Auto Accidents

We call them automobile accidents or car accidents, but they aren’t.  They are crashes.  Cars, buses and trucks weren’t meant to hit each other.  When they do, it’s a crash, and someone is at fault.

Maryland Car Crash Lawyer

As Maryland car crash lawyers, there are four things we must prove in order to win a negligence action.  (Car crash cases are generally negligence cases.)

  1. The defendant – the one who caused the accident – had a duty to you, the injured person.
  2. The defendant breached their duty to you.
  3. The breach of duty was the proximate cause of the harm you suffered.
  4. You sustained actual damages.

This means, from the first phone call you make to our office, we need to work toward proving all four things above.  Getting in a car crash can range from a big pain in the ass on the smaller end, to a significant, life-changing event on the bigger end.  We can help with either situation.

What Do I Do Now?

  • Document everything – take pictures of vehicles, bodies, and any other detail you think might matter. If there are witnesses, get names and contact information.
  • Get proper medical care. A car crash is no time to be a tough guy or girl.  The more immediate and more thorough your medical care is, the better your case and healing process will be.
  • Get all of your insurance information together. All of it.  Every policy you have.
  • Speak to no one after the scene.
  • Call Us. 443-921-1100.  We will handle it from there.
