Financial help for pedestrians injured in Maryland car accidents

As summer is winding down, students are preparing to return to school. Unfortunately one rising freshman in a Maryland community will likely be spending the opening days of school recovering in the hospital instead of catching up with classmates. While his family is likely happy the teenager survived a potentially fatal car accident, they are likely wondering how they will afford the mound of medical bills that will likely result from his treatment. Fortunately, those injured in car accidents such as the one that caused this teenager’s injuries have the option of seeking legal recourse in the form of financial compensation.The incident occurred in late August. The 14-year-old male was attempting to cross the street when he was struck by a vehicle. Although he is recovering from severe head trauma, he is expected to survive.Currently, no charges have been filed as a result of the accident as the investigation is likely ongoing. However, one witness stated that the driver of the car was speeding at the time of the incident. According to officials, the area is known to be busy and somewhat dangerous.Anyone who has received care in a hospital for even minor procedures know hospital visits are expensive. The kind of care required for an extended stay with treatment for head trauma will likely result in many extremely high medical bills. Additionally, his parents may need to take leave from work as they assist with their son’s recovery. Victims, or the families of victims, of car accidents such as this can file a case in a Maryland civil court in order to seek relief from the financial pressures of such a situation. If they can prove the teenager’s injuries were a result of the driver’s negligence, they may be eligible to receive compensation for his medical bills and related damages, as well as lost wages as a result of missed work while they care for him.
