Maryland Personal Injury Lawyer

Our Maryland office and its experienced injury lawyers pride themselves on helping victims of physical harm resulting from the negligent actions of another party. We represent clients in injury claims involving accidents, car crashes, slip and fall accidents, dangerous and defective products, and wrongful death. We also represent patients who were harmed by medical mistakes. Valid medical malpractice claims may arise from misdiagnosis, prescription errors, wrong site surgeries, and other situations in which a healthcare professional fails to uphold the standard of care.

Some personal injury claims arise from intentional actions or neglect, such as nursing home abuse. Seniors who experience bedsores, malnutrition, or falls in an assisted living center may have grounds for a lawsuit against the facility owners or staff. Additionally, our Maryland personal injury lawyers help to protect the interests of workers who have been hurt on the job throughout the state of Maryland. An injured employee could receive necessary medical care and lost wage benefits through a workers’ compensation claim.

If during a stay at a veterans hospital you or a loved one suffered an injury due to their negligence, contact a personal injury lawyer right away. All of our personal injury cases are handled on a contingency basis, which means we are not paid a fee unless you receive a financial recovery. Here are some frequently asked questions about personal injury cases.

“Who Is The Best Attorney in Maryland?”

When speaking to individuals who are searching for an attorney, we hear this question a lot. Sometimes we are asked who the “best lawyer in Maryland” is, and other times who “the best Maryland injury law firm” may be. We understand that when you feel you have been hurt by another’s actions, you want an experienced and talented advocate to represent you in your case. However, looking for an attorney is not so simple. Instead of looking for “the best,” you should be looking for the best lawyer or law firm to represent you in your case. There are many different kinds of cases, and it is not always obvious what kind of lawyer or law firm may be a good fit to represent you. Here are some important places to start. First, look for an attorney who is licensed to practice in the jurisdiction where you want to file a case. Second, look for an attorney who has sufficient experience handling similar cases to represent you competently. Find a lawyer who understands what MRI and CAT scans are and how they play into a personal injury case. This second point is one reason why looking for the “best Maryland injury lawyer” is not always an effective strategy. For instance, intellectual property claims or fraud cases often involve very different areas of law from civil rights violations or medical malpractice issues. Third, you should look for attorneys who you feel you can trust and advocate for you. Speak to different attorneys. Do research online. Every case is unique, and although previous results cannot predict or guarantee similar or favorable results in the future, you can also look at reviews from former clients to see how their experience was with a particular law firm.

Time Limits For Filing Injury Cases in Maryland

The Statute of Limitations in Maryland is 3 years for most cases, however, there are certain exceptions to that such as if someone is under the age of 18 or rendered disabled either physically or mentally. For most cases such as car accident cases, slip and fall cases, other typical lawsuits it is 3 years from the date of the accident to file a claim. With that said, it is always best to get accurate information on the statute of limitations for a case. For that consult with an injury attorney in Maryland.

Strict Liability Laws

While most personal injury cases in Montgomery County and the rest of Maryland must be proven under the legal theory of negligence, the law may enforce the doctrine of strict liability in certain cases. For injuries suffered from a dog or animal attack, the owner may be strictly liable for the victim’s damages if the dog was running freely prior to the accident. This means that regardless of whether or not there was any negligence on their part, a dog owner may be held liable for injuries inflicted by their animal.

Contributory Negligence in Maryland

Sometimes, a MoCo or Maryland court may find that both the plaintiff and the defendant share liability for the underlying accident. In such cases, the courts follow the contributory negligence doctrine. This doctrine would preclude a plaintiff from any financial recovery if they are found to bear the slightest fault for the accident.
