If you have been hurt by a drunk driver in a devastating car accident, it may be clear to you that you were not to blame for what happened, but that does not guarantee that you will receive proper compensation for your injuries and damages. In order to pursue justice and seek the monies you deserve, you must create a personal injury claim of your own; the legal and administrative punishments enacted by Maryland State law enforcement and agencies will not address your needs.
At the Law Office of Robert R. Castro, P.A., our Charles County car accident lawyer can take the stress off your shoulders and manage your case on your behalf, all while you recuperate.

We are all encouraged to drive defensively and responsibly at all times, always yielding the right of way when it will prevent an accident. A drunk driver can turn that entire system of safety and honor on its head by becoming entirely unpredictable. Alcohol will make someone act irrationally and drive recklessly. Other drivers cannot guess where an intoxicated motorist is going, or how fast they will approach, and thus cannot be expected to avoid an accident.
A collision with a drunk driver may cause severe injury, such as:
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 170 Maryland drivers will lose their lives each year due to drunk driving accidents. In such incidents, a wrongful death lawsuit may be filed by the decedent’s family, friends, or next of kin.
Litigation is not an easy process, especially if you have suffered considerable harm due to the negligence of a drunk driver. Our Waldorf personal injury lawyers try to make your life easier by offering weekend and evening consultations so you do not have to mix up your own schedule in pursuit of compensation. We also know that you may be unable to travel far due to your injuries. Worry not, for we can come to your home, office, or hospital room for your appointments.
Lastly, when you call 240-392-4430 for your free consultation, be sure to ask about our contingency fee agreements. Most personal injury and car accident cases will qualify for contingency fee payments – you owe us nothing, not even retainer fees, until we win your case. You also do not have to worry about paying us more than you earn because contingency
fees are paid through a percentage of your settlement earnings, not out of your pocket!
