Injured Drivers And Passengers

It is not uncommon for drunk drivers to escape the accidents they cause with minimal injury. Unfortunately, it is often the other drivers and their passengers who are very seriously injured or even killed. We represent clients who have sustained traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries, as well as broken bones, amputations, burns and other life-changing injuries. We also represent families who have lost loved ones in fatal drunk driving accidents, taking action against the driver through a wrongful death lawsuit.

No Dram Shop Law In Maryland

In many states, dram shop laws exist that hold bars, restaurants and other liquor-serving establishments responsible if a patron caused an accident after being over-served at the establishment. However, Maryland is one of the few states that do not have any type of dram shop laws on the books. This means that if you were injured by a drunk driver, the only party that can be held responsible is the negligent driver who got behind the wheel after having too many drinks.
