Maryland Good Samaritan Law

The State of Maryland has enacted a Good Samaritan Law to protect individuals from liability when aiding a victim during an emergency.  The Maryland Good Samaritan Law states the following:

"c. An individual who is not covered otherwise by this section is not civilly liable for any act or omission in providing assistance or medical aid to a victim at the scene of an emergency, if:

1. The assistance or aid is provided in a reasonably prudent manner;

2. The assistance or aid is provided without fee or other compensation; and

3. The individual relinquishes care of the victim when someone who is licensed or certified by this State to provide medical care or services becomes available to take responsibility."
