Filing an Accident Lawsuit in Maryland
If you were injured due to the negligent actions of a business or individual, you may be able to recover compensation. However, this is a complex process with numerous “moving parts” and strict legal requirements.
Due to the complexity of the rules and procedures for filing a lawsuit in Bel Air South, it is in your best interests to hire a competent and tested attorney to guide you through the process. Your attorney can handle filing all legal documents, deal with insurance adjusters for you, evaluate insurance coverage, advise you on various legal strategies, compile and analyze key evidence, locate and interview eyewitnesses to your accident, identify strategies to increase the value of your claim, and make sure that your legal rights are protected throughout all points of the process.
In order to prevail in your lawsuit, you must generally prove that the other party or parties were “negligent,” or careless, leading to your accident and resulting injuries. Depending on the case, negligence may be proven using evidence such as expert medical opinions, maintenance and inspection logs, e-mail records and text messages, photographs of the accident site, surveillance footage from security cameras, medical records and lab results, photographs of your injuries, and other sources of information.
In addition to proving that the other party was at fault for your accident, you must also file your lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires. The Maryland personal injury statute of limitations generally permits up to three years from the date of injury in which to file a claim, though it is advantageous to act sooner for the following reasons:
- Acting quickly reduces the risk that evidence will be destroyed.
- It also reduces the risk that eyewitnesses will misremember events (or become impossible to locate).
- There will be time to build a stronger, more detailed case.
- If your claim succeeds, you will receive your compensation that much sooner.
