Referring Your Personal Injury Case to Our Experienced Maryland Attorneys

Our Maryland personal injury attorneys have extensive experience in many different types of personal injury claims. Our office understands that many cases are complicated and require a specific level of expertise and resources. Your reputation is as important to us as ours is, so you can be assured that our attorneys and staff will dedicate the time and attention to detail necessary.

Trial experience is often a crucial factor when building a personal injury case. While many cases do eventually settle without going to court, a law firm must be willing and prepared to take a case before a judge or jury to maximize their client’s potential compensation. A successful personal injury trial is often time-consuming and expensive. Nonetheless, taking your client’s case to court might be necessary. You want to refer your client to a firm that will not settle for an offer due to a hesitation to try the case.

When a law firm has a reputation of being willing to take cases to trial and is successful, insurance companies and other attorneys are more inclined to settle a case for a reasonable value. When a fair offer is not presented, our law firm is prepared to fight for your client’s just compensation.

Our referral and retainer contracts are fair and conform to the Maryland Rules of Professional Conduct along with all other ethical and professional standards for attorneys. Allowing another firm to handle one of your client’s cases might be difficult. However, at Rice, Murtha & Psoras, our attorneys and staff are committed to providing a benefit to your firm and client. Furthermore, your level of involvement is your decision. Our Maryland personal injury attorneys will work with your firm.

Our Maryland Personal Injury Attorneys Will Evaluate Your Client’s Case

No two personal injury cases are the same and every injured plaintiff has had a unique experience. Our Maryland personal injury attorneys have a broad range of experience working with insurance companies and evaluating claims. A critical step in any personal injury case is determining a claim’s value. This must be done before negotiating with an insurance provider or taking a case to court.

Properly valuing a personal injury claim requires experience, knowledge, and resources. When your case is referred to our firm, we will thoroughly review all aspects to estimate your client’s reasonable damages. This includes working with our medical experts to determine the extent of their injuries, their likely prognosis, and whether they will require medical treatment in the future. Our firm will also consult with financial experts if your client is anticipated to lose income or if their ability to earn a living has been diminished.

Calculating damages requires dedication and work. However, when valuing your client’s non-economic damages, such as mental anguish, physical pain, or emotional suffering, our attorneys also rely on past experiences, previous awards, and an understanding of what is reasonable in Maryland courts.

Once your client knows what their claim is worth, they will have the ability to make an informed decision regarding a settlement offer or pursuing the case in court.

Experienced Maryland Personal Injury Lawyers Taking Referrals

The attorneys at Rice, Murtha & Psoras have ample experience handling all types of personal injury cases.  Many personal injury claims involve complex topics, often because of the injuries or medical conditions the victim suffered.  Our lawyers are well-versed in the following types of injuries:

Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and other non-traumatic brain injuries brought about through chemical exposure are often complex.  Our lawyers have experience fighting these kinds of cases and showing jurors how the injury formed and why the defendant is responsible for these injuries.  Especially when these injuries have complex causes, such as in cerebral palsy and birth injury cases, our lawyers’ experience and understanding are invaluable tools.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Similarly, spinal cord injuries are often complex and require some experience and knowledge to discuss the case with a lay jury.  Our lawyers understand the ramifications of injuries to the C4 or C5 vertebra and their potential to cause quadriplegia, and we know that even minor car accidents and traumatic injuries can cause serious or long-lasting injuries through whiplash and low back injuries.

Nerve Damage

Many surgical procedures result in nerve damage through a few possible mechanisms.  the first and most obvious potential cause of nerve damage is through severing a nerve, which is often the basis of a surgical error claim.  Nerve injuries and partial paralysis can also occur during a childbirth case, where misuse of forceps and other tools could cause injury to the facial nerve, leading to facial paralysis.  Lastly, positioning injuries from cramped or bent limbs could cause partial paralysis, numbness, and nerve damage.  Our attorneys have experience that will help us handle these kinds of claims.

Cerebral Palsy and Birth Injuries

Our attorneys can take referral cases from divorce or child custody cases dealing with children with cerebral palsy (CP).  Many parents discover their newborns or young infants suffer from cerebral palsy, but they do not investigate further the cause of those injuries.  Many people think children are born with CP, but many of these conditions actually result from injuries sustained during childbirth.

Damages for Personal Injury Cases in Maryland

Our attorneys work to get full damages for our clients.  Many people settle for insurance claims when they are injured without realizing that an insurance company often pays only a portion of the damages you could be entitled to in a lawsuit.  First, the damages for medical expenses and lost wages might be paid only in part, and second, the damages for pain and suffering may be entirely unavailable in an insurance claim.

If your client suffered serious injuries, they may require surgery, emergency medical care, medical imaging, follow-up visits, rehabilitation, and mental health counseling to deal with the effects of an injury.  Our lawyers can work to get them full compensation to cover these damages so that the defendant is responsible for the full costs the victim incurred.

Our lawyers also fight to get our clients damages for their lost wages.  If a parent or spouse is injured and unable to go to work to support their family, a lawsuit might be necessary to get the family the compensation they need.  These damages are often simple enough to calculate for past lost wages, but to project future lost wages, you may need to use a financial expert to project how long the victim could have continued working and how much earning capacity they lost because of the injury.  Our lawyers are familiar with these kinds of damage projects and calculations.

Pain and suffering damages are often confusing to many injury victims.  Our lawyers understand that these damages reflect the physical pain, emotional distress, and mental anguish the victim faced.  Our attorneys work to argue for substantial damages by providing the jury with evidence of the victim’s pain and discomfort and their reduced enjoyment in various activities they used to love.  Our lawyers can help your client figure out what their case is worth and fight their case in court if necessary.

Damages for the loss of a loved one in a wrongful death lawsuit may involve some of these costs, but other damages often come from odd places.  Our lawyers work to get compensation for funeral expenses, burial costs, lost companionship, lost household services, lost investments, lost inheritances, and other damages in a wrongful death case.
