Answer

There is a three-year statute of limitations in Maryland – what this means is a lawsuit must be filed within three years of the date of the accident, or the claim is forever barred. However, a person injured in a car accident should not wait three years. You should contact a lawyer immediately. A lawyer will ensure that property damage and rental car are handled. A lawyer will also get statements from witnesses, photographs of damage and the scene, and see that the police officers are interviewed. Most importantly a lawyer can help ensure proper medical attention is obtained from quality, board-certified doctors who can testify at trial if need be. The lawyer will also know the value of a case, know all potential sources of insurance coverage, and be able and willing to file suit if the carrier’s offer is too low.

Those are just some of the reasons to see a lawyer immediately after a car crash, so do not wait. Contact the Jaklitsch Law Group if you have any questions, www.JaklitschLawGroup.com
