Pedestrian Accidents in Maryland
Why do I need a Maryland personal injury lawyer?
The last thing that you expect when you are walking along a sidewalk or in a crosswalk is to be severely injured in an accident. Unfortunately, negligent bicyclists, skateboarders, and motorists cause a number of serious pedestrian injuries each year. As a pedestrian, you have the right of way on the sidewalk and when you are legally crossing the street. No motorist has an excuse for hitting you within a crosswalk or at any other crossing point when you have given them plenty of time to stop. Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C. has extensive personal injury experience and is more than capable of recovering your damages for a pedestrian accident.
Serious Injuries Caused in Pedestrian Accidents
Since pedestrians have no form of protection in a collision, catastrophic injury is common. The impact of a collision can cause broken bones and serious neck and back injuries. The pedestrian could also suffer severe road rash or brain injury when they come into contact with the vehicle or with the pavement. Some injuries may even be internal and require expensive scans and x-rays just to find out what damage has been done. Do not hesitate to retain a Maryland personal injury lawyer if you have been in a pedestrian accident because of someone else's negligence.
