How Do We Serve Victims of Car Accidents?
Our personal injury lawyers represent victims who were injured in a variety of accidents.
Emergency vehicle accidents
Poor weather conditions
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. 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 one of the most common causes of accidents for teenagers and working adults. Working adults feel the need to answer emails and respond to texts in the car. Adults might take calls in the car, talk with their hands, or interact with other passengers while they are chatting. 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 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. 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 can be extremely devastating and can cause severe injuries and property damage. These are some of the most common causes of truck accidents.
Dangerous Road Conditions
Improperly Loaded Cargo
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. 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 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 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 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. 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 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 matter, determine who is responsible for the accident, and demand damages from all parties.
What is the Value of an Accident Case?
Because there are many factors to take into account and each accident is unique, there is no clear answer. 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. 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 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.
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.
