MARYLAND PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEYS
Compassionate & Fair Treatment for Victims
Proudly helping the people of Prince George's, Charles, Calvert, Anne Arundel and surrounding counties!
After you’ve been injured in an accident caused by the negligence of others, you deserve all the support and compassion in the world. Accidents like car crashes and falls caused by nursing home negligence often result in severe injuries that require extensive medical treatment and therapy. Sadly, some cases also result in death of the victim.
Unfortunately, many victims are left in pain and faced with medical bills, property damage, and other expenses they can’t afford to pay. Insurance adjusters also frequently prey on individuals at their most vulnerable to avoid giving them the compensation they need.
At Potter Burnett Law, our goal is to give victims the care they’re entitled to after accidents. Our firm is proudly led by nationally acclaimed personal injury attorneys Deborah L. Potter, Suzanne V. Burnett, and Andrew T. Burnett. Our entire team understands the importance of standing by your side and confidently representing injured individuals throughout the state of Maryland and Washington, DC.
HEART OF A LION
At Potter Burnett Law, we care deeply about our clients and are ready to stand by your side through this difficult time. We will fight aggressively against insurance companies and aren’t afraid to take your case to trial to get you the full and fair compensation you need to recover.
mARYLAND STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS PERSONAL INJURY
The statute of limitations is a law which limits how long injury victims have to file a personal injury claim before they lose their legal right to do so. 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.
Specifically, this means you have three years from the date your injury occurred to file your claim, or you will lose your right to file and recover compensation. It’s important to note that exceptions exist that can change this time limit. The most notable exceptions include:
- If the injury victim was a minor at the time of the accident, the three-year time period will begin once the claimant turns 18.
- If the injury victim has a condition that qualifies them as legally mentally incapacitated, the statute of limitations will end two years from the date they are declared mentally capable again.
- If the alleged negligent party intentionally conceals their identity to avoid a lawsuit the three-year clock won’t start until the injury victim discovers the fraud
The statute of limitations has a big impact on your ability to file a claim so it’s crucial that you speak to a skilled attorney about the specifics of your case as soon as you can.
