Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of death in the United States. Traffic collisions occur for different reasons and when people least expect it. Common reasons for crashes include drunk driving, distracted driving, speeding, tailgating, running red lights, illegal lane change, etc.

Maryland law allows the crash victim to file a compensation claim against the driver responsible for the accident. The victim does this through an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit. A successful claim means economic and non-economic damages.

The two cover past, present, and future medical expenses, lost wages, property damage or vehicle repair, pain and suffering, emotional anguish, etc. Winning the claim against the fault party is easier when working with an experienced Maryland car accident lawyer.
