Did you know that Maryland and D.C. use one of the harshest liability apportionment laws in the United States? If an injury victim is found to be just 1% at fault, they are barred from recovering compensation for their injuries—even if they’ve been left with a permanent disability that will require expensive ongoing care and limit their ability to return to work. This means it’s absolutely vital that you contact an experienced personal injury attorney at Sussman & Simcox as soon as possible if you or your loved one have been injured in an accident caused by another party. Without legal representation, your right to recover damages is at risk.
