One man is dead and another person was injured after their vehicles collided head-on. This incident reportedly occurred the evening of June 6, in Upper Marlboro. The losses associated with car accidents like this one are great. The victim may be entitled to seek relief by pursuing claims against the responsible party's estate.
This tragic event took place around 9:30 p.m., on Croom Road. Authorities responded to a call about a crash at the 9900 block and arrived to find a motorcyclist down and the driver of a pickup truck injured. The motorcycle operator -- a 28-year-old male -- was traveling northbound when he is said to have crossed the centerline into the southbound lane and hit the truck head-on. Little is known about the pickup driver other than he or she is said to have suffered injuries that were not life-threatening.
Whenever a collision like this occurs, everyone affected -- the victim, his or her family and the family members of the deceased -- just want to know why it happened in order to gain a sense of closure. Police are still in the process of investigating this incident. They are asking any witnesses to the event to call in any information that they may have about the crash.
The damages that follow car accidents like this one may affect the victim for years to come. The injured individual in this particular event deserves all the help he or she can get to assist with the recovery process. Unfortunately, gaining access to such support is not always easy or affordable. With the assistance of an Upper Marlboro-based personal injury attorney, the victim of this incident may seek monetary damages for all legally recoverable losses he or she has suffered. While seeking relief may take some time, the time spent on negotiations or litigation may prove worthwhile in the end if maximum relief is achieved.
