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
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. 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. Another driver could take their eyes off the road for a second, and that is all it takes to 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 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 Do 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
Driving under the influence
Improperly Loaded Cargo
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 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 just as aggressive as car drivers, and a truck driver must be even more cautious when driving in bad weather. Another aspect of a trucking accident is the way the cargo is loaded. Sometimes, the truck can tip over because of an uneven load. Truck drivers may also drink, use drugs, or drive while asleep. 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 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. 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 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. 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 in precarious situation because they must maintain their own vehicles while driving for these large companies. We will investigate the case, determine who is liable for the accident, and request damages from all responsible 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 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. 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 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 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.
