Maryland Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
Helping the Wrongfully Injured in Prince Georges, Charles, Calvert, Anne Arundel.

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.
