Atkinson Law. We are family, and we take your injury personally.
Personal injury law is designed to protect you and your property from someone else's act of negligence or failure to act in an appropriate manner. Also known as “tort law,” personal injury law covers civil cases and usually requires the negligent party to pay compensation to the plaintiff. Personal injury can include automobile accidents, acts of negligence, falls on another person's property, premises liability, or negligent security. Atkinson Law takes personal injury personally. We will fight your case with diligence and skill to get you the solution you deserve.
Auto accidents - Thousands of injuries result from auto accidents every year. In fact, there were nearly 15,000 total auto accidents in Maryland in 2017, and about 44 percent of them resulted in injury to someone in Baltimore, Cecil and Harford Counties. If you or a family member have been injured in an auto accident, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. If you or someone in your family was a driver or passenger in one of the 1,026 car crashes in Harford County or one of the more than 5,000 crashes in Baltimore County, you can pursue a personal injury case if you suffered any hardship as a result of the accident. Contact Atkinson Law to learn the possibilities.
Premises Liability – If you are injured on someone else's property, you may be able to seek compensation from the property owner. In Harford, Cecil and Baltimore Counties, the Maryland premises liability law will dictate how you proceed. Atkinson Law knows Maryland law and statutes. Our family has lived and worked in Maryland for more than 15 years and we have seen the obstacles clients have faced in personal injury cases. We will prepare for them. Every premises liability case is different and there is no “one size fits all.” We will work with you to determine both your classification of status – whether you were an invited guest, an invited licensee, a bare licensee or a trespasser – and whether or not the property owner met his obligation to provide a safe environment. The many nuances of a personal injury case are best addressed with lawyers who know the locale and the statutes. If we don't think you have a case, we will honestly tell you that. If we do, we will build one that is reasonable and realistic.
Falls – If you fall due to perhaps an icy sidewalk or a wet floor or a crooked step, you may be able to collect some benefits if you are injured as a result of the fall. Sometimes you can negotiate payment of your medical bills with the proprietor of the building or business, but sometimes you need help navigating the claims. We've got your back. Atkinson Law will advocate for our clients and try to settle out of court, but if need be, we are experienced and successful in litigating for personal injury cases.
Negligence – If you're a property owner in Harford or Baltimore County, there are certain duties required in maintaining your property under Maryland law. Atkinson Law is well versed in these duties and the conditions for them. Make sure you're up to date on your requirements as a property owner. Accidents happen. We won't let you take the blame. Call Atkinson Law now for a consultation on property safety and duties that can prevent unnecessary personal injury claims.
