You might think determining fault after an accident is clean cut. But not all accidents provide enough proof of who caused the collision and exactly what happened leading up to the wreck. More specifically, sideswipe accidents work the same way.

When two cars travelling parallel to each other collide, it’s considered a sideswipe accident. Even though you might think in that scenario that one car was following all the rules and the other person created the accident, it might not be so obvious in the eyes of the law.

New state laws are coming your way in 2020. While a number of the laws we’re going to discuss were implemented in late 2019, most Maryland residents won’t notice a major impact until 2020 or later.

When someone sustains a serious brain injury, it can put their life in jeopardy. The CDC states that traumatic brain injury is a major cause of death and disability in the U.S. When the brain suffers a blow, bump, or jolt, the resulting injuries can affect a person’s ability to communicate, their memory, speech, and motor function. If someone acted negligently and caused the accident that led to a traumatic brain injury, the injured person may be eligible to seek compensation. If your loved one has suffered a brain injury, they may be unable to do this on their own. Our reliable personal injury lawyers can help get your loved one justice.

Belsky, Weinberg & Horowitz, LLC has advocated for the rights of those who were wrongfully injured for years. When a traumatic brain injury puts your life on hold, we will fight for you to get the compensation you need so you can focus on recovering from the accident without worrying about medical expenses.

First responders are almost always the first to arrive on the scene of an emergency. Firefighters, police officers, paramedics, and others put their lives on the line every day without giving it a second thought. While they work to save others who have been in various accidents, they could be putting their own wellbeing at risk. When a first responder is injured in Maryland, they have the right to file a workers’ compensation claim.

In addition to the traditional workers’ comp benefits, first responders are entitled to enhanced benefits because of the work they do. In order to maximize your compensation as an injured first responder, it’s important to work with an experienced law firm. At Belsky, Weinberg & Horowitz, LLC, we’re prepared to ensure you have access to the benefits you need to recover, so you can return to do what you do best—saving lives.

When you aren’t feeling well, you trust a doctor to correctly diagnose you so that you can start feeling better. But when it comes to cancer, sometimes that doesn’t happen. Doctors can incorrectly diagnose a patient as having cancer or not having cancer. When this occurs, it’s often labeled as a misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose. A cancer misdiagnosis can lead to severe consequences for a patient. In some cases, they may undergo unnecessary treatment and/or fail to get the correct treatment. This can cause further health complications and side effects that can affect critical functions of the body, like the immune system.
