Maryland Personal Injury Attorney Jonathan Carroll represented a client at trial who had delayed getting therapy following an accident because she was afraid of doctors. The insurance company lawyer tried to argue that this “gap” in treatment meant that Carroll’s client was not actually hurt in the accident. Carroll argued to the Court that everyone acts differently following an accident that and that the insurance company was trying make up specific “rules” for how every accident victim should behave following an accident. The Court agreed with Carroll and awarded his client most of her medical bills as well as an additional sum for pain and suffering. The Court’s award was several thousand dollars more than the insurance company’s pretrial offer.

Maryland Personal Injury Attorney, Jonathan Carroll, won a hard-fought case for his client who was injured after crashing into a disabled car on a busy highway. The disabled car was left behind by a drunk driver who previously crashed into a guardrail. Carroll argued that even if he was not in his car at the time of the accident, the fact that a drunk driver left his car sitting in the middle of a busy highway was negligence in and of itself. The insurance company for the drunk driver tried to argue that he was not responsible since he was not inside his car when the accident happened. The Court disagreed and sided with Carroll. The Court noted that the drunk driver was not only negligent in causing the accident, but also negligent in not moving his car out of the road. Carroll’s client was awarded all of his medical bills, lost wages, plus more than double that amount in pain and suffering.

Maryland personal injury attorney, Jonathan Carroll, fought hard at trial after his client had been sideswiped by another car that unlawfully merged into his lane. The at-fault driver tried to argue at court that our client was the one who unlawfully left his lane. Our client prevailed, because he had photographs of the scene that showed the at-fault driver in his lane. If you are involved in an accident, it is important to take as many photos at the accident scene as possible. If you have been in accident and have any questions, call the attorneys at Jezic and Moyse, LLC.
