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 we expect the Governor to sign the bill soon. The bill will go into effect next year.
Again, this bill is long overdue and will not provide an actual solution to serious injury and wrongful death cases where there is inadequate insurance. It is a moderate but meaningful step in the right direction.
