Baltimore Personal Injury Lawyer
Since 1954, our Baltimore personal injury lawyers have been practicing tort law in Maryland. While our primary office has been in Washington, D.C., we recently opened an office in Maryland to provide exclusive attention to our Maryland clients, who we have been serving since our founding. We are happy to serve Baltimore as it has one of the best court systems in the state of Maryland.
We are honored to be able to provide excellent legal representation and help injured people in Baltimore recover the compensation to regain financial stability following a personal injury due to another party’s negligence. Choosing legal representation is not always easy, especially if this is your first time in an accident or you have no one assisting you and by your side. At Gelb & Gelb, we understand the challenges associated with these injuries. We have handled thousands of cases in Maryland, and we look forward to hearing from you.
Why Choose Us?
Experience matters. This is one key factor that differentiates us from other personal injury lawyers in Baltimore. Given that we have been practicing law in Maryland for nearly 70 years, we have seen nearly every possible defense the insurance companies or tortfeasors can come up with. We know the precise Maryland procedural requirements as well as the tort laws that are unique to Maryland. Our attorneys have faced off in the court room, mediation, arbitration, and more, and we aggressively fight to ensure maximum compensation for our clients.
Beyond our legal capacity, we understand that you need someone who is on your team. This means compassionate support in addition to aggressive litigation. When you suffer a personal injury, you may be incapacitated, unable to work and pay your bills. We understand this, and we ensure you are both comfortable and well informed of your case status every step of the way.
Our Baltimore personal injury lawyers handle a wide array of cases. In theory, we will handle any case where you suffer personal injury due to someone else’s negligent or intentional action. This includes reckless conduct. However, if you have suffered damage to property such as and are not personally injured, in general, we do not handle that type of case. We handle cases on a contingent fee basis, and cases exclusively for property damage are based on an hourly fee arrangement. Listed below is a number of common cases we handle:
While we answer many common questions on our blog, something specific to Maryland is the theory of contributory negligence. While it does exist in Washington, D.C., Maryland is only one of 5 states that follow this theory of negligence. In most jurisdictions in the United States, a plaintiff can make a recovery despite having been negligent to some degree himself. However, in Baltimore and all of Maryland, you likely cannot recover if you are even 1% negligent. This is a question of fact and will need to be considered by the judge or jury, depending on who the fact finder in your case is. However, it is generally clear, and an experienced personal injury lawyer can assist you in making that conclusion. To be clear, there are exceptions to this rule that require an experienced attorney to argue on a plaintiff’s behalf.
