In Maryland, you have three years from the date of your injury to either settle your motorcycle accident case or file a lawsuit. If you do not do one of these two things within the three year statute of limitations, your claim will expire. A lawsuit filed even a day after the statute of limitations is “dead on arrival” and you will not recover a dime.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident in Maryland, it is important to get in touch with an attorney within a reasonable period of time after the crash. This lets the attorney investigate the case and interview potential witnesses while the accident is still fresh in their mind.
You may also have sources such as PIP or MedPay on your own auto insurance policy that can serve as sources of payment for your medical bills.
