A car accident, like any sudden, unexpected life event, can throw a person’s plans offline. Unfortunately, car accidents have the potential to be even more devastating to a person’s life than other events, as there is the possibility that those involved in the incident will suffer severe, life-altering injuries. If the accident was caused by another party’s negligent or reckless conduct, the victim in the accident may have a potential legal claim to pursue in order to attempt to recover financial compensation.
Car accidents are, unfortunately, incredibly common in America, and Maryland residents are not immune from the danger these incidents present. While it is fortunate that the vast majority of car accidents are so-called “fender benders” and no one gets hurt, the fact remains that car accidents are one of the leading causes of injuries and deaths in America. People who suffer injuries in car accidents are oftentimes faced with large, unexpected medical bills that drain their savings accounts.
In addition to the substantial impact that a car accident can have on a person’s life, there are many different reasons why car accidents occur to begin with. There are constantly distracted drivers on the roads today, seemingly more so now than ever before. There are still drunk drivers to be aware of, as well as drowsy drivers. Simply put, a car accident can seemingly occur at any time and impact anyone.
