Suffering a severe personal injury can be a life-changing event. Even if you are eventually able to make a full recovery, you will likely need substantial medical attention, endure a reduction to your quality of life, and may even lose out on income. If another person or entity was responsible for the incident that caused these losses, they have an obligation under the law to provide fair compensation. That is often easier said than done.

There many types of significant and serious injuries that may arise in this context, including accidents as a result of the negligence of another driver, particularly those operating trucks/tractor trailers. Severe burns resulting from electricity, chemicals, or other dangerous products can cause lifelong debilitation and severe pain and suffering. Personal injury cases may originate from any number of situations, including severe motor vehicle crashes (including trucks and motorcycles), defective consumer products or dangerous drugs, medical malpractice (including birth injury), catastrophic injuries at construction sites and more.
Each of these examples comes with its own elements that an injured person must prove in order to collect compensation. For most of the above examples, there is only a limited time after an injury in which a person must file a lawsuit. This is called the Statute of Limitations. According to Maryland Courts and Judicial Proceedings Code § 5-101, this time limit is three years in most cases. Working with a personal injury lawyer from KBA will ensure that we will keep track of the time limit in Maryland to file a lawsuit so that the Statute of Limitations will not be missed.Learn More
At-fault parties in personal injury cases must provide full compensation to those that their actions have affected. However, the plaintiff bears the burden of evidence to show how an event has damaged and changed their life. This means they and their legal counsel must evaluate the full impact of an injury, even less obvious effects of the injuries. In order for a case to have substantial value, usually the victim has suffered significant injuries with extensive medical treatment necessary. In some types of cases, though, there is a non-economic or pain and suffering valuation for the injury. While there are caps on the ability to recovery for non-economic damages, these are still often significant in the value of an individual claim. As long as the condition requires medical care, it may serve as the basis for a lawsuit.
The consequences of a serious accident are not just physical – people also suffer mentally and psychologically. They may experience nightmares, flashbacks, or other forms of emotional trauma after an event, or their injuries might lead to an unwanted lifestyle change. In addition, the injuries might keep a person off the job for weeks, or even end with a permanent disability. A personal injury lawyer in Maryland must understand every way in which this event has changed a person’s life. At KBA, we fight for the maximum recovery allowed under the law in every single case.
