Personal injury cases in Maryland are based on negligence. Usually, a person or entity with a duty of care to protect another person breaks a law that results in someone else being hurt. If another party’s negligence injured you or someone you love physically or psychologically, you could be entitled to recover damages from the liable party. Our Maryland personal injury lawyers will review your case for free. The legal team at Jenner Law can explain your compensation options and provide expert legal advice on what it will take to build a strong case.
Recoverable Financial Damages in a Maryland Injury Case
As the injured party, you are entitled to more than one type of compensation. Financial (economic) damages are simple to calculate. They usually have receipts, estimates, or bills that demonstrate their value. Financial damages include:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost income
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Property damage or total loss
- Diminished property value
Our case assessment team will make sure all such documents are accounted for and that your case value is accurate and complete so that you receive fair compensation.
What Are Recoverable Non-Financial Damages In Personal Injury Matters?
Generally, the dollar value of non-financial (non-economic) damages can be challenging to prove. They do have documentation but not bills or receipts. Non-financial damages can include:
- Physical disability
- Lasting disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Diminished quality of life
You do not have to figure this out on your own. Your Maryland personal injury lawyer will collect medical documentation like your medical records, written prognosis, and mental health care reports to prove the toll the accident has taken on your life.
What Is Recoverable Compensation In A Wrongful Death Claim?
If someone else’s negligence led to your loved one’s demise, you have our deepest condolences. You also have our commitment to helping you and your family recover wrongful death and survivor statute compensation after this painful experience, which can include:
- Your loved one’s burial and funeral expenses
- Loss of their income
- Loss of their household contributions
- Loss of consortium and companionship
- Loss of parental affection and guidance
We make sure your case is accurately valued. We also make sure the family members who qualify file the lawsuit within the time the state allows.

How Does Maryland Define Personal Injury Liability?
Personal injury cases can encompass a wide range of accidents and other types of injuries. The scope of personal injury cases can make it challenging to understand Maryland laws and how they apply to your specific case.
Our personal injury lawyers can help take the confusion out of your case and explain why you can recover damages from the at-fault party. That typically means proving their negligence is the reason you were hurt in the first place.
At Jenner Law, we investigate your personal injury claim on your behalf and prove the at-fault party:
- Owed you a duty of care
- Breached this duty to provide it
- Caused your injuries as a result of their breach
- Caused you financial damages
We will collect and organize evidence for you and use it to navigate the negotiation process with the insurance company.
What Is Duty of Care?
Duty of Care is a legal obligation that requires individuals and entities to act responsibly toward others. In the context of personal injury claims, it means that the defendant must have acted with reasonable care to prevent harm from coming to the people or property. This includes taking necessary precautions to protect the safety of others, such as following traffic laws or providing adequate warnings about potential hazards. If a person or entity fails to meet this duty of care, they can be held liable for any resulting medical expenses, permanent injuries, and other damages.
At Jenner Law, our personal injury attorneys have extensive experience in handling all types of personal injury cases.

You Have a Limited Time to File Per the Maryland Statute of Limitations
Most personal injury cases settle out of court, but we will file your lawsuit if there is a delay in negotiations with the at-fault party or their insurance adjusters. We take this protective step because there is a time limit (the three-year statute) to sue for compensation.
According to Md. Code, Cts. & Jud. Proc. § 5-101:
- You generally have three years from the date of the accident or injury to file your injury lawsuit if you or someone you love was injured.
- You generally have three years from the date of a loved one’s demise to file your wrongful death lawsuit if they were an accident fatality.
Our personal injury lawyer representing injured persons in Maryland will make sure you understand the state’s statute of limitations deadline. We also make sure you understand how and why it can change and how that could affect your filing deadline. The statute of limitations can be complicated. At Jenner Law, we make sure you do not run out of time to collect the damages you are due.
