Top Rated Personal Injury Lawyers

Lonnie M. Greenblatt was named a Maryland Super Lawyer® every year from 2020-2022, designating him as one of the top 5% of attorneys in the state. The same organization named Elnur Veliev a Rising Star every year from 2018-2022, denoting that he was one of the top 2.5% of young attorneys in Maryland five years in a row. 

Compensation Can Be Significant In Maryland and D.C.

Many states limit the amount of potential compensation available in car accident cases. Washington D.C. does not. As the District of Columbia does not places caps on damages, our attorneys can seek very significant compensation for your physical suffering, emotional hardship, medical bills, and more. 

Maryland does have a cap on personal injury damages, however, the limit in a car accident case is $935,000 as of October 1, 2023. For wrongful death car accident cases with multiple beneficiaries, the limit is over $1.3 million. 

Just because Maryland and D.C. allow for major compensation does not make receiving it a guarantee. The other driver's insurance company will try to minimize your payout. Our Rockville lawyers have decades in practice proving our clients' cases and obtaining the most money possible for people who trust their cases to us.

Important Steps to Take Following Your Accident

There are some simple yet incredibly important things you can do to help our attorneys build your case. If you're able to take any of these steps after your auto accident, it can make a significant difference:

Don't Admit Fault

It's natural for many of us to want to apologize following an accident, even if it's not our fault. But it's incredibly important not to apologize to the other driver—this can be considered an admission of fault. Leave it to our car accident lawyers to determine who is really at fault.

Record Specifics

The details of your accident should be recorded: the type of accident, location, weather, date, time, and anything else you think could help your case. If you can, use your phone to take photos of the damage and scene; this evidence can be incredibly beneficial to your case.

Preserve Evidence

If you used your phone to take photos of the accident or collect contact information from witnesses, take a moment to copy and save that information. Upload this evidence to a cloud service, or just email it to yourself. That way, if your phone becomes lost, stolen, or damaged, you have an easily accessible backup.

Attend All Medical Appointments

Car accident victims frequently suffer injuries that don't become apparent until long after the crash. It's entirely possible to feel "fine" immediately after the accident, only to have serious debilitating injuries reveal themselves as time passes. Doctors can identify these injuries before they are apparent to you, and their findings are crucial to your case. In short, don't skip any medical appointments just because you aren't currently in pain.

Washington, D.C., Car Accident Laws 

Car Insurance Requirements

Washington, D.C., requires minimum amounts of car insurance coverage to register and operate a vehicle. At the time of purchase, drivers have the choice to obtain either a no-fault or fault-based policy.

A no-fault policy leads to a more streamlined process for obtaining compensation but has limits on what type of compensation the injured can receive.

Filing an Accident Claim

In Washington, D.C., drivers with a no-fault policy who become accident victims are given a 60-day window to decide whether or not they want to follow the no-fault process or file a car accident claim against the other driver. Choosing to file a claim with the help of our car accident lawyers opens the possibility to receive compensation for pain and suffering, as well as other non-economic damages that are unobtainable through the no-fault system.

Allow Us To Talk to Insurance

Our personal injury attorneys must stress the importance of not talking to insurance company representatives. These people are not your friend and they will likely try to obtain out-of-context statements that can be used to minimize or deny your claim. 

If you are contacted before retaining an attorney, it is wise to politely refuse any pressure to settle your claim and tell them you would like no further contact. Do not speak about your car accident or injuries in any way and provide no personal information beyond your name, address, and phone number.

When you retain our Rockville-based attorneys, we will handle every aspect of communication for you. Do you live in Frederick? We're just over a half hour drive away. Reach out to us so we can stand up to aggressive insurance companies and seek the compensation you deserve.

If you ever are in a car accident, this is the best law firm to go to. I had Elnur Veliev as my lawyer and he is the best of the best for personal injury claims. He is calm, knowledgeable and explains everything in detail. Vagif, his paralegal, is also a rock star and answered all of my questions. Elnur recommended a great physical therapy office to assist me in my recovery and let me know that because my car was new I was also able to get a diminished value claim. The car insurance company tried to get me to sign papers without telling me about diminished value. I highly recommend this law office, and Elnur Veliev in particular. Don’t go to anyone else.
