What Can I Recover If I Win My Maryland Personal Injury Case?

Maryland law allows for the recovery of economic and non-economic damages.



Maryland law calls compensation in a personal injury case damages or money damages. There are two types of damage that are applicable to a personal injury case. Economic and non-economic. Economic damages are hard number calculations, things that you can whip out a calculator and quickly tabulate. Things like lost wages, things like the payment of medical expenses or perhaps out of pocket expenses. Non-economic damages are a little more nebulous and a little more difficult to pin down. Included here are things like physical, emotional, or psychological pain, distress or discomfort. After a Maryland personal injury case, an injured individual is entitled to collect both economic damages and non-economic damages in an amount fixed by a jury.

I hope this addressed your question. Over the course of 25 years, I've found that fully addressing a legal question is best handled in a one-on-one, in person strategy and case analysis conference. I offer these to potential clients on a complimentary basis. Please use any of the methods under the contact tab at the top of the page to arrange yours.
