3 Reasons You May Need an Upper Marlboro Lawyer

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident because of someone else’s negligence, this blog post is for you.  Whether you are in Upper Marlboro anywhere else in PG County, know this:  It is crucial that you – at the very least – speak with a PG County Personal Injury Lawyer.  Here’s why:

The Insurance Company Probably Doesn’t Want to Give You A Fair Settlement

The insurance business is a billion-dollar industry – and that is especially true when it comes to those policies that are in place for the purpose of protecting a company or person in the event of an injury.  However, those policies offer protection for the at-fault party – not the injured.  The adjusters are there to determine settlement amounts for the injured. They have a special job, which is to keep the payouts as small as possible.  And it’s even better for the insurance company if they don’t pay out anything at all.  That’s why you hear about denied claims and lowball settlement offers, even when the injured truly deserved a fair settlement offer.

Injuries Can Be Difficult to Manage

If only it were as simple as healing from your injuries and moving on.   Unfortunately, there are several factors that directly impact your life, including missed work, lost wages, lost future wages, pain and suffering, loss of quality life, and so much more.

It may seem, initially, as if everything is manageable, but in many cases, a lawyer needs to step in and handle the legalities surrounding personal injury claims.

 

Different “ Pools “ of  Available Insurance Monies Available When injured by a Negligent Driver

 

In this Tri- “State/ Territory” Region Which Constitutes the D.C. Metro Area, there are various “pools” of insurance available to injured people.  They are not the same throughout the region  and also vary depending on vehicle ownership and family circumstances. Some of these “pools” on insurance  have to be paid back out of the liability settlement ; others do not. Some depend on where the injured person resides, other depend upon where the collision occurs.  Every jurisdiction has a type of “no-fault” auto insurance,  but each type has different legal  rules governing its availability  and how such availability  must be   coordinated  with health insurance and liability coverages. Frankly,  when it comes to the varying laws which could be applicable in this  metro region regarding compensation to injured people ,  we have the most complex  laws in the country governing such matters.  We even have special rules and procedures governing  how compensation may be obtained for injuries  caused by negligent  diplomatic drivers  who are operating vehicles owned by foreign governments.   Attempting to navigate these rules without guidance from an experienced and knowledgeable personal injury lawyer is like navigating a ship in a storm without any training or experiencing in doing so.
