What is statue of limitation for tort and emotional distress?

In Maryland. If for one year can it be extended for two year?

Negligence is 3 years, intentional torts is 1 year, and fraud is 3 years from discovery.

Limitations can be extended by express agreement of the parties, or legal disability of the injured party. Limitations is tolled while a case is pending. If the case is dismissed, the remaining limitation period begins to run.
