Motor Vehicle Accident FAQs
What happens if I was injured by a driver with no insurance?
You can make a claim for your damages through your own insurance as an Uninsured Motorist (UM) claim. It is coverage for you, when you are a victim. Maryland law requires at a minimum, $30,000 per person/$60,000 per accident for UM/UIM coverage.
What am I entitled to if I was hurt in a crash?
You can make a claim for your property damages, medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and any other out of pocket expenses you have incurred because of the crash. If you have permanent injuries, you may be able to claim future medical expenses, future lost wages, and future pain and suffering.
How much is my case worth?
Many factors are considered in valuing a case and an injury. There is no legal formula for determining case value. For example, you will want to be fully reimbursed for all medical bills, lost wages, and out of pocket expenses resulting from your injury. In addition to that, you can recover for pain and suffering. All these factors will contribute to your case value.
Why do I need an attorney?
Insurance companies try to pay the least amount possible on each claim. A lawyer will help you maximize your recovery and help obtain the necessary proof and documentation needed to bring a successful claim. Insurance companies often try to reach a quick, less than fair settlement with unrepresented individuals.
