Traffic accidents are not uncommon on Maryland roads and remain one of the state’s leading contributors to deaths. These crashes happen for different reasons ranging from speeding, drunk driving, distracted driving to tailgating. When an accident happens, the victim can file an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit against the driver who caused it.
The preceding comes under the Maryland fault accident system. The victim will get economic and non-economic damages from the at-fault driver if they win. While this sounds easy, keep in mind that insurance companies are always after their bottom line and prefer not to pay compensation.
