Pedestrian Accidents in Maryland
Every year, thousands of pedestrians are hurt as a result of collisions in our state. These crashes are often preventable. However, many people end up suffering severe injuries as a result of drivers who are reckless and negligent while operating their vehicles. We see many people left with traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and even severely broken bones as a result of pedestrian crashes in our state.
Unfortunately, these crashes are often caused by drivers who choose to speed, use their cell phones while operating their vehicles, and those who engage in reckless and negligent actions.
