- Medical malpractice
- Wrongful death
- Serious injuries caused by negligence
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.
What Damages Can Be Recover in a Personal Injury Claim?
The specific amount an injury victim can recover in a personal injury claim depends widely on the specifics of their case. No two cases are the same, therefore it’s not possible to say how much a case is worth. However, the types of damages an individual can pursue remain the same across personal injury cases. These types of damages are:
- Economic damages
- Non-economic damages
- Punitive damages.
Economic damages, as the name suggests, compensates for the financial losses directly associated with suffering an injury, such as medical expenses or the inability to work. Non-economic damages compensates the injured party for the non-financial suffering associated with their injury. These abstract loses usually include familiar categories such as pain and suffering, or mental anguish.
Punitive damages differ from the first two in that the main purpose of them is to punish the negligent party instead of compensating losses associated with an injury. Because of this, punitive damages are the least awarded of the three.
