Do you consider yourself a good driver? Do you always pay attention to your surroundings, follow the traffic rules and respect other users of the road? Even if the answer is yes, that doesn’t prevent you from being involved in a car accident. Roads are dangerous, and other drivers can be negligent, and on a bad luck day you might end up suffering physical or monetary losses.
In fact, every year, there are over 90.000 car crashes in Maryland, which sums up to 500 killed and 40.000 injured. And the sad truth is that most of them could have been avoided if the driver wasn’t negligent in his or her driving. In this infographic by Baltimore Personal Injury Lawyer Steven H. Heisler you will find out more about the facts and data related to auto accidents in Maryland. After reading it, remember, if you don’t want to become part of these statistics, bear in mind to always drive safe and to contact a lawyer in the unfortunate case you’re in a car crash.
