Being seriously injured can be a very traumatic experience. Not only do you have to experience physical pain and suffering, but there are many other stressful factors you might be dealing with—difficulty paying medical bills, the hardship of having to spend time away from work or possibly even dealing with a new disability. Beyond all of these obstacles, some individuals also have to deal with uncooperative insurance companies that do not want to pay innocent accident victims the money they need to cover their costs. When someone is injured due to the fault of another individual or entity, he or she should not be forced to foot the bill of that injury—yet, sadly, many will still have to put up a fight for fair compensation in such situations.
If you are currently facing this problem in the Westminster, Maryland area, know that are not alone. At The Law Office of John R. Discavage, P.A., we have a knowledgeable Westminster personal injury attorney who can stand by your side and serve as an aggressive legal advocate on your behalf.
Attorney John Discavage, a former Maryland Assistant State Attorney, knows the best tactics for dealing with stubborn insurance companies and for negotiating fair claim settlements. If the insurance company or the party at fault refuses to negotiate, our lawyer can even take cases to court.
Not sure if we can help you? Odds are that we can, as our law office takes on virtually all types of personal injury cases. We assist individuals who have received various types of injuries as a result of others' negligence. Some of the types of injuries our clients might experience include whiplash, head trauma, back injuries and spinal cord injuries, severe burns, amputations and much more. We even represent family members whose loved ones died from their accidents. For these individuals, filing wrongful death claims or lawsuits can help them obtain compensation for lost income that the individual would have provided, funeral expenses, lost companionship and much more.
Some of our clients are motor vehicle accident victims, such as those injured in car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents. Others are victims of accidents related to premises liability. These are accidents that occur when the individual is on a property that has not been made safe for the public. In these cases, liability generally falls on the property owner if that individual (or one of his or her employees) acted negligently by failing to properly address safety issues. By calling our office, you can learn more about the many different types of injury victims we represent.
