You wake up to yet another day of pain in your shoulder. You try to shake it off, ignore the spasms, and get on with your day. It’s been months, maybe even a year, since that bad Maryland motorcycle accident. It’s too late to do anything about it now anyway, so you try to shrug it off like the tough man that you are.
Or is it too late? A personal injury claim in Maryland may actually be made up to three years following the incident that led to the injury. This means that if you were injured months ago, you may still be able to get compensation for your injury and finally get relief from that unending pain.
Of course, if you’ve waited several months or even a couple of years to file a claim, you might encounter some resistance from the responsible party. They may demand to know, why now?
Perhaps you’ve spent all this time getting the necessary medical help and couldn’t spare the energy to worry about a lawsuit at the same time. Maybe what you tried to shake off as a temporary bruise has recently been discovered as a serious issue resulting from the accident.
In either situation, you have every right to pursue a lawsuit demanding compensation from the person who caused your Maryland motorcycle accident. It’s time to take the step toward legal action when:
- The pain is unbearable
- Your ability to work is hampered by your injury
- You can no longer enjoy life because of your injury
- The medical bills are overwhelming
- The insurance company has paid its maximum, leaving you with the rest
