Free Initial Consultation in Personal Injury Cases:

Robertson & Robertson, Accident & Injury Attorneys is a Maryland Law Firm based on the Eastern Shore that has extensive experience in car, truck and bus accident insurance claims and cases involving college students.

There is no doubt that it is beneficial in accident cases to hire an experienced attorney who is familiar with the area where the accident occurred and has previously handled cases involving the same or similar issues. Such attorneys will know who to call to conduct an investigation and the best places to go for treatment for a particular injury. And if a court case becomes necessary, it is advantageous to have an attorney who is experienced in the local courts (a court case is almost always filed in the county where the accident occurred).

Special legal issues can arise in some accidents, particularly when a public college or university vehicle or employee is involved. Special notices, deadlines and limitations can be triggered, and if not followed, can prohibit any settlement or lawsuit. We are very familiar with these special legal requirements and will make sure that you are protected.

At Robertson & Robertson, we are accident attorneys who know the Eastern Shore. Our husband and wife attorney team have been involved in many cases involving students and employees at Salisbury University, University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES), Washington College, Wor-Wic Community College and Chesapeake Community College.

Former insurance company attorney J. Scott Robertson has twice been named Runner-Up as Best Lawyer on the Eastern Shore by Metropolitan Magazine. He was the 2004 statewide recipient of the Edward F. Shea, Jr. Professionalism Award from the Maryland Bar Foundation.

Scott Robertson is a former insurance company attorney. He spent the first eight years of his legal career defending negligent drivers on behalf of the insurance companies. Many of the car accident cases Scott defended involved college students.

Since switching his practice several years ago from defending the insurance companies and the at-fault drivers to representing the injured victims of car and truck accidents, Scott and Laura Robertson have had the privilege to represent many college students and employees for their car and truck accident claims. By meticulously preparing each client's claim, we can usually achieve a good personal injury settlement without the necessity of filing a lawsuit.

In those situations when a court case is necessary, we have the experience and know our way around the Eastern Shore Courts. In fact, Scott Robertson has been the lead counsel for the plaintiff or defendant in hundreds of car accident lawsuits up and down the Eastern Shore, and has tried approximately 200 injury lawsuits to verdict.
