Pedestrian Accidents in Maryland
Each year, over 100 people are fatally injured in pedestrian accidents in the state of Maryland. The majority of these fatal crashes occur in Ann Arundel County, Baltimore County, Prince George’s County, and right here in Montgomery County. Not only are we seeing many pedestrians fatally injured in crashes, but they are being harmed quite often as well.
To combat the high number of pedestrian crashes, Baltimore installed several speed cameras in construction zones and schools in order to catch people who violate speed laws. The goal is to make the area safer for pedestrians in areas that are common for pedestrian traffic. Although these efforts have been effective, we continue to see people harmed each day in these accidents.
Pedestrian accidents are usually more severe in nature than other types of collisions. Pedestrians are unprotected and completely vulnerable to the impact of vehicles. Not only are many people left with painful injuries, but they endure towering financial impacts as well. When people suffer injuries in pedestrian crashes, they must seek the guidance of a North Bethesda pedestrian accident lawyer right away.
