Car Accident Victims Recover with Top Rated Bowie Lawyers

What to Expect

Car accidents disrupt your health, family, career and finances.

The crushing impact of a car accident is not just physical, it is also emotional and financial.  The Bowie and Annapolis car accident lawyers from Patterson Law can help.  Each lawyer has helped hundreds of clients after car accidents.  Car accident victims instantly go from a person that everyone depended on to a person that must depend on others.  The disruption often begins with the need for immediate medical treatment.

After being rushed to the hospital you soon realize that the emergency room team is primarily concerned about unstable or life threatening injuries.  They take action for the person with internal bleeding in the brain but not for the person with a concussion.  They fix broken bones but will send you home with back pain.  After the hospital visit you have little guidance other than to follow up with a doctor that you have never heard of or your family doctor who probably does not routinely treat the injured.

The next day you realize that you are unable to work, unable to care for your family and you no longer have a car.  Medical bills are coming, your monthly bills are waiting and you are unable to work and no longer have a car to drive to work.  Your health insurance company is refusing to pay medical bills because you were hurt in a car accident. The insurance company for the person that caused the car accident is calling to request a recorded statement while often offering encouraging words.  Why does the insurance company need a recorded statement when the car accident is clearly their driver’s fault?

He worked diligently for me.

This was my first experience working with a lawyer, and George made it an extraordinary experience. Not only did he initiate the consultation by coming to my home because I was too badly bruised to make the drive to his office, but he also answered all of my calls and emails in a timely fashion. When it became time to present my case he ensured I was kept abreast to all information and I was completely prepared to proceed. George won my case because he is an awesome and knowledgeable lawyer, who genuinely cares.


A car accident client.

Car Accident victims expect to be compensated for what they have endured after a car accident.  Insurance adjusters can only obtain authority to compensate injuries that are properly documented.  A properly documented damage or injury is a damage that a car accident lawyer can present in court.
