Personal Injury

Compensation for Maryland accident injuries

You need aggressive representation when you have been injured due to someone else's negligence. I evaluate your case and give you a realistic assessment of the compensation you may be able to receive.

Automobile accidents

Serious car crashes occur almost daily on I-95, the B-W Parkway and the Baltimore and Capital Beltways. If the other driver was entirely at fault for your accident, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Vocational retraining
  • Pain and suffering

I know how to negotiate with the auto insurance companies to get you a fair settlement when you have been hurt in a Maryland car accident.

Slip and fall

You may be able to recover damages when you are injured on someone else's property due to a dangerous condition. However, Maryland's laws covering slip and fall accidents are very strict. The property owner must have known about the danger or had reason to know about it, but failed to correct the condition or warn you about it. Also, you must be completely without fault for your accident. I have the required skill to show a jury that a property owner was negligent and you were not at fault for your injuries, allowing you to receive appropriate compensation.

Products liability

When a consumer product was dangerous at the time it left the manufacturer's control, you may be able to receive compensation for the injuries you received. Common products which cause serious injuries include:

  • Prescription drugs
  • Off-road vehicles
  • Car tires
  • Foods
  • Cribs
  • Toys

If a defective product has caused you injury, I help you recover damages from the manufacturer.

Wrongful death

In Maryland, there are two types of lawsuits that you may bring when you have lost a loved one due to someone's negligence — a survival action and a wrongful death action.

Survival actions

The personal representative of a deceased person may bring a survival action seeking damages for the injuries that the victim suffered before death. This allows a personal injury suit to survive the person's death and for the estate to be compensated. All actual and non-economic damages the person might have received while alive are available to the estate in a survival action.

Wrongful death actions

The relatives of a deceased person may seek direct compensation by filing a wrongful death suit. If the death was caused by negligence, relatives may be able to receive damages for the loss of:
