Maryland Accident Lawsuits Statute Of Limitations
In Maryland, and other states, a person injured from an auto accident or medical negligence only has a certain amount of time to file a lawsuit if they have been injured in an auto accident or a victim of medical malpractice. This time frame is called the statute of limitations. While seeking legal recourse may not be your top priority following any type of accident or injury, it absolutely should be. Failing to file your lawsuit prior to the statute of limitations can prevent you from obtaining the benefits and financial compensation you deserve.

What To Look For When Hiring A Personal Injury Attorney
It can seem overwhelming when deciding to hire a personal injury lawyer. Almost every attorney ‘handles’ personal injury cases but that does not mean they are the right attorney for you. Word of mouth is a good source of information when selecting an attorney to represent you for your injuries—ask your doctor or nurse practitioner, ask your friends or neighbors. Experience is very important as well. While it is true that many personal injury claims culminate via a settlement, many go to trial. There is a huge difference between a lawyer who will negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf vs. an attorney who will go up against the same insurance companies defense attorneys in court.
