After a car accident in Columbia, MD, the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow can help you pursue financial compensation from the at-fault driver.

A member of our car accident recovery team is ready to help you resolve your case as soon as possible. The sooner we get started, the more time we can fully investigate and build your case. Early involvement also means we have plenty of time to ensure compliance with Maryland’s personal injury statute of limitations.
Building Your Columbia Car Accident Case
When our team builds your case, we include the car accident report along with additional documentation. It helps us establish the date that determines your filing deadline and removes the risk of filing too late.
Get a Copy of Your Car Accident Report
Your car accident report is one of the tools we use to prove your right to compensation from the at-fault driver. It gives us:
- Important contact information
- Police notes and diagrams
- Vehicle identification information
- Potential causes and contributing factors
- Traffic violations, tickets, or citations
Your car accident report will also make a note of each vehicle’s movements, any possible driver distractions, drug or alcohol involvement, and points of impact on each vehicle. It may also contain police-generated photos. We use the information from your car accident report to start building your compensation case.
Our Team is On the Case
As soon as it is ready, our team will order and review the car accident report immediately. Our goal is to ensure your evidence file is complete and your right to compensation is clear.

Financial Damages After a Car Accident
The financial damages Maryland Code Courts and Judicial Proceedings §11-109 allows you to recoup after a car accident include medical care, equipment, devices, and in-home aid until you recover. Your medical team can help you determine the cost of your current and future medical care. In addition, you can also recover compensation for the following injury-related damages:
- Current and future loss of income
- Vehicle repair or replacement costs
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
- Physical impairment or disfigurement
- Mental and emotional anguish
The Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow can do more than help you assess the at-fault driver’s financial liability. We can also help you understand Maryland’s mandatory liability limits. If necessary, we will help you get compensation from your insurer if the at-fault driver did not have enough insurance to cover your expenses and losses.
Document Your Recoverable Damages
Proving the cause of your accident helps establish the at-fault driver’s responsibility to compensate you. Proving the value of your injuries and related expenses establishes the amount of financial recovery they may owe you. To ensure the value we assign to your car accident claim is accurate, our team will request various documents and receipts. These may include:
- Employment and salary history records
- Medical and counseling records and bills
- Vehicle repair or replacement estimates
- Witness observations and statements
- Available photos and video footage
The car accident lawyers on our team will help you gather these and other items to prove the cost of your financial expenses and losses. While we help you build your case, we also ensure you have access to the medical care and support your injuries require. We offer referrals to reliable and highly qualified medical providers in Columbia, including those we trust to treat our family members.

Know How Much Time You Have to File Your Lawsuit
If you or someone you love was injured in a car accident, Maryland Courts and Judicial Procedures Code §5-101 generally gives you three years to file a personal injury lawsuit. If a family member does not survive the accident, Maryland Courts and Judicial Procedures Code §3-904 gives you the same general amount of time to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
Understanding and complying with the statute of limitations is critical because of the risks associated with its expiration. If the filing deadline expires, you might not be able to file your lawsuit at all. Even if you do successfully file your lawsuit, it is likely to be dismissed without being heard.
