Auto Accidents

Life Changing Injuries

Being injured in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident can change your life forever. In the blink of an eye you may suffer severe, life-altering injuries. These injuries may entitle you to medical benefits, damages, and financial compensation, according to Maryland personal injury law. Rather than attempt to go through this confusing legal process alone, you should consult an experienced Maryland auto accident lawyer.

I have years of experience with accident, injury, and workers' compensation cases. And for all injury cases, I work on a contingency fee basis, meaning I charge no fee unless I secure compensation for you. I proudly serve accident victims all over Maryland, as well as Washington DC

Common Auto Accidents

Some of the more common types of accidents I handle are car vs. car accidents, car vs. truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, tractor trailer accidents, drunk-driving accidents, drugged-driving accidents, texting-while-driving accidents, rear-end collisions and head-on collisions.

Injuries Suffered In Auto Accidents

Over the course of my decades-long legal career, I have handled every possible type of traffic accident and personal injury claim. In car, truck, and motorcycle accidents, the injuries sustained are directly related to the type of accident you were involved in, as well as the speed upon impact. Common injuries in car accidents are whiplash, concussions, soft-tissue injuries, connective-tissue injuries, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and broken bones.

No matter how minor your injuries may seem, it is important that you seek medical care as soon as possible after the accident. This is true even if you experience no physical pain or discomfort following the accident.

After an Auto Accident

Shortly after an accident, you may be approached by the liable parties' insurance company regarding a quick and easy lump-sum settlement. Do not accept this, as a settlement benefits them, not you, your family or your case. Any settlement you are offered will not take into consideration the full dollar value of your claim. By retaining an experienced auto accident attorney, you will be assured that the full dollar amount of your claim will be determined by factors such as:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Current and future lost wage compensation
  • Pain and suffering compensation (if applicable)
  • Vehicle repair costs

Maryland Statute Of Limitations

Maryland law allows 3 years from the date of an accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. If a wrongful death resulted from the accident, the time frame is 3 years from the date of the death to file a lawsuit. It is not advisable to wait nearly that long. The sooner your accident claim can be filed, the better your outcome is likely to be. So don't wait - consult an experienced auto accident lawyer right away.
