From moderate injuries suffered from the results of minor fender benders to catastrophic injuries suffered from high-speed multi-car pileups, car accidents in Maryland come in many shapes and sizes. However, when a car accident involves a pedestrian, the injuries suffered are rarely minor. If a pedestrian is injured as a result of another driver's negligence and decides to file a legal claim, these claims are governed by the law of negligence. That is, motorists must exercise "reasonable care under the circumstances" and a failure to do so may be considered negligence.

The complications of a brain injury are often referred to as hidden disabilities, because those who suffer one may not feel any direct effects initially.
