A Track Record of Success Verdicts and Settlements for Car Accident Victims
Our client suffered hip damage from a car accident that resulted in the need for a replacement and medical expenses that exceeded $100,000. After obtaining the full limits of our client's policy, our personal injury lawyer took the client’s own insurance carrier to court after they refused to pay more. We won a jury verdict in favor of our client.
We secured $125,000 for a client who was injured in a double rear-end auto accident. After the original at-fault driver fled the scene, a second car rear-ended our client’s vehicle while she was still in it. Our client suffered a concussion and injuries to her face and ankle. Our car accident attorney filed insurance claims against both of the at-fault drivers, obtaining the maximum amounts available under the insurance policy limits.
Our car accident lawyer obtained a settlement of $125,000 for another client who was also rear-ended. When our client exited her car to view the damage, she was struck by another car. She sustained injuries to her hip and dealt with ongoing emotional trauma because of the accident. Our lawyers obtained the policy limit on both at-fault drivers' insurance.

Understanding Contributory Negligence What This Means for Maryland Residents
Maryland is one of five states to put a contributory negligence doctrine into effect. Under this state law, you can't legally recover compensation from an at-fault party if your own actions also contributed to the accident. If your actions contributed to your accident in any way, your car accident case will likely be thrown out. If you think your actions contributed to your accident, but you're not certain, reach out to our law firm so we can determine the best course of action.

Building Your Case
"Our goal is to help victims of negligence obtain the fair compensation they deserve."
Don't Speak to Insurance Companies Let Us Do the Talking
After a car accident, you will likely be contacted by an insurance company representing the other driver hoping to get a statement from you. Don't say anything to them or accept any of their offers. Insurance companies are looking out for their bottom line, and that means using your own words against you and getting you to settle for less than you deserve.
Instead, put a car accident lawyer on your side. Our Rockville law firm serving Frederick will handle all communication with the insurance companies to get you a fair settlement. Get started by reaching out today.
