I'm Easily Injured. Can I Recover?

It's no a laughing matter, but Baltimore personal injury lawyers know the law recognizes that, yes, someone may be more likely or more easily injured than others. The age old adage is that an at fault party "takes his or her plaintiff as he or she finds them". If that results in an injury to a physically infirm individual, whereas a healthy individual might not have sustained the injury, that does not relieve the responsibility of the transgressor. 

The concept is sometimes called the "egg-shell skull" plaintiff rule.

The concept is related to, but not necessarily the same as, the concepts of aggravation or exacerbation of underlying conditions. The goal in these types of cases is to ask the court to instruct the jury in a case involving such a person that the fact that an injury would have been less severe if sustained by another should not affect the amount of the recovery.

Personal Injury Claims

Personal injury claims can be thought of as falling into three broad categories. Perhaps the most common are those resulting from negligence. An example would be the careless operation of a car leading to an accident causing injury. Claims may also arise from intentional misconduct like an assault causing injury. A narrow class of claims -called strict liability actions- arise even where the is no wrongful conduct.
