Our Legal Services
If you are suffering injuries because of another person’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. The roads of Maryland are hectic and there are often reckless drivers on the roads who put the lives of the others around them at risk. Lloyd J. Eisenberg & Associates has over 30 years of experience representing clients who have been injured in motor vehicle accidents, including:
- Car accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Truck accidents
- Mass transit accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Drunk driving accidents
Of course, personal injury claims may be necessary for many other reasons. Our firm is well versed in handling a variety of premises liability accidents, some of which may include:
- Parking lot accidents
- Supermarket accidents
- Hotel accidents
- Elevator accidents
- Sidewalk accidents
- Snow & ice accidents
Lloyd J. Eisenberg & Associates realizes that some personal injury cases are not necessarily related to premises liability or motor vehicle accidents. The other matters that our firm handles include:
Fulfilling the Burden of Proof
If you have been seriously injured in an accident, you have 3 years from the date of the accident to take legal action for the majority of situations. In order to have a successful injury case, you will be responsible for fulfilling the burden of proof. This means that you will be required to prove that the defendant failed to meet a duty of care. This can come in the form of driving recklessly, proving that a property owner knew or should have reasonably known about a dangerous condition and failed to fix it, or that a professional failed to do their job to the standards that their peers would. Some of the ways that you can fulfill the burden of proof include filing a police report, taking photos of the dangerous conditions, obtaining witness testimony, obtaining surveillance footage, and more.
If you are able to fulfill the burden of proof in your accident case, you may be entitled to significant compensation for the physical, financial, and emotional strains that were caused by the accident. You may recover economic damages such as lost wages and medical expenses as well as non-economic damages such as emotional distress, pain and suffering, and more.
Statute of Limitations in Maryland
When someone is injured in an accident, it is critical that they do not wait to take legal action against the party who caused their injuries. While you may be tempted to simply wait and see if your injuries heal on their own to avoid the legal process, we cannot advise you to do so, as there is a statute of limitations in place that regulates the amount of time you will have to sue a liable party. Since the statute of limitations in the state of Maryland is, typically, three years, you will have three years from the date of your accident to sue the person who caused your injuries. Waiting any longer than three years will most likely permanently time-bar you from suing.
That being said, you should understand that though you technically have three years to file your claim, the sooner you take legal action, the better off you will be. This is because the longer you wait, the harder it will be to track down witnesses, and ultimately prove that your injury was a direct result of another party’s negligence. Further, if you’ve been injured the sooner you take action, the sooner you may receive the compensation to which you are entitled. Our firm is here to help fight for the compensation you deserve and need to get back on your feet once again. All you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call today.
