Can I Sue The Driver Of The Car I Was Riding In If I Was Injured In A Maryland Car Accident?

As Attorney Eric T. Kirk will tell you.

A driver is always responsible if they were negligent.



Yes, you can, so long as there’s some reason to believe that that individual caused or in some way was responsible for the accident. Maryland law has no rule that you can’t sue the driver of the car in which you were riding. You can certainly bring a claim against them and the driver of any other vehicle that was involved in the accident, so long as an act of negligence or a violation of the rules of the road caused or contributed to the accident.

Suing the driver of your vehicle for negligence is different than bringing a claim for Personal Injury Protection or medical payments coverage against the policy that insured the car.

I hope this addressed your question. Over the course of 25 years, I’ve found that fully addressing a legal question is best handled in a one-on-one, in person strategy and case analysis conference. I offer these to potential clients on a complimentary basis. Please use any of the methods under the contact tab at the top of the page to arrange yours.
