Most Baltimore residents who own a vehicle have experienced the unfortunate situation of having something go wrong with the vehicle. Whether it is a flat tire, a transmission problem or one of the many other things that can quit working in a vehicle, problems arise from time to time that need to be addressed.

Indeed, when a car is involved in an accident with a semi, there may be little chance that those traveling in the car escape the incident without injury.
