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. 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. 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 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 are particularly devastating and can cause massive property damage and severe injuries. The following are common causes of truck accidents:
Driving aggressively or recklessly
Dangerous Road Conditions
Driving under the influence
Improperly Loaded Cargo
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. 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. 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 aspect of a trucking accident is the way the cargo is loaded. Uneven loads can sometimes cause a truck to tip over. Truck drivers may also drink, use drugs, or drive while asleep. 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 were involved in the following types of 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 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: Drivers who fail to see pedestrians crossing the roadway, veer onto sidewalks, or clip pedestrians crossing in a turning lane are called pedestrian accidents. 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 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 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. 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. 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.
