Fatal Car Accidents in Maryland

The unfortunate truth is that hundreds of people lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents across the state of Maryland each year. Although our state has several laws in place to ensure people operate their vehicles in a responsible manner, we continue to see innocent parties affected by drivers who engage in negligent actions while operating their vehicles.

  • Some of the leading causes of accidents in our state include:
  • Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Drivers who are speeding
  • Drivers who fail to yield the right of way
  • Drivers who are distracted

Although this list is not all-inclusive, acts of negligence are a factor in more than 80% of auto wrecks each year. When families lose loved ones in accidents, they often deal with a wide range of consequences.

In some instances, families can seek legal guidance from a wrongful death lawyer in Baltimore. Families affected by fatal crashes are often able to obtain compensation for lost earning capacity, the loss of inheritance, funeral costs, and more.
