We Handle All Types of Personal Injury Claims

At Jimeno & Gray, our talented Maryland personal injury lawyers have extensive experience handling a wide variety of accident claims. Our attorneys are former prosecutors who know how to investigate and litigate the toughest cases, and we won’t back down from a battle with the insurance company.

Although every case we handle is unique in many ways, some of the common types of personal injury claims we pursue involve:

  • Car Accidents: Drivers who engage in distracted driving, drunk driving, fatigued driving, speeding, and other recklessness can be held accountable for injuries they cause. Insurance adjustors know what they want to pay for car accident claims without ever meeting the accident victim. Our dedicated car accident attorneys will calculate and demand full payment for all of your losses.
  • Truck Accidents: After a serious crash, our truck accident attorneys will investigate the truck driver, the trucking company, and additional parties that may be held responsible for the wreck. Truck accident cases require knowledge of the trucking industry and federal regulations that govern it, as well as the resources to fight large corporations.
  • Motorcycle Accidents: Motorcyclists who are hit by motor vehicles often suffer serious injuries, even when wearing a helmet and other protective gear. Our dedicated motorcycle accident lawyers hold drivers accountable when they neglect their obligation to watch for motorcycles and safely share the roads.
  • Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents: Drivers in Maryland are required by law to yield to pedestrians and bicyclists. Our skilled accident attorneys will identify every possible source of compensation after a bicycle or pedestrian accident. We also investigate hit-and-run crashes and help families pursue wrongful death claims if they lost a loved one in a crash.
  • Medical Malpractice: When a patient is harmed or dies while under medical care, it is crucial that an independent investigation of the incident take place. Our medical malpractice attorneys aggressively investigate cases of medication errors, surgical errors, delayed diagnosis, and other preventable medical errors and negligence.
  • Workers’ Compensation: The Maryland workers’ compensation system is a no-fault insurance program that covers workers who are injured or become ill while on the job. You should not have to fight for workers’ comp benefits, but many employers and insurers dispute or deny valid clams.

After a serious accident, injured victims often find themselves being hurt again by the callousness of profit-driven insurance companies. Unfortunately, insurers will focus on their bottom line when determining how little they can pay or whether they can flat-out deny a claim.

Without professional legal representation, seriously injured accident victims risk getting a lowball settlement on a high-value claim. Do not agree to anything or sign any paperwork from an insurance company without talking to our knowledgeable personal injury attorneys about your claim. Schedule a free consultation today.

Compensation in a Personal Injury Claim

Maryland law outlines the types of compensation (known as “damages”) an injured person may obtain through a personal injury lawsuit.

A personal injury claim may seek economic damages, which is payment for quantifiable costs and losses. These include:

  • Medical expenses (past and future)
  • Lost wages (past and future, including any kind of pension loss)
  • Property damage, such as to a car or bicycle

A claim may also seek noneconomic damages, which is payment for:

  • Pain
  • Suffering
  • Inconvenience
  • Physical impairment
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of consortium
  • Other non-pecuniary (non-financial) injury

In many cases, our skilled attorneys are able to settle a claim outside of court through aggressive negotiations with insurers. However, our legal team is always ready and willing to present a strong case in court when an insurer cannot be persuaded to do the right thing.

As former prosecutors, we know how to take on tough personal injury cases, which has proven to be of great benefit to our clients.

Our firm represents injured people in these cases:

Truck Accidents in anne arundel countyTruck Accidents Maryland highways are heavily travelled by large commercial trucks. These huge, heavy vehicles pose a serious risk to other drivers and passengers, particularly if the driver is tired, intoxicated, aggressive, or operating a semi-truck in any other unsafe manner. These accidents often lead to severe injury, permanent disability or death. Every case is different, and various factors must be evaluated, including any truck system failure, part failure, violations of federal trucking regulations, and others. The settlement in such a case should reflect all the damages suffered by a victim, including the pain and suffering and loss of quality of life associated with the injuries.

Pedestrian and Bicycle AccidentsPedestrian and Bicycle Accidents The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reports that 108 pedestrians died in Maryland vehicle accidents in 2013, the latest year for complete statistics, and six bicyclists lost their lives. Distracted drivers, drunk drivers, and those who speed or violate the rules of the road may injure or kill other road users. Our firm gets involved in these cases with the goal of seeking justice. The negligent driver must be held accountable. We are zealous in protecting the rights of our clients. Call us for help.

Motorcycle Accident lawyersMotorcycle Accidents A motorcycle accident often leads to tragedy. Motorcyclists who are thrown onto the roadway are subject to extreme physical harm, even when wearing a helmet. Head and brain injuries, crushed limbs, broken bones, internal injuries and severe abrasions are common injuries to riders who have been struck by another vehicle. Statistically, the majority of motorcycle accidents are caused by vehicle drivers – not the motorcycle rider. Vehicle operators that impact a motorcycle may be distracted by talking or texting on a cell phone, daydreaming, speeding or simply failing to pay attention to the road ahead. An innocent person pays the price, with a life forever changed. Reach out to our firm at once for help – justice must be pursued, and we are unrelenting in demanding fair compensation for our clients. Call now.

Drunk Driving Accident law firmDrunk Driving Accidents A driver who takes to the road under the influence of alcohol is committing a criminal act. The impact of alcohol leaves the driver unable to safely control a vehicle. Wrong way driving, swerving, sudden lane changes, running red lights and swerving into oncoming traffic can lead to a deadly car accident. Drunk drivers are responsible for many tragic deaths and severe injuries to innocent people. At Jimeno & Gray, P.A., we are prepared to help you seek justice if you or a loved one was injured in an accident caused by an impaired motorist.

Workers' Compensation lawyersWorkers' Compensation Employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to pay for employees who are injured on the job, or while performing work duties. The system allows the injured person to be paid a portion of their wages, and to get medical treatment for the injuries. While this sounds positive, it can be incredibly difficult to get a claim paid quickly and fairly and employers may try to deny a valid claim. Let us evaluate your case. Our goal is to help you resolve any legal or financial issues related to workers’ comp benefits, denied claims, or third party claims. We work hard for our clients, and we are advocates for injured workers in the areas of Annapolis, Glen Burnie, and Howard County, MD. Call now.

Medical Malpractice lawyersMedical Malpractice We place a great deal of trust in medical professionals, from our family doctor to surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses and all others in the profession. In most cases, this trust is well-placed. There are cases, however, in which a medical professional is negligent, and the patient is left in a worsened condition or dies. Birth injuries, a failure to diagnose, delayed diagnosis, medication error, or surgical error are all issues that must be addressed with the assistance of an attorney. Talk to us, and let us help you with information about how to file a claim and what to expect. Getting a malpractice claim paid is one of the most difficult of all personal injury cases. Our years in practice and the experience as prosecutors gives us the legal skills you want on your side. Call now.
