HOW MUCH IS MY BALTIMORE PERSONAL INJURY CASE WORTH? When Can I Sue? Is there time limit ?
Most people who don't work in the legal system are familiar with the "statute of limitations". But what does that mean? Is there more than one? Is there any way around it? In Maryland, a negligence action generally must be filed by a personal injury attorney within 3 years from the date of injury But imagine a situation where someone may not discover that they are injured until many, many years later [e.g. see Mesothelioma, a rare cancer generally caused by exposes to asbestos, that may not manifest itself for decades.] An experienced Baltimore personal injury lawyer can help you determine if the statute of limitations may be extended in a particular case.
