For more than 42 years, WGK Personal Injury Lawyers has been committed to representing injury victims across the city of Baltimore, MD.

We’ve spent countless hours fighting against the biggest insurers, hospitals, defense firms, and multinational corporations – and emerging with huge settlements and verdicts for our clients.

Experts can make or break a personal injury case. The parties you are going up against will go to experts for help as they attempt to deny or devalue your claim.

We’re Ready For Trial

Most personal injury cases settle. We will work diligently to negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf. However, we’ll never advise you to accept less than you deserve just to get a win. Instead, our trial attorneys will approach your case with care and prepare for every possibility – including the possibility of going to court.

Our law firm is known for being highly skilled at trial. We know how to take your case, craft it for a jury, and tell a winning story. That’s how we’ve secured significant verdicts for our clients.

Why Should I Hire A Baltimore Personal Injury Attorney?

You Don’t Want to Give the Insurance Company an Advantage

Insurance companies handle cases like yours every day. Adjusters know the claims process inside and out. They know that you probably don’t. As a result, they’ll have an advantage from the start.

Hiring a Baltimore personal injury lawyer levels the playing field. It forces insurers to deal with your claim in good faith. It shows them that you won’t be pushed around or manipulated – and that you’re serious about getting the money you deserve.

You’re More Likely to Win Your Case

It’s true. Accident victims who work with attorneys tend to win more often than those who don’t.

Hiring a lawyer is also associated with bigger wins. According to the Insurance Research Council, injury victims who are represented by a personal injury attorney tend to recover up to 3.5 times more money than claimants pursuing compensation on their own.

You’re Probably Going to Be Blamed

At-fault parties and their insurance providers will try to say that liability is unclear. In fact, they’ll point fingers and blame you.

In Maryland, sharing any degree of fault for an accident is an automatic bar to financial recovery. So, you’ll be entitled to no compensation if you’re assigned just 1% of the blame. 

When you hire a lawyer, you’ll have an advocate in your corner who understands how to best protect you from these “blame the victim” tactics. They’ll be able to investigate your case, gather and analyze evidence, and take other steps to disprove allegations that you’re to blame. If you do nothing, there’s a good chance that you’ll get nothing from your claim.

You Deserve Time to Rest and Recover

Putting physical injuries aside, an unexpected accident can be traumatic. It can be incredibly jarring and upsetting. You need time to heal. That can be quite difficult to do if you’re attempting to navigate a contested legal claim for damages. When you hire a lawyer, they’ll handle your case from start to finish. 

Your lawyer will investigate. They’ll handle the curveballs at-fault parties try to throw your way. They’ll do everything in their power to help you secure a meaningful and substantial monetary recovery. All the while, you have the opportunity to focus on yourself.

Client Reviews

Your Firm handled our case over thirteen years ago and Jill acted as if it had happened yesterday. When I called her, she listened patiently. I faxed her the information that I had gathered in regard to my issue. She reviewed the paperwork and took care of the issue in less than a day. Her patience, compassion and kindness is outstanding.

Thank you Jill, you are awesome! Jill is the BEST!

Yvonne White

When I was first injured I was considering trying to handle it all by myself. However as my injuries progressed a very good friend recommended WGK Personal Injury Lawyers. The moment I entered the office everyone seemed genuinely concerned about my health and pointed me in the right direction to receive the medical treatment needed to get better. The amount of my settlement,  while a major and most welcome surprise, was the perfect bonus and addition to the top notch care and medical treatment received.

Lisa Mitchell

I started recommending Bill to friends, relatives and listeners. Every person who’s gone to see Bill for legal advice has thanked me. The comments I’ve gotten have ranged from a friend who told me Bill and his attorneys helped him put his life back together after he had to declare bankruptcy to the woman who said that Bill was always there for her no matter what when she was in an automobile accident and badly hurt.

Bicycle Accidents

Baltimore is one of the oldest cities in the United States. Its infrastructure was designed long before bicycles were used as a primary form of transportation. This means that many roads don’t have bike lanes or safety barriers. In turn, cyclists are forced into traffic with larger vehicles. When accidents occur, its the rider who tends to suffer the consequences. Our Baltimore bicycle accident attorneys know that cyclists often need compensation after an accident. We will work to help you maximize your recovery from all at-fault parties.

Taking an Uber might be convenient. However, it’s not the safest way to get around. Rideshare drivers are perhaps the most distracted motorists on the road.

So, you deserve to get help from a Baltimore injury attorney who will aggressively pursue damages from all liable parties – including the driver, insurance companies, manufacturers, and others on the road. Reach out to our Uber accident lawyers in Baltimore, MD.

When you are on your own, it’s easy to be outgunned. Fortunately, we are here to help.

What Compensation Can I Recover From a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Maryland?

Economic Damages

When you file a personal injury claim, you can ask to be reimbursed and paid for any verifiable financial costs and expenses that you experience. These are known as economic damages, and can include money for present and future:

  • Hospitalization
  • Surgery, medical equipment, medication, follow-up care, and other medical bills
  • Rehabilitation or therapy
  • Nursing care
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced earning capacity, and
  • Disability.

By receiving economic damages, it should be as if you were never injured, at all. Maryland does not have a cap (or limit) on them. However, you must be able to prove your losses with bills, invoices, receipts, pay stubs, tax returns, or other documents.

Non-Economic Damages

Some injuries can’t be seen. That doesn’t mean that those injuries aren’t real, don’t carry costs, and don’t have a significant impact on your life. In Maryland, non-economic damages are paid to help compensate for these personal injuries. Examples of non-economic damages include:

  • Emotional distress, including anxiety, depression, insomnia, and PTSD
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Disfigurement
  • Scarring, and
  • Pain and suffering.

These damages can be very difficult to value in terms of dollars and cents. That’s why it’s critically important to have a skillful personal injury attorney helping you to get all of the money you deserve.

Note that Maryland does cap non-economic awards. For 2020, the cap is $875,000. In a wrongful death action where there are at least two beneficiaries, the cap is $1,312,500.

Punitive Damages

Unlike economic and non-economic awards, punitive damages aren’t paid to make you whole after an accident. They’re not paid to compensate you for your suffering. Rather, punitive damages are paid for the singular purpose of punishing the defendant.

Punitive damages aren’t available in all personal injury cases. They’re reserved for situations where a defendant’s conduct is malicious. Most often, the defendant must have actively intended and attempted to cause harm or death.

Unlike many other states, Maryland doesn’t have a cap on punitive awards.
