Attorney Adam M. Smallow was proud to represent a Baltimore County client at a recent trial that
resulted in a very successful verdict. Our client was thrilled at the
outcome and it was another reminder to the corrupt insurance companies that the
Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow will fight as hard as possible to achieve justice for their injured clients.
Most Maryland insurance companies refuse to engage in fair and meaningful
settlement discussions after their negligent drivers cause collisions
that injure other motorists or pedestrians. These unfair practices will
not change anytime soon due to the unfavorable personal injury laws in
this state. Therefore, this climate underscores the need for a compassionate
and aggressive law firm to guide injured clients through the minefield
of a personal injury claim.
Earlier this year, Adam M. Smallow was retained by a client who was injured
when another driver changed lanes without looking and stuck the side of
his vehicle. In fact, the impact was so forceful that it drove our client
into the lane to his left that, fortunately, was an unoccupied center
median strip. Moreover, he sustained heavy damage to the right front side
of his vehicle.
As so often happens, the negligent driver lied to his insurance company
and blamed the collision on our client. However, photographs taken at
the scene of the collision revealed the truth: the negligent driver's
vehicle came to rest in our client's original lane of travel. So anyone
with common sense could see that it was the other driver who turned into
our client's lane...BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE HIS CAR ENDED UP AFTER
However, most insurance companies do not incorporate anything even close
to common sense in their claims process. Instead, they do whatever they
can to avoid the fair evaluation of claims. In this case, Maryland has
a state-run insurance company that operates about as poorly as any insurance
company out there. The adjuster denied our client's claim and we were
left with no choice but to file a lawsuit in the Baltimore County District Court.
At trial, Attorney Smallow used the photographs as the key evidence to
prove that the negligent driver did indeed turn into his client's
lane and cause the collision. The Judge was convinced and found for the
Plaintiff (our client) at the end of the trial. The verdict was in the
amount of $13,000, which was very high in light of the fact that our client
did not go to the hospital and his medical bills were only $2,500.
While this was not a big case for our firm compared to some of the life-altering
injuries we see on a weekly basis...it was our client's case and that is what matters most. The Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow fights for every single one of our
clients no matter the type of
We will always go the distance for our clients when the insurance companies
attempt to obstruct the personal injury claims process.
