WHAT IS THE VALUE OF MY PERSONAL INJURY CASE? Is it too late to sue? What about a medical malpractice claim?
In Maryland, a negligence action generally must be filed by a personal injuryattorney within 3 years from the date of injury. However, an action for damages relating to providing, or failing to provide, professional health care services must be brought within the earlier of 5 years from the date of the act leading to injury, or three years after the injury was discovered. The injured person must always act with appropriate diligence in pursuing the claim. The time periods may be extended if a minor is the injured person. An experienced Baltimore personal injury attorney can provide you with the time-frames that apply to your case.
