In Maryland, you have three years from the date of your injury to either settle your motorcycle accident case or file a lawsuit. If you do not do one of these two things within the three year statute of limitations, your claim will expire. A lawsuit filed even a day after the statute of limitations is “dead on arrival” and you will not recover a dime.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident in Maryland, it is important to get in touch with an attorney within a reasonable period of time after the crash. This lets the attorney investigate the case and interview potential witnesses while the accident is still fresh in their mind.
You may also have sources such as PIP or MedPay on your own auto insurance policy that can serve as sources of payment for your medical bills.
Yes. In Maryland, there is a three year statute of limitations on personal injury cases. This means that within three years of the date of your injury, you must have either settled your dog bite case or filed a lawsuit. Otherwise, you will not be able to recover a dime.
It is important to get a Maryland dog bite attorney involved long before the statute of limitations runs out on your case, however. The policy in our office is (with limited exception) not to accept dog bite cases with less than 90 days left on the statute of limitations. We do this in order to give ourselves enough time to establish who owned the dog, whether there is insurance in place and what sort of injuries you have.
If you were bitten by a dog in Maryland, give us a call before it’s too late.
