Maryland Statute of Limitations
Maryland has a “statutes of limitations” that set a certain time line for the right of someone to bring a lawsuit. The statutes states that a person has three years to file for personal injury caused by another person from the date of the accident. You can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the person who caused the accident within three years. That time starts at the time of the victim’s death, not the time of the accident. These statutes do not apply to car insurance claims since they require you to make a claim within a reasonable time of the accident, which is typically within a matter of days or even a few weeks. Maryland follows a “contributory negligence” rule, which means you cannot be given monetary damages if you are partly responsible for the accident. The claims adjuster will make the decision especially if it looks like you played a part in the accident and they will make settlement negotiations a hassle.
