Greenbelt Car Accident Lawyers
One of the most dangerous places to be in Maryland is on the road, especially if you are a bicyclist or a pedestrian. Millions of adult drivers and passengers are injured in motor vehicle crashes in the U.S. each year and most, if not all, of these accidents were caused by the negligent actions of others; and because the actions of others are not within your control, these accidents cannot be predicted or avoided. This does not mean that an injury victim cannot obtain justice, however.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident that was caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another, the dedicated Greenbelt car accident attorneys at Alpert Schreyer, LLC can help you file a personal injury claim against the at-fault party. While legal action is not usually the first thing on an accident victim's mind, it may be the only way to make a full recovery.
After an Auto Accident
Seeking medical attention is the most important step after an injury car crash, but it is not immediate emergency medical care that usually creates hardship for accident victims and their families. After a car accident, an injured victim may require ongoing medical treatment and care, all the while not being able to work and earn wages. How is an injury victim supposed to recover from their injuries if they are worrying about whether they can afford to support their family?
Oftentimes, injured victims forgo the medical care or other support services they need due to financial insecurity. This not only places them in a stressful situation but also jeopardizes the quality of life and well being of their entire family. The issue of financial hardship after a car crash is a common one, but it is not a hopeless one.
By filing an injury claim, an injury victim can recover financial compensation for medical bills, lost income and other damages that could jeopardize their future quality of life. But to ensure that they obtain fair compensation, it is advisable to retain the services of an experienced attorney.
A Successful Injury Claim
To have a successful Maryland personal injury claim against the party at-fault for your auto accident, you will need to prove that the injuries you've suffered are a result of the accident, that the accident was caused by the negligence or recklessness of another, and that you could not avoid the accident by exercising ordinary care. Preserving all medical visits, notes, and records, as well as keeping your own observations of your condition as time passes will help cement your case, as well as the accident report.
