Understanding Personal Injury Law
Negligence and intentional torts are two main causes of personal injury cases. Both require different legal strategies, and my firm is equipped with the resources and competence needed to protect your rights as you fight for the compensation you need to recover from your injuries.
Negligence: Failure to behave with the same level of care that another person would have exercised under the same circumstances. This wrongdoing results from both action and failure to act.
In order to win a personal injury case, you must be able to prove the following 4 elements of negligence:
- Defendant had a duty
- Defendant breached that duty
- You suffered
- The defendant’s breach caused the injury
Tort: An act or failure to act that causes injury or harm. This qualifies as a civil wrongdoing, which places liability on the defendant. In this context, "injury" describes the invasion of any legal right, whereas "harm" describes a loss or impairment that a person suffers.
My firm represents tort cases such as:
- False imprisonment
- Intentional infliction of emotional distress
- Private/public nuisance
There are 3 general categories of torts:
- Intentional: The defendant knew or should have known the wrongdoings would happen as a result of their action or failure to act.
- Negligence: When the defendant's actions were unreasonably dangerous.
- Strict liability: This doesn’t depend on the degree of care the defendant used. Instead, courts focus on whether a clear result or harm is evident.
Statute of Limitations
You need to act now. No matter what type of legal claim you need to file, your case is subject to a statute of limitations, which means you have a limited amount of time to take legal action. In the state of Maryland, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is three years from the date pf your injury.
