If I am Injured at My Friend’s House, Will I Have to Sue Him For Compensation?

If I am Injured at My Friend’s House, Will I Have to Sue Him For Compensation?

If you are someone who has recently sustained an injury at a friend’s home, whether in a slip and fall or otherwise, there is a very good chance you now require financial compensation, however, you do not wish to sue your friend. Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable Maryland personal injury attorneys to learn more about premises liability claims in Maryland and how we can help you through the legal process going forward.

Will I have to sue my friend directly if I am injured at his home in Maryland?

Fortunately, the answer to this question, under most circumstances, is no. If you are injured at your friend’s house, we will not sue your friend directly. Instead, we will simply sue your friend’s insurance company. This means that, in most cases, you should receive the compensation you deserve and need to heal without having to cost your friend anything.

How do I know if I qualify for compensation in a personal injury claim in Maryland?

The main qualifier for winning compensation in any personal injury claim is whether you can prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. That being said, you will have to hire an experienced Maryland personal injury attorney who can obtain all of the evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof. Some of this evidence may include pictures of the condition that caused you to slip and fall, a copy of the police report that was filed at the scene of the accident, medical documents/bills regarding the origin and extent of your injuries (as well as their cost), witness statements verifying your claim, and more.

What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland is, generally three years. Simply put, this means that if you are injured in an accident in Maryland, you will have three years from the date of that accident to take legal action against the party responsible. You must not wait past the statute of limitations, for if you do, you will most likely be permanently barred from suing.
