I was in a Maryland Car Accident: What are my obligations?
Maryland car accident lawyers frequently get calls from prospective clients who have just been involved in an automobile accident. Often, those individuals are interested in gauging their responsibilities under the law. The driver of any vehicle involved in an accident involving death or injury must stop, stay at the scene, and render aid as applicable. Both drivers must provide their name, address, registration number, show his or her DL if asked, and provide insurance information. The information must be provided to both other driver[s] involved, as well as to the police. Seasoned Maryland car accident lawyers know that drivers involved in an accident causing injury must report that fact, and file their insurance information with the MVA.
