Maryland and Annapolis Car Accident Attorneys
Car and pedestrian accidents are by nature complex occurrences. To the victim and his or her family, the most urgent matter is the physical well-being of the injured driver, passenger or pedestrian. He or she may have received emergency medical treatment after the automobile accident, but may require further physical therapy and rehabilitation. In many cases, surgery may be required to repair injured internal organs, ligaments, or to properly set broken bones. An injured person and his or her family naturally hope for the best possible recovery so that their lives are affected to the minimum extent possible. Quite often in automobile accidents, there will be no visible sign of an injury but the victim will suffer neck and back pain ranging from mild discomfort to the extreme and debilitating. For pedestrians hit by drivers, post traumatic stress disorder may occur - causing much fear and anxiety simply by walking down the sidewalk or crossing the street again.
Lost Wages ◦ Access to Medical Care
Unfortunately, the victim of a car crash or pedestrian accident often has more to worry about than his or her pain and suffering.

Watchout! Don't Accept an Offer From the Other Person's Insurance Until You Consult with Us.
Allow Schifanelli & Associates, LLC to evaluate your claim before you accept an offer from the other party's insurance adjuster to compensate you.

Remember, the insurance company wants you to accept their offer to pay as soon as possible for a reason! And they will offer you the smallest payment that they think they can get away with!

Catastrophic Injuries Resulting From Car Accidents
Schifanelli & Associates, LLC aims to help injured people, including accident victims with catastrophic injuries, amputations, disfigurement, and head or spinal cord injuries after a car crash. In some cases, an out of court settlement may be in the victim's best interests, especially if long, drawn-out litigation would leave the victim without means of support. However, since the economic turmoil during 2008-2009, insurance companies have tightened their belts even more than before and are less willing to settle claims at an amount fair to the victim or their surviving family. To counter the effects that this trend has had on victims and their surviving families, the attorneys at Schifanelli & Associates, LLC prepare for litigation from the start. At the first sign that an insurance company intends to not deal fairly with our client, we go to court and take the defendant and his insurer to task.
