From a minor car accident to a major collision, an experienced and knowledgeable attorney can take the necessary action required to help you recover the financial compensation you deserve after an accident. Your car accident damages may include property loss and possible loss of value in your vehicle, loss of earnings due to inability to work, medical bills, as well as the costs associated with long-term injuries or disabilities. Trying to navigate these issues on your own can be extremely difficult and time-consuming. Most people lack the experience needed in order to effectively deal with often difficult insurance companies. You need an experienced car accident attorney on your side, acting on your behalf to help you explore all relevant options and remedies.
The most common types of car accidents in Maryland include rear-end collisions and head-on collisions often caused by speeding, human error, or distracted driving. Other common car accident causes are related to drunk driving, texting, and road rage. No matter the cause, the result of even a minor car accident can create emotional stress and financial pressures. By enlisting the services of an experienced Baltimore County car accident attorney, you can help streamline and optimize your claim to recovery related to your car’s damage, rental car costs and injuries as a result of the accident.
If you have been in a car accident, be sure to gather all relevant details and documents such as your police report, medical bills and reports, photos, and insurance information from all parties. You should also make sure to get the name, address, and phone number of any witnesses at the scene.
Emotions run high after an accident, and it’s important to remain calm and deal with one thing at a time. Here are the steps you should take at the scene of the car accident. Pull over to a safe spot as close to the accident location as possible. Failing to stop is a criminal offense. Make sure to deal with any medical issues first; call an ambulance if needed. Once you and the other driver are safe and out of the flow of traffic, make sure to exchange all necessary information required by law. Failing to do so may also result in criminal charges. Calling the police is often the best option to make a record of the car accident. If there is any doubt, notify law enforcement.
