What personal injury insurance benefits am I eligible for?

To ensure you receive the full amount of compensation possible, it is important to fully understand all of the Maryland personal injury insurance benefits that are available.

As part of your settlement, you should receive full coverage for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Under the “Maryland collateral source rule”, the insurance company does not get to discount the amount of your personal injury settlement just because you had other sources of coverage for your medical bills or lost wages.

Our Baltimore personal injury lawyers have been handling insurance claims for over 50 years, and are experienced in maximizing your recovery and ensuring you receive all of the benefits possible.

Personal Injury Settlement Benefits

While specific benefits differ by state and and insurance policy, some of the personal injury insurance coverage you may be entitled to receive include:

  • MedPay or Medical Payment coverage is often available after an accident or personal injury, to provide immediate money for lost income and medical bills. Certain deadlines and notice requirements may apply, so it is important to take steps to preserve your right to receive this money.
  • Treatment Coverage: You have the right to choose your own doctor and to obtain all of the medical treatment that you need, now and in the future
  • Accident Injury Settlement: If an accident or personal injury is not your fault, you are entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering caused by the other party’s negligence.

How much money will I get for my Maryland personal injury settlement?

A personal injury settlement in Maryland should provide full reimbursement and compensation for all damages that resulted from the other parties negligence, including:

  • Lost Wages
  • Medical Bills
  • Property Damage
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Permanent Personal Injury

The amount of money paid to settle a Maryland personal injury claim will depend on the extent of the injury and treatment, as well as the nature of any permanent disability or other long-term impact that results from the incident.

Our Baltimore personal injury law firm has 50 years of experience negotiating settlements with insurance companies and litigating Maryland personal injury lawsuits in court to force insurance carriers to pay fair compensation. Our lawyers will make sure all aspects of your damages are documented, and provide you with the information to properly evaluate whether any personal injury settlement offer provides fair compensation under Maryland law.

What are pain and suffering damages in a personal injury claim?

While it is usually clear cut to determine the amount of damages you are entitled to receive for lost wages, medical bills, property damage or other “economic losses”, pain and suffering damages will include compensation for everything else, such as:

  • Physical pain and discomfort as a result of the injuries;
  • Discomfort and disruption to your everyday life;
  • Inability to participate in the usual activities and events you engaged in before the incident

Under Maryland personal injury law, pain and suffering is factored into the amount of money paid for “non-economic” damages. This includes everything that is not an actual financial loss caused by the incident.

Since there is no exact formula applied in Maryland to determine pain and suffering damages in a personal injury claim, this is something that must be negotiated with the insurance company and our lawyers will present evidence to the insurance company to establish the full impact the personal injury had on your life to maximize the amount of money received for a Maryland personal injury settlement.

Ultimately, if an out-of-court settlement is not reached, the amount of pain and suffering under Maryland law will be decided by a judge or jury at trial. Therefore, our lawyers will make sure your case is properly documented and the adjuster recognizes all of the evidence that will be presented at trial if they fail to make a fair offer to settle your personal injury case.

What factors are considered when negotiating personal injury settlements?

There are many factors considered by our Baltimore personal injury lawyers when determining settlement demands. The final settlement amount will be based on what a judge or jury is likely to grant at trial if a settlement is not reached. Therefore, Saiontz & Kirk’s experience litigating Maryland personal injury cases puts our lawyers at an advantage over the insurance adjuster when negotiating the largest settlement possible.

During settlement negotiations, it is important to provide documentation to support each of the factors a jury would use to evaluate damages, including:

  • the severity of the injury
  • the amount of time needed to recover
  • the severity of residual or permanent injury
  • the level of disruption the injury causes in the victim’s life
  • the emotional trauma suffered
  • the impact the physical injuries had on the overall well being

Every injury is different, and before talking to the insurance company you should have an experienced Maryland personal injury attorney looking out for you. Our Baltimore personal injury lawyers provide free consultations and case evaluations with no obligation to hire our law firm to pursue your case. However, you should contact Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. before you start negotiating with the insurance company.
