Maryland Uninsured Motorist Statute

Car insurance is mandatory throughout the country, including Maryland. Yet you would be amazed how many uninsured motorist claims we see every week. As many as 20% of Americans do not have car insurance. The numbers in Maryland have not been estimated in years (that I have seen, anyway) but while not approaching that figure, the number is still too high.

In Maryland, the legislature made uninsured motorist coverage mandatory in 1975.
