Personal Injury

Helping You Heal by Getting You Fair Injury Compensation

Few of us are prepared for the medical, personal and financial devastation that follows an injury, whether that injury comes from a car or truck accident, harm caused by a surgical or pharmaceutical error, nursing home negligence, a construction accident, a dog bite or a defective product. We can't turn back time, but at the Maryland law firm of Hartel, DeSantis & Howie, LLP, we can and do bring all our trial skills — and our passion for justice — to bear to help you get the compensation you need to take care of yourself and your family after a personal injury.

When You Need Representation From an Attorney for Injuries, Experience Counts

As personal injury attorneys — representing clients throughout the region — we have worked hard to maximize compensation for people who have been harmed by the negligence or reckless behavior of others. Sometimes a fair settlement can be negotiated. All too often, though, it comes down to a fight with the insurance company. When that happens, your lawyer must not be afraid to go to trial — and should have the experience necessary to get the best possible outcome.

We know that injuries differ in severity and in the time it takes to heal from them. Catastrophic injuries such as brain and head injuries can leave victims needing a lifetime of medical and other care — including physical and psychological therapy. Spinal cord damage often leads to quadriplegia or paraplegia. While elderly people often suffer the most debilitating injuries from slip-and-fall accidents, children are the most frequent victims of dog bites. For those who work in the building industry, a construction accident may be covered by both workers comp and personal injury. Even crossing the street or jogging down the road can be dangerous — and victims of pedestrian accidents often suffer severe injuries. Car, truck, motorcycle and other motor vehicle accidents happen every day. When they are fatal, a wrongful death lawsuit can help the family with final expenses — and provide them with the financial support they need for the future.

No matter what caused your injury, our experienced personal injury trial attorneys serving Annapolis & Hanover, MD will ensure that:

  • Your case is properly valued — taking into account all current and future needs
  • All avenues of compensation are explored
  • You understand all your options so that you can make the decision that is best for you and your family
