Are you wondering whether we can handle your personal injury case? Chances are that we can, as we handle just about all types of personal injury cases. Many of our clients come to us after being injured in accidents involving vehicles, such as trucks, cars and motorcycles. Whiplash and other soft tissue injuries commonly result from these types of accidents, though there are also many others that can occur, including broken bones, head trauma, brain injuries and internal organ damage. Sometimes motor vehicle accidents can also lead to injury of pedestrians.
We also handle premises liability cases, which occurs when a property owners fail to keep his or her premises free of safety issues that are likely to cause injuries. For example, a shopper might be injured due to criminal activity that was made more likely because of poor security. Or, the property owner might have failed to keep walkways cleared, with that failure leading to a slip and fall accident.
Hagerstown, which is the county seat of Washington County, Maryland, has served as an important transportation hub throughout its history. The city, founded in 1762, was located at the Warrior Trading Path's crossroads, according to the city's website. This was the name for the Eastern Native American North/South Trading Route. That route is now Route 11 and or Route 40 (or the First National Road). With the railroad being introduced to the area in the 1830s, the community experienced growth. It became known as "Hub City" since, when mapped out, the railroad lines going into the city looked much like a wagon wheel's spokes. The railroad industry greatly stimulated Hagerstown's economy into the 20th Century. Today, the city is considered a gateway into the Baltimore and Washington D.C. area and is situated where two significant interstates meet (the I-70 and I-81) meet.
In 2011, Hagerstown had an estimated population of 39,890, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The city's average income per person is $20,684 and the median household income of $36,806. Hagerstown is the state of Maryland's sixth largest city.
