Plaintiffs in Maryland must overcome the state’s tough contributory negligence standard. This rule means that if the victim shared even the smallest amount of fault for their injury, they cannot collect damages in a verdict. We counter the unwarranted arguments of defendants, their lawyers and insurers in actions that concern:
Under Maryland law, most injury victims have three years from the incident date to file a lawsuit. However, if you’re suing a state government entity, notice of the claim must be submitted within one year. In matters where it might take time for someone to understand the true extent of the harm (a cancer-causing product, for example), the clock runs from the date a reasonable person would have discovered the condition. For children and individuals who are not competent, the statute of limitations is paused until they turn 18 or regain their capacity to handle legal matters.
An injury victim can collect damages as reimbursement for medical costs, income that wasn’t earned while they were out of work and other expenses stemming from the defendant’s negligence. Compensation is also available for pain and suffering. We take a close look at your case and assess what type of reimbursement you can expect in a judgment or settlement. As attorneys with decades of combined experience in this field, we are aware of what plaintiffs in similar situations received as well as the impact of statutory damage caps on specific types of claims.
Should someone’s negligence or willful act cause a fatality, surviving family members and the victim’s estate can sue for damages. Plaintiffs can obtain reimbursement for funeral costs, wages that the decedent would have earned and the medical bills that accumulated prior to the wrongful death. In cases of fatal accidents, our firm presses for compensation by bringing wrongful death and survival actions.
