Hit and Run Lawyer Maryland

Hit and Run Lawyer MarylandIf you have been injured in an accident in Maryland where a driver of one of the vehicles involved in the accident did not stop and stay at the scene of the accident, it may be in your best interest to discuss your situation with a hit and run lawyer in Maryland and its surrounding jurisdictions. You may be entitled to compensation for expenses related to your accident such as medical, property damage, loss of income and for your pain and suffering. 

Maryland Car Accident Law

Maryland’s car accident law is based on a fault system. This means that the driver who was at fault and caused the accident is supposed to pay for damages. In legalese, damages include real property damage as well as for injuries and the expenses related to them.

If you’ve been in a car accident in Maryland, discussing your situation with a knowledgeable hit and run lawyer may help you to determine whether or not you have a personal injury claim that is worth pursuing.

Maryland car accident claims typically focus on liability and damages.

Liability In simple terms, liability is used to refer to who caused an accident or who is responsible for it occuring. When someone is injured in Maryland because of another person or party’s negligence, malice or recklessness, they may be entitled to compensation for expenses related to their accident.

The majority of car accident claims are based on one or more person’s negligence. A plaintiff in a car accident needs to be able to prove the fault of the defendant(s). Many people recommend enlisting the help of a reputable Maryland hit and run accident lawyer to do this.

It is illegal to leave the scene of an accident without exchanging information with other parties involved in it.

Common reasons that a person may be found liable in a car accident case include but are not limited to:

    • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
    • Driving too fast
    • Distracted driving
    • Following too closely
    • Going faster or significantly slower than the flow of traffic
    • Going through a red lot or failing to come to a complete stop at a stop sign
    • Unsafe lane changing

If you have been injured in a Maryland hit and run accident where somebody else may have caused the accident because of one of the above reasons or one(s) not mentioned here, a lawyer who is experienced with successfully defending the rights of accident victims, may be able to help.

Damages 

Damages refer to damages that a negligent person or party caused. This is typically viewed as amounts of money for the harm the victim of the accident was caused. This can refer to compensation for expenses related to a person’s injuries as well as for expenses caused by the need for property repair and/or damage.

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.
