Pedestrians are especially vulnerable to motor vehicle accidents. After all, a human being simply cannot stand up to a crash involving a car weighing thousands of pounds. Maryland readers may be saddened to hear of one recent pedestrian accident that resulted in a fatality.
While on the road, drivers must be on the lookout for pedestrians, especially at night when visibility is limited. The failure to drive in a safe manner could lead to a devastating accident that injures or kills an innocent individual.
Every day people in Maryland ride the bus, whether it is to work, to a friend's house or while out shopping. One would certainly expect that standing at a bus stop is the safe thing to do while waiting for the bus. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.
An unforeseen fatal accident has the power to devastate a family and will without a doubt permanently affect their lives. Unfortunately, a Maryland family is now reeling from just such a tragic fatal accident.
It's a simple proposition for drivers on the road to follow traffic direction signs. But all too often there are tragic accidents from drivers' either ignoring directional signs or not knowing what they mean. A local Maryland family is facing a tragic loss after an accident due to a driver going the wrong way on the interstate.
Maryland residents may know that when the acts of one driver lead to the injury or death of others, the state law provides a means for victims and their families to seek recourse. Family members may feel lost and confused following the death of a loved one because a death can cause dramatic changes for families and can often leave a family without financial support.
Two Maryland residents died in a violent two-car collision very early Friday morning in Hyattsville. The accident occurred at about 6 a.m. when a Toyota Camry driven by 38-year-old man was turning right when it was struck by an Acura. Police say the Acura was traveling south when it lost control and crossed into the northbound lanes, striking the Camry on the front driver's side.
Losing a loved one unexpectedly can be very detrimental to their families. The grief alone can be overwhelming, but the unexpected medical expenses, funeral expenses and loss of income can permanently hurt a family. Pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit can help families recover some compensation for their loss.
When drivers are on the road, they need to constantly be aware of changing conditions, especially at night and in the early morning. As fall turns to winter, more of the day in Maryland will be spent in the dark and drivers need to be extra cautious. Drivers need to be cautious of weather conditions, other cars and, especially, people. When drivers don't pay attention to the roadways and their surroundings, fatal accidents can occur.
The family of one Maryland woman killed after a vehicle fled a police stop is likely asking how this could happen. The accident occurred early in the morning on a Tuesday when plain clothed officers in an unmarked vehicle observed a Honda that they believed had engaged in suspicious activity that was criminal in nature. But when the officers attempted to stop the Honda, the driver drove off.
