No, you are not required to hire an attorney. Anyone who has been injured in a Maryland car crash can negotiate a settlement without any legal help. Whether or not the settlement you receive will be adequate depends on the insurance company with whom you are working.
Theoretically, the insurance company will take an objective look at your injuries and offer you a settlement based directly on your medical bills. In reality, insurance adjusters often lowball the victims in order to save their own company money.
When you negotiate on your own, you may very well fall victim a second time— this time to a stingy insurance adjuster who is intent on minimizing your compensation.
When you have a skilled Maryland car accident attorney on your side, you are more likely to receive a favorable settlement. Your attorney knows the tricks of the trade that insurance adjusters attempt, and how to use that knowledge in your favor.
For example, an experienced attorney knows how to get the necessary evidence that will prove:
- That you were not responsible for the Maryland auto accident in which you were injured;
- The extent of your injuries and their monetary cost;
- Any future medical bills that you expect and their estimated cost; and
- The reality and extent of your pain and suffering, which will further increase your compensation.
The right attorney will know what your injury is worth and will fight for that compensation, holding out and even going to court to ensure that you receive a fair settlement. So, who is the right attorney for you?
