Maryland Car Accident Attorneys Help People Injured in All Types of Accidents
The resources and experience to investigate and reconstruct any type of accident
After being involved in an auto accident, it is rare for any driver to not spend at least some time considering what he or she could have done differently to avoid it. Even when that accident was clearly the fault of another driver. The fact is that even an innocent driver can fail to grasp a potential danger until it is too late. There are numerous types of auto accidents, as well as numerous possible causes of those accidents. Determining the cause of a particular auto accident can depend greatly upon the type of auto accident.
At the five metropolitan Washington D.C. offices of Karp, Wigodsky, Norwind, Kudel & Gold, P.A., our accomplished Maryland auto accident attorneys help people injured in any type of motor vehicle accident. We have the experience, knowledge and resources to reconstruct any type of accident, determine the conditions and causes which led to that accident, and successfully present the facts of that accident to judges and juries on the behalf of anyone injured in that accident.
How many different types of auto accidents are there?
While no two accidents can be exactly alike, there are still several general classifications which take into account the vehicles involved, the type of impact, and the conditions particular to a location. These include:
- Rear-end collisions—when a driver fails to adequately brake in time after the vehicle in front stops or slows
- Head-on collisions—occurring when a driver fails to notice signage or weaves across the centerline
- Sideswipe collisions—often caused by a sudden lane change
- “T-bone collisions”—usually occurring in an intersection, when one car strikes another broadside
- Single car accidents—causes can include road or weather conditions, a defective auto part, or distracted driving
- Rollover accidents—often involving trucks or SUVs
- Multi-vehicle collisions—sometimes an initial collision can cause a chain reaction effecting surrounding vehicles
- Pedestrian, bicycle, and motorcycle accidents—even a minor accident can seriously injury someone who is not inside a vehicle
There are also certain legal issues which can arise after an accident, such as a hit-and-run accident in which the driver flees the scene, or an accident involving an uninsured motorist.
Why is the type of auto accident that I had important?
An experienced Maryland auto accident attorney, already familiar with the roads and typical driving conditions in the area, has a special understanding of the particular legal considerations associated with all types of auto accidents. For example, a rollover accident may have been caused by faulty vehicle design or a payload improperly loaded onto a truck. T-bone collisions and wrong-way collisions may have been caused by inadequate signage or limited roadway visibility. Some accidents involving pedestrians could have been prevented had adequate safety measures, such as a crosswalk or a guardrail been in place. And of course, there are also those accidents caused by negligent driving, such as speeding, tailgating, driving while intoxicated or falling asleep at the wheel. A skilled Maryland auto accident attorney has the resources and knowledge to reconstruct your accident and successfully present the evidence necessary to prove your case.
