Individuals go to medical professionals in order to receive accurate diagnoses, quality care and to get better when they are ailing. Most of the time, the individual is healed.

Sometimes, a Maryland resident may go in for a routine medical procedure, only to suffer complications and unforeseen side effects later.

Pedestrian seriously injured in car accident

When a car crash occurs in Maryland, the resulting damage may range from a minor fender bender to multi-vehicle pileups with serious injuries, or worse. However, when the car accident involves a pedestrian, the injuries suffered are often catastrophic. If a pedestrian is injured and decides to file a legal claim, these claims are governed by the law of negligence. This means that motorists must exercise reasonable care under the circumstances, and a failure to do so typically constitutes negligence.

There are avenues for recourse for victims in the Maryland legal system of civil courts.
