Baltimore Auto Accident Lawyers Provide Compassionate Representation When a Loved One is Killed in an Accident Due to Another Driver’s Negligence
We hold negligent drivers accountable
Traffic accidents are the number one cause of death for people aged 4 to 34. In Maryland alone, there were more than 550 fatal car accidents a year between 2003 and 2007, averaging 635 deaths each year. Whenever a catastrophic accident occurs on the road, families feel both an emotional and financial blow. The Baltimore auto accident attorneys at Mallon & McCool, LLC, understand your pain and grief and help you pick up the pieces.
Types of fatal accidents
Only about a quarter of a percent of all traffic accidents are fatal, but those accidents often have similar factors that lead to their tragic results. Common types of accidents that lead to deaths include:
- Pedestrian collision — If a pedestrian is in a driver’s blind spot or a driver simply isn’t paying attention, they can strike or run over the walker and kill them
- Head-on collision — When two cars strike each other from opposite directions, they strike with the combined force of both speeds, which can have devastating results at combined speeds of over 100 miles per hour
- Cyclist accident — Cyclists take to the roads without the protection of a car’s frame around them. Even with a helmet, when a cyclist is hit by a car or truck, the trauma to their body can be fatal
- Rollovers and blowouts — Running off the road, sideswipes and tire blowouts can send cars spinning on their sides, throwing their passengers inside and often resulting in life-threatening injuries
What are you eligible to receive after a fatal accident?
Many family members will settle for what life insurance pays out after a fatal car accident, but this often doesn’t cover the financial losses they suffer. If another driver is at fault for a car accident that killed your loved one, our Baltimore auto accident attorneys help you receive compensation for:
- Loss of income — This includes future wages your loved one may have earned
- Personal suffering — The emotional trauma of the death of your loved one may leave you unable to work or have a dramatic effect on your life.
- Medical costs — If your loved one was hospitalized before they died, or received any medical treatment, those costs can be covered
- Others’ injuries — If someone dies in a car accident, it shouldn’t overshadow the injuries of other passengers or the treatment they require
While nothing can make up for the loss of a family member, an experienced Baltimore auto accident attorney can help you determine just how much you can be compensated for your suffering.
