Pedestrian Accidents Fighting For You Like Family

Maryland Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

Helping the Wrongfully Injured in Our Communities

When a pedestrian is hit by a car, the result is rarely “minor.” The disparity between the vehicle’s weight and that of the pedestrian is practically guaranteed to cause life-changing injuries, even when the collision happens at speeds under 50 miles per hour.

If you or a loved one were hit while walking down the streets of Maryland, then Potter Burnett Law can help you explore your legal options. Our pedestrian accident lawyers have decades of collective legal experience to put to good use for you and your case. When the opposition sees our name on your claim, it will know that it has to step up to the plate for a real legal ballgame that it will probably lose. Don’t you think your case should have real legal champions like ours leading the way? We do.

For more information about starting a claim, call (301) 804-6784 or contact us online.

Injuries Suffered in Pedestrian Accidents

As mentioned, the likelihood of a catastrophic injury happening in a pedestrian accident is high. There is nothing to protect a pedestrian from the impact of a collision. If the pedestrian is an elder or child, then the risk of severe injury will be even higher.

It is not unusual for pedestrian accident victims to suffer these injuries:

The value of your injury claim will depend heavily upon the severity of your injuries. The worse you have been hurt, the more medical treatments you will need and the more work you will miss, after all. If you have been severely injured, then you should speak with an attorney right away because there is a high chance that the opposing insurance company is going to reject your claim due to its steep value.

What to Do If You’re Hurt in a Pedestrian Accident

After being in a pedestrian accident, it is important that you seek medical attention immediately. You could have an underlying injury that you don’t notice at first due to the adrenaline moving through your system. For example, you might think you only bumped your head by being knocked down by the car, but you could have a concussion that worsens each moment it is undiagnosed and untreated.

You also need to get identifying information from the driver who hit you and anyone who witnessed the accident. The driver’s information can be used to file a claim or lawsuit against them. The information from the passersby could prove instrumental in proving your claim if the insurance company denies it, which it probably will.
