MEDICAL TREATMENT REFERRAL

Providing client referrals to physicians and other licensed medical providers for examination and treatment, if necessary, at accredited health facilities which are familiar with handling accidental injuries.

Some doctors don’t want to treat victims of motor vehicle accidents.

Some doctors do not want to have to give their opinion on what caused the injuries, or go to court. Luckily, many doctors specialize in handling motor vehicle injuries. We can and will refer you for medical treatment if you need it.

No health insurance?

We work with many different providers across the region. These doctors treat traumatic brain injuries as well as other serious injuries.  Our trial lawyers will begin working on the case with an initial consultation.

Many medical providers we work with will hold our client’s bills for payment at settlement time.

This means you will not have to pay out of pocket for any medical treatment. You will simply pay for them out of your personal injury car accident case.

Personal injury protection (PIP) medical benefits are available to most individuals.

PIP is a great benefit for those injured in a car crash.  PIP pays for medical expenses and lost wages up to the limit of the policy.  This is known as no fault insurance. The minimum policy in Maryland is $2500.00. You can qualify for PIP by not waiving the coverage on your policy.

If you were hurt as a passenger, the rules for qualifying for PIP are complicated.  Your own insurance policies, and those of your family members will affect your right to receive PIP benefits.

SETTLEMENT DEMAND & NEGOTIATION

Understanding the nature and tactics of the opponent allows strategic decisions to be made.  Our personal injury law firm can assist with your accident claim.  We will get you all the compensation you may be entitled to.

Insurance adjusters come up with an estimate of what they think your case is worth. Then they try to pay you much lower than that to give up your claim.  We will make sure you get fair compensation for serious injuries.

Luckily, we have the right to file a lawsuit in our courts to fight for your rights before a judge and/or a jury.

Most cases settle prior to trial, and many settle for a fair value without even having to get into the judicial system.

Still, some insurers may refuse to offer you a fair amount to compensate you for your injuries, or will deny that their insured did anything wrong.

The judicial system allows the finder of fact to determine what you’re due for compensation for your injuries under the law.  The finder of fact could be a jury of your peers or a judge.

In this case, a lawsuit will be necessary in order to get justice for your car crash injury.

FILING LAWSUITS & LITIGATING IN COURT

Sometimes, insurance companies do not want to settle your claim.  Sometimes they make a very low offer to settle the case.

We file lawsuits if the insurance company does not make an satisfactory offer to settle your case.

A lawsuit starts with a Complaint.  A personal injury Complaint is a legal document that says the Defendant legally owes you money for hurting you.  We write the Complaint, sign it, and file it with the court.  Then, the court issues a summons to serve on the Defendant.  We hire process servers to locate and serve the Defendant with the Complaint and Summons quickly.

Sometimes the insurance company attempts to settle at this point.  If not, the Defendant then has a lawyer enter his or her appearance in the case.  Defendants usually receive a free lawyer from their insurance company.

Next, the discovery process begins to take form.  Written discovery commences with Interrogatories, Requests for Admissions, Requests for Production of Documents.  After that, lawyers take depositions of the Plaintiff, Defendant and any important witnesses to the case. Discovery is the process of discovering the truth.

This may prompt settlement, and if not, a trial before a judge or jury will take place. The verdict against the Defendant will almost always be paid by the insurance company that wouldn’t settle the case.   Call for a free consultation with Baltimore Auto Accident Lawyer Benjamin Stirling, Esq. and get what you deserve.
