Do You Have a Claim?
Personal injury law is set up to protect the general public from the negligent actions of others. If you have been a victim of such intentional wrongs, two key factors need to be established before filing a claim.
Does the person charged in the case bear the legal responsibility for the personal injury or injuries you have sustained?
Do the damages claimed reflect the appropriate extent of the injury or loss you sustained as a result of the negligence suffered?
If the answer to these two important questions is yes, you have the basis for a personal injury claim. The next step is to contact our personal injury lawyers to discuss what needs to happen next.
What is Negligence?
In a personal injury case, proving negligence amounts to legally placing the blame for the personal injury on the defendant who caused the injury. An example of negligence would be a business who failed to mark a wet floor with a “Wet Floor” sign.
All personal injuries resulting from this inaction, would be deemed as negligent and the injured party would be entitled to compensation.
Personal injury claims may be advanced under Maryland law when the cause of the injury falls squarely on the shoulders of the Defendant; meaning the injured party, the Plaintiff did not contribute to the accident.
The common areas of personal injury law in Maryland include, slip and falls, nursing home abuse, car accidents, motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice, dog bite cases and the like.
