Car Accidents in Maryland
People hurt in motor vehicle crashes often deal with an array of consequences. These include:
- Mental consequences: Many people who are hurt in crashes are left feeling hopeless and helpless. A lot of victims suffer from some extent of posttraumatic stress disorder and even depression. Dealing with other consequences from crashes can be incredibly exhausting from a mental and emotional standpoint.
- Physical: People who are involved in crashes often suffer painful physical injuries. Many victims require emergency surgery. A significant percentage of victims have to go through therapy and other long-term care as well.
- Financial: Covering towering medical expenses, dealing with lost wages, and repairing vehicles can be quite costly. A lot of victims and their families struggle throughout the recovery process when it comes to covering these costs.
Unfortunately, as long as drivers are going to continue acting recklessly while operating their vehicles, we are going to continue seeing people struggle.
