Our Focus Areas
Broadly speaking, we focus on injury claims and only represent those who have been injured. We do not advocate for insurance companies or defend medical professionals. Our practice areas include:
How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?
Every state has a time limit on how long injury victims have to file a personal injury claim before their right to recover compensation expires. Maryland has a three-year statute of limitations on personal injury claims. There are some exceptions to this law.
For instance, if the injury victim was a minor or under a mental disability at the time of injury the statute of limitations doesn't start until the individual turns 18 or the mental disability has lifted.
Another exception that Maryland makes is if the defendant intentionally attempts to deceive the injury victim to their liability. In this case, the statute of limitations may not begin until the injured party discovers, or should have reasonably discovered, the liability notwithstanding the defendants’ deception.
