DUI Suspected in Maryland Car Crash

By Alpert Schreyer on August 25, 2014

Alcohol may have been a contributing factor in a Maryland car accident that resulted in life-threatening injuries to a young driver as well as injuries to her two passengers. According to a WBOC news report, the car crash occurred in Dorchester County. Officials say the 18-year-old driver may have been speeding on a curve when she lost control of her 2009 Pontiac. The vehicle left the roadway and struck an electrical pole. The driver was ejected from her vehicle and sustained life-threatening injuries. Her two passengers were injured as well.

Underage drinking is a serious problem in Maryland. According to statistics gathered by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), 27.3 percent of people aged 12 to 20 in Maryland drank alcohol in the past month. That is 194,000 underage drinkers statewide, many of which are drivers. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), about 32 percent of all traffic deaths in Maryland in the year 2012 involved alcohol. During that same year, there were 2,474 alcohol-related crashes and 978 alcohol-related crash injuries statewide.

If you are injured in a Maryland DUI crash, even if you are a passenger in the at-fault driver’s vehicle, you may be able to pursue financial compensation for your injuries and losses. Drunk drivers can be held accountable for medical bills, pain and suffering, time away from work, the cost of rehabilitation services and other related damages. Injured victims would be well advised to seek the counsel of an experienced Maryland personal injury attorney to obtain more information about pursuing their legal rights.
