Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Maryland
Experiencing harm in a car crash can have a profound and lasting impact on your life, especially if you sustain serious injuries. Regrettably, each year, a considerable number of individuals in our state endure severe injuries as a result of crashes. Many victims are left dealing with significant injuries that require medical attention. Some of the injuries commonly suffered by car accident victims include:
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI): TBIs can have far-reaching effects on one's mental and physical well-being. Those who suffer from TBIs often experience ongoing pain and suffering, along with difficulties in memory, balance, decision-making, and loss of control over bodily functions. Treating these injuries often requires months or even years of medical intervention.
Spinal Cord Injuries: Any injury to the spinal cord can be severely disabling. Complete spinal cord fractures can lead to permanent paralysis, while incomplete spinal cord injuries may allow for some degree of recovery. However, these injuries require months or even years of intensive therapy and rehabilitation to regain functionality.
