The negligent actions of others tend to cause major injuries to innocent people. When those people don’t know what to do, it’s imperative that they get representation that will fight for their rights. A Glen Burnie personal injury lawyer from Belsky, Weinberg & Horowitz, LLC will do just that. We believe in standing up for those who can’t stand up for themselves. We’ll do everything we can to get you the compensation you deserve.
The legal process can be confusing and overwhelming to handle on your own. When we’re at your side, we’ll make sure your claim is properly filed and on time so you have the best chance of success. You can rest assured knowing that skilled professionals are going to do everything possible to win you a successful settlement.
What Happens After an Accident?
The moments, days, and even weeks after an accident can be difficult and confusing. You may still be trying to come to terms with what happened. It’s jarring to be hurt because of someone else’s negligence. While you know that they were at fault, you may be wondering about making a claim and how to proceed.
Insurance companies will often try to get in touch with you as soon as possible. At some point, you may be approached by an insurance adjuster who wants to discuss your settlement. Their goal is to settle the matter as quickly as possible. This option may seem like a good one at first, just so the matter is behind you.
However, you may not know the extent of your injuries or the care you’re going to need. The insurance company is protecting their best interests, not yours. They want to save as much money as possible. It’s in your best interests to not give any official statements, sign any documents, or agree on a settlement offer.
Without representation, you may get an unfavorable settlement where you’re given less compensation than you deserve. This can lead to financial difficulties in the future when it’s time to start paying back medical bills. The best move you can make to protect your rights is to hire a Glen Burnie personal injury lawyer.
What Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Do for You?
Belsky, Weinberg & Horowitz, LLC is proud to be based in Baltimore, and we extend our services to all those in Maryland who need our help. When you hire an attorney, they will conduct an investigation of your case. This will include finding out how the other party was negligent, how their actions affected you, and what your injuries cost you and will continue to cost you.
You will possibly be able to recover economic and noneconomic damages. Economic damages are items you can assign a direct dollar amount. Your economic damages may include past medical bills, cost of future medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and more.
Noneconomic damages are more difficult to calculate, but still an important part of your claim. The pain and suffering you endured or loss of enjoyment of life as a result of your injury aren’t items one can easily assign a monetary amount, but these are still outcomes of your wrongful injury. A skilled lawyer will look at the whole picture of your injury, which includes how it has and will continue to affect your future.
After diligently going over those details, your attorney will have an ideal settlement number in mind for you. This will help you cover the costs of the accident and live comfortably as you heal from your injury. The last thing you need is financial stress and it’s our job to bring peace of mind to the situation.

A Closer Look at Glen Burnie
Glen Burnie has an interesting history. In 1812, Elias Glenn, a district attorney, named his property “Glennsburne.” He also established a county seat in Baltimore City. As his grandson brought business to their land, they became successful in the 19th century. They owned several thousands of acres of land. Within the next few generations of the family, the town was officially called Glenburnie in 1888. Many years later in 1930, Louis J. DeAlba, the postmaster, made the final edit that made that split the name into two words, which is what it is called today.
During the 1920s and 1930s, the town began to get more famous due to the opening of two highways: Crain Highway and Ritchie Highway. Glen Burnie also had the first shopping mall built on the United States East Coast in the late 50s. As another was built in the 60s, Glen Burnie was bringing in a lot of businesses and activities for its citizens. This resulted in the development of apartments, houses, and retirement communities.
As of 2016, the population of Glen Burnie was 69,499. It’s definitely grown over the years since its establishment. Glen Burnie is a gorgeous place with plenty of delicious restaurants and unique attractions for everyone to enjoy.
There are many parks for those who love to be outside. They can see the natural beauty of Glen Burnie and enjoy walking when the weather is pleasant. There are also parks with playgrounds that allow children to play and establish a sense of community. Sawmill Creek Park, Friendship Park, Kinder Farm Park, and Patapsco State Park are all fantastic places to check out.
For those who like the nightlife, Glen Burnie is a short drive away from the Live! Casino & Hotel. They can go enjoy all that the casino has to offer, which is more than just gambling. They typically have fun events and shows that everyone will love to see.
Glen Burnie also has an interesting art installation attraction, a mirror yard. An artist has turned his front yard into a collection of reflective mirrors, building beautiful sculptures and mosaics that you’ll surely never forget.
