Matthew Davey’s Approach to Injury Cases

Below, Maryland personal injury lawyer Matthew Davey discusses why he chose to practice personal injury law and explains its basics.

I typically handle civil cases involving persons who have been injured due to the negligence of others. People can be injured in a number of ways, such as automobile accidents, medical malpractice, slip and fall, premises liability or product liability.

I enjoy the personal interaction with my clients. What I enjoy about personal injury law is that I represent people, everyday individuals, and I can develop a good, working relationship with each of my clients, where we trust each other and can work together towards a favorable outcome. I find personal injury cases involving a unique fact pattern, things that are out of the ordinary, to be most interesting.

What Is Personal Injury Law?

Personal injury law is the term used to describe the legal mechanism by which an injured person is able to recover for their injuries which were caused by the negligence of another.

This category of law includes any number of cases. The most common type stems from automobile accidents where one person causes a collision either with another vehicle or with a pedestrian, thereby injuring an innocent party.

These types of cases can also include medical malpractice, slips and falls, or premises liability. They can also include product liability cases, where a merchant or a manufacturer places an item into commerce, it is purchased by a regular, everyday person, and that product injures the consumer.

Our Core Principles

My core principles are thoroughness and an open, working relationship in approaching cases. I take each case at face value and do my best to fully evaluate all aspects of the claim in an honest and fair manner. I believe this is the foundation of these cases because so much of the case can turn on the fine details which, often times, go beyond just how the accident occurred.

Likewise, I believe in a good working relationship with my clients. It is best to have an open dialogue with a clear line of communication between me and my client. When the attorney and the client are able to communicate freely and honestly with each other, then the attorney-client relationship is very good. When the attorney-client relationship is very good, each party trusts and believes in the other. I then know that I am representing my client to the fullest extent possible.
