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. 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. 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 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
Cargo that is improperly loaded
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 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 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 could be involved in accidents with municipal or charter buses. 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 may have been sideswiped or rear-ended on the road because drivers were not paying attention to them. Motorcyclists are more at risk when they ride, and their injuries may be even worse after 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. 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?
Because there are many factors to take into account and each accident is unique, there is no clear answer. 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 skilled legal team will keep clients informed about all important developments and the impact they may have on their case. We can give clients a more realistic estimate as the case progresses.
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.
