Odds of Winning Car Accident Case
In a car accident case in Maryland, no outcome in court is ever a guarantee. If you decide to go to trial as a plaintiff, the odds of winning your car accident case are never certain. Of course, there are steps you can take as a victim of an accident to increase your likelihood of success. When you are injured due to someone else’s negligent or intentional conduct, you have a number of options. But no matter what you decide to do, you still have to deal with repairing your car and getting physically healthy.
When you are in an accident, your life can turn upside down. You may no longer be able to work. You can certainly lose the ability to travel to and from work due to your car being with the mechanic. Moreover, you may have crippling medical expenses because, unfortunately, medical care in our country can be quite expensive. Of course, a successful personal injury lawsuit can bring life back to normal relatively quickly. Of course, this hinges on whether you are successful. If you are unsuccessful, you will be where you are now. Also keep in mind, we do not charge a fee unless we win. So there is no cost to you for hiring an injury attorney. The odds of winning your car accident case are never 100%, but below are a few steps you can take to increase your chances of success.
Step One: Hire Excellent Counsel
Excellent legal counsel can increase the chances of everything running smoothly. As usual, there is no guarantee. In fact, if a Maryland car accident lawyer were to make a guarantee of results, it would be unethical and that attorney would risk sanctions with the Bar. What we can say is our lawyers have been practicing tort law in Maryland for nearly 70 years and are considered among the best in the state. With this experience, we can ensure the process of your claim, including filing it if necessary, will be handled with the upmost competency and efficacy.
What is the first step? Excellent legal counsel is able to argue your case in the most effective manner possible. The argument your attorney will make depends on whether you are making a claim for an Uber accident, rear-end accident, I-95 accident, beltway accident, teen accident, etc. While there is not necessarily one way to make a legal argument, an experienced attorney will communicate with the defendant or to a jury in a way that portrays you as a reasonably prudent driver or accident victim who was injured due to the carelessness of the defendant. The best attorney will maximize the odds of obtaining full and fair compensation for his client in an ethical and professional manner.
Step Two: Stay in Control
When you file suit in a federal or Maryland state court, the odds of winning your car accident case are unknown. No matter how well your attorney performs in the courtroom, there is no way to guarantee a successful outcome once both legal teams rest their cases. So, how can we maintain control of your case? Once you complete your medical treatment, we seek to settle your case. By coming to an agreement with the defendant, we stay in control of the outcome. This is the magic of the law. Once we sign a binding contract with a valid offer, acceptance of that offer, and valid legal consideration, we have taken control of a case that formerly was out of control.
At the point of execution of the settlement agreement, we have sufficient control of the defendant to obtain recovery for your injuries. Of course, this is a mutual agreement. From that point forward, they also have control over you to no longer pursue compensation for the injuries relating from that specific car accident. But that is ok. Our goal is not necessarily to relentlessly and aggressively pursue the defendant into submission. Rather, our goal is to increase the odds of winning your car accident case so you may obtain full and fair compensation for your injuries. Of course, settling a case is not always an option, just like the odds of winning a case are never 100% no matter the attorney.
