When Should I Contact A Lawyer?

There is a time limit for initiating a personal injury lawsuit. In Washington, D.C. and Maryland you have three years from the date of the injury to make a claim.  Wrongful death matters are treated differently in the District of Columbia where the time limit is two years. In Maryland, there is a three-year limitation on wrongful death cases. Contact us for a free initial consultation.

Personal Injury cases are complicated. Determining who owns or is in control of the property where you suffered an injury can be complicated. Many businesses creatively structure their ownership in ways that make it a little harder than expected to correctly identify the owner and its specific business location.

It will take time to conduct an extensive investigation in order to find evidence of prior complaints, a detailed review of all medical and health records and other important information. So it is very important to move quickly if we are to pursue a cause of action against the responsible party. 

If you wait too long to contact a lawyer, you may be unable to pursue a case. When you reach out to us, your personal injury attorney will thoroughly analyze your case and conduct a full investigation to determine a proper strategy.
