If you’ve been injured in a pedestrian accident, you’re no stranger to the way that an ordinary day can change in an instant. The greater Baltimore, MD area is home to countless pedestrian accidents every year. Because of the often serious injuries that pedestrians sustain when hit by larger vehicles, it’s crucial to have a thoughtful and experienced injury attorney on your team.
The Baltimore area presents certain challenges as our city has always been highly congested. What’s more, drivers speed more than ever these days, and cell phones create a never-ending opportunity for distraction. Meanwhile, the pedestrian culture of particular neighborhoods encourages frequent jaywalking – which puts some people at a greater risk of injury and accident.
Understanding The Statistics
The Baltimore Metro Area is ranked 55 nationwide for its number of pedestrian car accident fatalities. In fact, pedestrian accidents accounted for nearly two fatalities per 100,000 Maryland residents from 2005 to 2015.
Lawmakers have proposed solutions to this devastating problem, including:
- Reducing the distance between crosswalks,
- Installing median fences to discourage jaywalking,
- Lowering the speed limit,
- Increasing the placement of speed cameras,
- And more…
But while these proposals have their merit, Baltimore continues to be one of the most dangerous cities for pedestrians in the entire U.S. The astronomical rate of tragedy is staggering – and when it happens to you, you need a pedestrian accident attorney you can rely on.
