Car Accidents in Maryland
Over the last five years, each year saw an average of more than 115,000 auto accidents. The majority of these accidents took place on highways. While 28% of auto wrecks occurred on this type of road, another 23% occurred on county roads. More than 10% occurred on interstate highways. When accidents take involve vehicles traveling at a high rate of speed, there is an increased risk that people involved will suffer serious injuries.
When victims are hurt in crashes caused by drivers who speed or engage in other reckless actions, they may have legal options available. The state of Maryland is considered a tort state. This means that at-fault drivers assume liability for the resulting injuries and damages. In our state, victims are able to take legal action against negligent drivers to receive compensation for medical bills, repair expenses, and other financial burdens they face.
Although insurance companies are supposed to cover various costs for victims, they are often reluctant to do so.
