Here are some of the questions you may have:
What should I bring to my initial consultation with a Maryland personal injury attorney?
After an accident, it is critical that you do everything in your power to document the incident, and, from there, you should bring that information to your initial consultation with our firm so we can efficiently assess your case and determine the best path forward. If possible, please bring the following information to your initial consultation with our firm:
- A copy of the police report filed at the scene of the accident.
- Your insurance (auto and health) information.
- Any medical documentation/bills associated with your accident.
- If you were injured in an auto accident, bring pictures of any damage to your vehicle or the other motorist’s vehicle, as well as the other motorist’s insurance information.
- If you were injured on someone else’s property, bring pictures of the unsafe property conditions that caused your accident.
- Any correspondence you may have had with the other party or their insurance company. This can include text messages, emails, phone calls, and more.
- Witness statements/contact information
- Photographs of your injuries
- Any other information that is relevant to your accident/case.
How long will I have to schedule my initial consultation with a Maryland personal injury attorney?
Of course, the sooner you bring your claim to our firm’s attention, the better. However, you should understand that there is a statute of limitations in place for personal injury claims in Maryland that dictates the amount of time the wrongly injured have to take legal action against the party responsible for their injuries. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland is, generally, three years, you will, generally, have three years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the liable party. Our experienced Maryland personal injury attorney is ready to begin the claims process on your behalf today. All you must do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
