What is Maryland’s Reckless Endangerment Law?

In Maryland, reckless endangerment involves causing someone else a substantial risk of severe bodily harm or death. There are numerous situations where reckless endangerment charges may apply, so each case is evaluated individually based on the circumstances.

Reckless endangerment charges can arise from things like inciting violence, throwing an object into a crowd, using explosives or firearms, tampering with safety equipment, or even doing something in traffic that poses harm to others on the road. Take reckless endangerment charges seriously because they could result in a $5,000 fine and/or 5 years in prison.
