WE SUPPORT YOU WITH DIFFERENT TYPES OF INJURY CASES

DO YOU HAVE A CASE?

THE ANSWER IS YES IF YOU:

01.

Case 1 – The Motor Vehicle Accident

You were involved in a motor vehicle accident as a driver or passenger, where the incident was caused by another party

02.

Case 2 – The Bicyclist OR Pedestrian

You were struck by a vehicle while responsibly riding your bike or legally walking through a crosswalk

03.

Case 3 – The Slip & Fall

You’ve experienced a slip and fall in a public place such as an office, store, or unshoveled walkway in front of a property

04.

Case 4 – The Work Related Injury

You may have a case if you suffered injuries during your work hours, especially if the work conditions were unsafe. It also applies if you were not provided with the necessary protective equipment or training, leading to your injuries.

05.

Case 5 – The Dog Bite

You were bitten by a dog, especially when the dog was not properly restrained or was known to be aggressive. In many jurisdictions, dog owners are held responsible for the actions of their pets, particularly if they result in injury to others.

OUR PROCESS IS SIMPLE:

1

We Collect The Evidence

At this stage, your focus should be on treatment and recovery, while we concentrate on collecting all the necessary evidence to support your case. This includes medical records, police reports, photographs, and any other relevant documentation.

2

We File Demand

Once all medical care is complete and we’ve gathered all the necessary evidence for your case, we prepare a robust package of evidence, known as a demand, for evaluation by the defendant’s carrier. This approach lends your case significant credibility and willigness to get your case resolved fairly.

3

We Negotiate

Often, the defendant’s carrier falls short. They may not want to pay, offering you a low-ball settlement because they might view your case as a potential “scam.” This is when you need a true-born negotiator to present your case convincingly, and we are here for you! We strive to secure the maximum result you deserve in your area.

4

We Settle

A fundamental principle of our firm is “never settling for less.” We strive to achieve the highest possible result for you. Often, we can resolve matters without needing to go to court. However, if your case requires court intervention, we are prepared to grab our sword and shield to FIGHT FOR YOU IN COURT. YOU NEED A BATTLEGROUND ATTORNEY who has the capability to resolve things in and out of court – AND We Are Here For You!

Don’t settle for LESS. Don’t wait until it’s too LATE. CHOOSE OUR FIRM TODAY!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 

What should I do if I just got involved in a car accident?

Call the police immediately. If you are injured and feel even the slightest pain, request an ambulance. In many jurisdictions, the police will not prepare a police report unless you report injuries on site. If you can safely get out of your vehicle, take pictures of your vehicle and the other person’s vehicle. Ensure that you take close shots of the damages as well as wide shots so that the tags are visible. If the accident does not involve the police, make sure that you collect the insurance policy of the person that struck you, a picture of their driver’s license, and their current address. If we need to file a suit against them in the future, the current address will be highly valuable. Then give us a call at (301) 330-4444 to discuss your rights and the game plan to help you avoid becoming a victim of the process.

Should I always file a police report, even if the crash injury was minor?

YES. Maintaining a detailed record of the incident can significantly help in determining who was at fault and consequently, enhance the prospects of a successful outcome for your case. The more information and evidence you can provide about the incident, the simpler it becomes to establish liability. This step is essential in ensuring a win for your case.

Why do I need a lawyer?

You don’t just need any lawyer. You need a lawyer that has extensive experience dealing with a wide array of personal injury scenarios. You need a lawyer that is highly respected with the courts and knows every nut and bolt of the personal injury process. You need a lawyer that KNOWS how to play the chess match game with the insurance company to win. Don’t enter the ring to fight Goliath without knowing how to battle it. Call us. We have the sling ready to defeat it for you.

Who pays for my medical bills and what determines the value of my case?

Our objective is to hold the defendant’s insurance provider accountable. We compile all your medical expenses and present them to the insurance firm in a document we refer to as a demand. The compensation our team seeks from the insurance company is calculated considering various factors such as medical costs, lost earnings, compensation for damages, our legal fees, and any other costs associated with your case. Our constant endeavor is to negotiate the maximum possible compensation to cover your medical bills once your case is settled.

