Driving safely is key to making sure you and others on the road get home or to where you’re going safely. You take your responsibility as a driver seriously, but others may not do the same. When people get behind the wheel when they’re drunk or too tired, distracted or unwell, they’re putting themselves and others at risk. The same is true if they decide to break traffic laws or make stupid mistakes when driving.
When you’re in an accident because someone was intoxicated or acting negligently, it’s your right to pursue that person for compensation. If the person has insurance, you can seek compensation by making a claim. If not, a personal injury claim may be beneficial to your case.
In this case, two people were seriously hurt in a two-car collision that took place in Odenton. While police have not stated who was at fault, both drivers and a passenger were injured, so at least one will be able to make a claim once the investigation is complete. In crashes, it’s possible for both parties to be partially liable, but if it can be proven that one party broke the law or was acting negligently, then that party will be held liable.
After this collision near Sandy Walk Way, two people were trapped inside a vehicle. The first, a 20-year-old woman, was extricated and taken to the hospital with serious injuries. The second person was also in the same vehicle; the driver, a 50-year-old woman, was also extricated and taken to Shock Trauma with serious injuries. In the other vehicle, the driver suffered minor injuries and was transferred to Anne Arundel Medical Center.
