Injury-related Trucking Crashes Resulting from Commercial Trucker Negligence
In cities and towns all across Maryland, such as Annapolis, Bowie, Owning Mills, Gaithersburg, victims of roadway accidents may find they have grounds to file a personal injury claim against the negligent party or parties they believe were the cause of their injuries. Depending on the particular circumstances and/or the extent of bodily injuries sustained, the results of any vehicular collision can prove to be serious and sometimes life-changing.
When it comes to traffic-related injury accidents, those involving large commercial vehicles are some of the worst in terms of permanent injury. Catastrophic collisions can happen to most any person, whether he or she is driving a passenger car, riding on a motorcycle, as a passenger on a charter bus, or traversing a busy urban intersection. As experienced trucking-related accident lawyers, the legal team at Lebowitz & Mzhen, LLC, understands that motor vehicle accidents, and commercial trucking wrecks in particular, can leave the victim and his family with serious physical, emotional and financial problems.
We know from experience that the results of a bad commercial trucking accident have the potential to put a person in the hospital for weeks or months. And there is no guarantee that those individuals with complicated spinal cord damage or traumatic brain injuries will even be able to live a normal life in the future. Our goal is to help victims of commercial motor vehicle (CMV) accidents recover the damages due to them under the law.
At Lebowitz & Mzhen, we believe that it is imperative for victims of an injury-related auto or trucking collision to consult with a qualified personal injury attorney whenever he or she believes that their injuries were caused by carelessness or outright negligence on the part of another driver. In particular, commercial truckers have not only a moral duty, but a professional responsibility to operate their vehicles in a safe and careful manner. Not doing so, and thereby causing injury to one or more people, is simply unconscionable.
Regardless of the kind of roadway collision or the types of vehicles involved, our professional team of injury lawyers is prepared to represent victims and their families in a court of law. Our job is to bring all the facts to bear against the negligent parties. With years of litigation experience in auto and trucking accident cases, we understand how many serious commercial truck crashes can turn lives upside down. From side-impact collisions and rear-end crashes to pedestrian injury accidents and hit-and-run cases, victims should never feel uncomfortable about fighting for their rights.
And the reasons to pursue a personal injury claim are numerous. Not only do many victims incur doctor and hospitalization costs immediately following a bad traffic accident, but long-term complications from current injuries can crop up throughout a person’s life, causing unexpected financial costs years down the road. As professional auto and trucking injury attorneys, we understand the implications of many types of bodily injury, and the potential long-term consequences. As a victim of another driver’s negligence, there is no reason for anyone to bear the burden alone.
Depending on the particular aspects of an injury-related highway crash, commercial trucking accidents often result in complex litigation involving multiple defendants, such as the trucker himself, the transport company who employs him, the shipping company who loaded the truck, and the insurance companies that carry policies for any or all of these entities. Lebowitz & Mzhen knows that when the victim of a serious trucking accident comes through our door, the damage for that individual has already been done. Because of this, victims need a lawyer with experience in pursuing maximum compensation for their injuries, as well as any other related damages.
No matter the original cause of a roadway accident, such as careless or reckless vehicle operation, distracted or drunken driving, or even aggressive behavior on the road, whenever negligence is indicated there is no reason why a victim should not consider filing a personal injury lawsuit. Particularly in cases involving commercial vehicles and professional drivers, our Baltimore personal injury attorneys are ready and willing to help the injured parties recover what they are due under the laws of Maryland.
If you or someone you love has been badly injured as a result of the actions of a negligent motorist or commercial trucker, our skilled legal team is prepared to help you understand your rights under the law and to provide options for pursuing a personal injury claim. For the families of individuals who died as a result of a negligence-related CMV accident, we have the necessary experience to assist them in filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible parties.
At Lebowitz & Mzhen, our lawyers prepare each client’s case with the full intent of taking a lawsuit to trial. With proper preparation, some commercial trucking injury suits do not end up in front of a judge because the strength of the client’s case may bring about an out-of-court settlement. In such cases, this legal preparation can sometimes avoid a long, drawn out courtroom battle, which often spares the victim and his family from what can be an emotionally draining experience.
