      What to Do After a Car Accident That Wasn’t Your Fault

      After being involved in a car accident, there are a few actions you can take to ensure your safety and avoid compromising your insurance and/or legal claim. Make sure to refrain from admitting fault and do not attempt to talk to the at-fault driver’s insurance agent without consulting a lawyer first. While it may seem easy to handle an insurance claim on your own, it is very unlikely that the insurance company will offer you a fair payout. Therefore, make sure to speak to an attorney as soon as possible after an accident.

      It is also advisable to visit a medical professional to attend to your injuries. Even if you believe that they will heal on their own with time, they could worsen instead. In addition, the at-fault party may attempt to use your lack of professional medical treatment as “evidence” to dispute your claim.

      While some time is likely to have passed since the date of your accident, it is never too late to seek the help of a doctor and reach out to an attorney. As the saying goes, “The best time to plant a tree was yesterday. The second-best time is now.”

      How to File a Car Accident Claim in Frederick

      Does My Injury Qualify for a Suit?

      The first step to filing an accident claim is to determine whether your injury will be deemed eligible for a claim by a court of law. A few injuries that provide grounds for a legal case include:

      Proving Negligence in Car Accident Cases

      Since car accident claims fall under the “personal injury” umbrella, you will need to prove that the accident was preventable and caused by the other party’s negligence. To establish this and win your claim, you and your attorney will need to prove the following:

      • A duty of care was owed to you by the at-fault party;
      • The party breached this duty by acting negligently, either intentionally or unintentionally; and
      • This breach resulted in the car accident in which you were injured.

      Please note: Claimants must prove all three of these criteria, otherwise the claim will not be considered valid per state law.

      Negligence committed by another driver on the road includes speeding, distracted driving, driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, ignoring traffic laws, and the like.

      Can I Sue if I Am Partially Responsible?

      Many states allow for comparative negligence when handling car accident cases, which grants accident victims the right to pursue damages even if they were partially responsible for the collision. However, Maryland is one of the few states left that observes pure contributory negligence, meaning that claims will be denied if the claimant could be considered as little as 1% at fault for the crash.

      Insurance agents are aware of pure contributory negligence law and will keep it in mind when approaching your claim. Often, it provides an incentive for these insurance agents to shrug off some of the fault and blame you instead. That is why it is important to speak to a lawyer to protect yourself from such tricks of the insurance trade.

      Car Accident Settlements & Verdicts

      If your claim is successful, the settlement and/or verdict amount will fully depend on your injury and the impact it has had on your life. The court will assign what it believes to be an accurate dollar amount to any damages incurred, thus it is not wise to compare your claim to someone else’s and expect a similar payout. A lawyer can help you maximize your compensation, however.

      At Alpert Schreyer, we have won millions of dollars for our clients in compensation, as we focus our practice on fighting for seriously injured Frederick residents. If you have sustained severe injuries in a car crash, our attorneys will fight to win you the maximum amount of compensation to which you are legally entitled.

      Why Hire an Accident Attorney?

      As mentioned, attorneys will work to protect your rights and prevent at-fault parties from taking advantage of you. Backed by over three decades of practice, Alpert Schreyer has a team of lawyers ready to help you with your case. We will assist you in substantiating your claim, filing it on time, and, if needed, fighting against the negligent party in court.

      The attorney’s and paralegals are incredible. They are truly committed to understanding your case and serving you. However, I’ve personally worked with Mr. Berman and Mrs. Bowman through my entire process! I am so grateful for their passion, dedication, and professionalism. I haven’t worked with many attorney’s in the past, but I’m glad you all were recommended to me. You all are truly the best. Thank you so much!
