Car Accidents in Maryland
Every year, over 120,000 people are harmed by motor vehicle accidents in the state of Maryland. Head-on collisions are more likely to result in severe injuries for those involved. The chances of suffering severe injuries are also increased when people become pinned inside of their vehicles. Not only does being trapped in your vehicle mean you are more likely to sustain more traumatic injuries, but it also prevents you from getting timely medical care.
People who are involved in accidents across our state are often left with severe injuries like:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Severely broken bones
- Neck and soft tissue injuries
- Back injuries
- Burn injuries
