Personal injury cases can arise anywhere, and it is always important to document your claim as thoroughly as possible early on in the personal injury claim process.
Injuries to your body are never something that you would want to invite. However, in some circumstances the law would provide that you “assumed” the risk of injury by simply taking place in a certain activity, or by explicitly signing a waiver of claims prior to engage in said activity.
Maryland is also a state which enforces the “contributory negligence” doctrine which bars claims if a plaintiff is also at fault for a claim. However, there are work arounds to the harsh doctrine, such as the last clear chance principle, whereby if the defendant had the last chance to avoid an injury to the plaintiff, despite the plaintiff’s own negligence, the bar of contributory negligence can be avoided. These are often grey areas and 3 juries could come up with 3 separate findings of fact based on the same facts at trial.
