Car Accidents in Prince George’s County
Inclement weather, mechanical problems, and human error are just a few factors that can increase the risk of car accidents. Even with the latest advances in safety technology, car accidents are still an unfortunate reality that can cause significant property damage and potentially life-threatening injuries. Knowing the right steps to take immediately following an accident can make the ordeal less stressful and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve. The Prince George’s County car accident lawyers at LeViness, Tolzman & Hamilton can help guide you through the claims process and make sure that your rights are protected.
Protecting Your Rights Is Our Top Priority
While most insurance companies want to protect their financial interests by persuading you to settle your claim quickly and for less than you deserve, we will aggressively fight to secure the maximum financial compensation you deserve, both from your insurance company and the defendants. Oftentimes, insurance companies will urge you to make statements or sign documents that can negatively affect your claim. Therefore, it is imperative that you speak to an experienced car accident lawyer before making any official statements, either verbal or written. Once an agreement has been signed, you may not be able to pursue additional damages later.
With a proven track record of settling claims for maximum damages, we take every step necessary to protect you from settling for less than you deserve. Our seasoned legal team understands how important it is that you receive the compensation you deserve in a timely fashion, and we will take every step to push your claim through the system as quickly as possible. However, when there are serious injuries that require extensive medical care, or that result in permanent disabilities that require long-term care, reaching the maximum settlement can take time. Our experienced team will negotiate with the auto insurance company on your behalf.
Determining Liability in a Car Accident
In the state of Maryland, a car accident victim may be unable to collect damages if the person who allegedly caused the accident presents a contributory negligence defense, which suggests that the plaintiff is partially to blame for the wreck. If the plaintiff is successful in using this line of defense, the law states the plaintiff can be denied recovery if they are merely one percent at fault. With a thorough knowledge of state laws, we will take proactive steps to protect your rights and determine the best legal course of action.
In some cases, even if you believe you were responsible for causing the accident, you may not be legally liable. If this is the case, we will thoroughly investigate the details of the accident and challenge any claims made against you. We handle all types of car accident cases, including the following:
- Auto defects
- Aggressive driving
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Drowsy driving
- Hit-and-run accidents
- Rear-end collisions
- Texting while driving
