Maryland Auto Accident Law
The term tort is legal jargon for any wrongdoing. By definition a tort is a wrongful act, not including a breach of contract or trust, that results in injury to another’s person, property, reputation, or the like, and for which the injured party may be entitled to compensation. The most common type of tort is operating a motor vehicle in a negligent manner that causes property damage and or personal injury. The person who commit the act or causes the accident is called the tortfeasor.
According to Maryland accident law an injured party may be able to recover damages due to being the victim of an automobile accident. This is true for drivers, passengers, people injured by uninsured motorists and injury victims who were partially at fault.

Liability In Bethesda Maryland Car Accidents
In motor tort cases the law must decide who the negligent party or parties are. Sometimes liability in a motor vehicle accident can be very easily assessed. Other times, if the accident was complicated with multiple vehicles, causes and potentially responsible parties deducing who is liable, and for what damage or expenses can be extremely convoluted. Our skilled Bethesda car accident lawyers will be able to determine liability, make those parties obligated legally and get you the compensation, s well as benefits you and your family deserve.
What Happens In Accidents After Liability Is Established
Once liability is established most motor tort cases in Maryland are resolved via settlement by the insurance companies. Settlements are reached by considering factors such as current medical costs, future medical costs, long term care and rehabilitation costs, lost income due to missed work time, pain, suffering and, if applicable, funeral expenses, loss of companionship and loss of parental guidance. Sometimes a settlement cannot be obtained after a motor tort case. In these instances your attorney can take the case to trial and attempt to have the jury award you compensation and benefits via a favorable verdict. Once retained our team of Bethesda car accident lawyers will be fully prepared and willing to take your case to trial on your behalf.
Handling The Insurance Carriers
A very common issue after a Bethesda auto accident is how to handle the insurance companies. This is one of the most stressful and aggravating aspects of a personal injury case. You may feel you are getting the runaround and no one seems to be able to help. The reason you may feel that way is that the insurance companies do not want to help you at all. Paying accident and injury claims is a financial loss and they will do everything to prevent paying your claim. This can flat out denying your claim regardless of what you are eligible for legally.
