Maryland Personal Injury Attorney Seeks Justice for Accident Victims
Rockville law firm aids individuals with their personal injury claims
When you’re injured because of someone else’s negligence, you shouldn’t have to be responsible for the medical bills and other financial fallout caused by the other party’s careless actions. At The Law Office of Christopher J. Smith in Rockville, I use the knowledge I gained while defending insurance companies in personal injury claims to helping victims receive compensation. My firm represents residents throughout Maryland.
Strategic attorney fights for victims of motor vehicle accidents
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle crash, the damages you may be able to recover depending upon the circumstances of your case include:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Property damage
- Lost income
- Future decreased earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
Accidents involving trucks can be particularly serious due to their sheer weight and size, and trucking companies often have resources at their disposal that they use to avoid paying the injured party all of what they are entitled to. I will work hard to collect, analyze and present crucial evidence that proves the other party’s fault and get truck accident victims the compensation they need.
Whether you were involved in a truck or other motor vehicle accident, it’s important to note that there is a three-year statute of limitations from the date your injury occurred for filing a legal claim, so securing the help of a personal injury lawyer who will review the evidence surrounding your accident and represent your interests is crucial.
Determined legal advocate represents slip and fall accident victims
When property owners fail to keep their premises safe, serious injuries can occur. If you have been injured in a slip and fall as the result of hazardous conditions on someone’s property, you may be entitled to compensation. I will work with you to prove that you were on the premises legally and that the property owner was responsible for the dangerous condition.
Skilled legal adviser helps individuals understand their rights in dog bite cases
If you’ve been bitten by a dog and are considering a lawsuit, it’s important to understand the laws that may affect your claim. Generally, if a dog is running loose and bites someone, the owner is liable, whether they knew the dog could be vicious or not. Dog bite cases are often complicated and emotional, but my firm can help you understand your options for recovery.
Dedicated lawyer assists with wrongful death claims
A wrongful death claim may be warranted when a person dies as a result of another’s negligent or intentional act. In Maryland, primary beneficiaries of the deceased, which includes spouses, parents and children, can typically bring claims. In Washington D.C., the personal representative of the deceased person’s estate must file the claim on behalf of the beneficiaries. If you’ve lost a family member, I will work to obtain compensation for the loss of any future income, the decedents’ funeral and burial costs, medical bills for their final injuries as well as other damages.
