One of the main things to be aware of when filing a personal injury case in Maryland is the concept of contributory negligence. This means that if a plaintiff has been negligent and contributed towards their injuries in some way, then the plaintiff may be barred from recovering damages from the defendant. Because every case is unique, whether or not contributory negligence will apply depends largely on the circumstances of each situation.
