What Is Negligence In An Auto Accident Claim?
While you may be a safe driver, you can still be hurt in a car accident because of other people’s negligence. Negligence is when someone else’s actions or incompetence cause you harm. For instance, if a driver is speeding and loses control of their vehicle, they can badly injure you in a collision.
Many different forms of negligence can lead to car accidents in Baltimore. Our streets can be narrow, and bad weather is not unexpected. Plus, let’s face it, sometimes we are not the most patient of drivers in Baltimore.
No matter what caused your accident, it’s important to determine the cause, so your legal counsel can secure compensation.
According to Zero Deaths Maryland, an average of nearly 31,000 people were injured in Maryland car accidents between 2017 and 2021. Some of the most common causes include:
- Intoxicated driving
- Aggressive driving
- Distracted driving (accounting for around half of all accidents)

Whose Insurance Company Pays for Damages?
Maryland follows the at-fault doctrine for personal injury cases, meaning whoever is at fault for a car accident pays for the victim’s losses. However, Maryland also follows a law known as contributory negligence. This means that the at-fault party must be 100 percent responsible for your accident, or they cannot legally be compelled to pay for your losses.
Our lawyers will seek compensation through the at-fault party’s insurer when we prove they were to blame for the accident. In the event of multiple at-fault parties, we will seek damages from all of them. It can be difficult to determine who may have contributed to your accident while you’re still recovering from the trauma. Leave the investigation to us.
Dealing With the Insurance Company
Filing a claim with an insurance company includes several steps.
- First, your lawyer will gather evidence to determine who is at fault for your accident.
- Second, we will use the evidence at our disposal to compel the insurer to pay for your losses.
- Third, we will negotiate a settlement that compensates you for your injuries and other losses.
If the insurer refuses to offer a fair settlement, or if your lawyer deems it necessary for another reason, we may pursue your financial award in court.
Some insurers refuse to negotiate in good faith and can be challenging to work with. Our car accident attorney will protect your rights and best interests in negotiations. If it comes to a lawsuit, we will make sure you are prepared for the proceedings.
Breaking Traffic Laws Is Negligent Behviour
Traffic laws are in place for the safety of all road users. Drivers who break these laws are the most common causes of collisions. If the at-fault party in your accident broke the law, they should be compelled to pay for your losses. Your lawyer can find and use evidence of their traffic violation to fight for your compensation.
