If there were one thing consistently true about car accidents, it would be that we never know when they’re going to happen, and they occur when we least expect them to. You could be on your way to the office at 7 a.m. and get hit by a drunk driver. You might be running errands on a Saturday afternoon and get rear-ended by someone who is distracted by a smartphone.

They happen in an instant, but they can change the course of our lives forever. Indeed, the catastrophic injuries from a Maryland car crash could leave you disabled and unable to work for the rest of your life. Or, you might be injured, recovering and unable to work for many months following a crash. Depending on the extent of your injuries, the lost income from not being able to work and the medical costs can add up to become astronomical and unaffordable in a heartbeat. How are you supposed to pay for all this?

If you were injured in an auto accident, and the collision was not your fault, then you might be able to seek financial compensation from the party that caused your accident and injuries. At-fault parties following a crash could be the other driver, the city if it failed to maintain the roadway, a negligent car manufacturer, a negligent auto parts maker or some other party.

At the Law Office of Kevin L. Beard, PA, we represent people who have been hurt in auto collisions due to no fault of their own. The first order of business when we take on a new case is to ensure that our client receives all the appropriate medical care that he or she requires. The second order of business is to seek financial claims against any and all at-fault parties to pursue fair and just compensation.
