The path to receiving fair compensation for any type of accident is potentially riddled with pitfalls, which must be navigated with skill and caution.

Types of Accidents that May Result in a Successful Injury Claim
Car accidents, motorcycle crashes, slip-and-fall accidents, and defective product incidents in Lexington Park or the surrounding areas of Maryland may all potentially result in a personal injury claim. For a personal injury claim to be successful, the injured victim will have to prove that the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence. For example, if you are involved in a car crash when you were speeding, you may not be able to pursue compensation for your losses through civil litigation. If, however, a speeding driver caused a crash that resulted in your injuries, you may be able to hold the negligent driver accountable for his or her actions. The presence of negligence or wrongdoing is a critical component of a personal injury claim.
The Importance of Corroboration
Many allegations of negligence are disputed and the arguments turn into a war of words. In such cases, it is important to prove your case with as much evidence as possible. Did someone witness the accident? If so, get all of their contact information. If there are no witnesses to the crash or the incident in question, you may need to bring in an expert witness to corroborate your account. A knowledgeable attorney will have the access to renowned and reputed experts who will help strengthen your case.
Who Is Liable?
Who you are able to hold accountable for the damages suffered can alter the amount of money available and how your claim should be handled:
- Slip-and-fall accident: Property owner who failed to provide safe premises
- Car accident: At-fault driver who caused the crash
- Defective product: The designer, manufacturer, seller of products that cause harm
- Criminal acts: The person responsible for the crime or in some cases, the property owner
- Medical malpractice: The doctor or facility responsible for the injuries suffered
- Industrial accident: The company or property owner responsible for the unsafe conditions
All of these liable parties may dispute the allegations and defend themselves with an attorney.
