Who Can You Bring In as a Defendant?
When you’ve been hurt in a car, truck or motorcycle accident in Maryland, your first thought is often to take legal action against the other driver, assuming he or she caused the crash. Sometimes, though, the other driver either doesn’t have insurance or has insufficient coverage to meet your needs. There are other potential sources of recovery after a motor vehicle wreck:
- You may be able to turn to your own insurer, if you have uninsured or underinsured motorists coverage
- You may be able to bring a lawsuit against the person or establishment providing the alcohol if you were injured by a drunk driver
- You may have a claim against the designer, manufacturer or marketer of a dangerous or defective product (car part) that contributed to or caused the accident
- You may have a claim against a municipality if the accident was a result of poor road maintenance
