Pedestrian Accidents in Maryland
More than a thousand pedestrians are hurt in auto accidents in Maryland each year. These incidents are often unpredictable. Many people who are involved in pedestrian accidents are left injured.
In many instances, these injuries include broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and internal organ damage. These injuries are incredibly painful. Additionally, they often require emergency medical care. Some injuries can be life-threatening and demand ongoing care for months. People hurt in pedestrian crashes suffer mental, physical, and financial consequences. Not being able to work due to the recovery process can make it challenging for victims to cover medical expenses and other costs of living.
In many instances, pedestrians can seek compensation from at-fault drivers by filing a personal injury lawsuit. These lawsuits allow victims to get money for medical expenses, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and more. A fearless pedestrian accident lawyer in Bethesda can help you get the maximum amount of compensation available to cover your damages.
