How Each Maryland County Values Injuries at Trial

Victims generally understand little about the connection between the value of your claim and the jurisdiction of your case.  Maryland has jurisdictions that are very good for personal injury victims and jurisdictions that make claims much more challenging.  There are some Maryland counties where the value of the claim is worth half what it might be in another jurisdiction.  

Below we review every county to give you some idea of which counties are most favorable to personal injury victims.

Maryland Courts: The Low Down on Different Jurisdictions in Maryland
The true answer on jurisdiction is that there are two great jurisdictions in Maryland: Baltimore City and Prince George's County.  In 98% of personal injury cases, you are going to want jurisdiction in one of those venues over any other jurisdiction.

The value in other jurisdictions is much lower.  How much lower?  It depends on the the jurisdiction, obviously.  There are places on the Eastern Shore where a quality jury award has not been given in years.  

But... that is a little misleading, too.  Why?  The reality is that a great case is a great case anywhere.  A great case rarely goes to trial.  Just because you do not see big verdicts out of many of these jurisdictions does not mean that there are not big settlements.  Cases in the more difficult jurisdictions are even more likely to settle because the lawyers in those jurisdictions are not used to big numbers. The result?  They do not push the insurance company as far as they can.

  • The entire team from the intake Samantha to the lawyer himself (Ron Miller) has been really approachable.
    ★★★★★
  • The case settled and I got a lot more money than I expected. Ron even fought to reduce how much I owed in medical bills so I could get an even larger settlement.
    ★★★★★
  • Miller and Zois is the best firm in the state of Maryland, and without their support, understanding, and just being there when I needed encouragement, I truly do not know how I would have succeeded without them.
