Maryland Attorney Recommends Hiring a Civil Lawyer

Video Transcript:

Rob Rosenthal:

If you're in a crash caused by a drunk driver, do you need a civil attorney? We asked Maryland attorney Gwen-Marie Davis Hicks in this AskTheLawyers™ Quick Question.

Gwen-Marie Davis Hicks:

Yes, because if you're injured and you're hit by a drunk driver, you’ve got injuries. You want to make sure that you're not low-balled and that you have someone who is knowledgeable in dealing with car crashes to help you get the compensation and the settlement that you deserve. So it's very important to call us right away. Again, no statements to the insurance company. Make sure you are treated and you go to treatment, and just guiding you along the way. My job, what I like to do, is to hold my clients’ hands through the process. Look, you are injured. Your job is to get better, to go to your doctor's appointments and deal with the trauma of dealing with a drunk driver and get yourself better. Our job is to fight for you and to allow you to get the compensation that you deserve. So leave the stress to us, and call us.
