Rockville Personal Injury Lawyers - Serving All of Maryland and the District of Columbia

An injury-producing accident can be a life changing experience. One is faced with pain, suffering, anguish, medical treatment, medical bills, and lost wages, all while dealing with the pressure and stress of navigating the complexities of a personal injury claim. A family is also affected by their loved-one’s injuries. Insurance companies are naturally looking after their own interests and seek to mitigate their exposure. If you or someone you know has been in an accident, seek legal counsel as soon as possible from an attorney who understands what you are going through and who is committed to protecting and fighting for your rights. At Spigelman & Cecere, our personal injury lawyers are here to take the reins and handle the myriad matters surrounding your claim so that you can focus on healing and recovering.

While you treat and recuperate from your injuries, our firm will gather the necessary information needed to properly investigate and assess your accident, and will directly handle communication with any insurance company or other entity involved. Insurance companies will invariably lowball their offers for your injuries and losses if you don’t have an experienced lawyer on your side. Our effective, professional, and aggressive stance will ensure that your claim will receive the just compensation you deserve.

Personal Injury

Personal injury claims cover a wide variety of accidents including car accidents, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, slip and falls, dog bites, wrongful death and more. If you were in an accident, you will want to recover compensation for injuries sustained due to the negligence of the person or entity responsible for causing your accident. In Maryland and Washington DC, you generally have three (3) years to file a personal injury lawsuit based on another’s negligence (there are some exceptions). Negligence is the failure to exercise reasonable care under the existing circumstances. The burden of proving negligence rests on the injured person. There can be a myriad of issues and defenses in a personal injury claim that are best handled by an experienced attorney. If you have suffered injury because of another’s negligence, contact the Rockville personal injury attorneys at Spigelman & Cecere, LLC as soon as possible to preserve your claim and protect your rights.

Premises Liability

Business and private property owners owe a duty of reasonable care to people lawfully using their property. If a business or private property owner knows or should know of a hazardous condition existing on their property and fails to take reasonable steps to correct or warn of that condition, they may be responsible for an injury to a person lawfully using the property that was caused by the hazardous condition. Slip and falls, trip and falls, faulty construction or faulty maintenance accidents, swimming pool accidents, and injuries arising from criminal acts caused by a breach in security are all examples of premises liability claims. Premises liability claims can be very difficult to prove depending on the circumstances. The contributory negligence defense will completely bar recovery if the injured person’s fault played any role in causing his/her injuries. If you are injured as a result of a premises owner’s negligence, you owe it to yourself to have an experienced attorney by your side to make sure that you are treated fairly and justly and that you are rightfully compensated for injuries caused by the premises owner’s negligence. Contact a premises liability attorney at Spigelman & Cecere, LLC in Rockville, MD as soon as possible following an accident so that your rights are protected by an experienced attorney.

Car Accidents

Car accidents can create all kinds of issues and problems for those involved. If you caused a car accident, you need to report it to your automobile insurance company. If you are the injured victim of someone else’s negligence in causing a car accident, you need to call the experienced car accident attorneys at Spigelman & Cecere, LLC in Rockville Maryland as soon as possible so that we can protect and fight for your rights. You will be faced with treating for your injuries, and dealing with increasing medical bills, auto damage and repair costs, lost wages and other issues. You do not need to go it alone. Call us at (301) 948-6363.

Bicycle Accidents

Bicycle accidents can lead to devastating injuries and even death. They are often caused by the inattention of a motor vehicle operator. The ever-increasing use of bicycles on the public roads, either for transportation or recreation, has led to the implementation of road markings and traffic laws meant to protect cyclists and permit them equal roadway rights and duties as motor vehicle drivers. Despite this, accidents can still occur due to careless, distracted and intoxicated motor vehicle drivers. As a bicyclist, take every precaution you can to protect yourself such as wearing a helmet, having the proper lights and reflectors on your bike, wearing proper clothing for the time of day and obeying the traffic laws. If you have been injured by a motor vehicle while riding your bike, contact our experienced bicycle accident attorneys at Spigelman & Cecere, LLC as soon as possible.

Trucking Accidents

An estimated 500,000 trucking accidents have been occurring every year in the U.S. Most truck drivers are professionals and practice safe driving. However, accidents often occur due to driver fatigue, alcohol/drug use, speeding, faulty truck maintenance and distraction/inattention, among other things. The results of a trucking accident can be devastating. Our trucking accident attorneys at Spigelman & Cecere, LLC in Rockville, Maryland have been handling trucking accidents claims for over 30 years. We are here to protect your rights and get the best results possible for your claim.

Motorcycle Accidents

Unlike automobiles, motorcycle operators are not encased by advanced, high-strength steel, shock-absorbing plastics, airbags and other material designed to absorb crashes and protect occupants. Also, many automobile and truck drivers simply do not see motorcycles due to inattention, distraction and other various reasons. Thus, motorcycle accidents can result in serious and debilitating injuries or even death. If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident while riding a motorcycle, contact the motorcycle accident lawyers at Spigelman & Cecere, LLC attorneys in Rockville, Maryland as soon as possible to help you fight for your rights.

Pedestrian Accidents

Needless to say, being struck by an automobile while crossing the street can result in devastating consequences. Drivers are often more concerned with negotiating traffic, beating a light, or using their cell phones and fail to see a pedestrian who usually has the right of way. If you or a loved one has been struck by a motor vehicle while crossing the road, you need an experienced pedestrian accident attorney to hep recover the compensation that may be entitled for damages such as pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, disfigurement, or even wrongful death. Contact Spigelman & Cecere, LLC attorneys in Rockville, Maryland as soon as possible to give you the experienced representation you need.

Wrongful Death

Dealing with the loss of a loved one is always difficult but when that loss is suddenly and unexpectedly caused by the negligence of another you need an experienced, compassionate and aggressive wrongful death attorney to assist with the complexities involved in protecting the rights of the deceased loved one’s family. Our experienced attorneys will help with issues involving the investigation of the death-causing incident, dealing with police and other involved authorities, dealing with any outstanding medical bills, the process of opening of an estate to bring the wrongful death/survival claim, and other matters so that the surviving loved ones can concentrate on healing from the grief and pain of their loss. Contact us to find out more about your rights and the compensation you may be entitled.

Dog Attacks/Bites

The District of Columbia and Maryland have laws protecting the rights of those injured by dog bite/attacks. If you are injured as a result of a dog bite or attack, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible and report the incident to your local animal control/animal services authorities. You should then contact the dog bite attorneys at Spigelman & Cecere, LLC as soon as possible to protect your rights and to let us secure you the just compensation you deserve.

Catastrophic Injury

Negligently caused accidents can result in serious, debilitating and permanent injuries that have a significant impact on the injured person’s life. If you or a loved one has suffered such an injury as a result of another’s negligent or intentional acts, contact the Rockville personal injury lawyers at Spigelman & Cecere, LLC as soon as possible so that we can help you and your loved ones obtain the best possible compensation for tragic injuries.
