There is nothing worse than sustaining a serious injury in an accident that was simply not your fault. Unfortunately, this is something that happens more often than you may think, and if you have been injured in an accident, you should continue reading and speak with our experienced Maryland personal injury attorneys to learn more about scheduling your initial consultation with our firm. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What should I bring to my initial consultation with a Maryland personal injury attorney?

After an injury, you should do your best to document the accident and the circumstances leading up to it, and from there, you should bring this information to your initial consultation with our firm so we can assess your situation and pursue the financial compensation you deserve and need from there. Some of the most useful information you should bring to your initial consultation is as follows:

  • Medical documentation regarding the origin/extent of your injuries, as well as medical bills.
  • A written statement regarding the chronological order of events.
  • If injured in a slip and fall, take pictures of the unsafe property conditions. If injured in an auto accident, take pictures of any damage to your vehicle and the other motorist’s vehicle.
  • Bring your insurance information, as well as the other motorist’s insurance information.
  • Bring a copy of the police report filed at the scene of the accident.
  • Any written or recorded correspondence you may have had with the other party or their insurance company.

How long can I wait to schedule an initial consultation with a personal injury attorney in Maryland?

If you are injured in an accident, you are most likely looking to recover compensation as soon as possible. This is why you should speak with our firm as soon as you can. That being said, there is a statute of limitations in place that regulates the amount of time all those who have been wrongly injured have to sue the liable party. The statute of limitations in Maryland is, generally, three years, which means that under most circumstances, you are legally obligated to sue the negligent party within three years of the date of your accident. Waiting any longer than three years generally results in you losing your right to sue. Give us a call today to schedule your initial consultation with our experienced attorneys.
