A Maryland attorney experienced in handling serious injury and wrongful death cases can help to make sure you receive every dollar you are entitled to and deserve for the harm that was done to you. Make no mistake. In serious injury and wrongful death cases, who your lawyer is means everything.
How do we maximize the value of our clients' injury cases? By fighting for you, and with you, every step of the way. Our first goal is to get you a settlement quickly that fully compensates you for all of your economic losses and, more importantly, your pain and suffering. The insurance companies, of course, want to pay you nothing or next to nothing. How do we make insurance companies bend to our way of thinking on the appropriate compensation?
Again, getting an appropriate settlement without even filing a lawsuit will depend, in no small measure, on the reputation of your law firm. Your lawyer's ability to gather and present the necessary information to put your claim forward in the best possible light. These cases are won -- and the value of the case is stretched -- by your lawyer's ability to collect, analyze and present the fact of your case to the insurance company and, if necessary, the jury.
There are cases, usually the more serious injury and wrongful death cases with large insurance policies; where a lawsuit is going to be required if the victim wants to maximize the amount of money they will receive. In these cases, you want need a lawyer who is going to fight in the trenches for you... and has a history of success in those trenches (see sample verdicts below).

We talk about the issues that matter to our clients. The first thing you want to know when you are hurt is the value of your motor vehicle accident case and how it is calculated.
This is the most important question for our clients in any car crash case. We cannot give you an exact answer but we provided a ton of information, including average settlement and verdict data and sample details about cases we have settled or won at trial.
In this arena, you need counsel who is willing to stand and fight. Negligent drivers are almost always represented by a lawyer from an insurance company who is paid to prevent the injured victim from receiving fair compensation for the injuries the victim has suffered, using arcane rules and laws to try to defeat your chance at a fair financial recovery.
The take home message: If you are badly hurt, you need a car accident attorney with skill, experience, and a reputation for success on your side. You need to have the best attorney to stand up for you.Our Law Firm
The partners at Miller & Zois used to work for insurance companies. We know the tricks that they expect will prevent you from recovering the damages to which you are entitled. Lawyers Weekly USA characterized the benefits of our training with the insurance companies when they wrote that as former defense counsel, Miller & Zois "knows the other side's playbook." In fact, we know the "playbook" for any insurance company that you will see in a car insurance claim in the Baltimore-Washington area:
You can get the inside information on all of these companies - and many more - here.
Why does this matter? Victims need an advocate who knows which punches these insurance companies will throw at you... and how to block them.
We know how to overcome the roadblocks these insurance companies throw up in order to give our clients the best chance of receiving the maximum possible recovery for their claim.
Ultimately, greedy insurance companies don't care about the fact that you are hurt or financially devastated. They don't mind being unfair and telling you that your health insurance is the only answer. Insurers just care about hanging on to their money and pretending that your tragedy is just a little mishap. To them, asking for more compensation than just your medical bills is just you trying to get a financial windfall. But we will tell you what we tell juries: pain, suffering and agony is the worst harm in any serious case. The amount of an accident victim's medical bills should not define a claim. What matters most is the sum of the human pain and suffering.
The Maryland car accident lawyers at Miller & Zois have represented auto crash victims for almost every imaginable mishap (and some you could not imagine) in a traffic collision, including:
- wrongful death
- spinal cord injuries,
- other back injuries,
- herniated discs,
- brain damage and other head trauma,
- rotator cuff tear,
- other permanent injuries
Our firm often represents the families of victims killed in fatal traffic crashes in Maryland. A disproportionate number of these wrongful death cases involve pedestrians and motorcycles who have little chance against motor vehicles.How to Select the Best Advocate for You

If you have been seriously injured in a motorcycle, truck, or vehicular crash in Maryland, you need to find a car accident lawyer with the skills and ability to best maximize the value of your claim, either by settlement or trial. Before choosing an attorney, you should be looking at whether they have the credentials and experience to handle your case and get you the compensation you deserve, for what you have endured.
There are important questions to ask. Does the firm focus exclusively on tort cases and, specifically, serious motor vehicle crashes? Does the law firm have a history of seven figure verdicts and settlements in car and truck collision cases?
Does the firm have a history of getting verdicts at trial far in excess of the settlement offer made? Certainly, the insurance company fighting your accident claim reviews exactly who are the best Maryland car accident lawyers. Insurance companies factor in the lawyers' history of success at trial in calculating your settlement offer both before and after a lawsuit is filed.
Good, experienced counsel who focus on these types of cases can help you to get the compensation you deserve for your injuries. We believe we have the best accident lawyers in Maryland. We always tell perspective clients, "Don't just call us. Call a few Maryland attorneys and measure us against each other.
