The Maryland Senate passed HB 825 which increases the minimum minimum limits of car insurance liability coverage in Maryland from $20,000.00/$40,000.00 to $30,000.00/$60,000.00. The Maryland House of Delegates has already approved the bill and the Governor is expected to sign the bill in the near future. The bill will go into effect next year.
Again, this bill is long overdue and is not going to provide a real solution to serious injury and wrongful death cases where there is inadequate insurance. It is a moderate but meaningful step in the right direction.
