Personal Injury Trial Lawyer Fighting for Accident Victims Throughout Maryland
The definition of a “personal injury” is simple: someone's negligence and carelessness harmed another person. Bodily injury can take many forms and arise from many causes. From car accident cases to premises liability cases and wrongful death claims, I've seen it all. When someone else is at fault for a person’s injuries, the law gives that victim the right to a financial recovery. I've spent my career recovering compensation for people who’ve been hurt — through no fault of their own — by the wrongful acts of others. When a difficult insurance company denies a reasonable payment request, I immediately and vigorously pursue monetary redress and satisfaction by filing a personal injury lawsuit and asking a jury to decide fair and just compensation. The essential goal of a personal injury claim is to recover the losses sustained by the Plaintiff- both economic and non-economic- caused by the defendant's actions.
Examples of Personal Injury Cases
- Car accident cases
- Wrongful death
- Product defects
- Workplace accidents
- Premises liability cases- such as slip and fall accidents

Hurt by Someone Else's Negligence?
You May Have A Personal Injury Case
Accidents happen every day. Sometimes accidents are caused by things outside of our control, like an act of God or a natural disaster. Often, however, so-called "accidents" are caused by an individual’s failure to exercise an appropriate level of caution and respect for others' safety. When someone fails to act sensibly and engages in conduct a reasonable person would not, they create a risk of harm to others. The law deems such behavior to be negligent, and a negligent actor is held accountable for the losses of anyone they harm. When you reach out to our law firm, we begin assembling your personal injury claim from the first moment. If you’ve sustained damage and loss in an accident, you’re not alone.

Compensation & Damages in Personal Injury Claims
Maryland law recognizes an accident victim’s right to recover monetary compensation — known as “damages”. Putting a dollar value on the specific ways in which an injury has changed someone's quality of life is a difficult analysis- but it is the most important thing a personal injury attorney does. Every case is distinctive, and the precise amount of compensation a personal injury victim can receive is based on the unique losses they have sustained. Any loss sustained may be recovered.
Common Elements of Financial Recovery in Person Injury Cases
- Repairing or replacing damaged property
- Medical bills and other medical expenses past, present, and future
- Lost wages, and loss of earning potential past, present, and future.
Non economic damages, including physical and mental pain, anguish distress and, inconvenience past, present, and future, as well as disfigurement, scarring, and embarrassment.
The initial step on the road to financial recovery typically is the presentation of a claim to the involved Maryland insurance company. Many who have not been through a similar experience before are surprised, even shocked, by the way their claim is handled. Insurance claims are frequently delayed for uncertain reasons. Many are denied outright, based on an insurance company’s position that there is “no coverage” or “no accident”. A common tactic is to minimize the nature and extent of the plaintiff’s injuries, or to blame any conceivable cause other that the accident- for the plaintiff’s injuries. When your personal injury claim is denied, or an unreasonably low settlement offer made, the only option is to file a personal injury lawsuit and ask a jury of Marylander’s to decide fair compensation.
If your life has been impacted by someone else's negligent actions, you are entitled to recover damages. Call our law firm for a free analysis to find out more. It's important to understand your rights and know your options moving forward.
