The physical, mental, and emotional pain and suffering of a car accident might leave you injured, stressed, and anxious. The added financial stress for you and your family can make an already difficult time even more challenging to navigate.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were 107,789 car accidents reported across the state in 2015. Of those, there were 44,816 injured victims and 521 fatalities.

Compile the Documents that Complete Your Case File
Maryland is one of only four states in the country that has a contributory negligence law where being even one percent at fault for a car accident might prevent you from receiving any amount of compensation.
Our team may be able to help you compile additional documents to establish how the other driver was at fault for the accident. These documents might include:
- The crash report
- Witness statements
- Employment records
- Photos and videos
- Car repair estimates
- Car replacement values
A Largo car accident lawyer might be able to help you gather the documents you need to prove the cause, cost, and effect of the accident. Contact the personal injury team at the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow.
Your Crash Report Might Help Prove the Cause of the Accident
Your crash report might contain information that reveals why the other driver might be liable for the accident. In addition to accident scene diagrams and descriptions, it may tell our team:
- Road and weather conditions
- Type of collision
- Suspected substance use
- Possible vehicle failure
- Contributing circumstances
- Vehicle movements
Obtain copies of your crash report as soon as it becomes available. Supply our team with a copy and maintain one for your records. Your crash report might also help us prove the date of your injuries and establish the statutory deadline for your case.

Do Not Wait to Start Fighting for Financial Compensation
Like every personal injury lawsuit in Maryland, your case is subjected to a state-mandated statute of limitations. According to the Maryland Code, Courts and Judicial Proceedings §5–101, you generally have three years to file your lawsuit. Failing to file your lawsuit before the three-year deadline might prevent you from filing it at all.
If you fail to comply with the statute of limitations when filing your lawsuit, you might inadvertently relinquish your right to pursue compensation from the at-fault driver. If you decide to work with our team, we can determine if we have enough time to file your lawsuit on time and pursue compensation. We may take other legal steps to handle this accordingly.
