Is The Driver Of The Car That Hit Me Responsible For My Medical Bills And Injuries?

All Maryland drivers are charged with the obligation of using reasonable care for the safety of others when driving. Many Baltimore personal injury lawsuits come about when a driver fails to use that degree of caution and attention that an ordinary person would use under the circumstances. The nature of the duty may change depending on the circumstances [e.g. adverse weather conditions]. The driver of a vehicle is not necessarily the same person as the owner.

The driver is of course responsible for his or her conduct. If the driver is using the car with owner's permission, there will be insurance coverage for the accident.
