Bowie Personal Injury Lawyer
Our Bowie personal injury lawyers have been practicing law in the greater Maryland area for nearly 70 years. The public generally imagines a car wreck when speaking in reference to a personal injury accident. But we handle all accidents claims ranging from a slip and fall, truck accident, wrongful death, and more. In general, we will take a case if you have been injured due to another party’s negligence. Further, we have locations in Washington, DC, and Upper Marlboro, so we are always happy to meet with you in person. If you are not available for an in-person meeting, we handle many of our accidents exclusively over the phone and email.
A personal injury case in Bowie is subject to Maryland tort law and civil procedure. This affects a number of factors that have an impact on the outcome of your case as well as your total compensation. For example, in general, the statute of limitations in Maryland to file a civil lawsuit is three years. However, under Rule 2-101 of the Maryland Rules, you have 30 days after being dismissed for lack of jurisdiction to refile your suit in the proper venue. This is a very tight window of time to refile. So, it is important to hire a Bowie personal injury lawyer who understands Maryland law and has handled these situations thousands of times before.
When you are hurt due to someone’s negligence, your life is likely in disorder. Whether you are hurt in a motorcycle accident, pedestrian accident, or have a family member who perishes, your life may be permanently changed. You may now have a treatment schedule that interferes with your everyday life and your car may now be inoperable. When you are in this unfortunate situation you need someone who understands what you are going through and who cares. Not just our dedicated personal injury lawyers, but our compassionate staff are there for you every step of the way.
This is one aspect that separates our legal representation from anyone else’s. We have been practicing in Bowie since 1954. So, we understand that details matter and understand how to maximize your compensation so that you get a fair and equitable recovery. But we also understand that this is not enough to qualify as excellent legal representation. You need someone who is willing to fight for you and who makes you their top priority. To us, you are not just another case. We go the extra mile to ensure you are comfortable and well-informed throughout this strenuous time.
Our Bowie personal injury lawyers have fought in the court rooms and dealt with the insurance companies for decades. This valuable experience has taught us what a case is worth and how to get what clients deserve under these rights. Often times, insurance companies try to settle a case quickly and for less than it is worth. And if you do not know better, you may take that settlement offer and seriously undercut your recovery. We do not settle for less than your case is worth. We fight to ensure you get every dime you deserve under Maryland law. These cases can be difficult to handle by yourself. Generally, when an insurance company sees an unrepresented plaintiff, they propose lowball offers and will not negotiate until you file suit.
