MD personal injury case & accident info
Maryland is a very busy, bustling state, so it has its fair share of car accidents, negligence and personal injury cases. Sometimes you don't even know where to pin liability. It might be you whose life was irrevocably changed; it might be a friend or family member.
Whatever happened, if you need guidance for your personal injury case, Enjuris has the answers.
Maryland personal injury law: the basics
Maryland statutes online
This is where you’ll find Maryland's laws. The website has details about how long you have to bring a case, monetary limits on personal injury cases (also known as damage caps), and other important information.
Maryland's car accident statutes of limitation
In Maryland, you have three years to bring both personal injury and property damage claims. That means you have three years to file your paperwork with the court, not that your case has to be completed in that time frame.

Hiring a lawyer in Maryland
The first meeting with a personal injury attorney is normally free. (Note that other legal specialties, such as taxation law or real estate law, are different.) After that, lawyers work on a contingency basis, which means that they will take a third of the eventual reward or settlement, plus whatever office expenses they incurred.
If your case ends up going to trial, the percentage could rise to 40% of the eventual reward or judgment. These numbers aren't determined by law, so don't be surprised if your lawyer suggests something else.
