Liability in a Rear-End Collision
When one driver rear-ends a leading car, there is a strong presumption
that they are at fault. However, Maryland is a “contributory negligence”
state in relation to car accidents, which means that if a victim shares
any responsibility for an accident, they may not be able to take legal action.
In order for you to receive monetary compensation, the other driver must
be completely responsible for an accident. For this reason, it is vital
to consult with an experienced and knowledgeable attorney before attempting
to negotiate a settlement.
Common causes of rear-end accidents can include:
Depending on when an accident occurred, a victim may be able to seek legal
compensation for injuries that occurred in the past. Laws which dictate
how long a person has to file a claim are known as the statute of limitations.
In Maryland, the statute of limitations allows a victim three years in
order to file a personal injury or property damage claim. This date typically
beings on the day an accident occurred or the date which your injuries
were discovered. If you think that you may have a claim, it is important
to act quickly as missing this deadline may negate your ability to collect
