Pedestrian Car Accident Settlement In Maryland

Sadly, if you are the victim of being struck by a fast moving automobile while crossing an intersection, you most likely were seriously hurt!  Each year, there are over 4,300 pedestrians killed throughout the United States, and roughly 70,000 who suffer from debilitating traumas caused by a careless driver who refused to yield to a pedestrian who was legally crossing the street.

Many of my clients ask me, "How do they get a fair pedestrian car accident settlement in Maryland?"  Look, it doesn't matter if it's an extremely busy down town intersection, or a quite country road, when a land missile that weighs 3,000 pounds such as an automobile strikes a person even at ten miles an hour, it's usually tragic.

Immediately after a pedestrian is struck by a car, the police arrive along with emergency medical personnel to evaluate the victim.  A rapid appraisal of the injuries is completed while medical care is given to those in need.  One of the things the law enforcement officers will do is to make a written report of any witnesses.

Police officers will also look to establish who was at fault for the accident.  In most cases, the pedestrian has the right of way when entering an intersection, however evidence can reveal that there was some carelessness on the part of the pedestrian which led to the ill-fated injury.

Was The Driver Solely At Fault?

Here's what we need to look at.  Was the walker not paying attention, was the pedestrian texting while walking across the street, or even jaywalking through the intersection which contributed to the accident?  These key elements are all taken into consideration in your pedestrian car accident settlement in Maryland.

If the traumas you sustained don't allow you to go back to the job you held prior to the accident, or stop you from enjoy life as you did before being hit by a car, you may be entitled to be significant financial recovery for the damages you have suffered.  In pedestrian car accident cases here in Maryland, the type of employment you currently hold may also determine the amount of compensation you receive in your settlement.

Obviously, if you're a day laborer, it could take you a lot longer to return back to work than someone who works behind a desk, as a secretary.  On the other hand, if you have a high paying position, you would obtain a much larger settlement than someone who works for minimum wages.

The Four Areas You May Recover Damages For:

1.     Medical expenses,

2.     Lost wages,

3.     Pain and suffering, and

4.     Loss of normal life

There are some key factors that need to be considered which could greatly impact the settlement for a pedestrian who as stuck by a moving vehicle.  This usually depends upon the medical assessment of the injured party, as well as the amount of insurance coverage the driver of the car carries at the time of the accident.  

Other key factors to look at that will decide the amount of the settlement is the degree of the victim's injuries, what responsibility the victim had, if any, that contributed towards the accident.  Many things must be looked from various angles during the legal process which determines a pedestrian car accident settlement in Maryland.

So, if you or someone you know was hit by a car in Maryland you should consult with an experienced personal injury attorney who understands this area of law.  These types of settlement cases aren't fast, simple, or easy!  On the other hand, having the right legal team on your side will greatly help you find the answers you need, while making the process hassle free.
