Potential Compensation for Your Accident
The state of Maryland allows for significant compensation in both personal injury and wrongful death claims, as there is no cap on economic damages – quantifiable monetary losses like medical bills and diminished wages. While there is a cap on noneconomic damages like emotional suffering, this limit is almost $1 million in personal injury claims and even higher in wrongful death lawsuits.
When Hagerstown clients come to our Maryland car accident attorneys, we seek significant compensation in these areas and more:
- Loss of life
- Loss of companionship
- Lost earnings of the deceased
- Lost wages
- Diminished future earning potential
- Medical bills
- Physical pain and emotional distress
- Property damage
We Win Big For Our Clients
Our personal injury attorneys have a long track record of winning car accident cases. For example, we went to court to win a $246,948 jury verdict for an MD client who suffered significant hip damage after they were rear-ended.
The defendant in this accident claim had an insurance policy of just $50,000 – not even enough to cover our client's medical expenses. As we sought more compensation for our client, we sued their own insurance company after they refused to provide the payment they were responsible for. Thankfully for our client, we were able to obtain almost a quarter-million at trial.
Maryland Accident Law Can Be Harsh
We Know How to Navigate It
Unfortunately for car accident victims in Maryland, our state operates under the contributory negligence framework. This legal system enforces that a personal injury or victim who is found to be even 1% at fault for their accident cannot receive any compensation whatsoever.
This may come as a shock if you have experience with personal injury laws in other states, many of which allow victims to be compensated even if they made major driving errors. Do not let our state's harsh laws dissuade you from pursuing your case. Our car accident lawyers have spent decades familiarizing themselves with relevant law, fighting big insurance companies, and winning tough and complex car accident cases.
Don't Delay: The Clock Is Ticking
Statute of limitations laws set hard deadlines for filing a lawsuit. If you miss your deadline, you miss the opportunity to obtain compensation.
In Maryland, you have three years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury claim.
If you are filing a wrongful death lawsuit because of the tragic passing of a family member, you have three years from the date of their passing.
While these deadlines may seem long, time can pass quickly while recovering from a crash or grieving a loved one. An added benefit of starting your lawsuit sooner than later is that it allows our car accident lawyers to begin obtaining evidence while it is still fresh.
Talk to Us Today We Charge Nothing Upfront
Lawyers have a reputation for charging high hourly fees for their services. This prevents some victims from pursuing profitable car accident claims. You should know that our car accident lawyers handle these lawsuits without ever charging a single cent upfront.
We start each car accident claim with a 100% free consultation during which we will get to know you and assess your lawsuit's chances of success. If we do take on your case, we will handle your car accident claim on a contingency basis. This means we only get paid if we obtain a verdict or settlement on your behalf. Our priority is getting the most compensation possible, never running up hourly fees. Reach out to our Rockville personal injury law office to get started.

Crashes Involving Large Trucks Can Be Especially Harmful
In September of 2023, an SUV driving southbound on Interstate 81 near Hagerstown crashed into a tractor-trailer, causing a chain reaction that resulted in a six-vehicle collision, four of which were tractor-trailers. The driver and passenger in the SUV passed away while several other crash victims were injured.
While this crash was not caused by the truck drivers, it is representative of how harmful crashes involving large trucks can be. In fact, according to the non-profit National Safety Council, large trucks are involved in 9% of all fatal crashes despite comprising just 5% of all registered vehicles.
Large truck accidents can also be harmful because of the cargo they carry. In June of 2023, a tanker truck near Hagerstown overturned, causing the evacuation of nearby businesses. If your accident was made worse by the load carried by a large truck, we can seek compensation for your harm.
