About Personal Injuries in Maryland
What is a personal injury case? A personal injury case is a legal claim that one person brings when they suffer harm from an accident or injury that someone else might be legally responsible for causing. A personal injury claim is a civil action brought in court that seeks to find another claimed person liable to pay for your injuries. There are two outcomes of a claim and that is a verdict is entered into in court or a settlement is reached outside of court. Settlement is how the majority of personal injury claims get settled. They often involve negotiation, followed by an agreement in writing that both parties then sign.
Personal injury claims are complicated. There can be many steps that need to be done from filing paperwork with the court to collecting the evidence needed to present in court. Laws differ from state to state and even county to county in Maryland. There are also many different types of personal injury claims that can be brought. Some include product liability, slip and fall, car accidents and medical malpractice. Don’t fret over the details. Allow a Cecil County personal injury lawyer who is knowledgeable of the legal landscape handle your case.
Calculating Your Personal Injury Claim
Maryland is one of a few contributory state’s in the country. This means that when calculating fault and damages for accidents if you, as the person bringing the suit, is even one percent at fault, you are barred from recovery. This is in comparison to a comparative liability state that awards the plaintiff the percentage of damages that they were not at fault for the accident. So, if the court found the plaintiff was thirty percent at fault, the most they could recover would be seventy percent of the damages sought.