What does strict liability rules mean in the DMV?

This implies that if the insurance company can successfully demonstrate that the victim is at least 1% responsible for the accident, the claim could potentially be denied. The victim may also face the risk of losing if the case is taken to court. The insurance company can gather the necessary evidence to prove this level of fault through various means, one of which includes obtaining a recorded statement. This statement could potentially reveal details or information that incriminates the victim, thereby supporting the insurance company’s case.

What happens if I am in a hit and run and I am injured?

You still have the right to immediate medical care. Call 911 and wait for the police and ambulance to arrive. Sometimes, our clients are able to capture a photo of the vehicle leaving the scene. However, this isn’t always possible. If you’ve collected any evidence, no matter how minimal, share it with the police. They may be able to locate the defendant. If you couldn’t collect any evidence, request a police report and seek immediate medical attention. Fortunately, in the DMV, drivers have a special coverage called “uninsured motorist”. This coverage compensates for damages in situations where the person responsible for the accident flees the scene. Remember, you have the right to compensation and this should not increase your insurance premiums, as you are not at fault for the accident.

What does it mean, "If I don't win, I don't pay"?

Our compensation is strictly results-oriented, meaning we only receive payment if we successfully settle your case. The client does not have to worry about paying attorney fees out of pocket. Instead, our remuneration comes from the settlement obtained from the insurance company, ensuring the client receives their due compensation for pain and suffering, and their medical expenses and lost wages are covered.

Why should I avoid giving my insurance company a recorded statement on my own ?

The reason to be cautious is that the insurance company will likely pose strategic questions designed to catch you off guard. These questions could potentially lead you to inadvertently say something that could be used against you in a court of law. This tactic is often part of their strategy to protect their own interests, and it’s crucial to be aware of this when dealing with them.

How long do I have to wait before I start treatment?

Seek immediate medical attention after an accident or as soon as symptoms appear. Any delay may provide insurance companies with an opportunity to argue that your injury could have occurred due to other reasons between the accident and the first treatment. The longer you wait, the weaker your case becomes. There have been instances where we had to decline a case because it was too late for treatment, making it almost impossible to link the injury to the accident. Therefore, if you are symptomatic, immediate medical care and timely action are crucial.

What is PIP?

PIP is optional no-fault auto insurance in Maryland, providing financial benefits regardless of who caused the accident. Benefits: It covers medical expenses, lost wages, and essential services like rehabilitation or childcare. No-Fault System: This allows for quick benefits without needing to prove accident fault, which is crucial when medical bills accumulate. Optional Coverage: It can be purchased or waived as part of an auto insurance policy. Though waiving it saves on premiums, PIP can be vital in accidents. Limits and Coverage Amounts: Coverage limits exist, with the minimum offering in Maryland at $2,500. Higher limits can be chosen for better protection.

How does my attorney decide whether to file a suit?

As attorneys, we assess the entire situation to decide if filing a lawsuit is beneficial in your case. A common reason to file a suit is when the insurance company persists in offering a lowball settlement, despite our knowledge that a lawsuit could yield a higher value for our clients. We also consider litigation if the case is immediately denied and we believe that legal action could achieve fair results. Furthermore, if the insurance company is uncooperative, we are ready to file a suit. There are more reasons why but these are the most common.

How do I receive my compensation?

Once your case is resolved, you’ll need to sign a release. This is a formal, legally binding document stating that you accept the negotiated offer. In return, you agree to close the claim, freeing the defendant from any future claims related to this case. After completing these formalities, the agreed settlement will be disbursed. You’ll receive a check from us reflecting the agreed amount of your settlement.

Will my insurance rates go up if I use my insurance to help me ?

According to the legal statute, it is important to understand that your rates cannot be arbitrarily raised if you were not responsible for the incident. This means, if the fault does not lie with you, the insurance company or any other entity does not have the legal right to increase your rates.
