Is It Worth Getting a Lawyer for an Auto Accident?

There are over 100,000 car accidents in Maryland yearly, and more than 55,000 people are injured every year in Maryland auto accidents. As eye-opening as that statistic may be, most people are not prepared for an auto accident when the time comes.

Is it worth getting a lawyer? Can I win a case on my own?

Don’t worry. We are here to help! We have outlined everything you need to know when deciding if a lawyer is worth it for an auto accident. So, without further ado, let’s dive in!

The Short Answer Is: Yes Absolutely!

Absolutely, you should consider consulting a personal injury lawyer after an auto accident, especially if you or a loved one has suffered minor, extensive or permanent life-threatening injuries. A lawyer can help to protect you from any present as well as future damages related to the accident. Especially in cases where severe injuries are involved, it is imperative that victims contact a skilled Maryland personal injury lawyer before ever agreeing to any insurance settlement. Working without an attorney could put your case at risk.

How Is Car Accident Fault Determined?

Fault is determined by the evidence collected during the investigation. We look to many things to determine fault in the case: we look to the police report, we look to witness statements, we look to the property damage to the vehicles, skid marks, layout of the cars, etc. Having a Lawyer handle the investigation in your accident case takes the stress off of you at such a difficult time.

These injuries and their circumstances can cause life to become extremely stressful and throw it into complete chaos. Auto accident cases are among the most devastating personal injury cases that come into our office, whether they involve cars, large trucks, Uber or Lyft rideshare vehicles or any other type of motor vehicle. They can be devastating whether you are a driver, a passenger, a pedestrian or a bicyclist.
