Motor vehicle accidents occur every day, usually because of driver error. For example, over 90 percent of crashes in Maryland are caused by driver error, according to the Maryland Department of Transportation.
It’s well known that motor vehicle collisions injure people, sometimes seriously or even fatally. The law holds careless drivers accountable, and allows injured drivers, passengers, bicyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians full and fair compensation for their medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.

Motor vehicle accidents occur in a variety of ways. The personal injury attorneys at Bulman, Dunie, Burke & Feld, CHTD, handle all types of motor vehicle accident cases, including:
A personal injury lawsuit is based on the law of negligence. A motor vehicle operator is negligent if he or she fails to operate a vehicle in a reasonably safe manner under the circumstances, and causes an accident that injures others (driver or passenger in another car, a bicyclist, a motorcyclist, or a pedestrian).
Motor vehicle accidents cause a wide range of injuries, from catastrophic (paralysis, burns, loss of limb, severe fractures) to minor sprains and strains (whiplash and soft tissue injuries).
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by someone else, you are entitled to money for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering resulting from the accident. While each personal injury case is unique, the monetary value is generally higher for cases involving more severe injuries and longer recovery times.
Each motor vehicle accident is unique. The personal injury attorneys at Bulman, Dunie, Burke & Feld, CHTD, know how to uncover all the facts related to liability. For example, motor vehicle accidents involving a tractor-trailer require an understanding of trucking regulations, and how to investigate the accident, such as seeking out the trucking log and reconstructing how the accident occurred. Rig operators often drive too fast, or fail to keep a proper lookout for passing vehicles. Rig owners can fail to property maintain brakes, or overload or improperly load the trailer.
Motor vehicle accidents involving motorcyclists or bicyclists usually involve a driver’s inattention to the location of the motorcyclist or bicyclist, or failing to yield the right of way at intersections.
Our motor vehicle accident attorneys have a long history of handling these types of cases, and know what to look for when building a strong legal case of liability.
