How Long Does a Person Have to File a Personal Injury Claim?

Anyone who wants to file a personal injury claim in Maryland must take legal action within 3 years from the date of accrual. Our expert attorneys will work with our clients to ensure their rights are protected and maximize the chances of a successful claim. They walk each client through the process, ensuring critical deadlines are met and any potential evidence is gathered.

What’s the Process for Filing a Personal Injury Claim?

We’ve spent years honing our expertise in personal injury law, and we handle all the paperwork and court filings associated with a personal injury claim. First, we thoroughly investigate the individual circumstances of each situation to determine the best course of action. Then, we file the necessary documents to pursue compensation from all responsible parties for damages resulting from an accident.

For example, if a client is a pedestrian accident victim, we’ll file a claim with the driver’s insurance company and any other liable parties. If the local municipality is responsible for the unsafe road conditions, we’ll also pursue damages from them.

Similarly, if a private contractor is responsible for failing to maintain a property, then we’ll file a claim with their insurance provider. Ultimately, it depends on the situation and who was at fault for causing the injury.

How Does the Statute of Limitations Affect an Insurance Claim?

The statute of limitations establishes the time you must bring legal action against a responsible party in court. Each state has unique laws, but in Maryland, you have 3 years from the date of accrual to file a personal injury claim. If you want to bring legal action against another party for damages resulting from an accident, you must do so within 3 years or risk dismissing your claim.

For example: someone breaks their leg in a truck accident. While photos of the truck’s damage may be helpful, physical evidence of the injury may not exist 3 years later. The bodily injury may have healed, and any medical records supporting the claim may be challenging to locate.

Why Is It Important to Get Prompt Medical Care Following an Accident That Resulted in Injury?

Prompt medical care following an accident is essential for several reasons. First, seeking medical attention can help prevent further injury or complications from developing. Additionally, failure to seek medical care can be used as evidence by the defense the damage was not severe or did not occur due to the accident. Additionally, medical records provide essential evidence for an insurance claim and can be used by an attorney to support your case if you are taken to court. This is why seeing a medical professional within 24 hours of an accident is vital, even if you don’t think your injury is serious.
