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
Weather conditions that are not favorable
Texting while driving
Car accidents can cause lifelong injuries, disability, and 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. These are the most common issues drivers face:
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. 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 where a driver is involved an accident or attacked from 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. We will help victims to recover damages from the accident, regardless of the nature.
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:
Road conditions that can be dangerous
Driving under the influence
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. 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 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. 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 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 may have been sideswiped or rear-ended on the road because drivers were not paying attention to them. 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 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. 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 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.
