Experienced Baltimore County Trial Attorney

Car accident lawyer, George Patterson obtained a Baltimore County car accident verdict of $60,790.55 in 2012. The jury verdict was for a rear end car accident that caused a chronic lumbar strain. The Baltimore City client incurred medical bills of $12,200.00. The Baltimore County car accident verdict awarded the medical bills plus lost income and other business losses in the amount of $2,672.00 plus $45,900.00 in pain and suffering. The pre-suit offer from the insurance company for the car accident client was $12,100.00. The offer issued the day before the trial was $25,000.00. The defendant disputed that the plaintiff sustained a chronic back strain in the car accident. The Baltimore County jury was persuaded by the Board Certified Orthopedist that testified that chronic back strains can occur and did occur as a result of this rear-end car accident.  Baltimore County juries have a reputation for conservative personal injury verdicts. Jurors appreciate competent testimony from highly qualified doctors in car accident cases.

Insurance companies follow valuation guidelines that limit the compensation offered for chronic back and neck strains.  This Baltimore County car accident verdict was outside of the insurance company valuation guidelines.

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.

Good people that suffer chronic back or neck strains are offered inadequate compensation from insurance companies because they are lumped into a group that insurance companies suspect are comprised of frauds, people embellishing their injuries and people passing off pre-existing health problems on a car accident.
