D.C. and Maryland Auto/Motorcycle Attorney
Auto accidents can be very frightening and the potential for serious injury increases if you are a passenger or if you are operating a motorcycle. Maryland and D.C. roadways are congested and the possibility of a driver being distracted by a cell phone, GPS or other electronic device is fairly high given the demographics of the area. Combine a distracted driver with a wet, icy road in the winter and you have a recipe for a serious accident leading to significant injuries. Drivers have an obligation to operate their vehicle safely including paying attention to the road, driving sober and operating at a safe speed. Thousands of accidents occur annually on the roadways of D.C. and Maryland because of careless drivers, road conditions and drunk driving. While many of these drivers will receive citations, this does nothing to help victims who have suffered injuries.
Drivers who are at fault for an accident can be held accountable for your:
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitation costs
- Lost time from work
- Loss of future Income
- Pain and Suffering
- Mental Distress
- Permanent Disability
- Property damage
- Most auto accident cases actually settle out of court. To prevent costly, tedious, and time-consuming litigation, both parties usually come to a mutual agreement.
- The best way to guarantee that you acquire the most adequate settlement of your claim is to present to the insurance company a case too irrefutable to deny.
It is not in your best interest to attempt to represent yourself in this legal matter. Understand that the insurance company has a team of lawyers behind them and you may not have the certification, experience, nor the understanding of the legal processes required to achieve a satisfactory settlement of your case.
