How to Win a Personal Injury Claim

There are many types of personal injury lawsuits, including but not limited to car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall cases, and medical malpractice claims. Regardless of the specifics of your incident, the following must be proven to win a case:
Our caring, patient attorneys do everything in our power to overwhelmingly prove our cases.
Our caring, patient attorneys do everything in our power to overwhelmingly prove our cases.

Duty of Care

Our attorneys must demonstrate that the defendant we are suing had a legal duty to act in a safe manner towards you. As an example, in a medical malpractice claim we would detail the doctor-patient relationship of an M.D. we were filing suit against.

Breach of Duty

The second step is showing that the duty of care was breached. To use a car accident claim as an example, this would involve the use of accident reconstruction experts and possibly street camera footage to demonstrate that a defendant in a car wreck was speeding.

Causation

The third step is proving causation, which in plain terms means showing a concrete connection between the breach of duty and harm suffered by the defendant. In a slip and fall case, this would involve showing a defendant's fall wouldn't have occurred without unsafe conditions.

Damages

The fourth and final step of any personal injury lawsuit is illustrating and quantifying damages the defendant suffered as a result of the plaintiff's negligence. Even if the first three steps are completed, a case cannot result in major compensation without tangible damages.

What Types of Damages Can You Receive?

Damages is the legal term for compensation in a civil lawsuit. Many states place maximum limits on the amount of economic damages a plaintiff can receive. Maryland does not, allowing for very significant compensation for quantifiable economic losses in both personal injury and wrongful death claims. Our state also allows for the recovery of noneconomic damages of close to $1 million in personal injury claims and even more in wrongful death lawsuits.

When injured Frederick clients come to our lawyers, we seek compensation for:

  • Diminished future earnings
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of life
  • Lost earnings of the deceased
  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills
  • Physical pain and emotional distress
  • Property damage

Maryland Law Makes It Especially Important To Hire Highly Knowledgeable Lawyers

Maryland and Virginia are among just four states that utilize the pure contributory negligence legal framework when awarding damages in personal injury claims. Pure contributory negligence can be extremely harsh on plaintiffs, as it blocks any compensation for a victim if they are found to be even 1% responsible for their harm. 

The restrictive nature of this law, especially compared to the more permissive statutes in most other states, dissuades some victims from ever filing their claims. Do not be discouraged. Understand that our personal injury attorneys have spent decades winning cases in which fault was in dispute.

Contact Our Attorneys For No-Cost Representation

The physical and financial toll of a motorcycle accident, truck accident, or slip and fall can be enormous. Our attorneys understand how punishing these incidents can be. To help our personal injury clients recover without taking on burdensome attorney's fees, Greenblatt & Veliev, LLC charges absolutely nothing upfront for these cases.

We start every personal injury case with a 100% complimentary consultation. If we do move forward with your lawsuit, we will do so on a contingency basis, meaning we take on all the costs of pursuing your case and only get paid if we win. This means our goal will always be helping achieve the most compensation possible in your case.

Our Law Firm's Victories Prove Our Abilities

The personal injury attorneys at Grenblatt & Veliev are proud to help clients in Frederick, Hagerstown, and the rest of the DMV. Described below are a small sampling of our six-figure personal injury wins:

$125,000 Dog Bite Attack

Dog ownership spiked significantly during the pandemic, but many new dog owners failed to take the proper steps in training their pets, leading to debilitating dog attacks on innocent bystanders. If you have suffered from one such attack, you can take solace in the fact that our lawyers have a track record of winning dog bite cases.

For example, we obtained a $125,000 settlement for a client who was chased down and attacked by a Rottweiler in Prince George’s County. At the outset of this case, the dog owner's insurer denied all liability. After our lawyers pushed back, the company offered a lowball settlement of just $5,500. We then began litigation and discovered via subpoenas and witness testimony that Animal Control had received several complaints regarding the Rottweiler, proving that the owner was aware of his dog's dangerous behavior.

