Injured clients who visit CHASENBOSCOLO at our many locations are broken, angry, and tired of fighting. They’re ready to put their injury behind them, but it’s hard when they’ve been wronged by an individual, municipality, or corporation, and nobody seems to care.

For over 30 years, we’ve developed an extraordinary record as personal injury litigators, and we will stop at nothing to make sure victims of negligent accidents have an active voice in the courtroom. Our Maryland personal injury lawyers are advocates who are experts in helping victims negotiate fair settlements for the pain, suffering, medical bills, and loss of wages associated with their accident.

Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
If you’re wondering whether you’ll need a personal injury lawyer to handle your claim, here are common reasons why other injured accident victims have hired us over the years:
- Insurers deal with accidents every day. Lawyers deal with insurers each day. Accident victims have little exposure to either, making their experience much less valuable in court than an attorney who understands the tactics of the adjuster, insurance company, and their counsel.
- Unhappy with the insurer’s initial settlement offer? Without an attorney on your side, the next offer won’t be much higher.
- Did you know you’re able to collect compensation for personal items of value damaged in the accident? Your watch, laptop computer, diamond tennis bracelet, and family heirlooms can all be added to your claim. Compensation potential is everywhere in your accident; an attorney knows what to look for.
- Miss one piece of crucial evidence and your claim may be tossed out by the presiding judge. An attorney will include all information, photos, statements, reports, medical records, video, and anything else necessary to prove you’re entitled to compensation.
Filing a personal injury case with the court requires precision and even greater attention to detail to argue before a jury. Without a lawyer, you could miss filing deadlines you never knew existed.

What You Should Know About Personal Injury Claims
CHASENBOSCOLO takes pride in helping injured folks understand their injuries, learn the laws which are there to help them take action, and what myths may exist in personal injury law that swirl around the internet.
- Injuries are more than car accidents. While vehicle accidents are the most common types of personal injury claims, many other accidents are included in personal injury law. For example, slip and falls are becoming as dangerous as car accidents. If you’re contemplating hiring legal assistance, know that personal injury firms go beyond auto wrecks.
- Insurers aren’t broke, though they’ll have you believe otherwise. A phrase you’ll hear in many financial circles is “mitigating losses.” Your accident means the premiums you paid over five, ten, or 20 years are coming right back to you (and then some), making you a liability instead of an asset to an insurance company. No insurer wants to have liabilities, so they attempt to mitigate their losses by offering you a small settlement.
- Personal injuries are almost always contingency fee cases. If an attorney offers to take your injury case for a sizable retainer fee, you should reconsider. Compensation is structured with an attorney’s work bundled into your settlement.
- Damages sustained to your love life may be considered in your claim. If you and your spouse shared a deep passion for each other, but your accident put that passion in jeopardy or eliminated it completely, that loss can be added to your claim since it’s a benefit of marriage you may never experience again.
- The first tort claim dates back to the mid-1580s. Payment was demanded by members of one clan in the form of goods or money for wrongdoings committed by another clan.
- You could file a civil action if you were injured during another’s criminal activity. This is known as an intentional tort, meaning a personal injury was sustained during another’s commission of a crime. Hit-and-run accidents and vehicular manslaughter are prime examples.
