Maryland Personal Injury Lawyer

Passionate Advocates for Those Suffering Catastrophic Injuries

When you are involved in a collision while riding a motorcycle because the driver of a car failed to heed a red light or you suffer injury in a fatigue-related semi-truck accident because a commercial driver failed to get adequate sleep before climbing behind the wheel, every aspect of your life can change in an instant.  Most of us do not expect to be the victim of a motor vehicle accident, animal attack, fall from a scaffolding on a construction site or other traumatic event.  When these unanticipated incidents occur, they may have disruptive and even life-altering consequences.  Serious accidents and intentional wrongful acts like these may cause traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage, impairment of internal organs, broken bones, fractures or other severe debilitating injuries.

When the negligent, reckless or intentional actions of an individual, corporation or public entity causes an injury or a fatality, our experienced Maryland personal injury attorneys at The Law Offices of Gary H. Gerstenfield, P.C. may be able to pursue a personal injury or wrongful death claim against the wrongdoer.  Our personal injury lawyers engage in careful investigation of the facts, analysis of applicable laws, aggressive negotiations with insurance carriers and persuasive advocacy in court.  While insurance company adjusters may seem amicable, they may engage in tactics designed to deny, delay and minimize claims to protect an insurance company’s bottom line.

Our personal injury lawyers understand the tactics used by insurance companies to diminish the value of claims so we work aggressively to obtain the full measure of compensation for our clients.  Because our Silver Spring personal injury law firm is devoted entirely to litigation in both civil and criminal venues which means we have a thorough understanding of litigation and negotiation strategies, evidentiary and procedural rules, compelling courtroom presentation and effective factual investigations.

Protecting Injury Victims from Unscrupulous Insurance Company Tactics

When these types of tragic accidents or intentional harmful acts occur, the emotional stress, physical pain, debilitating injury and financial consequences can be overwhelming. Our Maryland personal injury lawyers have compassion for those whose lives have been disrupted and commitment to the principle of holding accountable those who cause serious injuries that can impair cognitive functioning, mobility, sensation and otherwise adversely impact an injury victim’s quality of life, ability to earn a living and even intimate relationships.

Although many personal injury lawsuits and wrongful death claims in Montgomery County, Prince George’s County and the surrounding areas of Maryland settle prior to trial, we know that insurance defense attorney’s assess the willingness of their adversaries to proceed to trial.  The personal injury attorneys at our centrally located Silver Springs law firm recognize that the way to obtain the best settlement for our clients is to conduct a thorough investigation as well as to employ accident reconstructionist, industry experts, medical providers and others with specialized knowledge so that we can build the most persuasive and compelling case for trial.

Seeking Maximum Reimbursement for Severe Accidents Caused by Careless and Inattentive Acts

We know that insurance companies use a multitude of strategies to mislead injury victims into compromising their personal injury claims, such as delaying settlements to create financial pressure to settle, seeking damaging recorded statements and even offering settlement for pennies on the dollar in exchange for a general release of all claims.  We work aggressively to neutralize such tactics so that we can obtain the full measure of damages, which may include some or all of the following:

  • Costs of hospitalization and medical bills
  • Property damage (i.e. vehicle repair costs)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Limitations on quality of life
  • Loss of companionship
  • Lost income
  • Impaired future earning capacity
  • Costs of burial/funeral (wrongful death)
  • Punitive damage
