Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Maryland

Baltimore, MD – Man Loses Life in Pedestrian Crash on Reisterstown RdFatal pedestrian accidents take the lives of more than 100 people annually in the state of Maryland. Far too many of these accidents are a result of drivers who are reckless and negligent. We see many pedestrians lose their lives as a result of speeding drivers, drivers who fail to yield, and drivers who run red lights or pass through stop signs at intersections.

After losing a loved one in a fatal pedestrian accident, your family has the ability to file a wrongful death claim against the person who is responsible. To prevail, you must clearly demonstrate that negligence played a role in the accident. This involves showing that the defendant who was identified in the accident owed your loved one a duty of care, breached the duty, and caused the accident to occur. Furthermore, he must then demonstrate that you have suffered damages as a result of the accident.

Even though this may seem like a straightforward and easy process, insurance companies will do everything they can to prevent you from recovering compensation. This makes it in your best interest to seek guidance from a Baltimore wrongful death lawyer right away. Your attorney will be able to build a case against the defendant and fight for compensation on your behalf.

After experiencing the sun and an unexpected loss of a loved one due to a fatal accident caused by negligence, your family may be entitled to recover compensation for funeral costs, lost earning capacity, loss of consortium, and more.
