A: A Maryland attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. I'm sorry for the injuries you suffered from your exposure. Ordinary, statutes of limitations for injury cases nationwide are only in the order of several years, even in the most lenient jurisdictions. But cases involving toxic substances or other forms of chemical exposure can be different than traditional physical injury cases with clear-cut damages, such as a fracture from a motor vehicle accident. The best way to answer your question could be to try to arrange a free initial consultation with law firms that handle such cases. Good luck
