The statute of limitations for medical malpractice in Marylandieither 5 years from the date of injury or 3 years from the date you became aware of it, whichever is earliest.
Use the Avvo attorney search feature and look for a lawyer who handles "civil rights violations." Not sure what the statute of limitations is for those claims in MD, but worth looking into if it's too late for a med/mal claim.
In addition to the other correct answers above, Maryland has a mandatory notice policy that requires you to put the state on notice of your potential claim against it. This notice provision falls under the Maryland tort claims act. This has a separate statute of limitations, would you must comply with in addition to the statue limitations for filing suit.