$246,948 Car Accident

Our client was rear-ended, causing them to suffer significant hip damage. They had to have a bilateral hip replacement, which along with their other health care expenses, left them with over $100,000 in medical bills. We obtained the full limits of the defendant's auto insurance policy, but since this policy was only for $50,000 we continued to seek the compensation our client required.

Our client had an Underinsured Motorist Policy through their own insurer, however, their insurance company refused to pay the money they owed. After our lawyers got involved, the insurance company still declined to even offer a settlement. We took the car accident case to court, emerging from the jury trial with a $246,948 verdict. 

Start Your Case Now

Starting your case as soon as possible gives our personal injury lawyers the ability to begin collecting evidence while it is still fresh. It also helps ensure that we will not encounter any issues meeting your deadline to file. Call (301) 251-8776 or write to us now to receive our help.

We Handle Slip and Fall Cases

Frederick is full of properties that, when not properly maintained, can result in dangerous slip and fall accidents. These include retail stores like supermarkets and landlord-run properties like apartments. Our personal injury lawyers are deeply well-versed in slip and fall laws, allowing us to effectively take on this case type. 

Slip and falls are often caused by inadequate property maintenance that results in damaged or wet floors. Other causes are not as obvious, like insufficient lighting or non-regulation stairway railing. Our personal injury lawyers are adept at identifying culpability in these cases. 

One common defense used by opposing personal injury attorneys in slip and falls is arguing that the plaintiff was a trespasser or a bare licensee (someone who entered a property legally but not as an invitee). In Maryland, trespassers and bare licensees are not owed much, if any, of a duty of care. When applicable, our attorneys know how to prove that injured clients were actually invitees and are owed compensation from liable property owners.

DWI Personal Injury Cases Are Worth Pursuing

Being injured by a drunk driver can be devastating. Oftentimes in these situations, filing a personal injury case doesn't come to mind for victims since they were harmed by criminal behavior. While you may be focused on making sure the reckless drunk driver is put behind bars, you should not forget that you can also pursue a civil personal injury case at the same time that criminal proceedings are underway.

These types of claims operate similarly to any car accident case, with the added potential of punitive damages. Punitive damages are a rarely awarded type of compensation that are made available in cases where the defendant behaved in an especially egregious and dangerous manner, like driving under the influence.

These are awarded to punish a reckless individual and set an example for other wrongdoers of how not to behave. Maryland does not cap punitive damages, allowing our personal injury attorneys to seek significant compensation for clients who have been harmed by particularly perilous behavior.

How to Protect Yourself

Our Frederick personal injury lawyers will handle every aspect of your case. That being said, there are multiple actions you can take to protect your claim and maximize your potential compensation, such as:

Get Medical Attention

Your health is the most important thing. Time and again, our personal injury attorneys have seen car accidents and slip and falls result in slow-to-develop injuries that worsen over time. By seeing a doctor as soon as possible, you increase the likelihood that they diagnose and treat any issues before they spiral. You also generate critical medical records we can use to bolster you claim. Failing to see a doctor can be portrayed by the defense as evidence that you are exaggerating your suffering.

Never Admit Fault

Talking about your accident can be counterproductive. While it may feel natural to offer a token apology, anything you say can be used against you. It is especially important to remain silent in the face of insurance company pressure. The defendant's representatives often reach out to victims seeking statements they can twist out of context to deny or minimize claims. If you are contacted, refuse pressure to settle and direct all communication to our personal injury lawyers.

Save All Evidence

Our personal injury lawyers have dedicated their careers to fighting and winning car accident, medical malpractice, and slip and fall cases. We know how to identify evidence that may not be obvious to the untrained eye. If you have any photos, videos, or documents that are even somewhat related to your case, you should save them and bring them to us. To make sure you always have access to all your evidence, it is wise to email copies to yourself so that the evidence is available at any time from any device.
