How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Maryland?
According to the Maryland Courts & Judicial Proceedings Code section 5-101, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in the state of Maryland is three years. The statute of limitations is a law which limits how long individuals have to file a personal injury claim.
More specifically, this law means injury victims have three years from the date your injury was inflicted to file a claim, or risk losing their right to file along with their right to pursue compensation. It’s important to note that there are exceptions that can both extend or shorten this time limit so it’s crucial to speak to an experienced attorney about the specifics of your case as soon as you can.

Wrongful Death Claims
If your loved one—such as a spouse, parent, or child—has passed away due to the negligence of another, you and their surviving dependents may be entitled to receive compensation for your loss.

Our goal is to handle to wrongful death process on your behalf so you can focus less on legal matters and more on spending this trying time with your loved ones.
Wrongful death can occur in a wide range of situations. Some of the most common causes include vehicle accidents.
Automobile companies can be held responsible for defective products, while trucking companies can be held accountable for accidents where their employees broke trucking regulations.
Similarly, there are a number of factors that determine the amount of damages that can be awarded in wrongful death cases. These include:
- How much money was earned by the decedent
- The degree to which family members were financially dependent on the decedent
- Expenses incurred by the decedent’s survivors, such as medical costs and funeral expenses
Our Suitland wrongful death lawyer can assist you through the complex legal process and handle all the stress and worry involved in filing a claim.
Workers’ Compensation Claims
Workers’ compensation claims often fall under the personal injury umbrella. However, there are some key differences between the two.
The most important difference is that personal injury claims allow you to file a lawsuit against the party responsible for your accident whereas workers’ comp claims do not.
Instead of determining a party to be “at fault”, workers’ compensation claims go through a pre-determined system maintained by the state and federal governments.
This way, you can receive compensation to cover your accident-related expenses without facing a legal battle against your employer.
That being said, workers’ comp claims can be complicated—not to mention that your employer and their insurer may talk to talk you into a low settlement.
