As the last few days of summer shine on Maryland, residents and visitors are eagerly awaiting the first signs of autumn. Driving through The Old Line State can be a picturesque experience, as motorists pass fall foliage, rivers, wildlife and other natural gems. Unfortunately, not every trip down a Maryland road is an enjoyable experience, and if a car accident occurs, the trip may become a living nightmare.
Recently, an SUV driven by a 29-year-old Maryland woman was traveling eastbound when she passed another vehicle, but lost control shortly thereafter. Her vehicle, which carried three passengers, including an infant, spun out. The vehicle wound up in oncoming traffic, and the driver of a westbound pickup truck could not avoid a collision. The SUV began to flip, and a passenger was ejected.
When help arrived, it was determined that three people, including the infant, had suffered serious injuries. A male passenger in the SUV died as a result of the crash. Authorities say that the SUV driver was at fault, and she may have been speeding and made errors while driving, directly causing the crash.
When a driver causes harm to other people, victims have the right to take legal action. Medical bills, funeral expenses, damage to personal property and loss of wages due to inability to work are burdens that can cause further suffering to an accident victim and/or his or her family. An experienced attorney can help a crash victim, or a deceased victims’ family, pursue recovery of monetary damages from the party or parties deemed responsible.
