Injured? Know Your Rights.
Personal injury cases are often intimidating and fair treatment isn’t always simply given to you. That’s why the professional personal injury lawyers at Albers & Associates are committed to ensuring just treatment for our clients involved in these cases.
We understand how much damage a personal injury can do to your finances, physical health, and ability to work. Our seasoned attorneys know what it takes to take control of your case and get you the compensation you deserve.
The Process of Your Personal Injury Case
In Maryland, a personal injury case is commonly a lengthy process, and it’s difficult to go through it on your own. When you reach out to Albers & Associates and set up a free legal consultation, we will explain in more detail how we work to achieve success for you in your personal injury case. The process, in its simplified form, typically goes as follows:
- Meet with your lawyer at Albers & Associates.
- Begin the lawsuit.
- Enter into the discovery phase.
- Attempt pre-trial resolutions.
- Reach a settlement.
If a settlement isn’t or cannot be reached, your case will go to trial and your attorney will defend your case in court to get you the compensation you need from your injury.
No Recovery = No Fees
Healing from the physical and emotional damage a personal injury can cause is already difficult. Having to worry about legal fees on top of that shouldn’t complicate the process. That’s why we make a promise to our clients that if you are unable to recover damages for your injury, you will not pay a legal fee for our services related to your case.
We Tend to Your Case, You Tend to Your Injury
At Albers & Associates, we understand your need for compensation when you are injured in an accident. The financial reward you will receive at settlement can be deemed compensation for a number of things, including:
- Doctors Visits
- Medical Procedures
- Physical Therapy
- Lost Wages (Past or Future)
- Future Bills
- Lost Earning Capacity
- Pain and Suffering
- Mental Health Visits
Many personal injury cases are taken on a contingency basis, meaning your legal expenses are contingent upon the compensation you receive once settlement has been reached or the lawsuit has gone into effect. Essentially, your lawyer is paid once you get paid. Other expenses that may be incurred during the legal process of a personal injury case include court filing fees, depositions, medical record obtainment, and payment to any expert witnesses necessary if the case goes to trial.

Personal Injury FAQ
What Qualifies as 'Serious' Personal Injury?
A case is categorized as a serious personal injury if any of the following resulted from the accident:
- Severe brain trauma
- Spinal cord injuries
- 3rd degree burns
- Any injury that causes serious and long-term disfigurement
What is a Wrongful Death Accident?
Our attorneys can successfully get you the compensation you deserve in a wrongful death case, which is when a loved one has died due to the carelessness or negligence of another person involved. Spouses, life partners, children, and other family members of the deceased can be entitled to recover damages for both emotional and financial loss.
Who is Liable for a Car Accident in Maryland?
Finding the person at fault in a car accident comes down to proving negligence on one or both sides of the equation. Whether you’re another driver or a pedestrian, you will need a lawyer to come to your defense. Because the state of Maryland employs a contributory negligence rule, your entire case will be at risk if the opposing counsel can prove that you were negligent in anyway.
