Fatal Commercial Truck Accident

Injured in a Truck Accident?

Maryland wrongful death laws are the last thing that you want to worry about after a tragic crash has taken the life of a loved one. Maryland has caps or limits on the amount that a jury is permitted to compensate someone for non-economic damages after a person’s life has wrongfully been taken. There are no limits on the amount that a jury may order an insurance company to pay for economic losses in a wrongful death claim.

Family recovers commercial insurance policy after accident

Experienced Truck Accident Lawyers

George Patterson recovered a commercial truck policy for the wrongful death of a woman in Anne Arundel County from a car accident with a commercial vehicle. George Patterson’s client was stopped in her car waiting to turn left when a heavy-duty tow truck struck her from behind in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. The heavy-duty tow truck destroyed the driver’s car and she died at the scene. She left behind a husband, her parents an adult son in college and teenage daughter in high school.

Mr. Patterson is a very courteous, knowledgeable and efficient lawyer. He was very attentive to my case and very accessible. His consideration was very much appreciated when dealing with the stresses associated with filing suit. He handled all matters relevant to the case brilliantly and, above all, he was considerate and unpretentious. I was thrilled with the outcome of my case. Mr. Patterson acquired a settlement which was over 100 times the initial offer of the insurance company. I would thoroughly recommend Mr. Patterson as an exceptional lawyer and if ever the need arises for future legal assistance, I would definitely return to Mr. Patterson for his assistance.


A repeat accident client.

Truck drivers that are at risk for losing their jobs due to a driving error often fail to take responsibility. The failure to take responsibility invariably leads a wrongfully injured person’s claim being denied.
