What Is Personal Injury Law?
Personal injury law is a legal practice area that deals with cases involving injuries to a person’s body or mind caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, entity, or organization. These cases can include accidents such as car crashes, slip and fall incidents, and other types of incidents where an individual is harmed due to someone else’s actions or lack of action.
How Do I Know If I Have a Personal Injury Case?
To determine if you have a valid claim, it’s important to consider the following factors:
- Liability: It must be established that the entity you are filing a claim against is at fault for your injuries.
- Damages: You must have sustained actual damages as a result of the accident, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and/or pain and suffering.
- Statute of Limitations: Maryland has a three-year statute of limitations for personal injury claims, which means that you have three years from the date to file a claim.
How Long Does It Take to Settle a Personal Injury Claim?
The duration of a personal injury claim is never set in stone and can fluctuate greatly. Factors such as the complexity of the case and the severity of the injuries sustained can play a significant role in determining the length of time it takes to settle. Our personal injury attorneys can provide a more accurate timeline once they have a better understanding of your case.
What Type of Information Should I Bring to a Consult?
It’s important to bring as much pertinent information regarding your case as you can. This may include:
- The police report from the accident
- Contact information and names of the parties involved
- Medical reports and receipts
- Photographs or videos of the accident scene
- Witness testimony and their contact information
- Proof of lost wages
- Receipts for any financial loss associated with your injury
How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
At the Law Office of Kent L Greenberg, we operate on a contingency basis. This means that you will not owe us any money or fees upfront, and we will only collect payment if and when we successfully recover damages on your case.
What Is the Personal Injury Claim Process?
The personal injury claim process in Maryland begins with the injured party filing a complaint, outlining the details of their case and the compensation they are seeking. The defendant has a certain amount of time to respond to the complaint.
Both parties may engage in pre-trial discovery, during which they gather evidence and information related to the case. After that, the parties may engage in settlement negotiations, which can result in a settlement agreement. If no agreement is reached, the case will proceed to trial.
