Common Causes of Car Accidents in Maryland

Assisting those injured in motor vehicle accidents in Baltimore, Columbia and throughout the State

Maryland has some of the busiest highways in the Country and they get more congested each year. Maryland drivers share the road with tourists traveling on the East Coast to Washington D.C., to the beaches and Florida, as well as interstate truck drivers, motorcyclists and out-of-state commuters all trying to get from Point A to Point B. This contributes to your chances of being in a car accident any time you get behind the wheel or you are a passenger in someone else’s vehicle. A car accident could leave you injured and in need of our assistance. You may need help getting medical care, getting your vehicle fixed, securing a rental vehicle and obtaining reimbursement for lost wages, as well as compensation for your pain, suffering, aggravation and inconvenience.

Car accidents on the rise

The United States is on track for the deadliest year on the roadways since 2007, according to the National Safety Council. Traffic deaths and serious injuries in 2015 are much higher than 2014. At Plaxen & Adler, P.A., we attribute that to the rise to our Country’s reliance on electronic devices which leads to distracted and inattentive driving. We see injuries caused by drunk drivers, hazardous and negligent road conditions, a failure to drive carefully in poor weather, but the most common cause of accidents is simple inattentiveness.

Following an automobile accident, an injured person seeking medical care has his or her care complicated by the task of coordinating benefits through various insurance companies. An injured person often gets conflicting advice from medical providers and the various insurance people involved in the case. An injured person needs an experienced attorney that understands PIP, Med Pay, Medicare, Medicaid, health insurance, subrogation, ERISA and third party liability claims. At Plaxen & Adler, P.A., we are well equipped to handle the challenging tasks of coordinating your insurance benefits, helping you obtain a replacement vehicle and work closely with your doctors and insurance carriers to ensure that you get the medical care that you require.
