Maryland laws and the car accident you've suffered through

Following an accident in Maryland, there are several things you need to do. First of all, you should always make sure that you and the driver who hit you get the medical attention you need. Although this situation is serious, medical care is the first priority and should override any other issue.

If the driver who struck you was uninsured, then he may lose his license according to Maryland's laws. If the driver was drunk at the time of the accident, then the driver will face a DUI charge. This charge means that the driver's blood alcohol concentration was .08 percent or higher at the time of your accident. In Maryland, 12 points are automatically assessed against any drunk driver, which means the license will be automatically revoked.

It's probable that once you're able to speak with police, they'll have you fill out a report of what happened. Witnesses may also speak to police to help them understand what happened to cause the accident. These testimonies may work well to help you in court if you choose to pursue a civil lawsuit, which can help you seek compensation for your injuries.

Following the accident, a team may reconstruct the accident, and others may come to the scene to assess damage. Insurance providers may look at this information to offer a settlement, so it's important to discuss your case with someone to make sure you're being offered a fair amount of compensation for your injuries. Don't take the first offer without considering what you'll need; you deserve money for time missed from work, medical bills, pain and suffering and additional medical needs.
