HOW MUCH IS MY BALTIMORE PERSONAL INJURY CASE WORTH? Is it too late to sue?
Most people who don't work in the legal system are familiar with the "statute of limitations". But, are there other time limits that apply? Maryland law provides special time limits and notification requirements. An experienced Baltimore personal injury attorney can provide you with guidance on these specific procedures. If your claim is a tort [e.g. negligence] claim against the State of Maryland, your personalinjury attorney must notify the state treasurer of the claim with 1 year of the occurrence or the suit will be disallowed, even though statute of limitations may not run for 2 more years. If your claim is a tort claim against a local government entity, your personal injury lawyer must notify the designated representative within 6 months of the occurrence or the claim will be disallowed, even though statute of limitations may not run for 2 and one half more years.
