Motor vehicle accidents are a common occurrence in Baltimore and across Baltimore County. Many crashes are completely avoidable, caused by drunk drivers or distracted drivers. Whatever the cause, car accidents are a major safety and economic issue for the Baltimore community.
The Baltimore Police Department offers information on accidents, and also provides information on filing a police report and on obtaining a police report. Maryland's Department of Motor Vehicles provides information on traffic and safety laws.
In an injury accident, it is crucial to get appropriate medical treatment, regardless of the financial cost.
As soon as possible, an injured person should contact their insurance company to find out medical treatment is covered under their insurance policy.
When an injury is serious or a death occurs, the next step is to find an experienced Baltimore personal injury attorney to start the financial recovery process by launching an insurance claim. Major injury or wrongful death claims are complicated and difficult to manage. Having a personal injury lawyer on board is a great relief to injured people, or to the family left behind when an accident proves fatal.
