Medical Bills & Lost Wages
In connection with a personal injury or wrongful death claim or lawsuit in Maryland, there is sometimes a distinction drawn between two types of losses:
- Economic losses, including medical expenses and lost wages
- Noneconomic losses, namely pain and suffering or loss of companionship
In many cases, the side of the defense will fight to minimize or limit payment of compensation for noneconomic losses. However, economic losses can usually be documented quite precisely. To maximize recovery after a personal injury, work with an experienced, aggressive, proven-effective plaintiff’s lawyer who will fight for your right to full, fair compensation for economic losses as well as reasonable compensation for noneconomic losses.Your Own Car Insurance in Maryland Likely Includes Personal Injury Protection (PIP) to Cover Medical Bills and Lost Wages
Whether or not you recover compensation from a negligent party or that party’s insurer(s), you may have personal injury protection (PIP) available under your own car insurance. In Maryland, the PIP on your auto insurance may cover your medical bills and 85 percent of your lost income, up to your policy limit.
