1. Personal injury lawyers throughout the US tell us the types of cases they specialize in.
2. Claimants (like you) submit their case details. The closest attorney, who accepts your claim type, is immediately notified.
3. Your Accident.com lawyer reaches out immediately to discuss your case or schedule a free consultation.
Hiring a lawyer is an important decision if you have large medical bills, lost wages, or were injured due to negligence.
Accident.com connects you to a lawyer that makes sure you get paid everything you are entitled to. Your lawyer files your claim for you and then negotiates the amount of your settlement.
If the insurance company is believed to be acting in bad faith, your lawyer can request a trial and sue for a higher settlement.
Your lawyer will:
1) Request medical records for you.
2) Review police reports and medical charts.
3) Communicate back and forth with your insurance adjuster.
Accident.com lawyers do the heavy lifting, so you don’t have to.
People who hire attorneys statistically receive more money in their injury settlement. Even after paying the lawyer's contingency fee, people still walk away with more money than they probably would have received without an attorney.
You do not have to pay your attorney unless you win. When you win, your lawyer is paid a percentage of your final settlement.
This means the better you do, the better your lawyer does. It’s a win-win.
Bankruptcy, divorce, criminal charges, etc, can all affect your injury case. Your personal injury lawyer is familiar with different areas of law and can work with other attorneys if needed. Your Accident.com lawyer will work with your other lawyer (from other practice areas) to reach a solution in your best interest. A personal injury lawyer can also handle the insurance company's lawyers if your case goes past negotiations.
In Maryland, you have three years to file a personal injury claim. This starts on the date of the accident. An insurance claim may take longer than this interval, but as long as a claim has been filed, this isn't a problem. A car accident lawyer in Baltimore, or one in your area, can help you keep track of these important deadlines.
Being an at-fault state means that recovering damages is dependent upon what your share of blame is in an accident. Maryland takes this a step further and defines their laws as contributory negligence, meaning that if you're found to be even 1% at fault, you cannot recover any damages. Retaining Maryland lawyers for accidents who understand this difficult and often challenging system can help you get the compensation you deserve.
You should absolutely see a doctor after a car accident, regardless of severity. You could be injured and not realize it. Adrenaline can mask injuries for hours after an accident, and other injuries may not make themselves known immediately. Seek medical attention even if you feel okay, just to make sure that you don't have any serious hidden problems. Plus, if you're injured and don't document it, insurance companies could deny you compensation. Car accident lawyers in Maryland are familiar with the complex situations that even minor accidents can turn into. They can help you understand your rights and the options to get you the help you need. For more information on common injuries after an accident, visit our resource center.
For the Accident.com founders, that question was: “Why is getting paid by insurance companies such a frustrating experience?" Frustrating is an understatement. Navigating the world of insurance is confusing, stressful and a step backward in time (hello, call centers). Even when they know they are covered, people know insurance companies make more money if they pay you less.
