Fatal Auto Accidents in Maryland
Fatal accidents in Maryland take the lives of hundreds of people every year. Unfortunately, many of these accidents are completely preventable. Acts of negligence continue to play a leading role in many of the fatal collisions reported statewide.
Factors in automobile collisions across our state include speeding, driving while impaired, and distractions. Even though we have several laws in place to prevent drivers from engaging in negligent and careless actions, we continue to see innocent lives lost as a result of drivers who choose to do so.
After losing a loved one in a fatal collision, families are often afforded the legal right to seek compensation from those who are responsible. When it comes to accidents involving semi-trucks, there are typically several parties who can be held liable for any resulting damages or injuries. The most obvious party to file a wrongful death claim against is the driver of the truck. Other parties that you may be able to pursue compensation from include the trucking company, the cargo company, the maintenance company, or even the owner of the truck if it is different from the driver or the trucking company.
