You Deserve Compensation For Your Injury
When you are injured by someone else’s negligence, you may not know where to turn for help. Whether you were in a car accident, slipped and fell in a store or were given the wrong medication by your doctor, you have the right to compensation for your injuries. An experienced personal injury lawyer can make sure you receive the recovery you deserve.

We represent injured clients throughout northeastern Maryland from our offices in Upper Marlboro and Bel Air.
What Qualifies As A Personal Injury?
There are many categories of claims that the courts consider as personal injury cases. Anytime someone acts in a negligent way toward someone else and that action causes the other person an injury, the injured person may file a personal injury case. At the Law Offices of Dawn S. Veltman, LLC, we focus on three types of personal injury cases:
- Car accidents: Motor vehicle accidents of all kinds are one of the most common types of personal injury claims. Whether the driver is distracted, under the influence or simply not following the rules of the road, if they cause an accident that injures you, you have the right to recover, usually from their auto insurance carrier.
- Premises liability: When you visit property owned by someone else, you expect to be relatively safe. Property owners, including retail stores and shopping centers, have a duty to keep their property free from hazards that could injure a guest. If they know of a hazard, they must warn people about it. If you suffered an injury on someone else’s property, you could have a premises liability claim against the owner.
- Medical malpractice: When your health care provider fails to provide you with proper care and their negligence causes you harm, you may bring a medical malpractice claim against the provider. Examples include misdiagnosis, medication errors and mistakes during surgery.
You should never deal with the insurance company alone, including offering a recorded statement or accepting a settlement. They are not there to help you, even if they offer you money. Their job is to pay as little for your claim as they can. We will be there with you every step of the way to make sure you receive a fair settlement or to take your case to trial.
