How Do We Serve 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 lifelong injuries, disability, and 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. 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: 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 could cause whiplash, severe neck pain, and possible 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
Cargo that is improperly loaded
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. Sometimes, the truck can tip over because of an uneven load. Truck drivers might also drink, abuse drugs, or even drive while drowsy behind the wheel. 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 could be involved in accidents with municipal or charter buses. 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 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 hit curbs when they don’t turn far enough. Drivers making protected turns should always look for pedestrians 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 are in a precarious position because they must ensure their own vehicles while driving on behalf of these massive 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?
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. 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 often depends on the insurance company and their stance on denying the claim. Our skilled legal team will keep clients informed about all important developments and the impact they may 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.
