Notice Requirements to Maryland State Government

The Maryland Tort Claims Act requires that individuals injured by the negligence of State agents or employees must notify the State Treasurer or a designee of the Treasurer within one (1) year after the injury in order to file suit. The notification must be in writing.

Furthermore, in order to file an action the State Treasurer or designee must issue a final denial of the claim AND the action has to be filed within three (3) years from when the cause of the action arises.

Please be aware that the above listed notice requirements are believed to be correct as of the date of authorship. It is recommended, however, that you consult with an experienced and qualified attorney regarding your own particular injury or accident and whether any notice requirements apply.
