Maryland Accident Attorneys
for Personal Injury Claims
Have you been injured through no fault of your own? The purpose of Maryland’s personal injury laws is to provide the legal means for you to seek compensation from the person who caused your injuries. While money does not undo the consequences of a negligent act, compensation can help accident victims recover financial losses. In addition, since the judicial system cannot undo the physical injuries, all it can do is provide a monetary award to try to compensate an accident victim for pain, suffering, and permanent impairments.The Pinder Plotkin Legal Team handles a variety of personal injury and accident claims.
Our Maryland accident attorneys handle claims related to:
- Auto Accidents
- Defective Products
- Dog Bites
- Medical Malpractice
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Wrongful Death

Who Is Responsible for Paying the Compensation in an Accident Claim?
In most cases, the at-fault party’s insurance company pays the compensation to the accident victim. However, you must prove that person or party was responsible for causing the accident that resulted in your injury before the insurance company pays the claim.
For instance, another driver failed to yield the right-of-way thereby causing a collision. Other examples include a manufacturer selling a defective product that results in an injury or a person falling at the grocery store because of unsafe conditions.
A Maryland personal injury lawyer investigates the circumstances of the accident to determine the cause, identify the responsible party, and gather evidence to prove liability. However, do not assume that an insurance company will automatically pay an accident claim even if its insured is clearly at fault.
Insurance companies often deny and undervalue valid claims. You may need to fight for a fair and just settlement for your claim. In some cases, you may need to pursue a personal injury lawsuit if the insurance company refuses to negotiate a settlement in good faith.
Our Maryland personal injury lawyers stand up to insurance companies to protect your legal rights. We work diligently to help you receive the compensation you deserve for your accident claim.
What is My Accident Claim Worth?
The value of a personal injury claim depends on several factors. The type and severity of your injury, the availability of insurance, and liability for the accident are factors that impact the value of your accident claim. Your actual financial losses also impact the value of your accident claim.
In most cases, accident victims can recover compensation for damages including:
- Medical bills
- Loss of income
- Property damage
- Emotional suffering
- Physical pain
- Mental anguish
- Disabilities and impairments
- Future financial losses
It is usually in your best interest to discuss your claim with a Maryland personal injury lawyer before you accept a settlement. Once you accept the settlement and sign a release, you cannot recover additional money for your claim.
