If someone else’s wrongful or reckless behavior caused harm to you or a loved one, the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow could help you seek compensation. Whether you were in a car accident on Belair Road, suffered a slip and fall at Safeway, or sustained a sports injury at Soukup Arena, our Perry Hall personal injury attorneys can help you pursue the awards you need to pay for medical treatment and other damages.
What Is a Personal Injury?
A personal injury occurs when someone suffers financial losses, physical injury, and emotional and mental harm because of another person’s negligent, reckless, or wrongful actions. Common causes of personal injury include:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Boating accidents
- Slip and falls
- Workplace injuries
- Dog bites
- Pedestrian accidents
Attorney Adam M. Swallow and the MD Accident Law team can fight for you when you suffer a personal injury in Perry Hall. That way, you worry about recovering from your injury while we build your case. We want your health, not legal battles, to be your primary concern.
If you have not already seen a doctor regarding your injury, do so immediately. You do not want the insurance company to deny your claim because you allowed your injuries to worsen or delayed receiving care. If you need help finding a medical provider, we could recommend qualified professionals who our staff and their families would entrust with their care.
Maryland Wrongful Death Cases
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that unintentional injuries are the fourth-leading cause of death nationwide and the leading cause for children and teens. According to Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-901, you qualify for a wrongful death claim if your loved one died from an injury caused by “an act, neglect, or default including a felonious act” that would have entitled them to recover damages had they lived.

You Deserve Compensation for Your Personal Injury
Did someone else’s negligence cause an injury that sent you to the emergency department for treatment? If so, you deserve compensation for your medical care, pain and suffering, and other accident-related losses.
Our Perry Hall personal injury lawyers can help you recover these damages in an insurance settlement or jury verdict.
Economic damages include out-of-pocket expenses, such as:
- Ambulance fees
- Doctor and hospital bills
- Medical procedures and follow-up care
- Prescription drugs, medical devices, and medical equipment
- Physical and cognitive therapy
- Lost income and loss of future earning capacity
- Vehicle and personal property damages
- The value of household services you cannot perform because of your injury (transportation, cleaning, child care, etc.)
- A deceased loved one’s medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, and lost financial contributions
When considering a settlement offer, make sure you understand the scope of your damages. Unfortunately, if you sign an agreement with the insurance company for less than you need, you cannot take further action for additional compensation. However, our lawyers can assist you with evaluating your current and future losses.
Noneconomic damages provide monetary awards for intangible losses. You may qualify for this type of compensation if your accident and injuries caused you to suffer:
- Anxiety, depression, fear, or stress
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of mobility or paralysis
- Loss of limb
- Scarring or disfigurement
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of a deceased loved one’s marital, parental, or filial care
Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 11-108 caps the amount you can recover for noneconomic damages for personal injury and wrongful death. The state sets the cap based on your cause of injury and when it occurred. Again, our lawyers can determine the maximum amount available to you.

Why Choose the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow?
You are more than just a case to the MD Accident Law team. Instead, you are a person with real worries and concerns. Thus, we value you, understand your situation, and want to help you get justice. We aim to secure the money you need as efficiently and swiftly as possible.
We Will Build and File Your Claim
To win your case, we must prove another party is liable for your injuries. Therefore, we will collect case evidence and submit proof of negligence to the insurance company along with a demand letter outlining your losses. In addition, we will manage case paperwork, track deadlines, and enlist expert help when needed.
If we must take your case to court, we will adhere to the statute of limitations. You have three years to pursue compensation for most personal injuries (Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 5-101) and wrongful death cases (Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-904). So, do not wait too long to get started.
We Will Deal With the Insurance Company
Once you hire a lawyer, the insurance company should communicate with your legal counsel, not you directly. So, our team will handle phone calls, emails, and meetings with insurance agents and opposing counsel. We will protect your rights, fight for you during negotiations, and ensure the insurance company does not have an opportunity to record you or use your words against you.
Our Team Is Always Available
Our team will take your calls and answer your questions 24/7. In addition, we will give you a unique phone number for round-the-clock text communications.
We Only Get Paid if We Win Your Case
We have a no-win, no-fee pay structure. Therefore, we charge you nothing upfront or out-of-pocket and do not collect payment unless we secure compensation for you. In addition, we will never impose surprise fees or nickel-and-dime you by the hour.
