When Does the Statute of Limitations Accrue in an Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Claim?

Posted: July 30, 2019 by Michael W. McGraw
On June 4, 2019, the Court of Special Appeals published Shilling v. Nationwide Ins. Co., 241 Md. App. 261 (2019), a decision that reversed the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County’s holding that Margaret Shilling’s underinsured motorist claim was barred by limitations.



A Plaintiff is Entitled to One Satisfaction for her Injuries, even when the alleged prior satisfaction is a settlement, not a judgment

Maryland’s courts have long-recognized that multiple tortfeasors can contribute to a plaintiff’s injuries, and that the plaintiff is entitled to only one satisfaction for her injuries.  For example, a driver injured in a car accident can recover (from the at-fault driver) for injuries arising from errors made by her treating doctors.
