Premier Criminal Defense & Personal Injury Legal Advocacy In Maryland
40 Years Of Combined Experience Representing Maryland’s Injured
Accidents involving trucks are often some of the most tragic accidents on Maryland’s roadways. The sheer size and power of these vehicles can forever change the lives of individuals in smaller vehicles or motorcycles.
Your insurance company knows this and should be prepared to give you the compensation you need to cover medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. It is common for an insurance company to attempt to lowball an accident victim in an effort to save money and keep its profit margins high.
This is unacceptable, and you need an advocate who will fight for your right to fair compensation. At The Law Offices of Thomas Maronick Jr LLC, we are prepared to represent your interests in the face of unethical or outright illegal practices by insurance providers and trucking companies. Authorities in the legal field, our award-winning attorneys have the skill and resources it takes to go up against these formidable opponents.
