Can You Help Me File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Maryland?
When you contact Rice, Murtha & Psoras, an attorney can listen to your situation and determine whether you may have a personal injury claim against one or more parties. You may have a case if certain elements or facts can be proven. the facts that need to be proven revolve around a concept called “negligence,” which is the basis of most personal injury claims. You must prove that you were injured due to the negligent acts of a person or business, which means you will need to show that the defendant acted in a careless way that did not meet reasonable standards.
There are many ways that a person can be negligent, depending on the type of case involved. For example, in a medical malpractice case, negligence might involve failing to order certain tests, or failing to perform a necessary procedure. In slip and fall cases, negligence often involves failure to clean or maintain the property where the accident took place.
You must also keep certain legal deadlines in mind. For example, the Maryland personal injury statute of limitations generally allows up to three years from the date of the injury for a plaintiff to file suit. However, while the law provides up to three years, there are advantages to acting as soon as possible:
- There is less risk that evidence will be destroyed, or that witnesses will be lost.
- Eyewitnesses to the accident will have fresher, more accurate memories of the event.
- There will be more time to build a comprehensive, robust case supported by all available evidence.
- If you prevail, you will receive your compensation that much sooner.
Various types of compensation (“damages”) may be recoverable, including compensation for your medical bills, compensation for pain and suffering, compensation for lost earnings and reduced earning ability, and compensation for damage to your personal property. While some law firms might rush to settle as quickly as possible, we will investigate your claim thoroughly and follow the strategy that gives you the greatest likelihood of a higher recovery, whether that means negotiating a settlement or taking your case to court.
