Bay Bridge Accident Lawsuit

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
The victims and families of the victims in a car accident on the Bay Bridge have filed a lawsuit against the the state of Maryland and several other drivers. The lawsuit alleges the Maryland Transit Administration was negligent because it knew that similar accidents had happened before on the Bay Bridge but failed to address the safety risks.

Under Maryland law, this claim is capped at $200,000 per person.  Think about that: if the state of Maryland kills someone, their obligation is $200,000.  It is an old and outdated law and the Maryland Tort Claims Act should be changed.
