If you are injured or your loved one is killed in a car or truck accident, collecting damages from the responsible party should not be left to chance. You deserve a lawyer with the time, experience, and dedication to investigate your case fully and get you the compensation you deserve.
Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable
Clark & Steinhorn, LLC is a Laurel, Maryland law office located near the border of Prince Georges, Montgomery and Anne Arudnel counties near I-95 and I-295. Our attorneys take on a limited number of cases in order to fully devote our time and energy to those cases.
It is impossible to control the actions of other drivers, but you can lessen the likelihood of a car crash by remaining alert and observing traffic laws. Wear your seatbelt as the number one cause of car and truck accident deaths is the failure to wear safety belts!
The Maryland State Highway Administration urges drivers to comply with Maryland traffic laws, avoid aggressive driving behavior, and give the road their full attention.
Safe driving behavior is especially important in dangerous conditions such as:
- Bad weather
- Limited visibility due to nighttime or weather conditions
- Heavy and congested traffic areas like the Beltway
If you drive safely, you may not avoid all accidents, but you may avoid causing one.
At Clark & Steinhorn, we perform a detailed investigation of each traffic accident case. We carefully review the evidence, interview the possible witnesses, and go to the scene to ensure the best results in settlement or trial and to obtain the maximum recovery for you and your loved ones.
Common Truck Accident Causes
Tractor-trailer and semi truck accidents can cause some of the deadliest collisions and traffic hazards, and can happen for any number of reasons, including:
- Road conditions
- Driver error
- Excessive speed
- Vehicle failure
- Impairment due to drugs or alcohol
Trucking companies bear the heightened responsibility of protecting drivers on the road from dangerous tractor-trailer accidents. It is the company's responsibility to keep both the driver of the truck and other drivers safe.
Companies can fail by not enforcing safety measures and regulations such as:
- Restrictions on driving hours
- Driver background checks
- Drug testing
- Regular vehicle maintenance
When we take your case, you benefit from our full attention, as well as Mr. Clark's 28 years and Mr. Steinhorn's 24 years of experience as trial lawyers. Your car or truck accident case will never be passed off to an inexperienced or disinterested associate attorney. Mr. Clark and Mr. Steinhorn handle every case personally.
