Our Lawyers regularly handle auto accident cases for injuries caused by the negligence of another in Maryland and The District of Columbia. Our auto accident lawyers handle injury cases exclusively. Therefore, our auto accident lawyers are very familiar with the types of injuries caused by auto accidents including head on collisions, rear end collisions and t-bone type accidents. We understand that one of these auto accidents can be a life altering event and you expect personal service to help you get your life back to normal. If you were involved in an accident and were not the at fault party, then you should speak with one of our lawyers.
The most frequent claims that injured parties make in a Maryland auto accident case are for property damage, personal injury protection, lost wages, past medical bills, future medical bills and pain and suffering. Our Maryland auto accident lawyers can explain all of your potential claims and the process for making each claim. Generally speaking our office will make every claim we can make against the at fault party’s insurance company. The claim for property damage will be made to help you get your vehicle repaired. If your vehicle cannot be fixed, we will get you the fair market value of your vehicle(in terms of money so you can purchase another vehicle). The one claim which is certainly made against our client’s insurance company is the PIP claim. PIP, or personal injury protection is a coverage that people have with their own insurance coverage that can help pay for their medical bills and lost wages. The amounts of this type of coverage vary depending upon the policy. Past and future medical bills are determined by the severity of the injury. When we speak of past medical bills, we are referring to medical bills that were incurred after the accident but before any verdict or settlement. In cases where the injury is just a simple soft tissue type injury, usually the only bills we can include are the past medical bills as the injuries do not require future treatment. In cases that involve a serious soft tissue injury or broken bones, there can be some additional need for future treatment. We see these types of cases in serious spine injuries, shoulder injuries, head injuries or fractures. In those cases, we make a claim for future medical treatment. The pain and suffering portion of your case will also be controlled, in part, by the severity of your injury. Maryland is a very diverse State and each county has its own court system. Our Maryland auto accident lawyers follow the verdicts from the many counties throughout Maryland as the verdicts in some counties are much better than in other counties. This is to say that an auto accident case involving the identical injuries from an identical accident could be worth two totally different amounts depending upon the jurisdiction and venue where the case was filed. In some cases our Maryland auto accident lawyers have a choice of jurisdiction and venue.
