What is the statute of limitations on a personal injury claim?
A statute of limitations is a state law that puts a strict time limit on your right to file a lawsuit. In Maryland you have a three year limit.
If you happen to miss the deadline then you lose your right to take your lawsuit to court, and you will no longer have a legal remedy for any harm the defendant caused you.
At The Law Office of Christopher J. Smith in Rockville, I am passionate about trying to gain fair restitution for my clients who have been injured due to another party’s negligence.
