Factors that Increase the Likelihood of a Maryland MVA

Factors that Increase the Likelihood of a Maryland MVAThere are many different factors that increase the likelihood of a Maryland motor vehicle accident (MVA) that warrants the need for a Maryland MVA lawyer.

Were you innocently on your way to work?

Driving your kids to soccer practice?

Running your Saturday morning errands?

Unfortunately, a MVA may occur at any point in time. In fact, accidents are far more likely to occur when traveling by motor vehicle than other forms of travel. Some, may be able to walk away following a MVA by only experiencing very minimal damages. However, the more unfortunate may experience damages and injuries that are far more severe. A lawyer from Cohen & Cohen may bring forth a wealth of knowledge and experience that may help when it comes to pursuing a Maryland MVA case. With such high rates of motor vehicle crashes, it’s no wonder there are so many factors that may increase the risk of an accident.

  1. Drivers without Experience: Newer and inexperienced drivers may be more likely to be involved in an accident because they are not likely to have developed the skill needed to mitigate risk of an accident when faced with a potential hazard.
  2. Teenage Drivers with Teen Passengers: Teenage drivers are often inexperienced. In addition, when teenage drivers are in the motor vehicle with their peers, they may easily be distracted by them. As a result, a teenager (who is also likely inexperienced) may have the added risk for an accident.
  3. Driving Too Fast: High speeds may make it nearly impossible to respond when faced with the unexpected. A driver who is speeding may be unable to stop in time if the motor vehicles ahead of them come to a sudden stop. They may also lose control of the vehicle when driving at such high speeds.

Paying close attention to the road and following all rules can help to prevent a Maryland MVA but if you have been in one, it may be in your best interest to discuss your situation with a reputable MVA lawyer.

  1. Inclement Weather: When the weather is poor, visibility and road conditions may be severely impacted. This may make it difficult to drive, and may ultimately result in an accident.
  2. Texting and Driving: All it takes is a second of looking down at a text message for a driver to cause an accident. Texting and driving is incredibly dangerous, and illegal in most states. Using your phone to text may cause you to veer off the road, drift into another lane, fail to break when traffic is stopping and many many more.
  3. Driving Under the Influence of Drugs or Alcohol: Driving when impaired can have disastrous effects on not only the person under the influence, but those they share the road with. When a person is under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol and chooses to get behind the wheel of a vehicle, they may put themselves and others at risk of a MVAs.

If you have been injured in a MVA in Maryland by a negligent driver, you may be entitled to compensation that a lawyer can help you to seek.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
