Portner & Shure Law Firm Serving Maryland, Virginia & Washington D.C.


When you've been involved in a motor vehicle accident, it's not at all uncommon for the other driver's insurance company to make you an offer very soon after the accident, and before you retain an attorney. Frequently, the insurance company will offer an amount to pay medical bills you incur within a month of the accident plus a modest amount for your pain and suffering. The offers generally range from $500 to $2,000.

In Maryland it is mandatory for all drivers to carry car insurance by a state recognized provider. In order to protect yourself and others, it is required that your policy covers a minimum of 15K for property damage, 30K for bodily injuries, and at least 60K for the coverage of two or more inpiduals. While one is forming an insurance plan, Maryland offers something called PIP, this stands for personal injury protection. Now what exactly does PIP do? Personal injury protection covers medical bills for any injuries you may have obtained during an accident.
