How Do We Serve 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
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. 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 may use the car to answer calls, chat with their hands, or converse with other passengers. A driver could look at the road for a second and 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. 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.
Road conditions that can be dangerous
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. 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 aspect of a trucking accident is the way the cargo is 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 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 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 in a much more precarious position when they drive, and their injuries could be exponentially worse after even 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. 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 are in a precarious position because they must ensure their own vehicles while driving on behalf of these massive 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. 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 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.
