Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Maryland
We Have the Experience, Resources & Skill You Need
If you’ve suffered significant harm due to another person's or organization’s negligence or deliberate choices, you may be the victim of a personal injury. Maryland personal injury law allows victims to sue those who harmed them in any way — physically, financially, emotionally, or otherwise — for money to compensate them for those harms.
No one expects to be injured on the job or to be involved in a car accident when they begin their day. However, personal injury accidents occur more often than people think. Depending on the type and severity of the accident, they can be devastating to an individual and their family.
When a serious accident disrupts your life, you may not know where to turn. The Maryland personal injury attorneys at Alpert Schreyer Poe, LLC are here to help. We represent clients in injury claims arising from a wide variety of accidents, and we have been serving the injured for over 30 years.

What Damages Can Be Recovered in a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
When an individual suffers a personal injury because of someone else’s bad decisions, the responsible party should be held accountable for their actions. A victim with injuries has legal rights and deserves fair compensation for any losses as a result of the accident.
Some damages that you may be eligible for include, but are not limited to:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses
- Loss of income
- Property damage
For example, a personal injury lawsuit arising from a car crash might ask for money to pay for auto repairs, medical bills, to make up for lost wages, and to pay for a rental car. Furthermore, damages can compensate the victim for the loss of quality of life that comes with a serious injury and emotional trauma. A lawsuit arising from a premature death, which the law calls a wrongful death, might ask for money to compensate family members for their loved one’s lost income and funeral costs.
t is critical to have a skilled Maryland injury attorney calculate the value of your losses. At Alpert Schreyer Poe, we consider both past and future medical expenses, as well as future lost earnings, which can be complicated to estimate and prove. Calculating intangible losses can also be a complex process and our firm often consults with experts to determine how much a claim is worth. We know how to determine the full amount you deserve to cover all your losses, and we fight for maximum compensation in every case.

Proving Liability in a Personal Injury Lawsuit
Most personal injury cases stem from someone else’s negligence, meaning that had the proper precautions been taken, the accident that caused the injury would not have occurred. Individuals and companies have a duty of care to act responsibily and if they breach their duty and cause injury, the law deems them to be negligent and liable for the damages they caused.
The elements of negligence in a personal injury claim are:
- Duty of care - you were owed a legal duty by the defendant.
- Breach of duty - the defendant failed to uphold their duty either intentionally or through negligence.
- Cause of breach - the actions (in actions) of the defendant directly caused your injury.
- Damages - the breach of duty caused you or your loved one to suffer harm (physical or emotional).
Proving liability can be a daunting task for an injured person to accomplish on their own. Contacting a dedicated injury attorney who knows the law inside and out can help you understand your legal rights and options. In addition, a lawyer will be able to meticulously examine your personal injury case.
