How long do I have to file a claim?
An injury can lead to serious emotional, physical, and financial struggles. For example, you may suffer from expensive hospital bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and more. As a result, you may deserve compensation to help ease these burdens. But, in order to recover the compensation you deserve, you will have to file your claim on time. This is due to a deadline known as a statute of limitations. In Maryland, the statute of limitations is generally three years from the date of the accident. Failing to file within three years will likely mean forfeiting your opportunity to take legal action, therefore forfeiting your right to sue. Three years may seem like a long time, but it is easy to miss important deadlines while you are recovering from a serious injury. As a result, it is important to reach out to a skilled personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
