Determining Fault After a Car Accident 

Because Maryland is one of few states to follow the plaintiff-unfriendly rule of contributory negligence, you must prove that another person or party was entirely at fault for an accident if you wish to file an injury claim. If you are found to be even one percent to blame, you are barred from bringing a claim or recovering any compensation for your damages. 

However, it is not always easy to prove that someone else was completely at fault. First, you will need to identify the exact cause of the accident; then, you will need to show how the cause was related to the defendant’s negligent or wrongful conduct. 

Some common causes of car accidents which may be attributed to negligence or wrongful conduct include, but are not limited to:

  • Speeding 
  • Distracted driving 
  • Texting 
  • Drunk driving 
  • Drugged driving 
  • Unlawful turns 
  • Aggressive driving 
  • Road rage 
  • Tailgating 
  • Traffic violations
  • Careless or reckless driving 
  • Dangerous maneuvers 
  • Sudden stops
  • Swerving 

All motorists have a responsibility to pay attention, follow the rules of the road, and take reasonable measures to prevent accidents. When a driver causes an accident by failing to uphold this duty of care, they can be held legally accountable for the victim’s damages. 

Get the Compensation You Deserve

Motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause of catastrophic injury and wrongful death in the United States. Even a seemingly minor collision can result in serious, life-changing injuries. 

Often, victims face extensive medical care, which comes with exorbitant costs, not to mention months, weeks, or even years out of work. They may even be permanently disabled and/or unable to obtain any form of gainful employment. 

Collectively, the economic and non-economic damages you suffer after an accident or injury are known as “damages.” By filing a car accident injury claim, you can seek fair financial compensation for these damages. 

While this cannot undo the pain and suffering you have endured, it can allow you to secure the financial resources you need to manage unexpected costs related to your injury, as well as heal and move forward with your life. 

Damages you may be able to recover after an auto accident include:

  • Medical expenses 
  • Future medical care costs 
  • Mental and physical pain and suffering 
  • Lost wages and employment benefits 
  • Loss of future earnings 
  • Diminished earning capacity 
  • Lost quality of life
  • Disfigurement 
  • Emotional distress

Proving Liability

In order to recover compensation for your injuries and other losses, it must be proven that another party was at fault for your crash.

Act Quickly After a Crash

It’s important that you act quickly after a crash, as you only have three years from the date of the accident (or injury) to file a car accident lawsuit in Maryland. If the statute of limitations expires before you file your claim, you can expect your case to be dismissed.
