Baltimore Car Accident Lawyers

Annapolis Auto Accident Injury Attorneys

If you are involved in an accident, you need the best attorney you can get — immediately. Insurance companies have teams of lawyers at their disposal. You need the best attorney who is ready, prepared and experienced enough to protect your rights and get you the best possible outcome.

At Bates & Garcia, P.C., our Baltimore car accident attorneys have decades of experience handling personal injury cases. Our lawyers take a team approach, leveraging our extensive knowledge and experience when litigating car accident claims. We are committed to helping you obtain the best possible outcome.

Our extensive personal injury practice extends beyond car accident cases. We use all of our resources and contacts to ensure that you receive the biggest verdict possible. We understand that insurance companies have billions in assets and teams of lawyers. We won't back down. We fight to ensure our clients are compensated fairly for their pain and suffering. Our law practice includes:

  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Wrongful death

Maximum Coverage

Depending on the facts and circumstances of your accident, we will pursue the following:

  • Personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. This is an optional coverage that pays benefits to the injured without regard to who caused the accident. Your PIP coverage would provide up to $10,000 for missed work and medical bills.
  • Underinsured driver coverage. This coverage is part of your own insurance policy. It provides benefits if a negligent driver's coverage is less than your damages.
  • Uninsured driver coverage. This coverage is part of your own policy. It provides benefits if the negligent driver does not have insurance.
  • Third-party coverage. When negligent drivers cause accidents in the scope of their employment, you may be able to pursue benefits from the employer's policy.

Expert Testimony

Our lawyers have 35 years of combined experience handling automobile accident cases. We have a long history of networking with high-caliber industry professionals, including medical, financial, engineering and accident reconstruction specialists, who can review the facts of your accident to determine and prove liability. Their testimony can also demonstrate the severe nature of your injuries and financial needs.

Additionally, we conduct thorough investigations into your accident. We will review witness statements, photos, police reports, medical records and other documentation to help support your claim. Our experience includes obtaining and preserving trucking records, such as driving logs and maintenance records, to help prove liability.

We are dedicated to helping those injured as the result of negligence. We accept cases based on clients' needs, not on the level of injury. We handle cases involving injuries ranging from soft tissue and whiplash to catastrophic injuries, including:

  • Quadriplegia
  • Paraplegia
  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Spine injuries
