Police are currently on the lookout for the driver who was involved in a hit-and-run accident that occurred out of state. The accident occurred on a recent Tuesday in April and involved a pedestrian who was critically injured and suffered a head injury. When Maryland residents are the victims of similar accidents, they are typically entitled to file personal injury suits against the responsible parties.
The accident happened a little after 11:30 p.m., police said. It occurred when a man around 50 years old was walking down the side of a street and was struck by a sedan. Police believe the sedan was darkly colored.
The victim suffered serious injuries, including a head injury. He was rushed to a local hospital, where he was listed in critical condition. Police have yet to locate the vehicle or the driver, but said that the investigation is ongoing and that the driver might be facing multiple charges in relation to this accident.
Although it is not clear of the severity of the victim’s injuries, it is possible that the man’s head injury will result in a traumatic injury. When a Maryland resident suffers such a serious injury that was due to the negligence of another person, an experienced personal injury attorney can help investigate and review both the facts and circumstances of the accident and decide upon an appropriate course of legal action. In doing so, an attorney can help the victim, who may achieve a monetary award to cover all documented financial losses, including medical bills and lost pay.
