Maryland Car Accident FAQs

What should I do if hurt in a car accident?

Most importantly, never admit that the accident was your fault. If someone is injured, call an ambulance. Contact the police department so they can come to the scene. Unless an ambulance takes you away, you should never leave the scene of the accident. If you are able, take pictures of the scene and get contact information from other people who saw the accident happen.

Who should I talk to after an accident?

You should talk to the police about your accident once they come to the scene. You can also call your insurance company to let them know that you were in an accident. It is best to call a lawyer as soon as possible, because the outcome of a case depends on what happens in the short time after that accident happens.

What is my case worth?

Each case is different. How much your case is worth depends on what happened, how it happened and how bad your injuries are. Experienced lawyers won’t know the answer to this question without knowing all of the facts of your case.

Should I talk to the other driver’s insurance company?

No. It is important not to talk to the other driver’s insurance companies right after an accident. Leave that to your attorney.

Should I see a doctor?

Yes. Even if you don’t know how badly you are hurt, it is best to visit a doctor’s office or a hospital to make sure that you are not severely injured. After an accident, many people are in shock and are not aware of the injuries they received in a car accident.

What do I do if insurance companies don’t believe I have been injured?

This is normal. Insurance companies will do their best to reduce the amount of money that they will pay you. Leave this to your lawyer. Lawyers know how to deal with insurance companies, and they know the methods that insurance companies use to pay as little as possible.

What papers do I need to get?

Get a copy of the police report. It will be helpful to your attorney for many reasons. Keep a copy of any medical records from your treatment and diagnosis. Keep copies of any bills that you get for repairs made after the accident. If you have suffered injuries because of a car accident, keep any and all bills and notes about your treatment and condition.
