HOW MUCH IS MY BALTIMORE ACCIDENT CASE WORTH? Can I recover for the future effects of my injuries?
Recovery is permitted for lasting effects of injuries that, with "reasonable probability", can be expected in the future. Experienced Baltimore personal injury attorneys are familiar with the type of evidence is needed to support the required reasonable probability include the presence of at least some symptoms or effects at the time of trial, and expert testimony that the symptoms are of a "chronic" nature. Giant v. Scherry, 444 A.2d 483. Note that the "possibility" that current injuries might have future effects is not enough. The standard, usually demonstrated by the testimony of a treating physician, is that of probability. However, the level of proof required is not that of certainty.
