Seek compensation for the pedestrian accident that harmed you

Pedestrian accidents are often very gruesome because of the way that pitting a steel frame vehicle against a human body ends. As you can imagine, there are likely going to be serious injuries involved in these accidents. Even though this is common knowledge, many drivers tend to forget that they have a duty to keep pedestrians safe.

We recently discussed some of the guidelines about when pedestrians have the right of way. It is imperative that pedestrians take this information to heart because they have to do their part to keep themselves safe.

When a pedestrian accident occurs, there are several things that we have to determine if the pedestrian is planning on seeking compensation. One of these things is the status of the pedestrian. In our previous blog post, we discussed why children are so much more likely to be the victim of a pedestrian accident. When a young child is struck, the child might not have the full understanding of danger that an adult has, so he or she wouldn't be held to the same standard as an adult.

If you or your child was injured in a pedestrian accident, you might decide that you are going to seek compensation from the driver who struck you. This could help you to recover some of the damages. Medical bills, pain and suffering, missed wages and similar damages might all be included in your claim.

Make sure that you act quickly to get the process going after the accident. Maryland laws set time limits for when we can get your case filed. If we miss the window for filing, we won't get another chance to try to get you the compensation you deserve.
