A Track Record of Success Verdicts and Settlements for Car Accident Victims

$246,948

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.

$125,000

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.

$125,000

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.

Motor Vehicle Accidents Occur Too Often in Frederick, MD

With a complex network of highways, Frederick is a major trucking route. Because of the large volume of traffic from commercial trucks and other vehicles, accidents occur fairly often, resulting in property damage, serious injuries, and even death. Some recent accidents that have occurred in the area include:

Tractor-Trailer Crash Closes I-70

On December 18, 2023, a tractor-trailer hit bridge construction, knocking metal scaffolding into westbound I-70. At least 12 vehicles were damaged and officials had to close westbound I-70 and Maryland Route 75 temporarily.

Car Crash With Injuries and Fatalities

On August 5, 2023, a woman lost her life on I-70 near Braddock Heights when her Toyota Corolla was hit head-on by a Mercedes that crossed the median. The driver of the Mercedes then hit a truck head-on. The woman in the Toyota Corolla was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Mercedes was flown to a trauma center and the driver of the truck was taken to a local hospital.

Car Collision Results in Death

On October 18, 2023, a 20-year-old man lost his life in a car accident at the intersection of Buckeystown Pike and Executive Way, where another man lost his life just two weeks prior. New traffic patterns, lane expansions, and an increase in commercial truck traffic on Route 85 may be the cause of some of the recent motor vehicle accidents in the area.

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.

"Excellent in their knowledge and honesty throughout whole process. They really make you feel like family while working in your best interest. Great staff all around. I can’t say how glad I am to have chosen this firm to handle my case. They answer any questions or fears you may have about the process... Hands down best experience I have ever had with dealing with the aftermath of an accident. Their integrity and professionalism is outstanding! Thanks again for all y’all hard work and fighting for my case to get the results needed." Johnnie Horner

Building Your Case

To recover compensation in Maryland, you must be able to prove that another driver was completely at fault for your auto accident. You can help our car accident attorneys build your case by:
"Our goal is to help victims of negligence obtain the fair compensation they deserve."
"Our goal is to help victims of negligence obtain the fair compensation they deserve."

Taking Notes

Write down the specifics of your accident: the date, time, weather, location, and anything else you think could help your case. Taking note of small details now can help our team build a compelling case later.

Collecting Evidence

Photos, videos, police reports, and eyewitness testimonies can all help build your case. We encourage you to take photos of your vehicle and gather whatever evidence you can. Back up this data on a device other than your phone or email it to yourself. Our car accident attorneys can look into the background of the other driver and check for factors that could have led to the accident like intoxication.

Attending Medical Appointments

Visit a doctor and allow them to document your injuries. Even if you don't think you've suffered serious injuries from your accident, visiting a doctor sometimes uncovers injuries that aren't immediately apparent. These appointments also help our car accident attorneys prove how serious your injuries are or could be in the futur.

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.
