If you or someone you love were injured in a truck accident, we can help you get compensation for your injuries, lost wages, and other expenses. We also help you get compensation for your pain and suffering, including any physical and emotional trauma caused by the accident.
At the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow, our truck accident attorney in College Park, MD will help you fight for these damages by building a compelling case file. We compile evidence that identifies the at-fault party and helps prove the value of your damages. We also work hard to guide the at-fault party’s insurance company toward a financial settlement.
Know Where to Assign Financial Liability for Your Accident
Knowing where to seek financial compensation after a truck accident can be confusing, especially if there can be more than one at-fault party. As your truck accident attorney, we can help you decide if the responsible party is:
- The truck driver
- Their employer
- The truck’s manufacturer
- A component manufacturer
- A combination of these
Once we know who is responsible for your accident, we know where to assign liability and who to pursue for financial compensation.
Know What Your Truck Accident Case Is Worth
Recovering from a truck accident is often physically, emotionally, and financially taxing. There can be long periods of recovery, leading to mounds of paperwork and expenses. Our personal injury team can help you recover the following damages from the at-fault party:
- Current and future medical bills
- Loss of income when your injuries prevent you from returning to work
- Lasting physical disabilities and impairments, such as permanent scarring
- Pain and suffering, including physical and emotional trauma
If your family lost one of its members in a truck accident, we can also hold the at-fault party accountable for paying their funeral and burial expenses. You might even be entitled to recover certain losses, including the loss of companionship, counsel, consortium, and future earnings.

Prove Your Right to Financial Compensation
To identify which at-fault party to pursue in your truck accident case, our team starts by identifying the negligence that led to the accident in the first place.
We establish negligence by proving the at-fault party:
- Owed you a duty of care
- Breached their duty
- Caused your physical injuries
- Led to your financial damages
To accomplish this, we will collect evidence such as your crash report, witness statements, photos of your injuries, and photos of the accident scene. We also try to locate and interview witnesses who support your version of what caused the accident.
Prove the Value of Your Financial Compensation
Of course, proving the cause of your truck accident is only the start of your case file. The team at the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow also works hard to prove the value of any recoverable damages we request. This means collecting additional evidence on your behalf, which may include:
- Medical records
- Medical bills
- Written medical prognosis
- Employment records
- Injury photos
Our truck accident attorney will combine evidence of cause and evidence of cost into one case file, organize it, and present it to the at-fault party and their insurance company. In many cases, this evidence results in a settlement offer. If it does, we will review all offers with you — after all, the final decision is yours to make. If you do not receive a settlement offer, or the offer is too low, we are fully prepared to take your case to court and present your evidence at trial.
Do Not Delay Filing Your Truck Accident Case
In the state of Maryland, the process of seeking financial compensation via a personal injury lawsuit has a strict deadline. If this deadline expires, the state will not allow you to file and the at-fault party can never be compelled to compensate you.
The filing deadline after a truck accident is:
- Generally three years for a personal injury lawsuit, according to Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 5-101
- Generally three years for a wrongful death lawsuit, according to Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-904
It is in your best interest to get a truck accident attorney involved in your case right away. Doing so allows our team to talk to witnesses while their memories are still vivid, investigate the accident scene before evidence is removed or destroyed, and canvass the area for smartphone, dash cam, and surveillance photos and videos.
