Establishing Liability in Maryland Personal Injury Cases
In Maryland, personal injury cases hinge on the concept of negligence. To establish liability, the injured party (plaintiff) must demonstrate that:
- The at-fault party (defendant) owed them a duty of care.
- The defendant breached this duty through careless or reckless actions.
- This breach directly caused the plaintiff's injuries.
- The injuries resulted in damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, or pain and suffering.
