One vehicle accident can threaten your health, finances and even your ability to do your job. Approximately 35,000 injury-causing crashes occur each year on Maryland roads. After the wreckage is cleared, victims of these collisions are forced to deal with insurance companies and defense lawyers who are intent on minimizing payouts. Located in Baltimore, Holzman & Associates, L.L.C. stands up for people who have been hurt in vehicle accidents, as well as for their families. Since 1966, our attorneys have won substantial verdicts and have negotiated favorable settlements in matters relating to car, truck, motorcycle and pedestrian accidents.
From start to finish, our experienced attorneys advance your legal case and explain in detail the legal issues that might be relevant, such as:
Speaking with an accomplished personal injury lawyer as quickly as possible after an accident can accelerate the legal process. We provide a free initial consultation and flexible scheduling so there’s no need to delay.
A vehicle collision is physically and emotionally jarring. Even if you don’t feel that you need immediate medical attention, your first priority is to make sure that you and everyone else involved in the accident is safe. Report the accident at once and if you are able, you should begin to gather information and take photographs of the accident scene. Record your impressions and get the contact information of the other drivers and witnesses. Don’t admit fault or try to plead your case as to why the other motorist is to blame. Those issues will be resolved later.
Each accident is unique and when a collision involves a pedestrian or a vehicle that is not a standard passenger car, special legal considerations apply. Having litigated these matters for decades, we are familiar with the specific regulations that apply to trucks and commercial vehicles and use that knowledge to identify potential violations that might have contributed to the crash. Our lawyers also understand the rules, sometimes ignored by drivers, which are designed to protect pedestrians, cyclists and motorcycle riders. When questions exist regarding possible design or manufacture defects, we’ll review whether a product liability action should be initiated. For example, many SUV rollovers were caused in part by the high center of gravity on those vehicles.
