Pedestrian Accidents in Maryland
Suffering injuries as a pedestrian in an auto accident can have a profound impact on your life. Many people who are harmed under these circumstances are rushed to area hospitals and have to go through emergency surgery. Determining whether a victim suffered a traumatic brain injury, broken bones, and even internal organ damages, and treating these and other severe injuries, can be time-consuming and costly. Depending on the injuries that victims suffer from, they may have to remain hospitalized for several days or even weeks following their accidents. When accidents involve SUVs, pickup trucks, and other large vehicles, the chances of pedestrians suffering severe and life-threatening injuries are drastically higher.
