Personal Injury Law
There are two basic types of auto insurance rules in the United States. Some states have a no-fault rule, which means that a driver’s own insurance company will pay their accident-related bills no matter who caused the accident. Most states have an at-fault rule for auto insurance. This means that the person who caused the accident will be the one responsible for the expenses associated with the crash. Maryland is an at-fault state.
What to Do in an Accident
Whenever you are involved in a car accident, it is important to call the police, wait for them to arrive and get a copy of the police report. Be sure to exchange insurance and contact information with the other driver and get the names of any witnesses at the accident.Use your phone to take still images and videos, but only from a safe vantage point. Do not jeopardize your personal safety when moving about an accident scene. Do not try to move if the nature of your injuries don’t allow it.If you are injured in a Maryland car accident, there are several different ways you can go about recovering money. You can call your own insurance company and have them call the at-fault driver’s company. You can call the other driver’s insurance company directly and file a claim. If the other driver did not have insurance, you may want to consider filing a lawsuit against them. Do not accept a settlement for your injuries without first discussing it with a qualified, Rockville car accident lawyer, like attorney Hector Z. Oropeza.
What are the Insurance Requirements for Drivers in Maryland?
Before you can register a vehicle in the state of Maryland, you must be able to prove you have insurance. The Old Line state requires its drivers to carry $30,000 of bodily injury insurance for one person and $60,000 per accident. A driver must carry at least $15,000 for property damage insurance. You must also carry $2,500 for personal injury protection, although you may have the option of waving that fee if you select a limited PIP option.
What if I am Hit by an Uninsured Accident?
Drivers in the state of Maryland are required to carry a certain amount of insurance to cover their own medical expenses if they are hit by an uninsured driver. If you are hit by a driver who is not insured or if you are a victim of a hit and run accident, your insurance company is required by law to lower your deductible to $250. You may also want to discuss the possibility of suing the other driver with your attorney.
How Much Will I Pay an Attorney?
Personal injury attorneys generally work on a contingency basis. This means that they will take a percentage of the settlement that is given to you by the insurance company. You will normally not have to pay upfront.
Debunking Some Real Estate Myths
I have a real estate broker so I donâ€™t need a lawyer.
A real estate broker is paid to close deals, not to look out for your interests. They are not qualified to offer legal advice and may not be too concerned about the finer details of your contract. Legal advice from an experienced real estate attorney protects your interests and helps avoid significant issues down the road.
Real estate attorneys are too expensive.
The pricing is determined by the firm you choose, but there are many quality real estate attorneys that perform basic real estate services like title searches, contract reviews, and closings for very reasonable fees. In any case, it is much more affordable then ending up in costly litigation due to issues that were easily avoidable.
Lawyers just complicate the process.
A good real estate attorney should actually make your transaction go more smoothly. We reduce the chances of last-second surprises that delay or disrupt your transaction by doing our due-diligence up front.
