Do I have a personal injury case?
Have you or a loved one suffered:
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or head trauma
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck, back, or shoulder injuries
In order to pursue a personal injury claim, you must prove negligence. Maryland juries are instructed that negligence is doing something that a person using ordinary care, caution, and prudence would not do, or in fact, doing something that a reasonably cautions person would not do in a similar circumstance. To prove a case for negligence in court, a plaintiff must show the following:
- The defendant had a duty to conform their conduct to a specific standard of care that prevents harm - or the risk of harm - to others.
- The defendant failed to conform their conduct.
- That failure directly led to an injury.
- That injury caused bodily or other damage to the plaintiff.
Have you lost a loved one in a fatal accident caused by another's negligence? Maryland personal injury law also provides that where a "wrongful act" (an act, including criminal conduct, neglect, or improper operation of a vessel) causes the death of another, an action against that person may be maintained. Keep in mind, however, that there is a statute of limitations -- or a time limit -- for filing wrongful death claims, which is generally within 3 years in Maryland. If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another party, you should not delay in contacting a seasoned attorney to pursue your claim.
How much money will I receive?
Putting a dollar value on the specific ways that an injury has lessened the quality of someone's life and making an accurate prediction of the amount of money you will receive can be difficult to do so early in the case. However, putting an appropriate value on a case is one of the most important things a personal injury attorney does. Once all facts are determined, experienced injury lawyer Erik Kirk will provide you a value range of what you can expect to receive.
The exact amount of money recovered will depend on the nature and severity of your injuries, the amount of property damage, and the insurance company. Many insurance companies try to deny claims or make low-ball offers - if a fair settlement is not possible, attorney Eric Kirk will take your claim to court.
