Suffering a Personal Injury? Perhaps a Maryland and Virginia Personal Injury Attorney Can Help

By: Pels Anderson


Traffic is heavy around Washington D.C. This often results in traffic accidents occurring on a daily basis. While many of these accidents are minor, others cause serious injury to drivers and passengers sometimes, through no fault of their own. However, traffic accidents are not the only causes of injury to people who live in Maryland and Virginia. People are often injured through the negligence of others when visiting businesses, walking down the street and even buying certain products. Injuries that occur through the negligence of others are called personal injuries, and can result not only in serious injuries but, also high medical bills, lost time at work, and even permanent disabilities that can affect the rest of your life, both financially and as to the quality of living.
When you are injured due to someone else's negligence, you would expect that person to step up and admit their mistake and do whatever they can to help you get the medical care you need and get back on your feet. Unfortunately, while many people do regret actions that cause other people injury, their insurance companies, urge them to deny responsibility to keep from paying out on personal injury claims, which is why it is often necessary to hire a lawyer who is licensed to be a Virginia and Maryland personal injury attorney, to help you get the financial relief that you need.
What Constitutes A Personal Injury
A Personal Injury is injury to body, mind, or emotions caused by the deliberate actions or the negligence of others. Personal injuries include:



  • Accidents at work due to improper safety measures or employers negligence


  • Medical and dental accidents causing injury or increased pain.


  • Accidents in businesses due to negligence


  • Traffic accidents


  • Defective products


  • Assault


  • Intentional or accidental emotional distress


What You May Be Entitled To If You Suffer A Personal Injury
If you suffer one of the above injuries and that injury is incurred by no fault or little fault of your own, you may be entitled to recover the cost of your medical bills, time missed from work, and even for pain and suffering. The more at fault the other party is, the more you will be able to recover. However, in most cases, insurance companies for the other party are reluctant to pay you for the injury you suffered and may refuse to pay no matter how deserving you may be. In such cases hiring a Maryland and Virginia personal injury lawyer can help you collect the money you and your family are entitled to.
How a Personal Injury Attorney Can Help
A Maryland and Virginia personal injury attorney is trained not only in personal injury law and understands all the nuances of that law, but know how to deal with those reluctant insurance companies to get you the money you deserve. In most cases, these attorneys work on a contingency basis, meaning that you don't pay anything until your claim is settled and your case is won. Once you receive your settlement the Virginia and Maryland personal injury lawyer will then collect their pay. The advantages hiring one of these attorneys can give you includes:


  • They can get you the full amount of money you are entitled to


  • Hiring an attorney normally results in faster settlements that you are likely to get on your own.


  • You case is either settled or pleaded in a professional manner that allows the jury to clearly understand what injuries and hardships you suffered at the hands of someone else.


Studies indicate that most injured people who hire a personal injury attorney end up collecting more money than those who try and deal with insurance companies or businesses all on their own.
