Our Lawyers Represent Motor Vehicle Accident Victims Across Maryland and Washington, D.C.
The days, weeks and months following an auto accident are often filled with pain and uncertainty. While the very purpose of insurance coverage is to protect against losses associated with such accidents, too often insurance companies drag their feet when it comes to settling a claim or, worse yet, refuse to offer fair compensation to accident victims. At our Washington, D.C. personal injury law firm, Lightfoot Law, PLLC, we will work to help you obtain the full, fair damages you deserve. We help people in the District of Columbia and Maryland injured in car accidents, truck crashes, pedestrian accidents and motorcycle collisions obtain payments for medical expenses, property damages, and other losses.
Our Skilled Litigators Represent Car Accident Victims
When it comes to determining which car accident victims are able to recover for their injuries, the laws in Maryland and Washington, D.C. are among the strictest in the country. In fact, Maryland and the District of Columbia are two of only a few jurisdictions that still employ the doctrine of contributory negligence, which bars a plaintiff from recovering if they are found to be even the slightest bit at fault for the accident. Insurance companies know this and routinely deny accident victims’ claims. Our attorneys are well-versed in the laws of each jurisdiction and ready to bring car accident claims against negligent motorists and hesitant insurance companies.
Compensation Following Serious Truck Accidents in Washington, D.C.
While equipment failure is responsible for a small percentage of semi-truck accidents, many tractor-trailer accidents are the result of driver negligence. Common causes include distracted driving, driving under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances, and drowsy driving. At Lightfoot Law, PLLC, we represent truck accident victims in claims by challenging negligent truckers and their employers. We will investigate whether federal and state regulations governing commercial vehicles were violated in your case.
How We Represent Pedestrians Injured in Washington D.C. Traffic Accidents
Pedestrian accidents are among the most likely to result in serious injury or death. In fact, there are more than 3,200 Maryland pedestrian accidents each year, resulting in approximately 2,800 injuries and 110 fatalities. Approximately one-third of these accidents occur while the pedestrian is in a crosswalk. Our team of hands-on injury lawyers works closely with accident victims and their families to help secure full awards based on the injuries sustained.
Our Auto Accident Lawyers Represent Motorcycle Accident Victims
Unfortunately, motorcyclists — especially those who are involved in an accident — are the victims of an unfair social stigma that views them as aggressive, unpredictable drivers. However, most motorcycle accidents are caused by negligent drivers, not the motorcyclist. And many bikers injured in collisions with cars suffer serious harm, requiring long-term and costly care. We provide diligent representation for motorcycle accident victims in claims against the drivers responsible for their injuries.
