We Take Accident Injury Cases Just Like Yours
Trollinger Law, LLC represents clients in a wide variety of personal injury claims and lawsuits, including:
Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
Job injuries and illnesses can happen to anyone. When a workplace accident occurs, the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Act provides protection for injured employees. In most cases, employees will be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits that will allow them to seek medical treatment and receive a portion of their lost wages as they recover. Reimbursement for mileage to and from the doctor of their choosing is the right of every injured worker who has an accepted claim. Benefits for permanent injuries and death benefits are also possible through workers’ compensation in Maryland.
Maryland law requires all business owners with one or more employees to carry workers’ compensation coverage. When you get hurt or sick performing job-related duties, you can apply for benefits through your employer’s insurer. The good news is that these benefits are available regardless of fault. In other words, you don’t have to show that anyone was reckless or negligent in order to get paid.
The downside is that the workers’ comp system is complex and full of red tape. Applications are often filled out incorrectly or not completed at all by the employer on behalf of the injured worker. A knowledgeable workers’ compensation lawyer knows how to complete these applications properly and will submit them in a timely way. The sooner your application is approved, the sooner your workers’ compensation can be paid.
Injured at work? Our experienced Maryland workers’ comp attorney will fight for that you get the full and fair benefits you are owed. We can also assist with appeals.
In addition, we’ll explore whether a personal injury lawsuit is possible in your case. Maryland won’t let you sue your employer, but you may have access to compensation if a third party was responsible for your injuries or occupational disease.
Car Accident Lawyer
Maryland is a fault state when it comes to auto accidents. If you’ve been injured in a collision caused by someone else’s negligence, you can file an injury claim and receive compensation as long as you can prove they were at fault for the wreck.
It’s extremely important to speak with a skilled car accident lawyer before pursuing an auto accident claim in Maryland. Unlike most other states, Maryland awards compensation according to a rule known as contributory negligence. Put simply, you will only recover money if you can prove that the at-fault party was 100 percent responsible for the accident. If you are found to be even one percent at fault for the crash, you won’t get any money at all.
What does that mean for you? It means that the other party’s insurer will be fighting hard to push any amount of blame onto you to avoid a payout. You need a lawyer who won’t be intimidated by unfair tactics and stubborn adjusters. There’s no need to worry with Trollinger Law, LLC by your side. We have experience representing clients who have been injured in car accidents in Charles County, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. When you hire us, we’ll aggressively negotiate with the insurer to make sure you receive the maximum settlement available.
Truck Accident Lawyer
Large trucks are dangerous companions on Maryland’s congested roadways. When an 80,000-pound truck crashes into a smaller car or even a pickup truck, the resulting injuries can be debilitating and life-changing. Tractor-trailer accidents are typically the result of negligence, either on the part of the trucker, trucking company, maintenance crews, cargo loaders, and/or other drivers.
The top causes of truck accidents include:
- Fatigued or drowsy driving
- Texting while driving
- Improperly loaded or unsecured cargo
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Inadequate driver training
- Poor maintenance
- Faulty parts
- Negligent hiring practices

Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Motorcycle accidents frequently result in severe trauma. Riders may suffer road rash, a traumatic brain injury (TBI), broken bones, internal organ damage, neck injuries, back and spine injuries, and other disabling injuries in a collision. Obtaining maximum compensation is essential in these catastrophic cases, but motorcyclists often encounter biases from the other party, their insurer, and even juries. They may believe that bikers are dangerous and reckless people. We know that these assumptions couldn’t be further from the truth.
At Trollinger Law LLC, we know that motorcyclists often fall victim to distracted, aggressive, or irresponsible motorists who fail to respect their right to share the road. When a biker is hurt through no fault of their own, we’ll be there to fight for justice and fair compensation.

Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Motorists are required to share the road with cyclists. But many drivers fail to exercise proper caution when driving near bicyclists. When a motorist fails to leave adequate distance between his/her vehicle and a bike, makes a sudden turn or lane change, ignores the bike lane, or opens a vehicle door in the path on an oncoming cyclist, it is almost always the cyclist who suffers severe or fatal injuries.
If you’ve been hurt in a bike accident, contact an experienced Waldorf bicycle accident attorney to learn your legal rights.
Pedestrian Injury Lawyer
Pedestrians often suffer the most severe injuries in an accident. Unlike the occupants or a car or even a motorcyclist, pedestrians have no protection from the force of impact when they are struck.
The most common causes of pedestrian accidents in Maryland include:
- Failure to yield the right of way
- Running a stop sign or red light
- Distracted driving
- Alcohol or drug impairment
A knowledgeable pedestrian accident lawyer at Trollinger Law LLC knows the devastation that these collisions can cause. Let us fight for the compensation you deserve.
