Pedestrian Accidents in Maryland
Pedestrian accidents are the cause of thousands of injuries across Maryland each year. Many of these accidents are caused by acts of negligence. Distractions, speeding, and failing to yield to pedestrians are some of the factors that commonly contribute to these accidents taking place.
Pedestrians are particularly vulnerable to suffering significant injuries in collisions due to the fact that they are unprotected. When young children are involved, the chances of significant and life-altering injuries are dramatically increased. It is common for victims of pedestrian accidents to have to go through extensive medical treatment and remain hospitalized for several days following their accidents or even weeks.
Many victims have to go through therapy and rehabilitation in order to overcome their injuries. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that a victim is going to be able to overcome their injuries completely. Thousands of people are forced to deal with the life-altering consequences of crashes forever.
