    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...

    It is not too late, but hire an attorney ASAP. You are correct that an attorney would advise you not to speak to the other drivers insurance adjuster. Lots of people do exactly what you did so most attorneys are use to this situation. If you were hurt, you must get treatment to prove your claim. The first thing you should worry about is your health. An attorney can talk to the adjuster for you and is better at discussing things without hurting your claim. Insurance companies are never your...

    You have a lawyer and should sit down with that lawyer and go over the options. Have the lawyer put them in writing to document for both you and the lawyer what is being done and why. What you are saying doesn't make complete sense which is why you need to meet with the lawyer. Ordinarily, especially with a serious injury, I would advise my client to pursue workers' comp first. Workers' comp are guaranteed benefits and medicals for life. Rarely would I want the client to give that up. In those...

    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...

    Your daughter and her son may have a claim for medical negligence. Consider taking your grandson to a plastic surgeon that specializes in reconstruction. You may want to make sure the doctor is not affiliated with the first doctor or hospital. Your number one goal should be the wellbeing of the child. You can also start preserving evidence for a malpractice case if there is a deformity or he has problems. Take notes (start a journal), take pictures, if you take him to a plastic surgeon make...

    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.

    You should immediately schedule an appointment with your attorneys. There are things that can be done to help or speed up the process. Although I like to avoid them, there are loan companies that will provide clients that have good cases with money/loans. The cost is very high (ie a $2000 advance will cost twice that or more to pay back). Also, ask about filing suit now,, before treatment is done, to speed the process up when treatment is done. Often a client has lifelong treatment needs so you...

    The short answer is yes. The other driver's insurance company will do and use what it can to decrease any claim you may have. They will use the fact that you did not go to the hospital against you. You are pregnant so what can be done with your pain and determining the extent of injuries is limited. That means you may not know how badly you are hurt or whether your injuries are lifelong or even if the accident affected your baby until after the baby is born. The insurance company will use that...
