When someone is injured as a result of another party’s negligence, the injured victim has the right to file a personal injury claim to seek compensation for their related losses—including medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Personal injury claims, however, are subject to statutes of limitations. In Maryland, most injury claims must be filed within three years of the date of the accident. If that time passes, it’s likely the victim will no longer be able to take legal action or be eligible for compensation. In some situations, however, especially when a minor is injured, exceptions are made to lengthen the statute of limitations.
