Maryland car accidents: 1 dead, 3 hurt when pickup slams car

There are many good drivers on the road. Often, even the most experienced and careful drivers are completely unable to avoid car accidents when, for example, one car unexpectedly swerves into the lane of another. According to police reports, an accident similar to this in Maryland resulted in one man's death and the serious injury of three others.

In late October, a 41-year-old driver was traveling on a Maryland road with his 40-year-old-wife and 17-year-old son. They were traveling in the opposite direction of a large pickup truck. Police claim the driver of the pickup lost control, causing him to veer across the center line and strike the oncoming vehicle.

Unfortunately, the driver of the first car died at the scene. All others were transported to a local hospital. The deceased man's wife has since been released, but his son is still considered to be in critical condition. The driver of the pickup truck is in serious condition.

While the family of the deceased man will have to cope with his death, they will also have to cope with the financial burdens stemming from the car accident. In addition to funeral expenses and loss of income, they will have medical bills as a result of hospital care. People involved in car accidents in Maryland have the option of seeking financial compensation through the civil court system when the evidence suggests their injuries (or a fatality) were caused by the negligence of another party. If this family can offer sufficient proof, a civil court may order an award of monetary damages for the family to help alleviate the financial burdens created by the tragic accident.
