Compassionate Guidance, Fearless Representation

Trucking accidents involving children are especially tragic

Maryland highways can be downright deadly. Posted speed limits are often 70 mph and high traffic areas can be challenging to navigate. Every driver is legally obligated to adhere to traffic laws and safety regulations. If a driver fails in his or her duty and another person suffers injury because of it, he or she may be held legally accountable. Trucking accidents often result in catastrophic injuries or even death.

recent incident involved a school bus and a tractor-trailer. The bus and at least two other vehicles, one of which was the tractor-trailer, collided. The results were disastrous.

Sadly, one of the people involved died while still at the crash scene. Six people were transported to a hospital for treatment of their injuries. Although one of the accident victims is said to have refused transport, it is always a good idea to obtain medical attention in such situations because not all injuries are immediately apparent and it pays to have documentation of one's health condition in case an injury claim is filed later.

Victims who survive Maryland trucking accidents can seek financial recovery for damages if they believe another person's recklessness or negligence caused their injuries. In cases where a victim does not survive an accident, a parent, spouse or other immediate family member may act on behalf of the decedent in civil court by filing a wrongful death claim. If the person deemed liable for the incident is deceased, a claim can be filed against his or her estate.
