How can we help victims of car accidents?
Our personal injury lawyers represent victims who have been injured in a wide range of accidents, including the following:
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. These are the most common issues drivers face:
Distracted driving: This is one of the most common causes of accidents for teenagers and working adults. Adults working in the field may feel the need to respond to emails and texts from the car. Adults may use the car to answer calls, chat with their hands, or converse with other passengers. Another driver could take their eyes off the road for a second, and that is all it takes to cause an accident.
Aggressive driving is when a driver is really angry at others while 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. No matter the nature of the accident, we will help victims recover damages caused by the accident.
How Do 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:
Dangerous Road Conditions
Cargo that is improperly loaded
Trucking Company Negligence
Truck accidents occur in much the same way that car accidents occur. 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. 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 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 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 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 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 are in a precarious position because they must ensure their own vehicles while driving on behalf of these massive 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 often depends on the insurance company and their stance on 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.
