Pedestrian Accidents in MarylandEach year, more than one hundred people are struck and fatally injured by vehicles in the state of Maryland. These accidents are often associated with some form of negligence. Many people end up fatally injured in crashes as a result of drivers who are distracted by their cell phones, talking with others in the back seat, impaired, or engaging in reckless behaviors while operating their vehicles. Although these accidents take the lives of many people, we see thousands more who are left with injuries that require some form of medical care.
Pedestrians do not have anything around them to protect them in the event of auto collisions. As a result, these victims are likely to require surgery and long-term care for spinal cord injuries, internal organ damage, and even traumatic brain injuries.
