You can’t wait too long before filing a car accident lawsuit in Maryland. The statute of limitations in most Maryland car accident cases is three years from the date of the accident. If a child was injured as a minor, their three-year period begins the day that they turn 18 years old instead of the day of the accident.
Cases involving state or local government entities have different, and usually shorter, deadlines. So please don’t wait to find out how long you have to start your case. Contact Zirkin & Schmerling Law as soon as possible. Filing before the deadlines is an essential part of determining who pays for the costs of a car accident and ensuring you won’t have to handle all the costs yourself.
