If you are injured through someone else’s fault, then you have the ability to seek compensation. Leonard & McCliggott Law Group has a track record of success in the courtroom which has made insurance companies more than willing to negotiate settlements with the injured.
To prove your personal injury claim, our attorneys will need to prove that you were injured through the negligence of another. Negligence means that a person had a duty of care, the person breached that duty, and the breach caused the injury. Damages are the monetary losses that a plaintiff seeks.
Economic damages include medical expenses, lost wages, and loss of future earning capacity. Non-economic damages include pain, suffering, inconvenience, and stress. There is a statutory limit of how much non-economic damages a plaintiff can recover at around $800,000.
It is important to contact a lawyer as soon as you believe you have been harmed through someone else’s negligence. For instance, if you are involved in a car accident, an insurance company will attempt to get a statement from you. Insurance companies are incentivized to make profits over providing fair compensation to the injured. They are private businesses just like others. Speak to a lawyer before speaking to an insurance company.
The Leonard & McCliggott Law Group will fight to get you what you deserve. Generally speaking, in Maryland, a plaintiff has three years from the date of injury to file a lawsuit. Some types of cases have longer or shorter periods. This is called the statute of limitations. Contact us for a free consultation today.
