Car Accident Liability
Who is responsible for my car accident?
After a car accident, the most important step in the damage recovery process is to establish liability. The person responsible for causing your accident is legally known as the “liable party” and can be required to compensate you for your injuries and property damages if you file a claim. Liability must be established by providing solid evidence that the person’s negligence, recklessness, or incompetence when driving their vehicle was the direct result of your accident. Maryland also has a law called contributory negligence, which provides that if you were 1 percent at fault for your injury you cannot recover. Accordingly, it is important to hire a Maryland personal injury lawyer who can help you prove that you are not liable, even in part, in order to win the compensation that you need.
