How Do We Serve Victims of Car Accidents?
Our personal injury lawyers represent victims who have been injured in a wide range of accidents, including the following:
Driving under the influence
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. 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 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 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 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
Cargo that is improperly loaded
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 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 as aggressive as car drivers. Truck drivers must be more cautious when driving in adverse weather conditions. Another factor that can lead to a trucking accident involves the way the cargo has been 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 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. 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 hit curbs when they don’t turn far enough. Drivers making protected turns should always look for pedestrians 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 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 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. 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 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 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.
