If you are in an accident, one of the first questions you may be asked is to what degree you were responsible for the incident. That’s called comparative negligence and it’s the standard in almost every state.
A serious multi-vehicle crash in Oxon Hill led to the tragic deaths of three children, according to local police. Very little information has been gathered about the accident so far, but Maryland authorities also confirmed that two adults were injured. Charges have not been filed at this time, but as with most motor vehicle accidents, this tragic crash is still under investigation.
Cars and trucks have coexisted on the nation's highways for many years. As life becomes more hurried and deadlines tighter, this coexistence has the potential to become increasingly dangerous in Maryland and other states. Truck drivers push the boundaries of fatigue in an effort to keep to tight schedules. Tragic motor vehicle accidents can result.
