Knowingly Driving Without Insurance

Get Experienced Legal Help from a Baltimore Traffic Ticket Attorney

Maryland requires all vehicles to be ensured to protect state driver’s in the event of an accident—with the minimum amounts being $30,000 for bodily injury per person, $60,000 bodily injury per crash, and $15,000 for property damage. If an uninsured motorist is involved in a collision with another driver, not only may they be financially responsible for any corresponding damages and injuries, but they also face criminal charges for knowingly driving without insurance.

If you have been charged with driving without insurance in Baltimore, I am ready to help you avoid the criminal penalties you face. In order for the prosecution to prove your guilt, they must have proof that you were aware the vehicle was insured. There are many legal defenses available. I could assess your case, determine which defenses apply to your case, and help you get the most favorable results.

Penalties for Driving Without Insurance in Maryland

Driving without insurance in Maryland is a misdemeanor crime. This means not only do you have to pay expensive fines if convicted, but you may also be sentenced to jail or get your driver’s license revoked.

For a first-time offense, a conviction is punishable by a maximum one-year jail term, a fine not exceeding $1,000, and five points on your driving record. For a second offense, a conviction carries a jail sentence of up to two years, a maximum $2,000 fine, and another five points on your license, which could lead to license suspension.

If you forget to renew your insurance, you could face costly administrative fines from the MVA—even if you don’t receive a ticket for driving without insurance. Insurance lapse penalties include losing your driver’s license and/or vehicle registration, fees of $150 for the first 30 days then $7 for each day of the lapse (at a maximum $2,500), a $25 fee for restoring your vehicle’s registration, and other penalties.

  • Highly recommend!

    “Mark was a great fit for me, as a lawyer. Right from the beginning I felt comfortable with him and he felt confident we could win my case. Mark kept in touch and always returned my calls and emails quickly. He came fully prepared to court and ready for trial, my case was dismissed and my record cleared. I would definitely recommend him for anyone that finds themselves in a similar situation. Thank you!”

  • "A TRUE WINNER!!!!!!"

    “Words cannot describe alone how Mark saved my life. Mark made me feel at ease and that everything would be ok. He was a constant professional. My advice to everyone is if Mark tells you to do something do it he knows what he is talking about. In court Mark worked magic everything was drooped and now I still have my job. Thank you so much Mark, you truly are a winner.”

  • Mark Scheuerman is, in every way, a fantastic lawyer.

    “Mark Scheuerman is, in every way, a fantastic lawyer. He represented me two days in a row, and within a week of being hired. Both court dates had nothing short of fantastic outcomes. He really cares about people, and it shows in the way he conducts himself in and out of the courtroom. He just loves what he does, which makes the process much more smooth. His prices were extremely fair as well, considering the caliber of work you're getting out of it.”
