What Is the Statute of Limitations on Car Accidents in MD?
If you or someone you love has been injured in a car accident, the statute of limitations in Maryland states that you have three years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. If the statute of limitations runs out before you file a claim, you will lose the ability to file a claim altogether.
To determine if you should file an injury lawsuit from your car accident and when you should do so, reach out to our experienced Suitland, MD car accident lawyer today.
How A Suitland Auto Accident Attorney Can Help You
Being in a car accident can be a horrifying experience. The damage to property, injuries, and expenses resulting from the accident can leave you feeling overwhelmed and unsure of what to do.
An attorney can help you make sense of the experience and ensure your rights are protected. By presenting your case and negotiating with the insurance agency and the party at fault for the accident, a lawyer can help you get the compensation that you deserve.
How To File a Tort Claim
If you chose to pursue legal action, your attorney can file a tort cause of action against the person who caused the accident. To do so, your attorney will gather evidence to prove that the other driver had a duty to drive safely, that the other driver was negligent or reckless in performing that duty, and that this resulted in the car accident and your injuries.
What Compensation Is Available for Car Accidents?
If this is proven to the judge or jury’s satisfaction, your attorney will then argue how much compensation you should receive based on your injuries.
Compensation for such accidents usually takes into account:
- The nature of your injuries
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Lost opportunities
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages, in some cases
Common Causes of Car Accidents
Car accidents can happen for a number of reasons. Most car accidents are caused by the decisions a driver makes while operating a car. However, some causes are out of the driver's control. Some common causes of car accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Reckless driving/speeding
- Ignoring traffic lights
- Drunk driving
- Road rage
- Being tired or fatigued
- Inclement weather
- Poorly maintained roads
- Vehicle defects
- Unsafe lane changes
Working with Insurance Companies
Insurance companies are infamous for not properly paying out compensation after a wreck. They’ll look for any reason not to pay and will hire entire teams of lawyers to fight claims.
This is why you need an experienced attorney to examine all of the evidence, negotiate with the insurance companies, and get the money that you are owed for your injuries. Our attorney will represent your interests to ensure that the insurance company pays what you deserve.
