Determining the cause of a motor vehicle accident is half the battle on the road to maximizing recovery for an injured person. The same is true for surviving family members preparing to file a wrongful death claim after a fatal crash. Proving how an auto or truck accident occurred on Route 50 or Route 404 can open the door to compensation from liable parties and/or their insurers. Just as important, you must receive medical treatment which properly addresses all the injuries you have suffered. Our firm can direct you in obtaining the medical treatment you need.
Insurers and other responsible parties may offer quick settlements after a rear-ender, head-on collision or multi-car accident on Route 50 or Route 404 in an attempt to avoid paying the full dollar value of a case. This is one reason that someone who was seriously injured as a driver or passenger in a car or truck or on a motorcycle — and immediate family members — should consult with a lawyer as soon as possible.
An attorney on your side can keep you informed of your rights and get an investigation underway to determine the cause of the crash, such as:
- Another motorist’s error, such as an improper lane change, speeding or disregard of a traffic signal
- Car or truck driver fatigue, distraction (texting, for example) or carelessness
- Another driver’s poor reflexes due to consumption of drugs or alcohol
Any person or business responsible for circumstances leading to a crash may be held accountable to compensate an injured person. In rare cases, government entities may be responsible for accidents on Route 50 and Route 404, too, when poor signage or inadequate road maintenance is a factor.Discovering Causes of Auto Accidents on Maryland Route 50 and Route 404 to Build Strong Injury Claims
