Personal Injury 

If you were seriously injured or a loved one has died because of the negligent actions of another, you have a right to seek compensation in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.  In these cases, a clear violation of an expected form of standard conduct (standard of care) must be demonstrated and that violation must be shown to be the proximate cause of the injury.

 

Auto Accident Cases:

We will examine the circumstances surrounding your injury to determine who is LIABLE and pursue an outcome that holds the appropriate party accountable and provides you with compensation for the DAMAGES you have suffered.

Who is liable means who caused the accident.  For example, the driver would have had to do something careless, like running a red light, unsafe lane change, driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving too fast, not paying attention etc.

TO ENSURE YOU WILL HAVE THE ACCURATE INFORMATION: Make sure you do the following:

1.  Write down the facts immediately, while it is fresh in your mind.

2.  Take pictures.  (of the cars involved, the scene, any injuries, etc,.)

3. Identify witnesses and get their name, phone number, address and statement.

4. Get a copy of the State of Maryland Accident Report, once it is written.
