How Can a Yorktown Car Accident Attorney Help You?
Recovering damages from at-fault drivers should be an easy and straightforward thing. Unfortunately, many find out the hard way that getting a negligent driver’s insurance company to step up and do the right thing is anything but easy. As the accident victim, you’re usually not the insurance company’s client, so many of them will do everything they can to keep from paying what you deserve.
To accomplish their mission of saving their bottom line, they may employ tactics like undervaluing your claim or even denying liability. That’s where we come in.
Jenner Law is focused on your future. Our mission is to help you get the compensation you need to move forward after your accident. Our Yorktown car accident attorneys will give you, and your case, a high level of personalized attention in order to accomplish that. We’ll represent your interests at every turn.
Examples of what our team can do for you include:
- Representing you in negotiations with the at-fault driver’s insurance company
- Compiling evidence that establishes the other driver’s liability (if necessary)
- Representing you in court if negotiations fail
- Making sure your case is filed before the statute of limitations expires
- Keeping records of your medical bills, property damage, and other accident-related expenses
Who Is Liable for Damages After a Yorktown Car Accident?
In most car accident cases, the driver who violated the law is liable (financially responsible) for the damage they cause in an accident. However, the at-fault driver may not be the only liable party.
In some cases, car accidents are caused by a defective part such as a faulty tire or bad brakes. If circumstances like these led to your accident, our lawyers may pursue the vehicle or tire manufacturer for damages. If you had an accident with someone who was driving for their employer when they hit you, their employer may also be liable.
When a car accident attorney from Jenner Law is on your case, we will follow the facts wherever they lead. Whether it’s a driver’s private insurance company or a large employer, our attorneys are ready. We have experience fighting large companies and getting results for clients like you.

What Damages Can You Demand After a Yorktown Car Accident?
Car accidents almost always result in significant damage to both the health and property of the accident victims. If your accident was caused by someone else, all the costs related to your recovery are damages you can demand from the at-fault driver.
Examples of those damages include, but are not limited to, the following
- Compensation for the pain and suffering you’ve endured
- Cost of medical treatment immediately following the accident
- Cost of continuing medical care or post-accident treatment
- Cost of repairing property damage (e.g., bodywork or mechanical damage to your car)
- Replacement value for property destroyed in the accident
- Reimbursement for lost wages, income, or other revenue you were unable to earn because of the accident or while you recovered
- Compensation for lost quality of life if your accident left you with a life-long condition (e.g., chronic pain, temporary or permanent physical impairment)
You Have Limited Time to Demand Damages After the Accident
Maryland law has a three-year statute of limitations on personal injury cases per Md. Code, Cts. & Jud. Proc. § 5-101. That means you have three years from the date of your Yorktown car accident to file your case. While that may seem like a long time, your interests may be better served if you file as soon as possible after the collision.
Once an attorney from our firm files your case, we can collect evidence and records that prove the at-fault party caused your accident. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can locate witnesses or discover time-sensitive evidence like surveillance footage. All this evidence can be valuable proof of liability.
What Is the Value of Your Car Accident Case?
The potential value of the victim’s losses in a car accident case varies from person to person. That’s because the severity of the collision, the total medical bills, and the accident victims’ suffering are never identical. Even two people in the same car accident can have completely different injuries.
Because of this, the best way for us to estimate your case value is through a thorough case evaluation. The team at Jenner Law offers free consultations to people in your situation. Tell us what you’re going through, and we’ll tell you how we can help.
