If you have suffered an injury as a result of the action or inaction of another, you may be entitled to recover compensation if you are able to establish fault or liability with the other entity. Finding a Maryland personal injury lawyer with experience in these types of cases will help with your chances of maximizing the compensation you may recover.
In the personal injury context, the injured person must establish that the other entity was negligent. Negligence can be defined as generally acting below the standard of care that a reasonable person would follow, or not acting in a manner consistent with the standard of care that a reasonable person would follow.
To recover damages or a settlement, the act or inaction of the other entity must be the cause of the injury. From farm-related accidents and injuries, to accidents sustained on commercial or personal premises, if the other party is found negligent, you may be entitled to a settlement.
Since every case is unique, it is important to discuss an injury claim arising on the property of another with a knowledgeable attorney. The law office of Arthur C. Crum, Jr. concentrates in auto accident lawsuits and personal injury cases, serving Maryland cities such as Cumberland, Oakland, Hagerstown and Frederick.
Benefits under Maryland law, which you may be entitled to, include compensation for past and future medical bills and past and future loss of wages. You may also be entitled to compensation for noneconomic damages which, for example, may include pain and suffering, physical impairment, and disfigurement.
