House Bill 825 Information
Posted on behalf of Goldberg Finnegan, LLC on Mar 16, 2010 in Car Accidents
House Bill 825 will be on the Maryland House of Delegates Floor for a vote tomorrow. It will raise minimum auto liability insurance limits from $20,000/$40,000.00 to $30,000/$60,000.00. This is a good bill for Maryland Residents as it provides protection in the event you or your loved ones are injured in a car accident that is not your fault. As the President of the Maryland Association for Justice, I have been working really hard with the MAJ Legislative Team to get this piece of legislation through and would appreciate your help. Please call your Maryland Delegates and urge them to "vote in favor of House Bill 825 which raises minimum auto liability limits from $20,000.00 to $30,000.00." CALLS NEED TO BE MADE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE TO BE EFFECTIVE SINCE the BILL WILL LIKELY BE VOTED ON TOMORROW.

By way of background, the $20,000.00 minimum limit was set in 1972 and has not increased since that time. Both VA and DC have $25,000.00 minimum limits. Many States have minimum limits of auto insurance well in excess of what Maryland has.
Thank you for your considering this request.
