Injured in an Accident? Know Your Rights.
Nowadays, following the rules of the road is an afterthought. Every day we share the road with inexperienced drivers, drivers without insurance, and distracted individuals. If you are involved in a car or truck accident on a Maryland roadway, you need to work with a lawyer to protect your rights. No matter how major or minor the situation is, having an experienced personal injury attorney will only strengthen your claim.
Understanding Insurance Adjusters
The insurance adjusters are aggressive and very persuasive. They will attempt to have you settle your claim right away and act as if they have your best interests in mind, but it’s important to understand the reality of the situation: they want you to accept as low an offer as possible. No matter what kind of vehicle accident you’ve been involved in, Albers & Associates can help you. We can even handle major truck accidents.
To defend yourself against adjusters, it’s important to document the accident with as much detail as possible. Here are some tips on how to document an accident in Maryland.
Do You Have Any Injuries?
Automobile accidents can be minor, like a fender bender, or life-threatening. The injuries sustained can surface days, months, or years later. This is another reason it is important not to settle your claim immediately. The pain caused by your accident is something you may have to live with for the rest of your life.

- Severe brain trauma

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.
