Pedestrian Accidents in Maryland
Over 100 pedestrians suffer fatal injuries in vehicle crashes each year in Maryland. Countless others suffer injuries that leave them in need of immediate medical care. Pedestrians are particularly vulnerable during crashes due to the fact that they are not equipped with full-body protection.
Pedestrians hurt in crashes deal with more than just painful physical injuries. Many suffer emotional harm as well. We see many people forced to go through mental health treatment for anxiety, depression, and posttraumatic stress disorder. These unseen injuries can truly have a negative impact on a person’s life. Feeling helpless and hopeless while dealing with painful injuries is truly so challenging to deal with.
