What causes car accidents?
Car accidents are one of the leading causes of fatalities in America. The roads are more dangerous now than ever. Car accidents are most often caused by driver negligence. Some of the most common types of negligent driving behavior include driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, texting while driving, and driving while drowsy, fatigued, or otherwise distracted and not of the right state of mind to be behind the wheel of a car.
How do I know if I am eligible for compensation if I have been injured in a car accident?
To qualify for compensation, you will need an experienced attorney on your side who is capable of satisfying the burden of proof. This means that you must prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. To do so, your attorney will work to recover various types of crucial evidence, including pictures or videos of the accident as it happened, medical documents explaining the depth and origin of your injuries, police reports of the accident, and more. If you are able to speak to any witnesses of the accident, you should request their contact information so they can also help verify your personal injury claim, if need be.
What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland?
The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland is three years. This means that those injured in car accidents will have three years from the date of their accident to file a personal injury claim against a negligent motorist. If you wait longer than three years to file, you will most likely be barred from suing. Do not let this happen. Our firm has been helping injured clients just like you recover the compensation they need to get back on their feet once again.
