Accidents Our Bel Air Car Accident Lawyers Handle
Our firm handles all types of car accident, motorcycle accident and trucking accident claims. Common examples are:
DUI Accidents: Alcohol is involved in most fatal car accidents in the United States. Someone choosing to drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol not only endanger themselves but they also put others at risk. This is in the form of other drivers, passengers and pedestrians. As many DUI related motor vehicle accidents often occur at high speeds they consequently end in catastrophic injuries or wrongful death.
Intersection Accidents: Throughout the Annapolis, Baltimore and Bel Air areas, particularly busy intersections on major highways, are often very dangerous roads to travel on. Many serious motor vehicle accidents occur at intersections. With so much activity at an intersection, including vehicles turning, drivers changing lanes, pedestrians crossing and stopping at stoplights there is an increased risk of driver negligence and a consequential auto accident.
Lane Change Accidents: When operating a motor vehicle there are many things going on at once and many things you have to be aware of at all times. While you may do your part to safely operate a motor vehicle that does not mean that other drivers will. A common type of traffic accidents is a lane change accident and they occur at high speeds, low speeds, on interstates as well as secondary roads.
Rear End Collisions: A rear end collision auto accident is a very common type of motor vehicle accident. Often times, a rear end collision may not result in an immediate catastrophic, debilitating or fatal injury as head-on collision might. In rear end auto accidents the extent of injury suffered in a rear end accident often does not manifest until days after the accident due to the fact that rear end collisions frequently occur at lower speeds than head on collisions or side impact accident.
There are many more types of car accidents that can occur and our firm handles them all as well as the injuries they inflict on the victim.
