Fatal Car Accidents in Maryland
Fatal car crashes in the state of Maryland take the lives of hundreds of people annually. Unfortunately, we see innocent people die as a result of traffic crashes caused by negligence. Some of the leading factors in car crashes include impairment, distractions, and drivers who fail to yield.
Any type of traffic accident has the potential to cause severe injuries to those involved. Regrettably, when vehicles catch on fire as a result of collisions, victims involved in the accident are more likely to suffer fatal injuries. Unfortunately, motor vehicle crashes are one of the leading causes of death and injury in the United States.
Seatbelts are one of the most important safety features in a car, and they can greatly reduce the severity of injuries in a crash. However, they are not always enough to keep someone from fatally injured as a result of the crash. This is particularly true when vehicles catch on fire.
