Baltimore Personal Injury Claims
If you were injured because of the negligence of another, the Law Office of Hasson D. Barnes, LLC can help you recover compensation from the responsible party to help pay for your medical bills, lost income, and the pain and suffering, inconvenience or loss in quality of life you have been forced to endure. Insurance companies typically will offer very little to settle your claim, and if you go to court, they will try to downplay the serious nature of your injuries or allege that your own negligence contributed to the accident. Under Maryland’s strict laws of contributory negligence, if the insurance company can convince a jury that you were in any way responsible for causing the accident, you can be prohibited from any monetary recovery at all. We take an aggressive approach toward litigating your personal injury claim. If we cannot settle your claim for a reasonable amount, we are not afraid to take your case all the way to a jury and fight to get you the compensation you need and deserve. Call our office for a free consultation and help with any type of personal injury claim:
- Personal Injury – car, truck and motorcycle accidents; bicycle and pedestrian accidents, slip and fall, premises liability, defective product injuries
- Medical Malpractice – birth injuries, surgical mistakes, medication errors, misdiagnosis, anesthesia errors
- Workplace Accidents – workers’ compensation for on the job injuries, third-party liability negligence claims
- Wrongful Death – funeral and burial costs, final medical expenses, emotional pain and suffering, loss of companionship or parental care
Criminal Defense in Baltimore City and Baltimore County Courts
A criminal conviction in Maryland can cost you thousands of dollars in fines and months or years in prison, depending upon the offense. Even with a light sentence or probation, a conviction on your record can cost you your job and impair your ability to get good employment, housing, credit, education, a professional license or a gun permit. Your reputation in the community and your relationship at home can suffer as well. In other words, no criminal case should be taken lightly, and you should rarely if ever give statements to the police or plead guilty to an offense without first talking to an experienced and successful criminal defense attorney.
