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. 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 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. A driver could look at the road for a second and 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. The following are common causes of truck accidents:
Driving aggressively or recklessly
Road conditions that can be dangerous
Cargo that is improperly loaded
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. 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 just as aggressive as car drivers, and a truck driver must be even more cautious when driving in bad weather. 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 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 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 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 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 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 an Accident Case Worth?
Because there are many factors to take into account and each accident is unique, there is no clear answer. 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 often depends on the insurance company and their stance on 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.
