I do not take a fee unless you get financial recovery.
My firm prides itself in being knowledgeable in helping victims of personal injury recover from the negligent actions of others. As an attorney and resident of Maryland, I am extremely familiar with the Maryland court systems, judges, and procedures. In Maryland, it can be more difficult to recover because Maryland follows the Law of contributory negligence. Maryland is one of five states that practices this outdated rule. Contributory negligence is when both parties are negligent causing difficulty for the party to recover even if they were only 1% negligent. What this means is if you are found even 1% contributory negligent, you cannot recover. Another thing one must be aware is the statute of limitation. Statute of limitations is a law that provides a time period when a civil case must be filed. In Maryland, you have three years to file from the date of occurrence.
Assumptions of risk is another factor to consider. In the state of Maryland, one is considered to assume risk when he/she enters into a situation with full knowledge and understanding of the dangers that exist, and proceeds anyway.
As someone seeking representation for yourself or a loved one, you want someone with experience to enhance your chance for recovery. There are many different personal injury cases that my firm handles including: auto accidents, workers’ compensation, wrongful death, and medical malpractice. Each of these personal injury cases requires a specific set of skills and expertise in order to be successful. At my law firm, we believe in completely straightforward and upfront about your chances of recovering. If you find yourself in a personal injury case, please feel free to contact me at any time.
