How to File a Personal Injury Claim

After an accident, you may be wondering how to file a personal injury claim. While you can file a claim on your own, it is highly recommended that you consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer who can guide you through the process.

Here is a general overview of the process of filing a personal injury claim:

  • Seek Medical Attention: After an accident, it is important that you seek medical attention immediately, even if you do not think you are injured. Some injuries are not immediately apparent, and seeing a doctor can ensure that you receive the necessary treatment. Additionally, seeing a doctor can help establish a link between your accident and your injuries, which can be crucial to your personal injury claim.
  • Document the Accident: After an accident, it can be difficult to remember the details of what happened. That is why it is important to document the accident as soon as possible. Take photos of the accident scene, your injuries, and any property damage. If there were any witnesses to the accident, ask for their contact information.
  • Report the Accident: If you were injured in a car accident, slip and fall accident, or other type of accident, you will need to report the accident to the appropriate authorities. You should also report the accident to your insurance company. However, it is important to keep in mind that you should not give a recorded statement to the insurance company until you have spoken to an attorney.
  • Collect Evidence: In order to win your personal injury case, you will need to present evidence that proves the other party’s negligence. Evidence can include photos of the accident scene, your injuries, and property damage; surveillance footage; medical records; accident reports; and more. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you gather the necessary evidence to prove your claim.
  • File a Claim: After you have gathered evidence, you will need to file a personal injury claim with the appropriate insurance company. The insurance company will then review your claim and either accept it and offer you a settlement, or deny it. It is important to keep in mind that the insurance company is not on your side and will likely try to pay you as little as possible. That is why it is crucial to have an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side who can negotiate with the insurance company and fight for the maximum compensation you are owed.
  • Settlement Negotiations: If the insurance company offers you a settlement, you will need to decide whether to accept it. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you determine whether the settlement offer is fair and in your best interests. If the settlement offer is too low, your lawyer can negotiate with the insurance company for a higher amount. If the insurance company is unwilling to offer a fair settlement, your lawyer can take your case to court.
  • File a Lawsuit: If the insurance company denies your claim or is unwilling to offer a fair settlement, your lawyer can file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf. The lawsuit will need to be filed within the statute of limitations, which is three years in Maryland. The lawsuit will initiate the legal process, and your lawyer will need to prove that the other party was negligent and that their negligence was a direct cause of your injuries. The other party may try to argue that you were partially at fault for the accident. In Maryland, you can still recover compensation if you were partially at fault for the accident. However, your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault. For example, if you were found to be 20% at fault for the accident, your compensation will be reduced by 20%. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you build a strong case and fight for the maximum compensation you are owed.
  • Settlement Negotiations: Many personal injury cases are resolved in a settlement before they go to court. Your lawyer will negotiate with the other party’s legal team to try to reach a fair settlement. If a settlement is reached, your lawyer will review it to make sure it is in your best interests. If the settlement is fair, your lawyer will recommend that you accept it. If the settlement is too low, your lawyer can negotiate for a higher amount. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you determine whether a settlement is fair and in your best interests.
  • Go to Court: If a settlement cannot be reached, your personal injury case will go to court. Your lawyer will need to present evidence that proves the other party’s negligence and that their negligence was a direct cause of your injuries. A judge or jury will then decide the outcome of your case. It is important to keep in mind that a personal injury lawsuit can be a lengthy and complex process. That is why it is crucial to have an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side who can guide you through the process and fight for your rights.

Filing a personal injury claim can be a complex process. That is why it is crucial to have an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side who can help you navigate the legal process.

The opinions that matter Most

Read our 5-Star Reviews
  • Thank you, Mr. Farmer, and may God bless you in your future endeavors.

    “You and your team have given my family our son back. No amount can adequately compensate for that gift! I can only hope our heart-felt thank-you and 'God bless you' will somehow offset the imbalance.”

  • We received a great outcome and my family was 100% pleased

    “Attorney Farmer helped me and my family through a domestic situation which turned out to be great. His expertise, presentation, and professionalism all worked together and we received a great outcome and my family was 100% pleased. I would highly recommend!”

  • Kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable

    “I couldn’t be happier with the service I received from this law firm. I felt comfortable from the minute I first walked through the door. I had less than two weeks before the expiration of my personal injury filing date and was overwhelmed. My first appointment was with Elizabeth who took my huge stack of papers with a smile and said, “Let me take care of this for you.” Although all of the staff that I encountered were wonderful, my main experience was with Mr. Farmer and Elizabeth who were both kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable. My case was handled professionally and in a timely fashion. My case was recently concluded and I am very happy with the outcome and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to my friends and family in the future. Need a good law firm, no need to look further.”

  • Keeps in touch with you throughout the whole process, and even after your case is over with

    I just recently had James E. Farmer handle my second DUI and I received the best possible outcome I could've wished for. The judge I had could've really laid down the hammer on me but James worked his magic and did an incredible job. He knows what he is talking about and is very humble. He keeps in touch with you throughout the whole process, and even after your case is over with, and he explains everything so you know exactly what is going on. This is my first time hiring James and without a doubt, I would hire him again. He would be the first person I'd call if another legal problem should ever rise-- though I've made a promise to myself to stay away from the law as much as possible. He will be highly recommended to anyone that asks me if I know a great lawyer.

  • A wise choice for anyone pursuing legal justice and/or a defense

    Mr. Farmer and his team were impressive through their work effort and detailed approach in every phase the Civil Court Personal Injury case. They also were responsive to any questions/concerns, supportive and communicated well through out the process. In the end, a satisfactory settlement was achieved. Mr. Farmer would be a wise choice for anyone pursuing legal justice and/or a defense.
