I-95 Accident Lawyer
Interstate 95 (I-95) is known by anyone who has grown up anywhere on the east coast of the United States. Whether you are from Florida or the Houlton-Woodstock Border Crossing in Maine, you are near an entry point to I-95. Minus a small subsection in Georgia and, of course, Washington, D.C., I-95 tends to parallel the Atlantic coast and U.S. 1. In our region, it goes by Washington, D.C. as well as Baltimore, Maryland. This is where our I-95 accident lawyers take most of our cases. In Baltimore, I-95 uses the Fort McHenry Tunnel under Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and travels along the John F. Kennedy Memorial Highway. It is 1,924 miles long, making it the sixth-longest interstate highway in the nation. It also passes through more states than any other interstate highway in the country at 15 states plus the District.
When you hire an I-95 accident lawyer, you may not be from the region. That is okay. You are still able to file suit in Maryland if that is where the accident occurs. In addition, you are able to sue a defendant where he or she resides. There are procedural rules that dictate where a person resides, but it is generally in the state where the license plate is from. Of course, without an attorney’s due diligence, you cannot rely on a license plate by itself as the driver may be borrowing the car from a third party.

Types of Collisions
Ultimately, what matters is who causes the accident. Although, some types of accidents are more indicative of liability than others. For example, a rear-end accident makes it more obvious that the driver behind the victim is liable for the accident. On the other hand, in a lane-change accident, it may require more corroboration from a witness.
Of course, our I-95 accident lawyers may be able to reconstruct an accident based on how the paint is on each vehicle. This is why it is imperative to collect information after an accident. Taking pictures of the surrounding area as well as pictures of each vehicle involved in the accident can be beneficial. Should we file suit in your case, it will be sufficient evidence to prove liability by a preponderance of the evidence. Also, a good tip is to use a dash camera. While it may work against you in the event that you are at fault, it can be hugely beneficial in the even that you are not at fault but in a car accident on I-95. But if you are at fault, we must advise you to not delete the evidence as you are likely violating the law.
Given the high speeds and various types of motor vehicles on I-95, the list of types of collisions is theoretically endless. However, below is a list of the most common types of collisions we encounter.
