WHAT IS THE VALUE OF MY PERSONAL INJURY CASE? The "Last Clear Chance" doctrine.
Experienced Baltimore personal injury lawyers know solace from the harsh application of contributory negligence principles may sometimes be found in notion of last clear chance. A plaintiff who caused or contributed to an accident would normally be barred from any recovery from the defendant, unless that defendant had a new opportunity – a last clear chance- and failed to prevent the harm to the plaintiff. A knowledgeable Baltimore personal injury lawyer may be able to successfully argue for and obtain a financial recovery for a negligent plaintiff using this concept.
