It’s been awhile since our Baltimore personal injury law firm has posted on a story on this site about a Maryland child pedestrian accident. However, our child injury lawyers continue to remain concerned about the hundreds of kids that are killed each year because they were struck by a motor vehicle.
As Baltimore injuries to minor attorneys, we are familiar with the kinds of serious injuries that can occur during a child pedestrian accident (For example: traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, broken bones, organ damage, disfigurement, and burn injuries) and we know how important it is to get the financial recovery you need to help cover medical expenses and other costs.
Our Maryland injury lawyers work with accident reconstructions and medical experts that know how to prove exactly how your injuries happened. We are experienced in building solid cases for our clients while providing you with the legal counsel and support that you need during this difficult time.
Depending on the details of what happened, possible liable parties might include a driver, the entity responsible for maintaining/designing the road, the manufacturer of the motor vehicle or one of its parts, or the party that served alcohol to an intoxicated driver.
