MARYLAND CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER What is a garnishment?


We've discussed in other chapters the bane of Baltimore personal injury litigation – the uninsured defendant. There are more than a few Maryland car accident lawyers who've obtained sizeable judgments for the victims of Baltimore auto accidents, but can't collect because that defendant has no insurance, no job, and no assets. A case against an uninsured person may have no value at all. Maryland law allows for a garnishment of a judgment debtor's wages, generally up to 25% of the "disposable wages, and obligates employers to make the deductions and forward the payments to the judgment creditor.
