Pedestrian Accidents in MarylandHundreds of pedestrians are hurt in auto wrecks across Maryland each year. Many people harmed in these crashes suffer injuries that can be life-changing. This can include:
Spinal Cord Injuries: Spinal cord injuries are catastrophic in nature. They require extensive care and rehabilitation. Many spinal cord injury sufferers are left paralyzed to some extent. Pedestrians are incredibly vulnerable to these severe injuries.
Soft Tissue Injuries: Neck and soft tissue injuries are very common among pedestrian crash victims. Suffering injuries to the neck can be extremely debilitating and require long-term care.
Amputation Injuries: Many people hurt in pedestrian accidents incur bone fractures that are so severe that they lead to amputations. It is common for pedestrians to lose hands, feet, arms, and legs in crashes.
Traumatic Brain Injuries: Victims of pedestrian crashes often suffer TBIs in crashes. The force of the impact of collisions can cause pedestrians to be lifted up and ejected. They are often thrown into other objects and hard surfaces causing severe injuries to the head.
