General Negligence Attorneys in Baltimore
Pursuing Negligence Claims with Poise
All of us have a duty under the law to behave reasonably and to conduct ourselves in a way that does not harm others. The failure to behave reasonably in any capacity is negligence. If your negligence causes someone else harm, they have the right to pursue legal action against you.
Examples of negligent accidents include:
- A drunk driver who causes a car accident
- A construction company that fails to construct a safe building
- A drug manufacturer that fails to properly test products
- A pharmacist who gives a patient the wrong dose
- A landlord whose failure to provide adequate security leads to a criminal injuring a tenant
Of course, all of these situations are extremely nuanced. In many cases, the at-fault party is unclear. The bottom line is that if you have been injured by no fault of your own, you should seek legal action – and the assistance of a knowledgeable negligence attorney in Baltimore.
At Ashcraft & Gerel, we are extremely well-versed in the complex laws governing negligence claims. We can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.
Determining the Negligent Party
In any negligence case, the most important first step is to determine fault – which can be easier said than done. At first glance, you might suspect one party was responsible when in fact it was another party.
For example, if you were injured in an unsafe building, was it actually the construction company’s fault? Or is the building’s owner to blame for failing to perform proper building maintenance? Moreover, the blame might lie with the construction supplier, who provided unsafe or defective materials when the building was constructed.
As another example, a drug manufacturer might be to blame for harmful side effects of a drug you took – or it might be the fault of the doctor who prescribed you the drug.
At Ashcraft & Gerel, we know how to properly and thoroughly investigate negligence claims and determine who should actually be held accountable for your injuries.
Our attorneys will:
- Interview potential witnesses
- Conduct our own investigation into the incident
- Consult with other experts as needed
- Work quickly to preserve evidence
