  • How Can a Car Accident Attorney Help?
    Hiring a car accident lawyer ensures that you will not be taken advantage of by the insurance company. Some accidents involve serious injuries and major damages, raising the stakes and making representation that much more important. A car accident lawyer can help to ensure that all of the proper paperwork is filed in a timely manner in your case. Having a lawyer also means that you do not have to talk to or deal with the insurance company at all. In addition, your lawyer can answer all of your legal questions and concerns, return to the scene of the accident to investigate the accident further, put together a stronger case against the at-fault driver and most importantly, ensure that you are fairly compensated for your injuries. Insurance companies are notorious for attempting to settle cases with injured parties for far below their actual value. Having an attorney on your side can ensure that this does not happen to you. Additionally, handling these cases and litigating them properly can become quite costly. If you have representation, typically the costs associated are borne by the attorney until the case resolves, at which point, said attorney will be reimbursed if there is a recovery.
  • When Should I Contact a Car Accident Attorney?
    If you are involved in a car accident that causes you to seek medical attention in any way, you should contact an attorney for representation. When someone is injured in a car accident in Maryland their claim is controlled by a three-year statute of limitations, meaning the injured party has three years to settle their claim or to file a lawsuit. For this reason, among others, it is important that you contact an attorney as soon after the accident as possible. Additionally, the sooner you seek representation, the sooner your attorney can prevent any unnecessary recorded statements that could potentially hurt your case in the future.
  • How Much Does a Car Accident Attorney Cost?
    At SG Legal Group we handle all car accident cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that we do not charge you anything, until, and if, we recover compensation on your behalf. If we are successful, our fee is a percentage of the recovery we secure. This percentage typically ranges from 33 & 1/3% to 40%.
  • How to Speak to an Insurance Company During a Car Accident Claim
    As an injured party, it is a smart idea not to speak to any insurance companies until you contact an experienced personal injury attorney. Your attorney will be able to advise you on how and when to speak to any insurance companies. By taking this advice you will protect yourself and prevent yourself from being lured to make a mistake that could drastically impact the value of your case.

Visitors

Visitors who want to enter the U.S. temporarily for business (B-1 category) or tourism/ pleasure (B-2 category) or a combination of both purposes must obtain a B-1/B-2 nonimmigrant visa.

Some foreign nationals of certain countries may qualify for a limited 90-day entry with ESTA under the Visa Waiver Program. All other foreign nationals will need to attend a visa interview abroad at a U.S. Consulate or Embassy before they can enter the U.S. as visitors. Canadians are visa exempt and do not need a visa to enter the U.S.
