Separate traffic accidents occurred earlier this month in Anne Arundel County. Emergency responders helped five individuals who were hurt in Davidsonville and Glen Burnie, according to the county’s fire department. As Maryland car accident attorneys, the lawyers at Lebowitz-Mzhen, LLC are experienced in representing victims of fatal and non-fatal automobile accidents across the state. A news story coming out of Millersville, MD, reminds that one person’s negligence can cause much pain and suffering to many others.
According to reports, emergency personnel responded to a motorcycle crash in Davidsonville at 10:30am on September 7. In what appears to have been a single-vehicle crash, a 47-year-old motorcycle rider was found injured on the side of Patuxent River Road near Doublegate Road. It is not certain if this accident was a result of rider error or because of defective equipment, however rescuers aided and transported the man to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center with serious but not life-threatening injuries.
Just after noon that same day, responders were called to the scene of a two-vehicle crash in Glen Burnie. The force of the collision, which occurred at the intersection of Ritchie Highway and Maryland Avenue, caused an occupant in one of the vehicles to become entrapped before firefighters were able to free the victim.
According to news reports, rescuers found a woman trapped in her car, with three other people suffering from minor injuries. Those three were treated at the scene and taken to area hospitals for evaluation. The woman, a 39-year-old resident, was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore with serious but not life-threatening injuries.
In cases like these, although minor injuries can seem non-life-threatening, there is still a chance that they may cause life-long discomfort or, worse, chronic and painful recurrences. Never assume that a minor injury is something to be dismissed. If you have any concerns about the seriousness of an injury as a result of a traffic accident caused by the negligence of another person, we highly recommend that you contact a qualified auto injury accident lawyer to review your options.
