Q. I was hit in a car accident. Lawyer says I can only get $30K bcuz that was other driver’s policy. Is this true?
A: Check with the policy of your auto insurance of the policy of the insurance of the car you were driving in for the underinsured policy limit - it only kicks in for amounts in excess of 30K (for instance if your underinsured limit is 100K, you are able to collect a max of 70k from your policy under Maryland law - subject to ensuring that you follow statutorily required notification steps). Also, sue the other driver and obtain a judgment. You never know what the defendant's profession is which may put the defendant in a position to have to find a way to satisfy the judgement. In any event, good luck.
Q. Can my state settlement be intercepted
A: Your settlement can be reduced (or 'intercepted') by any liens that have been given to your lawyer to honor before your case settles.
Q. How long I have to get a lawyer after car accident in MD
A: There is no hard and fast rule but the earlier the better to protect your legal interests. Also, keep in mind that consultations for personal injury auto accidents are free given lawyers work on a contingent fee basis (no recovery, no fee).
