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
Poor weather conditions
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. 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 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 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. These are some of the most 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. 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 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 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 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 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 case, determine who is liable for the accident, and request damages from all responsible 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 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 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 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.
