Personal Injury

If the recklessness of another causes physical personal injury, sickness, or death, the party responsible is liable under negligence law. They are financially responsible for those they have harmed. Under these circumstances, the victim needs a personal injury attorney to guide their case. No matter what type of personal or bodily injury, Powers & Powers will represent you with over 55 years of legal experience. We specialize in representing clients who have suffered personal injury from auto, motorcycle, and truck crashes, bicycle and pedestrian injury, medical malpractice and all types of common or unusual accidents or incidents, including the following:


Accidents

Automobile
Your life can be greatly disrupted when you are hurt in an auto, truck or motorcycle accident. Your injuries may leave you unable to work, with concerns about your medical bills and lack of income. The lawyers at Powers & Powers, in Baltimore, Maryland, are here to advise you on your rights, your options, and your path toward justice after an auto, truck or motorcycle accident. Although we may expect to achieve a satisfactory settlement, we always prepare your claim in anticipation of trial. Your case receives our full attention and we will seek the maximum possible compensation for your collision related injuries.

Motorcycle Accidents
As a motorcycle rider, you are at risk of serious injury in any accident. Drivers of automobiles often fail to drive defensively in response to seeing a motorcycle on the road, resulting in collisions. Poorly maintained roadways are also a danger for motorcyclists and the municipality responsible for a road in disrepair may be held accountable. Not only is this a specialized area of practice at Powers & Powers, it is also a personal one. Troy Powers has been a been a motorcycle rider for years and understands what other motorcyclists are up against every time they put their tires to the roadways.

Truck Accidents
Crashes involving 18-wheeler and other large trucks can result in severe injuries. Fortunately, numerous regulations govern the safe operation of these trucks, from mandatory pre-trip inspections by the drivers to maximum allowable driving hours. Our experienced attorneys uncover evidence of lapses in safety protocols which may have contributed to your truck accident. Powers & Powers will take on these companies and work hard to establish where these breeches may have occurred in an effort to deliver the financial settlement you deserve.

Wrongful Death

A wrongful death claim is a lawsuit brought by the surviving family members and/or loved ones of someone who was killed as a result of someone else's negligent or intentional act. This lawsuit is usually brought against the person, persons or entity believed to be responsible for the death. Central to the wrongful death claim is proof that those filing the claim have been harmed as a direct result of the death. Monetary damages are an important part of these lawsuits and range from medical and funeral expenses to loss of future income and benefits. Bring your concerns to Powers & Powers, and we will help you determine the best course of action.

Wrongful death claims are subject but not limited to:
  • The person(s) being sued caused the death (completely or in part) of the victim.
  • The person(s) being sued were either negligent when they caused the death, or are responsible for the death as a matter of law (strict liability).
  • The victim's spouse, dependents and/or beneficiaries are alive.
  • The victim's death has caused monetary losses, compensation for which is being sought.
