Accidents and Injuries Involving Motor Vehicles

If you or a loved one has been injured in a crash involving a motor vehicle, you may be entitled to compensation. We represent victims of nearly any type of crash, including:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents (and other commercial vehicles)
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
  • Municipal vehicle accidents (city buses, police, and emergency vehicles)
  • Fatal motor vehicle accidents (wrongful death)

Maryland has strict liability laws that make it difficult to collect compensation if you share any fault for the crash. Therefore, it is critical to work with an experienced attorney who can help you demonstrate that the other driver was solely negligent in causing the accident and your injuries.

Other Personal Injury Matters

While car accidents are perhaps the most common reason for personal injury lawsuits, our firm can help you pursue legal action after a variety of other accident and injury scenarios, including:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Premises liability cases
  • Dog bites and other animal attacks
  • Products liability (dangerous and defective consumer products)
  • Medical malpractice
  • Spinal cord injury and paralysis
  • Work-related accidents

Our firm takes all personal injury cases on contingency. That means we don’t get paid unless we help you recover money.

5 Things Not To Do After an Accident

Our Frederick, Maryland personal injury lawyer knows that when you have been in some type of personal injury accident, there are certain things you should not do. In fact, what you do in the moments, hours, and days after an accident can make or break your personal injury claim. We want you to be as successful as possible because you deserve compensation when someone else has injured you. If you would like to learn more about what should happen after you have been in an accident, call our office. We want to help you. 

What should you avoid after an accident has happened? 

After being injured, you may be surprised to hear that much of your claim rests on what you do after the accident. Here are a few things that you should avoid doing. 

  • Pointing the Finger. You will have every opportunity to blame the other party when you speak with your attorney and file a personal injury claim. If you are not unconscious, you may quickly become upset or angry while you are at the scene of the accident, especially if you are dealing with a certain level of shock. It is important not to yell at anyone else or play the blame game. 
  • Leaving the Accident Scene. This is one of the worst things you can do and if you were injured in a car accident, it may be illegal. Unless you need immediate medical attention after you were injured, it is best to stay around and gather evidence or get witness’ contact information. 
  • Avoiding Getting Medical Attention. There are very few excuses for not seeing a doctor after you have been injured in some type of accident. Our personal injury lawyer in Frederick, MD can’t state enough how important it is that you get medical attention when you are injured. 
  • Being Scared to Call Insurance. Especially if you are waiting for compensation from the at-fault party’s insurance company, you may need help from your own Personal Injury Protection insurance to cover medical bills and other damages. Speak with your attorney about what you should say to your insurance provider and see how they can help you.
