Maryland car accidents: Girl hit by truck in critical condition

Police in Maryland are currently investigating an accident that left a young girl severely injured. This event happened in Bryantown on Tuesday, Nov. 29. As is true following all car accidents, if the driver responsible is believed to have been negligent in her actions resulting in the wreck, the victim's family may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses through legal means.

According to reports, a 7-year-old girl had just walked off her school bus and was crossing the street to go home for the day when the driver of a pickup truck -- a 35-year-old female -- struck her. The flashing lights on the school bus were on, but the driver simply failed to stop. The young girl was airlifted to the Children's National Hospital. As of the latest report, she was placed in a medically induced coma to help her body heal.

The driver is said to be cooperating with police. No charges have been filed against her, yet. Charges are pending, though. Authorities are still working on wrapping up the investigation, which will reportedly take several weeks.

If this little girl survives this incident, there is no saying what her quality of life will be like. There are never any guarantees of a full recovery after car accidents like this. She may need medical and financial help the rest of her life. This incident has undoubtedly taken a serious toll on the victim and her family, and will continue doing so for the foreseeable future. By pursuing legal claims against the driver responsible in a Maryland civil court, the victim's family may achieve what is likely much-needed monetary relief.
