Maryland Personal Injury FAQ
Our lawyers will talk with you at no cost to you to determine if you have a case and what it may potentially be worth. Call us at 410-844-6000 and ask for Dustin or Allen.
A case can take anywhere from as little as a few weeks to a few years. Generally speaking, until you’re fully healed and/or know what if any permanent injuries you may have suffered it will be difficult to estimate the time it may take to resolve your case.
There are no upfront costs, or fees charged for us to represent you. Instead, we front all costs and invest our time in your case at no risk to you for a percentage of the recovery. This is called a contingency fee agreement, meaning we do not bill hourly for our work on your case.
It can vary depending on the type of case but in Maryland, for personal injury and most medical malpractice cases you have three (3) years from the collision or suspected malpractice to bring and file a lawsuit. If you do not file a lawsuit within the Statute of Limitations, you will lose your ability to seek compensation. Call us today at 410-844-6000 to ensure we can help within the time allowed.
Some cases settle before filing a lawsuit, therefore you do not have to go to Court. However, if your case does not settle, filing a lawsuit may be your only option in getting compensation for your injuries. If a lawsuit is filed, your case still may settle before trial but if it does not and the case proceeds to trial you will need to come to Court and testify in front of a Judge or jury.
That is our job and what we do best. The burden of proof in a civil lawsuit is a “Preponderance of Evidence” which means “more likely than not.” This is a lesser burden than what you may see on TV or in a criminal trial which is “Beyond a Reasonable Doubt,” and it is a much higher burden of proof. In our cases, if we can prove that more likely than not; 1. the defendant was negligent 2. that the negligence was the cause of your harm, and 3. the amount of your harm suffered, we have successfully met our burden of proof.
Your insurance policy will likely cover you should be injured by an uninsured driver. If you do not have any insurance you may qualify to be compensated by the Maryland Automobile Insurance Fund Uninsured Division. This is often a complex fund to navigate and it requires certain procedural steps that must be taken within 180 days from the accident. Please call us right away if you suspect you have a case like this.
