Tips for Building a Strong Car Accident Claim

Baltimore is conveniently positioned within minutes of Washington, D.C. Its roadways are notoriously congested with motorists traveling into the area on business or through the city on a trip up north or down south. With the abundance of traffic that our Maryland city sees, it’s no wonder Baltimore sees its fair share of car accidents.

It can be quite inconvenient if a car accident in Baltimore leaves you with physical damage to your vehicle, rendering it non-operational. However, matters may be worse if you suffer from debilitating car crash injuries. This is especially the case if they’re of the life-altering variety, like a traumatic brain injury, amputation, or spinal cord injury.

How Many Accidents Are Caused by Tailgating?
Over the past five years, the state of Maryland has averaged over 4,000 crashes caused by driver aggression each year. This equates to over 2,000 injuries and nearly 50 deaths every year. Each and every one of these injuries and fatalities could have been prevented if a driver had not lost control of their anger and used their vehicle as a weapon.

Tailgating is a serious and violent form of aggressive driving. “Tailgating,” “following too closely,” or “riding someone’s bumper” describes when a driver leaves little room between their vehicle and the vehicle in front of them. While the three-second rule is recommended to measure a safe following distance, tailgating usually leaves drivers with less than one second of reaction time.

Many Baltimore drivers who become entangled in Maryland crashes do this. However, despite it being possible to settle a car accident claim without a lawyer, there are various reasons why it’s not ideal.
