Negligent Driving – Maryland Personal Injury Lawyers

If you or a loved one has been the victim of someone else’s negligence behind the wheel, you may be eligible to be compensated for personal injury.

Negligence is the primary cause of traffic accidents. Driver negligence can happen because the driver is distracted, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, speeding or driving carelessly, or failing to obey the rules of the road. To show that negligence was present in an accident, it must be proven that injury to one’s vehicle or person was caused by a negligent driver, that that the negligent driver did not fulfill their duty to control their vehicle. Other conditions that may cause traffic accidents include traffic congestion, road construction, inclement weather conditions, and unexpected debris in the roadway.

Whether the other driver’s negligence was intentional or accidental does not matter. You may be subject to many issues due to the other driver’s negligence, including damage to your vehicle, temporary or permanent injury or disability, lost current or future wages, pain and suffering, diminished quality of life, and wrongful death.

WHAT TO DO?

A common mistake many drivers make after having been in an accident is to neglect to call an attorney. This can be a big mistake, and can potentially hurt your chances for financial restitution. Likewise, if you contact your insurance company before calling an attorney, you may unwittingly forgo some of your rights. Insurance companies hire attorneys to protect their financial interests and it is in your best interest to do the same before contacting your insurance company.

If you have suffered a serious injury, we may be able to help you collect compensation beyond that which is provided through insurance claims.

When driver negligence causes a traffic accident, it is grounds for a lawsuit, and you may be entitled to compensation. Your insurance company may not reveal this information, but the legal team at The Law Office of Miguel Palmeiro, LLC can help you find out about your rights and formulate a solid legal plan in your pursuit of financial restitution. Please contact our office to schedule your traffic accident consultation.
