Car Accidents in Maryland

Car crashes in Maryland leave over 100,000 people injured every year. These collisions can often be contributed to some form of negligence. We see tens of thousands of people hurt in auto wrecks as a result of drivers who are speeding. Traveling too fast for roadways can make it nearly impossible for drivers to maintain control of their vehicles. There are also many crashes caused by motorists who fail to yield the right of way. Running stop signs and not allowing other vehicles to make turns and travel when they have the right to do so is often a common factor in broadside crashes.

Other leading causes of auto accidents in Maryland are driving while distracted, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or even aggressive driving behaviors. If you are hurt in an auto accident as a result of another driver’s malicious, reckless, or negligent actions, you may be able to recover compensation.
