How can I recover compensation after a restaurant accident?
To recover financial compensation, the first step you should take is to hire an experienced personal injury attorney who will walk you through the claims filing process. In order to successfully take legal action against the negligent party responsible for your accident, you must prove that they are directly responsible for your injuries. To do so, your attorney will use witness statements, pictures and videos of the scene of the accident, medical documentation relating to your injuries, police report, and more to prove your claim.
What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland?
The statute of limitations for personal injury claims is typically three years in Maryland.
