Get an Injury Lawyer in Maryland
A personal injury suit is a civil claim that aims to penalize anybody who is responsible for causing harm to another person. Different States have different Statutes and each State follows a system that would help the court determine the amount to award the plaintiff in damages. Unlike most States where you can recover compensation if you are equally responsible for the accident, Maryland follows the Pure Contributory Negligence System. You will be barred from claiming compensation if you are partly to blame for your injuries.

How much is your case worth?
Putting a dollar amount to your injuries is difficult. Aside from the medical bills, other factors are un-quantifiable such as a loss of limb, disfigurement and disability. Most importantly, it would be extremely difficult to put a dollar value on somebody’s life if he died in a terrible car accident. A personal injury lawyer will be able to help you determine a fair amount but ultimately, the decision on the judgment amount lies solely on jury or judge. Some of the factors that would affect this decision include the actual facts of your case, the defendant’s defenses asserted in court, the strength of your liability case, the quality of the witnesses and their statements as well as the severity of your injuries.
When you first meet with your lawyer to discuss your claim, he will determine the strength of your case and whether or not it can be pursued in court. The stronger your case is, the better the possibilities in recovering a bigger sum. Most personal injury cases are settled out of court but in our experience, settlement offers during pretrial is larger compared to offers made before the suit is filed.
