Fatal Car Accidents in Maryland

Around 1,000 people lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents every year in the state of Maryland. In many instances, these crashes can be contributed to some form of negligence. We see many people harmed as a result of the following situations:

Drivers who are speeding: Thousands of wrecks occur every year in our state due to drivers who travel above the speed limit. When drivers are speeding, they often have a challenging time controlling their vehicles.

Drunk driving: When motorists enter, the roadway impaired by drugs are alcohol, they are less likely to maintain control over their vehicles. As a result, we see many people harmed by drunk drivers on roadways across our state.
