Laurel Maryland Accident Attorneys - Consumer Alerts - November 2010

NOVEMBER 2, 2010 ELECTION - VOTE FOR QUESTION #2 - raising the jury trial threshold to $15,000.00.

If you are injured in a motor vehicle collision or other accident and claim more than $10,000.00 in medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering, the person who caused the accident can force your case to be tried by a jury in Circuit Court rather than a Judge in District Court. This can be done despite the fact that the jurisdiction of the District Court is up to $30,000.00. In Circuit Court you can wait a year or more for your trial, the trial usually takes several days and you often have to spend thousands of dollars for depositions and expert witnesses.

McGowan & Cecil frequently file personal injury claims for their clients in District Court when they are claiming less than $15,000.00 in damages. In District Court we can get a quicker and shorter trial and the costs to our clients are substantially less.

VOTE FOR QUESTION #2 ON NOVEMBER 2, 2010. It will allow you to keep your claim for less than $15,000.00 in District Court.
