Motor vehicle accidents are, unfortunately, quite common in Maryland and throughout the country. Most accidents that occur in the Silver Spring area are so-called “fender benders.” However, some are serious motor vehicle accidents in which Maryland residents suffer severe injuries and, in the most extreme situations, fatalities occur.
When Maryland residents are involved in car accidents in which they suffer injuries, many different complex problems confront them. For starters, the injuries they suffer may require days, weeks or even months of medical treatment and hospitalization. In the worst-case scenarios, the injuries can be life-altering, such as when car accident victims suffer brain or spinal cord injuries. In the time that follows medical treatment, the bills start to roll in, causing financial problems on top of health problems.
Fortunately, if the motor vehicle accident in question was caused due to another party’s negligent or reckless conduct, an injured victim may have the option to pursue financial compensation in a personal injury lawsuit. Such compensation, if the case is successful, could help injured car accident victims pay for medical bills, as well as help with the lost wages they may have missed while unable to work due to the injuries from the accident.
