I Didn’t Wear My Seat belt, Am I Negligent in Maryland?

Failure to wear a seatbelt in Marland is not considered contributory negligence. While not wearing a seatbelt is dangerous and a misdemeanor traffic violation, it does not contribute to the claimant’s ability to avoid the accident. In fact, in a Maryland personal injury trial, evidence of seat belt use cannot even be mentioned.
