Middle Car Syndrome

By Berman, Sobin, Gross, Feldman & Darby LLP |

I tried a case not too long ago in Baltimore County. My client was the driver of a car that was rear ended and, as a result, was pushed into the rear of the car in front of him. He was injured and made a claim against the rear driver’s insurance, which was denied…. Read More »

The Insurance Adjuster vs. The Officer: Who Will Win?

By Berman, Sobin, Gross, Feldman & Darby LLP |

I often have clients ask, if the police report says the other driver is at fault, then why won’t the other driver’s insurer pay my claim? The police report (also known as a Vehicle Accident Report) has nothing to do with whether a judge or jury will find a driver at fault, and therefore… Read More »

Don’t Get Run Over

By Berman, Sobin, Gross, Feldman & Darby LLP |

One of the worst types of collisions is the pedestrian strike. There is no real positive outcome when a 2,000 lb. vehicle strikes or runs over a person. Generally, the law in Maryland is that pedestrians have the right-of-way in a crosswalk, after that, each case has to be reviewed individually. A few years… Read More »

You Will Not Be Happy With The Total Loss Value Of Your Car

By Berman, Sobin, Gross, Feldman & Darby LLP |

I tell every new client whose vehicle is totaled the same thing: “You will not be happy with the total loss value of your car.” It is true. When you add up your monthly payments, maintenance, subjective love of your car, and memories, no total loss value will do it justice. For the most… Read More »

You Can’t Split Your Claims

By Berman, Sobin, Gross, Feldman & Darby LLP |

I was in court a few weeks ago at the cashier’s window and I overhead a gentleman asking some questions on how to serve an insurance company. I generally try not to listen to other people’s business when in court, it can be personal, but on the other hand, I also try to help… Read More »

My Advice For Avoiding Car Crashes This Holiday Season

By Berman, Sobin, Gross, Feldman & Darby LLP |

Stay off the road on New Year’s. When I was a teenager, my parents would not let me drive or ride in a car on New Year’s eve. I thought they were being over protective, and generally they were. Nonetheless, the advice is still good. According to the Maryland State Police, Maryland suffered 171… Read More »

The Importance Of Underinsured And Uninsured Motorist Coverage

By Berman, Sobin, Gross, Feldman & Darby LLP |

Part of every railroader’s daily existence is the process of deadheading from one work location to another. It is important to remember that under the Federal Employers Liability Act, CSX Transportation, Inc. is required to provide you with a reasonably safe place in which to work. This duty extends to the premises of third… Read More »

It’s A Fall And Injury, Not A Slip And Fall

By Berman, Sobin, Gross, Feldman & Darby LLP |

In addition to motor vehicle collisions, another type of case commonly seen by personal injuries attorneys is the “slip and fall.” First, I don’t call them slips and falls; that is too general and carries a negative connotation with some of the general public and especially with tort reformers. Plus, many “slip and fall”… Read More »

I’m Not The Type Of Person To Sue

By Berman, Sobin, Gross, Feldman & Darby LLP |

Are you affected by TORT REFORM? The short answer is “yes.” We all are, but how do you know? I know because my clients keep apologizing to me when you come into my office. It is very common for me to meet with a new client for the first time and hear, “I am… Read More »

That Was So Long Ago

By Berman, Sobin, Gross, Feldman & Darby LLP |

One of the phrases that I hear at trial and at depositions that makes me cringe is: “That was so long ago.” Everyone says it: Plaintiffs, Defendants, witnesses, everyone. It doesn’t matter what the person’s role in the case is, or whether they have been properly prepared by their attorney, whether they have no… Read More »
