As an experienced Maryland personal injury lawyer, I see many injured victims in automobile accidents who are afraid to seek recovery for damages because they either are driving uninsured or their driver’s license is suspended.
Maryland law does not discriminate against victims of other people’s negligence because they are uninsured or their driver’s license is suspended. Maryland accident or negligence law only recognizes contributory negligence. Driving without insurance or a valid Maryland driver’s license is not recognized as contributory negligence in Maryland. Accident victims in Maryland can proceed to recover damages despite these perceived problems.
