Regardless of whether a person is nine years old or eighty-nine, nobody deserves to be injured or killed in a senseless automobile or commercial trucking collision. As experienced personal injury lawyers and traffic accident attorneys, the legal professionals at Lebowitz & Mzhen, LLC, have the training and skills to represent victims of highway wrecks here in Maryland. No matter where an accident occurs, be it Baltimore, Rockville, Gaithersburg or Washington, D.C., if negligence is involved we highly recommend that the victim or his family contact a qualified injury attorney to better understand their rights.
Sadly, most serious or fatal passenger car or motorcycle injury accidents could likely have been prevented given a little more care on the part of the negligent motorist. Regardless of the fact that Maryland’s highway fatality rate is not much different than that of the national average, nobody wants to become a part of these statistics. As experienced trial lawyers, our firm has represented numerous clients who have been severely injured or disabled as a result of someone else’s mistake. We believe that those responsible should be held accountable for their negligence.
At Lebowitz & Mzhen, our attorneys understand from first-hand experience the human toll that a serious car, truck or motorcycle wreck can cause. One of the worst kinds of auto accident are those that happen when one motor vehicle crosses into oncoming traffic and strikes another head-on. Basic physics tells us that this type of car crash will be more severe because the energy of such a collision is usually doubled due to the additive effect of the speed of both vehicles.
Put more simply, when two vehicles of nearly equal weight, both traveling at 50mph, hit each other from opposite directions the net effect is like one of those vehicles hitting a solid wall at 100mph; anyone who has ever viewed the aftermath of a bad accident on the beltway can’t help but imagine the carnage that results from a head-on crash. For those victims of a car-truck head-on wreck, the results can be even worse due to the huge weight disparity between a 25-ton semi tractor-trailer and a 3,000-pound family sedan. Severe injuries and even death can easily result from such an event.
As preventable as many automobile or motorcycle accidents may be, it is an unfortunate fact of life that roadway collisions will likely always be with us. Whether due to the densely populated urban areas in which we live or the necessity of commercial trucking to our nation’s economic vitality, road accidents will continue to take innocent lives, permanently injure thousands of victims, and inflict the pain of loss to an untold number of families the over the coming decades.
As motorists ourselves, the legal staff as Lebowitz & Mzhen is also exposed to the ever-present threat of car or truck collisions along our highways, interstates and city streets. Those instances when a car or truck crosses over the centerline of a two-way street or beltway -- colliding with another car, truck, motorcycle, or city bus -- can be some of the worst in terms of bodily injury. Broken bones and compound fractures aside, the more serious injuries sustained by victims of head-on collisions can include traumatic brain injury, spinal cord damage, internal bleeding or trauma to vital organs.
As Maryland personal injury lawyers dedicated to helping the victims of serious injury accidents, as well as their families, we recommend a consultation with a skilled auto accident attorney to better understand your right to compensation for injuries sustained in the crash. We also advise that anyone involved in an injury-related car or commercial trucking wreck retain a lawyer who can help to preserve as much of the evidence needed to prove one’s case in a court of law.
The attorneys at Lebowitz & Mzhen can assist victims and their families by preparing a strong legal case against the negligent parties and fighting for the injured victim’s right to maximum compensation under the law. As experienced trial attorneys, we prepare every case as if it will be argued in court. Being prepared for a trial can sometimes result in an out-of-court settlement, which can often spare the victim and his family lengthy litigation and allow them to get back quickly to the job of healing both physically and emotionally.
