reached, and the case will go 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.
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.
