Car accidents in Silver Spring
Most of us drive every day – whether it’s commuting, working as a driver, taking the kids back and forth to school, or running errands. Here in Silver Spring, though, there are a lot of people, which means a lot of us on the road. Add in the DC-adjacent traffic, and there can occasionally be some risky driving conditions.
And there’s certainly no shortage of roads and highways to choose from here in Silver Spring. The city sees a lot of vehicle travel in and around the area, via the Beltway, Route 97, Route 29, Route 193, and Route 390, Route 410, and Route 650 – not to mention the local roads and side streets.
The Maryland Department of Transportation (DOT) reports that Maryland averages about 106,000 car accidents a year, with 502 fatalities and 46,762 injuries. Montgomery County in particular averages 12,905 accidents each year, with 4,560 injuries and 38 fatalities.
We don’t get in the car expecting an accident to happen. Even the world’s safest and most cautious driver can’t control the actions of another reckless or careless driver. Auto accidents can take you by surprise, so it’s good to understand the risks and causes.
What caused your Maryland car accident?
It’s not always obvious who, or what, caused your car accident. It may not be like what we’re used to seeing on TV, where the other driver is obviously under the influence, is immediately caught by police, or hits you in front of a group of witnesses. It’s true that in some cases you’ll have a good amount of evidence on your side, but no matter what, your Silver Spring personal injury attorney will carry out investigations and work diligently to prove fault on the part of the negligent person or entity.
A qualified car crash attorney has access to resources and experts to help build a successful case. After your accident, your lawyer’s investigation can include things like obtaining all police reports and medical records, interviewing witnesses, hiring accident reconstruction experts, or reviewing surveillance video.
In our decades of experience, we’ve found some common causes of car accidents:

These are only some of many reasons you could find yourself in a Silver Spring car accident. Every accident and every situation is unique. One thing is consistent, however.
