About Our Firm

A Reputation for Excellence in Maryland Personal Injury Law

Alpert Schreyer Poe, LLC is a top-rated law firm with offices in Waldorf, Bowie, Prince Frederick, Lexington Park, and Frederick, Maryland. For over 30 years, our experienced personal injury lawyers have been helping victims and families in Maryland and the District of Columbia receive compensation for injuries suffered as a result of car and truck accidents, personal injuries, defective products, construction accidents, medical malpractice, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, prescription errors, wrongful death, work injuries, and more.

We offer free case evaluations, during which an attorney will carefully listen to the facts of your case and determine whether you have a legal claim. In addition, we take all of our personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that you will not owe us anything for our legal representation unless we obtain a settlement or award on your behalf. Best of all, our attorneys' fees will come directly out of the compensation you obtain, which means you’ll never have to pay for legal representation out of your own pocket.

Why You Need a Skilled Personal Injury Attorney

Many accident victims are surprised to learn that most personal injury cases never make it to court. In most instances, liability is so clear that litigating the case would be a waste of resources, leaving the only issue in dispute the issue of damages. When this occurs, the insurance company typically tries to settle the case out of court, which means paying the victim a certain amount of money in return for the victim releasing the at-fault party from any further liability.

If the insurance company has made a settlement offer or has assured you that one is forthcoming, it may be tempting for you to consider proceeding without an attorney. It is common knowledge that lawyers can charge high hourly fees, and you may feel like you could save money by handling the case yourself. As an accident victim, keep in mind that the insurance company that you are dealing with is actively trying to do everything it can to pay you as little as possible.

Some of the tactics they use to minimize their payouts include the following:

  • Telling victims that they need to provide a recorded statement about their accident in order to process their claim. In reality, victims are not required to give a statement, and the insurance company is simply looking for ways to argue that the victim was somehow at fault for his or her accident.
  • Taking an unreasonable amount of time to make a make an offer. They do this fully aware of the fact that victims’ medical bills are piling up and are likely missing out on lost income because they are unable to work. With these kinds of financial pressures, victims are typically much more likely to accept a settlement offer lower than their case is actually worth.
  • Requesting overbroad medical authorizations in an effort to find anything in victims’ medical histories that would justify classifying an injury as a pre-existing condition. For example, if you are claiming back pain after a serious car accident, the insurance company will look for anything in your medical history that has to do with a back injury that could justify reducing your settlement offer.

Fortunately, you don’t have to face the insurance company on your own. When you retain an attorney at Alpert Schreyer Poe, he or she will handle all communications with the insurance company on your behalf, ensuring that you do not say or do anything that will hurt your claim. In addition, if the insurance company refuses to make a reasonable settlement offer, your lawyer may file a lawsuit and take your case to court to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.

At Alpert Schreyer Poe, we are aggressive negotiators and well-versed in insurance company tactics. We know how to get insurance companies to pay out and will not hesitate to take a case to trial if it becomes necessary. With over 30 years of experience representing the rights of victims, we have the skill and acumen required to bring your case to the best resolution possible, whether that means negotiating a settlement offer with the insurance company or taking your case to trial.

How Much Is Your Case Worth?

Many victims are justifiably curious about how much they will recover for their injuries and other losses. Many factors will influence the amount of your settlement or award, including:

  • Your age and your occupation
  • Whether you were partially at fault for your accident
  • The at-fault party’s insurance policy or ability to pay
  • The relative strength of your case
  • The severity and extent of your injuries

Any settlement you accept needs to not only compensate you for your current losses, but also the losses you expect to experience in the future. Once you have accepted a settlement, it is nearly impossible to obtain additional compensation for your accident. For this reason, retain an experienced attorney who knows how to calculate future losses and present evidence of them to the insurance company—and if necessary, a jury.

At Alpert Schreyer Poe, we are committed to helping our clients get all of the compensation they deserve. When appropriate, we work with medical and financial experts that can develop empirically-based evidence of future losses and use that evidence to ensure that our all of our clients’ losses are covered—including those that have yet to be realized.
