Suffering Injuries Because Of A Negligent Driver

Even if you consider yourself to be a safe driver, the unpredictability of motor vehicle accidents means you may suffer an injury at some point because of someone else's negligence. From minor fender benders to serious highway collisions, many car accidents leave victims emotionally and physically injured, sometimes even to the point where they are unable to return to work or the activities they love.

If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident that was the direct result of someone else's negligence, then the attorneys at Marts & Kettell, LLC, can help you receive compensation to cover damages to your vehicle, as well as medical bills and lost wages. Our firm handles a variety of accident cases, including:

  • Car crashes
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle collisions
  • Accidents involving pedestrians
  • Hit-and-run accidents
  • Crashes caused by distracted driving
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Collisions resulting in death
  • Crashes involving uninsured or underinsured motorists

How Comparative Negligence Affects Compensation

In order to get out of paying you the compensation you are owed, a negligent driver may make a claim that you were at-fault in the crash as well. Maryland's contributory negligence law states that if you are at least a little at fault for a crash or collision, you may not recover damages. Protect your rights and your reputation by obtaining the services of an experienced and tenacious personal injury attorney who can stand as your advocate when a comparative negligence claim is made.

Fighting Back Against Aggressive Insurance Companies

When trying to recover damages after an accident, you may experience pushback from the insurance company. Most insurance companies only care about their profits and the bottom line, not the financial strain your injuries will put on you. Only an equally aggressive lawyer can help you fight back against these tactics, and get you the fair compensation you need and deserve.
