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.

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.
