Auto Accidents - Determining When You Can File a Claim & the Statute of Limitations
What does a personal injury attorney do?
The amount of personal injury settlement depends on many factors, and there is no fixed value for any compensation package. The amount settled on depends on factors like age of the claimant, severity of injury, net financial loss, medical expenses incurred, medical prognosis, extent of liability, etc.
There is no minimum or maximum compensation amount limit set by law, since amounts vary greatly from case to case. The following examples give you an idea of the compensation due in cases of personal injury.
A construction company, for example, paid a compensation of $2,000,000, when held liable for the death of a young man caused by unsafe construction. A retail store paid out $1,000,000, when a claimant suffered serious neck injuries when a display fell on her. A nursing home paid $1,000,000 for medical negligence when an Alzheimer's patient was injured due to the absence of a nurse on duty. Injury due to an automobile accident aggravated a victim's previous neck injury, and the he was paid $5,000,000 in compensation.
Lost wages are also considered when settling such cases. The court takes into account the occupation of the claimant, education levels and future prospects when awarding a compensation amount.
It is also important that the plaintiff come across as someone sincere who genuinely needs help, and not an opportunist just waiting to sue due to financial motives. The personal injury settlement amounts are meant to help those in distress get on with life, and not simply a financial "dole".

How to become personal injury attorney?
There are several reasons why it is important to contact a Maryland auto accident lawyer as soon as possible after you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident. One of these is the statute of limitations.
An Ancient Concept
In personal injury law (known in legal terminology as torts), the victim of an accident - whether in a motor vehicle, due to a defective product, or medical malpractice, or because of a second party's negligence or malice - has the right to sue, or bring legal action against the party that caused the injury.
The concept of suing someone for compensation for injury or property loss is an ancient one. In Anglo-Saxon England (prior to the year 1066), an injured party could bring a complaint before a village assembly, or folc-gemot, and argue their case. If the claim was found to have validity, the party responsible for the loss or injury was required to pay a sum of money - known as weregild - to the one who had suffered the injury or loss.
A statute of limitations may also be tolled, or interrupted for a certain period. Tolling may be applied if at the time of the injury, the accident victim was:
o a minor
o mentally incompetent
o involved in a bankruptcy case
Again, tolling is not applicable to all auto accident injury cases.

What is standard personal injury attorney fee?
Rear-end collisions are arguably the most common example of automobile collision that plagues our roads and freeways. The majority of state auto regulations provide for vehicle operators to drive behind cars leading them at a careful distance, or what can be thought adequate distance to stop for the auto in front of you. Consequentially, the driver of the rear-ending car is almost always thought to be responsible from tailgating or quick stops.
There are exceptions to this automatic fault however. Examples include:
· If an operator of another vehicle cuts you off via an unsafe lane change and braking simultaneously
· If the rear-ended vehicle is in the reverse gear shift at the time of the accident
If you find yourself unable to report the collision to the police, be sure to ask for the following from the other person involved: name, address, phone number, license number, license plate number, and the name and policy number of their insurance provider.
Lastly, you should contact an experienced Dallas car accident lawyer. The question of whether you are due compensation can be a difficult one, and the Rasansky Law Firm can provide you a free evaluation to see if you have a valid claim. So don't take the risk!
