What Should I do If I Get in an Accident With an Uninsured Motorist in Maryland?

Car accidents are extremely stressful, however, if you were just involved in an auto accident with a motorist who does not have insurance, you may be facing an even more uncertain process going forward. Fortunately, our firm has helped individuals throughout Maryland file claims after sustaining injuries in accidents with uninsured or underinsured motorists for years, and we are ready to do the same for you. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Maryland personal injury attorneys to learn more about how we can help. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of car accidents in Maryland?

Car accidents happen for various reasons, though in most cases, they are a result of sheer negligence. Among the most common causes of car accidents in Maryland is texting and driving (or otherwise driving distracted), driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, speeding, and any other way in which a motorist disregards the rules and regulations of the road.

What should I do if I find out the other person does not have car insurance?

In Maryland, individuals are required to purchase uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage. This means that if you were involved in a car accident with an uninsured motorist, you can file a claim against your own insurance company to win the compensation you need. That being said, your insurance company may low-ball you and make an offer that simply does not cover the extent of your injuries. When this happens, you will have to retain the services of an experienced attorney who can fight to achieve the maximum compensation on your behalf.

Our firm will work to uncover pictures of your accident, medical documents, police reports, witness testimony, and even subpoena security camera footage of your accident as it happened. We are ready to help you–all you have to do is ask.

How long do I have to sue for an injury in Maryland?

People in Maryland must abide by the statute of limitations. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland is three years, you will have three years to sue for your injuries. If you wait past the three-year mark, you will generally be denied your right to compensation, so ensure you reach out to our experienced team today.
