OUR TEAM CAN HELP YOU CALCULATE THE VALUE OF YOUR CAR ACCIDENT CASE
If you have never filed a personal injury case for a car accident before, you might be wondering how much compensation you could receive for your injuries. The answer to this question varies by individual, as it is dependent on your actual financial losses and other general damages you experienced.
Because each individual is unique in their financial situation, our team would have to assess your personal damages to calculate your case’s value. We will also need to list each type of damage you experienced in your demand letter when we notify the liable party about your case. These damages may include:
- Damage to your vehicle
- Medical expenses related to your injuries
- Pain and suffering and inconvenience
- Current and future loss of income
- Reduced earning potential because of your injuries
- Permanent disability or physical disfigurement
- Loss of enjoyment in life or hobbies and activities you enjoyed before the accident
- Loss of consortium
This is not a complete list of damages. During our consultations, we may suggest other types of damages to pursue, including future expenses you should expect due to your injuries.

MARYLAND’S STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS SETS A FILING DEADLINE FOR ALL CAR ACCIDENT CASES
Car accident cases fall under personal injury law, so they must abide by rules set under this type of litigation. Each personal injury case must adhere to the statute of limitations, which is a legal deadline for filing a lawsuit. If you neglect to file your lawsuit by its statutory deadline, it can get dismissed, and you could lose your right to pursue compensation.
Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code §5-101 sets the filing deadline for all personal injury cases at generally three years from the cause of injury (in your case, the car accident), though some exceptions may apply. Our legal team can review your case to determine how much time you have left to file, then assist you accordingly.
IF YOU ARE FILING ON BEHALF OF YOUR LATE LOVED ONE
There is a separate filing deadline for families filing a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of their deceased loved one. If this applies to you, then you generally have three years from the date of your loved one’s death to file your case, according to Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code §3-904.
What To Expect During Your Free Car Accident Case Review
Your initial consultation is always free. It is our first point of contact and gives our legal team the chance to learn more about you, your accident, your injuries, and the crash’s impact on your life and family.
To delve into the details of your case, we ask:
- For your perspective on the accident’s cause
- Your injuries and any treatment you have received
- Your job and the amount of income you lost
- Anything said at the accident scene
- Any evidence you already have in your possession
Your consultation is also an opportunity for you to ask questions about our law firm and team members and the steps we take to prepare your case. In addition, we ensure you understand our case strategy, your rights, the at-fault driver’s responsibilities, and the potential value of your case. Finally, we’ll explain our fee structure and the benefits it offers.
We Do Not Charge You Anything Unless Your Case Resolves in Your Favor
When our law firm handles your car accident case, we do so on a contingency fee basis. Our fee structure means you do not incur any upfront or out-of-pocket costs for our legal service and support, which means we cover these costs:
- Any experts required to support your case, including an accident reconstructionist and medical or other experts
- Investigating your case, including obtaining the police report, photos, and videos of the accident scene
- Preparing your case for settlement talks or court, including filing fees
Instead of hourly fees and an upfront retainer, we accept a percentage of your final compensation. In addition, you owe us nothing if we don’t win you a financial award.
Therefore, we aim to resolve your case in your favor and obtain the best possible outcome for you.
