Car accidents occur every day in metropolitan Washington, D.C., 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.

Drivers on the streets, roads and highways of Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. are making mistakes behind the wheel every day, causing car accidents and injuries.
While the reasons may vary, the negligent operation of a motor vehicle that causes injuries is a legal cause of action.
A personal injury lawsuit is based on the law of negligence. A car operator is negligent if he or she fails to operate a car 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).
Car 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 car 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 higher for cases involving more severe injuries and longer recovery times.
