    It is not possible to give you an accurate answer with the information you provided. When valuing a case you need to look at liability( in Maryland contributory negligence), the amount, quality and kind of medical treatment, the jurisdiction (where can suit be brought if necessary), the plaintiff (will he or she be sympathetic, etc), the defendant, the insurance company your dealing with, how well injuries can be established ,etc. What I can say is that trying to do it yourself is almost...

    It will be difficult to pursue this case after two years, but not impossible. First, although you probably already know this, you should have gotten an attorney immediately after the collision. All tractors involved in tractor trailer accidents are automatically inspected by DOT for safety violations. Also, they all contain the equivalent of a "black box" that will provide information on how fast the truck was going, when it hit the brakes, etc. This information would need to be downloaded by...

    Answering your question takes more information than you have provided. I would want to know whether a CT scan was taken at the emergency room, what follow up treatment you received, what symptoms you had and still have. When I have a client with a mild concussion (also know as a mild TBI or traumatic brain injury), I make sure they see a neurologist and usually have them see a neuropsychologist before I even consider settlement. Assuming the CT scan (the gold standard for brain bleeds) is...

    I need a few more facts. If you are not an excluded driver (specifically listed as not covered), and you were driving then you are probably not covered on that policy. If you are not excluded, you are probably covered. If you were not driving (the carjacker was at the wheel), you are probably covered. Also, do you live with your mom? If not, and you were driving with her permission or were not driving you are probably covered. Also, if you have your own insurance or a relative in your household...

    You should consult an attorney for your injuries. Your friend is responsible whether he went off the road to avoid a deer or was drunk. If you lie and say you were driving you will also need a criminal lawyer. Do not lie. You can still testify your friend went off the road to avoid a deer.

    Adding to the other answers, when you rent a vehicle you tell the rental agency whether or not you have insurance. If you say no, they will require you to purchase their coverage which should have PIP. If you have your own coverage, unless you waived PIP, you have coverage under your own vehicle. A rental is considered a temporary replacement for your vehicle so your coverage stays in affect for the rental. Good luck.

    This may be controlled by the boulevard rule. If the lights are out, the vehicle on the "main " road has the right of way and would be the favored vehicle. The vehicle on the side road would be the unfavored vehicle that must yield to the right of way. The question will be which vehicle was your vehicle. As a passenger, you may have a claim no matter which vehicle you are in. Unfortunately, the police get it wrong frequently. You or your attorney should call the officer (or his supervisor if...

    If you saw the object come from the truck you can report it to the police. You could also file a complaint with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (you can do it on line at usdot.gov.). Your insurance should cover as a comprehensive claim. Many glass claims have little or no deductible and a comprehensive claim does not affect your rates. If your insurance doesn't cover or your deductible is high and the police will not help, you could file a Small Claims Action in the District...

    The answer will depend on a number of factors including whether you saw the ice before you fell, how long the ice had been on the parking lot, where the ice was on the parking lot, whether there were safer area to walk that you were aware of, whether others had slipped on the parking lot before you. Slip and falls are difficult cases, but with the right set of facts can be won. I would also want to know how serious the injuries were, your age, whether drugs or alcohol were involved. I have...

    If the Sheriff will not help, write a letter to the County Commissioner President explaining the danger. Copy the School Board President, the Commissioner from your district, the Sheriff and the local paper (the Independent or the Enterprise), and then watch how fast something gets done.
