For decades, our firm has represented clients who have been injured by the negligence of other parties. Some of the many accident cases we handle include the following:
Statute of Limitations
If you have been seriously injured by the negligence of another party, it is critical that you do not hesitate to take legal action. The state of Maryland requires that all personal injury cases are filed no later than three years from the date of the accident. If you fail to file your claim within this time period, you will not be permitted to take action and will miss out on significant compensation. It is important to note that if you are taking legal action against a municipality, you may have to file a Notice of Claim within a much shorter timeframe.
Burden of Proof
One of the key elements of any personal injury case is that you must prove that the other party was negligent and that their negligence caused you to become injured. This is referred to as the burden of proof. You can fulfill the burden of proof by taking pictures, witness statements, obtaining surveillance footage, with police reports, and more.
