Types of Car Accidents

From Alleghany and Somerset to Charles and Cecil counties, The Old Line State has thousands of rural and urban roadways on which four million drivers travel annually. Not surprisingly, Maryland’s Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) estimates that upward of 100,000 automobile accidents typically occur each year in our state. Of those tens of thousands of motor vehicle crashes, around 500 result in fatalities; and many more (approximately 35,000+) roadway collisions result in injury to one or more passengers, with the balance of those accidents usually involving some amount of property damage.

At Lebowitz & Mzhen, LLC, our legal staff understands how easy it is to become a victim of a traffic accident caused by a negligent motorist. Whether you travel the busy streets of Baltimore, Rockville or Washington, D.C., or if you mainly drive Maryland’s rural routes, the chance of being involved in a bad traffic collision is always present. Carrying proper vehicle insurance is important, but insurance companies should not be considered your friend when a serious injury accident does occur. Especially in cases where severe injuries are involved, it is imperative that victims contact a skilled Maryland personal injury lawyer before ever agreeing to any insurance settlement.

While Maryland’s per capita motor vehicle accident rate is lower than the U.S. as a whole, car, truck and motorcycle collisions still can and do take place. When that happens, the results can be catastrophic for the victims. Our attorneys have the legal training and litigation experience to guide you and your family through what can not only be a physically painful and emotionally difficult time, but also financially challenging for many people.

On average, Prince George’s County has had the greatest number of fatal car accidents in the state. Greater Baltimore typically has the second highest number of deadly automobile accidents, followed by Montgomery and Anne Arundel counties. Driver negligence is a frequent cause of both fatal and non-fatal car crashes, in addition to alcohol, which also plays a role in many serious Maryland traffic wrecks.

As lawyers practicing in the Baltimore area, Lebowitz & Mzhen, LLC, offers free, no-obligation initial legal consultations to victims of negligence-based automobile accidents. If you or someone you love has been badly hurt in a Maryland traffic collision, please feel free to contact our offices to set up an appointment today.

In the meantime, the following links may provide insight into the types of car accidents that can take place on any Maryland surface street, interstate or beltway. Because Maryland personal injury and insurance statutes can be complicated for the average person to understand, we recommend to anyone contemplating a Maryland personal injury claim that they contact a qualified attorney to better understand their rights under the law.

I am proud to have had Lebowitz & Mzhen represent me in an automobile personal injury case I was involved with.
