Car Accident Lawyers in Waldorf, MD
Were You Injured in a Car Accident? Our Firm Can Fight for You!
Every year, auto accidents claim the lives of thousands of people. Hundreds of thousands more are seriously injured in motor vehicle collisions on Maryland highways and roads. Unfortunately, a large majority of these incidents are entirely preventable, occurring only as a result of someone's careless, reckless, or even intentional actions.
If you were injured or if your loved one was killed in a car accident and you believe another driver or party was at fault, it is in your best interests to reach out to an experienced and competent attorney as soon as possible. You may be entitled to financial compensation for your damages, including medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, vehicle repairs, and more.

Based in Waldorf, MD, our car accident attorneys have earned a reputation throughout Southern Maryland as skilled and zealous advocates for personal injury victims. Together, we have recovered tens of millions of dollars for our clients; we are prepared to fight for you and your recovery.
What Does a Car Accident Lawyer Do?
A car accident lawyer stands up for you in car accident cases where you were not at fault. You may be unfairly left with injuries, medical bills, vehicle expenses, pain and suffering, or other effects. He or she can help you with:
Offering legal advice - There is a lot of mixed information out there; a lawyer can make the best course of action clearer.
Understanding your rights - Laws vary by state, and there are a lot of fine details.
Negotiating a fair settlement - People who represent themselves in court on average receive smaller settlements than those with legal representation.
Hiring a car accident attorney isn’t just for those who have gotten in serious car accidents. You may need protection in smaller collisions if the other party is trying to shift blame or make false legal claims.

The effects of an auto accident aren’t just physical; many victims suffer severe and sometimes debilitating emotional and financial harm following collisions, including:

If your accident and injuries were caused by the negligent or wrongful actions of another driver or party, you do not have to face these consequences on your own. The Farmer & Klopfer is here to help you get the justice and fair compensation you are owed.
Pay Nothing Until We Recover Compensation for You
Many people are understandably concerned about the costs of hiring an attorney. However, at the Farmer & Klopfer, we offer our legal services on a contingency fee basis. This means there are no upfront costs for you and our lawyers’ fees are only paid if and when they successfully secure a settlement or award on your behalf.
Our Waldorf car accident attorneys will do everything they can to help you recover a swift settlement. However, if negotiations are not possible, we are fully prepared to take your case to trial.

Could not have asked for a better group of attorneys to handle our legal problem
We could not have asked for a better group of attorneys to handle our legal problem. James Farmer and Melvin Allen were very knowledgeable, confident and successful in handling our case. I will definitely be referring this Law Firm to others.”
Keeps in touch with you throughout the whole process, and even after your case is over with
I just recently had James E. Farmer handle my second DUI and I received the best possible outcome I could've wished for. The judge I had could've really laid down the hammer on me but James worked his magic and did an incredible job. He knows what he is talking about and is very humble. He keeps in touch with you throughout the whole process, and even after your case is over with, and he explains everything so you know exactly what is going on. This is my first time hiring James and without a doubt, I would hire him again. He would be the first person I'd call if another legal problem should ever rise-- though I've made a promise to myself to stay away from the law as much as possible. He will be highly recommended to anyone that asks me if I know a great lawyer.”
