Personal Injury Claims

“Personal Injury” is a generic term that encompasses many different types of cases, and may be used any time a person suffers a physical injury because of negligence, or other wrongful acts, of another. Medical malpractice, birth injury, product liability, automotive, and premises liability cases, are examples of what are personal injury cases.

Those who are victimized by the negligence, or other wrongful acts, of another can recover monetary compensation for damages that result from their personal injuries. Such damages may include economic harm such as loss of income and past and/or future medical expenses, as well as non-economic harm such as physical pain and suffering and emotional distress and mental anguish.

Car and Truck Accidents

In most areas of Maryland, and in Washington, D.C., traffic has steadily increased for many years. Streets, roads and highways are often crowded with automobiles and/or commercial trucks. Automobile and truck accidents occur every day.

Some accidents are minor, but others cause serious injuries or death. Many accidents are caused by the negligence, or fault, of another driver, and some are caused by the negligence, or fault, of more than one other driver. In a multi-vehicle accident, for example, more than one driver may be at fault. In a two-vehicle accident, each driver may be negligent, and an injured passenger would have claims against both. Defective automobile or truck parts, or defects in automobile or truck design, also cause, either entirely or in part, some accidents. Likewise, defective automobile or truck parts, or defects in automobile or truck design, may also cause or contribute to the severity of injuries suffered in accidents.

If a commercial truck is involved in an accident, issues relating to the company’s hiring, training or supervision of its drivers may come into play. Federal safety and maintenance regulations are also important in truck accident cases.

Important insurance issues can also arise in automobile and truck accident cases. For example, automobile liability insurance, personal injury protection, collision coverage, med-pay, underinsured and uninsured motorist insurance, and “umbrella” insurance may be involved in automobile cases. Commercial insurance is involved in truck accident cases.
