Pedestrian Accidents in Maryland
Every year, thousands of pedestrians are fatally injured in motor vehicle wrecks across the United States. Here in Maryland, we see a significant number of people left to deal with painful injuries as a result of pedestrian accidents.
When pedestrians are harmed in crashes, they are at a greater risk of suffering severe injuries due to the fact that they are unprotected. Pedestrians in Maryland car crashes are often left with compound fractures, spinal cord injuries, and even traumatic brain injuries following their crashes.
Pedestrians are often required to go through extensive medical care. Many injured victims have to go through emergency surgery and spend weeks off work to recover. Dealing with painful injuries while combating towering medical expenses can seem impossible. However, victims often have legal options available to help them recover.
