Suing Drivers Under the Influence

“I’ll be honest… I don’t like drunk or drugged drivers. I don’t have any tolerance or sympathy for them—especially when they injure or kill others. To sum it up, I love suing drunk drivers and welcome the opportunity to do so.” – J. Scott Robertson, Esq.

At Robertson & Robertson, we are accident attorneys who are experienced at handling civil lawsuits against drunk and drugged drivers.

Scott Robertson and Laura E. Robertson. Please feel free to call us today at 410-749-9111 for a free initial consultation.

If you are injured or a loved one is injured or killed due to the fault of a drugged or drunk driver, Robertson & Robertson, Accident & Injury Attorneys is your best choice for experienced, attentive, and aggressive legal representation. We are based on the Eastern Shore, but handle serious accident cases throughout the State of Maryland.

Attorney Scott Robertson spent the first eight years of his legal career defending negligent drivers on behalf of the insurance companies that insured them, including many cases involving intoxicated drivers and drivers under the influence of drugs. While he represented several insurance companies over the years, most of his work was for Allstate Insurance Company. In fact, for several years he was personally involved in the majority of lawsuits filed on the Eastern Shore against individuals insured by Allstate.

Working for insurance companies for several years gave Mr. Robertson great insight into how insurance companies and their adjusters think, operate, and evaluate injury claims. This is of great benefit to our current clients, as we know the “playbook” of the insurance companies and the methods they use to deny responsibility, devalue claims, and minimize settlements.

Since Mr. Robertson switched his practice several years ago from defending the insurance companies and at-fault drivers to representing the crash victims, Robertson & Robertson, Accident & Injury Attorneys has become the law firm of choice for victims of drunk or drugged drivers.

Our office provides straightforward communication, compassionate understanding, and diligent advocacy. Our attorneys and staff promptly return phone calls and address client questions. We believe that our commitment to our clients is unparalleled.

Many accident cases are settled without a lawsuit if the facts justify a settlement. We do not hesitate, however, to file a lawsuit against a driver that was under the influence of drugs or alcohol when causing an accident.

When a lawsuit is appropriate or necessary, you can be assured that we are experienced trial lawyers. In fact, Scott Robertson has been the lead attorney for the Plaintiff or the Defendant in approximately 200 personal injury trials arising out of car, truck, and motorcycle accidents.

Robertson & Robertson, Accident & Injury Attorneys is respected in the legal profession and by insurance adjusters across the state of Maryland. You can count on us for compassionate understanding, great communication, and diligent advocacy.

Scott Robertson previously served on the Board of Governors Maryland State Bar Association. From that prestigious board, he was elected to serve on the eight-member Executive Committee that oversaw the interests of the more than 30,000 Maryland lawyers. He also served as Co-Chairman of the Governance Committee of the Maryland State Bar Association.

Mr. Robertson was the 2004 statewide recipient of the Edward F. Shea, Jr. Professionalism Award from the Maryland Bar Foundation. He has also received the Top Leadership in Law Award from The Daily Record and the Partnership Award from the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service. He is a past president of the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce, the Salisbury Jaycees, the Wicomico County Bar Association, the Trustees of the Wicomico Public Library, and the Trinity United Methodist Church Board of Trustees. He is a past member of The Greater Salisbury Committee and currently serves as a Trustee at The Salisbury School.

Mr. Robertson, at the request of the Wicomico County Council, served as Chairman of the Wicomico County Charter Review Commission that authored a new Charter to move Wicomico County to a County Executive form of government.

In 1997, Scott Robertson received the prestigious Charles Kulp, Jr. Memorial Award from the United States Jaycees.

In 2006, Mr. Robertson suggested a new bill regarding the burden of proof in uninsured motorist car accident cases. The bill was introduced in the Maryland General Assembly, passed into law, and codified as Md. Courts and Judicial Proceedings Code Ann. § 10-921. It is now an important statute relied upon by all car accident lawyers in the state of Maryland.

Laura Robertson is the current chair of the Trinity United Methodist Church Safe Sanctuaries Committee. She previously served on the board of the Wor-Wic Community College Foundation and the Salisbury Neighborhood Housing Service. Laura is an experienced and respected personal injury attorney.

Robertson and Robertson are the most caring, knowledgeable and helpful group that I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. They made what could have been a stressful traumatic situation a smooth process. They handled every aspect of my case so that I could heal and return to a normal life.

Mr. Robertson and his associates helped me navigate through this experience. I had a devastating accident in December 2017. The accident not only caused me physical damage but also financial damage. Robertson & Robertson helped me recoup my losses so that I could regain the quality of life I had before the accident. They kept me informed every step of the way and whenever I called them, I received a prompt response. I highly recommend the law firm of Robertson & Robertson!

Robin N.

I personally recommend Scott Robertson's office to anyone in need of an attorney. I work with him on a professional level from a medical facility and have seen firsthand how his office is run. His level of professionalism sets the precedence for many. The highest compliment you can give is the gift of a referral, and I have referred family members and friends in need of an attorney to this office. At his office you will not be "just a number, " but his office will actually know who you are by name. You do not give them your "case number" as so many attorneys require, but they actually know YOU. The office staff is also friendly, knowledgeable, courteous...just wonderful. This office absolutely is an asset to our community!

Angela R.

From the moment we walked into their office to the regretful (that our wonderful meetings together were over) last goodbye we experienced nothing but sincere and continued compassion and caring. Mr. Robertson made us feel that he had all the bases covered, and he did! He was always available to answer any concerns or questions and, in the end, far exceeded our greatest expectations. He turned an unfortunate event around. We would recommend he and his office family to anyone that is looking for the best attorney on the shore!

Sherry B.

After being in a car accident, things just got too overwhelming for me to keep dealing with on my own. The constant phone calls, questions, and having to keep repeating myself over and over again with adjusters and insurance companies got to be way too much! A friend recommended Robertson & Robertson and it was the best thing I ever did! One meeting with Scott and Vera and everything was smooth sailing. They handled everything!! So welcoming. So easy to talk to. So comforting. I have never been through anything like this before, and they made this entire process so easy. Scott kept in constant touch every step of the way to keep me updated and fully aware of what was going on. I highly recommend Scott and his staff. I pray I will never need a lawyer again for myself or my family due to a car accident, however if I do, I feel comfort in knowing I have one that I can count on.

Cheri D.

I went to Robertson & Robertson after being in a head on collision. My sister and I had multiple serious injuries. The medical bills were piling up and the insurance companies were very confusing. Scott, Vera & David did an amazing job! They were very compassionate and professional. We were kept informed of everything along the way. We received a much larger settlement than we expected. I highly recommend the friendly experts at Robertson & Robertson.
