What to Expect After a Car Accident

According to the most recent National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports, nearly 7 million motor vehicle crashes are reported to police in the United States each year. By way of comparison, this number is higher than the total number of arrests each year in the U.S. for murder, robbery, theft, arson, fraud, vandalism, drug abuse, gambling, embezzlement, and prostitution combined. Chances are, you will be involved in a car accident in your lifetime. In fact, statistics show that most people are involved in a vehicle crash multiple times during their life, roughly once every 18 years.

If you’ve never been involved in a collision before, it’s good to familiarize yourself with what to expect after a car accident. And even if you have been in a vehicle crash of some kind in the past, you may have questions that would best be discussed with an attorney with experience in car accident law. Every car accident case is unique, and our legal team at Belsky, Weinberg & Horowitz, LLC is available to answer any questions you have regarding the specifics of your car accident case.

What to Do During a Roadside Emergency in Maryland

There are plenty of reasons you could be driving in Maryland, just like any other state. Whether you live here or were just visiting, a roadside emergency can take you by surprise at any time. Even if you knew your car wasn’t in the best shape, it’s still incredibly frustrating and worrisome when you’re stuck on the side of the road with a broken-down car or another emergency.

Since you likely weren’t prepared for this situation, you need to know what to do. Whether you’re trying to figure out what you need to do right now on the side of the road, or you’re reading up as a preventative measure, it’s crucial to know what to do during a roadside emergency in Maryland. Let’s take a look at some of the most important steps.

Assessing Your Situation in a Roadside Emergency

The first thing you need to do when you’re in a roadside emergency in Maryland, as with anywhere, is to get out of harm’s way. As best as possible, you’ll need to move your vehicle out of the way so that you are not in harm’s way or in traffic. Once you’re safe and have your hazard lights flashing, you can start to assess your situation, which is also crucial.

As personal injury lawyers with decades of experience practicing law, we have seen the scenario many times: A person is injured in an accident that was not their fault. They sought medical help and were diagnosed with an injury. But later, they missed a physical therapy appointment or forgot to fill a prescription. Without a knowledgeable lawyer to defend them, that small misstep could cost them thousands of dollars in a personal injury claim.

It’s impossible to imagine the physical and emotional trauma a parent whose child is harmed during childbirth experiences. The psychological trauma of a birth injury can be just as difficult to overcome as a physical injury, if not more so. Severe stress, postpartum depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder are only some of the ways individuals are impacted following a traumatic childbirth.

What Are the Factors That Determine the Value of a Truck Accident Claim?

Published on Sep 16, 2021 at 4:13 pm in Truck Accidents.

Truck on road

Large truck accidents, although statistically less frequent per mile than passenger vehicle wrecks, can be the most damaging. Research conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) revealed that the majority of deaths in large truck crashes are passenger vehicle occupants. In 2019, 4,119 people died in large truck wrecks, and 67% of those people were passengers of other cars involved in the crash. So while driving a large commercial truck is an implicitly dangerous occupation, the risk can be even more substantial for drivers who share the road with these tractor-trailers weighing 20-30 times more than a car.

Although it is well-known that drunk and impaired driving causes thousands of unnecessary deaths and injuries each year, many people still choose to ignore the consequences and get behind the wheel when they are unfit to drive. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), roughly 28 people die every day in the U.S. in crashes involving drunk drivers. And in the state of Maryland alone, the statistics are tragically high. State law makes it illegal to drive with a blood alcohol content (BAC) at or above 0.08%, and there is a zero-tolerance policy for drivers under the age of 21. However, between 2009 and 2018, there were 1,515 people killed in crashes involving an alcohol-impaired driver in Maryland.
