Pedestrian Accidents in Maryland
People who are involved in pedestrian accidents are likely to suffer significant injuries. The fact that pedestrians have no protection during accidents means they are at an increased risk of suffering injuries that can be life-threatening. Some of the most common injuries that victims of pedestrian crashes are left with include:
Spinal cord injuries: People who suffer from these serious injuries often experience some extent of paralysis that can make it quite challenging to perform various tasks.
Broken bones: These painful injuries can require surgery. In some cases, victims may have to have bolts or wires implanted into their bones to fuse them together. Unfortunately, there are cases where broken bones result in the complete loss of limbs.
Back injuries: These incredibly debilitating injuries can make it quite challenging for victims to lift objects, sit down, and perform a variety of tasks. People who suffer from back injuries are often unable to return to work indefinitely.
