Maryland Personal Injury Settlements — The Process
Review/Determination Of Rights
To begin the process of pursuing a Baltimore injury settlement, you need to consult with an attorney knowledgeable about personal injury. Our attorneys review the facts of your case to determine whether you are entitled to compensation. If we believe you are entitled to compensation, you can decide whether to move forward with a personal injury suit or claim.
Retaining Legal Services
Once you decide to make a personal injury claim, the attorney-client relationship is formed. A contingency fee retainer agreement is agreed upon and signed. The agreement specifies and confirms that you pay no fees or expenses unless we obtain a recovery for you. The contingency fee enables you to obtain experienced representation without worrying about out-of-pocket expenses.
If Engel Law Group P.C. is unable to negotiate a fair and reasonable settlement with the responsible party, we proceed with litigation and present your case in court. Depending on circumstances and if needed, we employ professional experts to document your claim and establish the at-fault party’s liability.
The litigation and settlement stages, and necessary steps required, vary from case to case — things may go quickly or may take time. However, we keep you apprised of the status of your claim as issues develop and matters resolve.
The personal injury law firm of Engel Law Group P.C. reviews in detail any and all settlement offers with you, but you decide whether to accept or reject offers. Although our fee is based on the recovery of damages, you still make all decisions about settlements. At your claim’s conclusion, we only get paid if we successfully secure compensation for your injuries. Whenever possible, we seek to maximize the compensation our clients receive.
