Contributory negligence and Maryland car accidents

Did you know that Maryland state law can have a huge impact on the result of a personal injury case after a car accident? Maryland is one of only a handful of states to recognize contributory negligence laws in cases of personal injury. For car accidents, the law applies to situations in which a person is even the tiniest bit responsible for causing the accident.

How does contributory negligence affect car accident cases?

Car crashes might be an everyday occurrence in Maryland, but that doesn't make it any easier to deal with when you find yourself the victim of a car accident. Even seemingly minor fender-benders can cause injuries that can take a long time (and a lot of money) to recover from. In these situations, car accident victims may wonder if they have any recourse. One option that might be available to some is to pursue a lawsuit based on negligence.
