Code 11-504 under Maryland law allows personal injury victims three years to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, this time period does not apply to even a single personal injury case. You will need to speak with an experienced attorney at Pinder Plotkin to learn how this law applies to your specific case.
Maryland is one of the several states in the nation that allows for contributory negligence. Lawyers at Pinder Plotkin are very familiar with this type of defense.
In most states, comparative negligence is used to determine how much of the accident was caused by the victim, how much of their injuries are their fault and the amount of financial compensation that they are awarded will reflect this decision.
On the other hand, contributory negligence is not the same thing. In the state of Maryland, if it is determined that the victim was found to be partially responsible for the accident in any degree, it is possible they will not be able to recover damages from the other party who has more fault.
The attorneys at Pinder Plotkin will look over your case very carefully to see if you are also partially at fault for any actions that led up to the accident. We have years of experience handling cases with this type of special circumstance, and we are familiar with most of the staff that works at the courthouse in this jurisdiction.
In addition, we have also witnessed many similar cases over the years play out in court and we are familiar with the legal process that is used with these special cases. It is this information that we use to help plan strategies, deal with negotiations and even get ready for a trial if necessary.
