Is work reimbursement supposed to be included in a personal injury settlement?

Answered 3 years and 10 months ago by attorney Mr. Jason Ostendorf   |   1 Answer   |  Legal Topics: Personal Injury
As a personal injury lawyer in Baltimore, Maryland, I can provide guidance.  It seems you are worried that your attorney is attempting to structure your settlement in such a way that benefits his fee reimbursement improperly.  The merits of your concerns depend on the nature of your case.  If the case is a worker's compensation case, then the lawyer might not be able to apply his fee percentage to amounts for lost wages.  On the other hand, if it is not a worker's comp case, and instead is just a garden variety personal injury claim, then there is most likely nothing wrong with the lawyer including the lost wages in his fee calculation.  In other words, if it is not a worker's comp case, the attorney would take a percentage of the lost wages regardless of whether the amount was in a separate settlement agreement....

I would also be more than happy to discuss this with you if that is easier.  ... Read More

Can I be indicted and sent to jail if there was no evidence?

It would be a very stupid police officer who did not give you your Miranda rights. You would not be charged unless they have some evidence that you committed a crime. You need to speak to a criminal defense attorney.

To have a viable personal injury case worth prosecuting, in addition to being the victim of negligence or wrongful intentional contact you have to suffer damages.  If you were merely exposed to an infection but did not contract it and it did not harm you, then you would not have a personal injury case worth pursuing.

Did you notify your insurance carrier? You have "uninsured motorist" benefits if you had auto insurance at the time of the accident, but you had the responsibility of notifying them about what was going on in order to secure their involvement. If you did not have insurance, and if the other party had none, you are left with only pursuing the other party for the money. I cannot in an email describe all that is involved in collecting a judgment from an individual. You should have used an attorney.... Read More

can I sue if I passed out?

Answered 6 years and 6 months ago by attorney John Joseph Ratkowitz, Esq.   |   1 Answer   |  Legal Topics: Personal Injury
You should contact a Maryland workers compensation attorney. He will provide you with a free consultation and advise you what your rights are. I disagree with the conclusion that your injuries weren't work-related. They would never happen if you did not have to report to work and be on your feet. I think when you speak to a local workers compensation attorney he will tell you that any cause of action (beyond the workers compensation claim) against the employer will be barred, but that does not mean that you have to accept their decision on the workers compensation claim. Please note that by attempting to answer your question, I am not acting as your attorney. I will do nothing further to protect or preserve your interests in the absence of any additional discussion with you about this matter. John Ratkowitz, Esq.

What should I do if someone who is uninsured hit me?

Answered 6 years and 6 months ago by attorney Bruce Elliott Goodman   |   1 Answer   |  Legal Topics: Personal Injury
The court date to which the officer was referring was the traffic court date. This has nothing to do with your injury claim. If the person who hit you has no insurance you should be covered for your injuries under your uninsured motorist coverage in your own automobile insurance policy.
