The Information You Need After A Car Accident
When a car accident leaves you with more questions than answers, it is important to get the information you need as soon as possible. Our lawyers at the Baltimore office of the Law Offices of Eugene I. Glazer have been providing these answers since 1960, and we are prepared to give you the guidance you need. In the decades we have been helping clients throughout Maryland, we have answered important questions such as:
What should I do immediately after a car accident?
Report the accident to the police and receive any medical attention you may need. If you can safely move about the scene of the accident, collect videos and pictures of the wreck, as well as witness testimony and the information of the driver and car that hit you. Lastly, do not give a recorded statement about the accident to an insurance company without talking to us first, and contact us as soon as possible.
What types of compensation may be available to car accident victims?
Full and fair compensation for your injuries should reflect the current and future economic and noneconomic costs of your accident. While every compensation package is unique, yours should account for factors such as lost income, medical bills, relocation or renovation costs, and pain and suffering.
What types of car accident cases do you handle?
We represent clients through all types of motor vehicle accidents, especially the ones with life-changing injuries, including trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, electric scooter accidents and public transportation accidents.
How long will my claim take to resolve?
There are two primary methods of resolving these accident claims: negotiation and litigation. Through negotiations, we try to secure a full and fair settlement out of court, and it often takes weeks or months to reach a resolution. If these negotiations do not produce an arrangement you can approve of, litigation in court will be necessary, often taking one to three years to resolve.
How long do I have to file a claim?
In Maryland, injured victims have three years from the date of the incident to file an injury claim. While this may seem like a long time, keep in mind that adding more time to the length of your claim pushes the compensation you need that much further away from you.
Instead of waiting to file your claim, contact us today by calling 410-415-9401 or emailing us here to schedule your free initial consultation today. If your loved one has passed on in these accidents, we can also pursue damages for wrongful death and survival actions in order to collect preimpact fright, pain & suffering, burial and funeral expenses, and other damages that account for missed financial contributions to your family.
