A man was left with life-threatening injuries after he was struck by a car while crossing a road, and Maryland State Police have asked for the public's help in tracking down the hit-and-run driver responsible. The accident occurred at about 10 p.m. on a recent Friday, right in front of a Starbucks coffee shop near the intersection of Route 50 and Elm Street in West Ocean City.
Baltimore residents understand that, at one time or another, everyone makes mistakes. Learning to admit these mistakes and learn from them is what may make the difference in not repeating them again. For some professionals in the medical community, however, not only are mistakes not being corrected, but patients who have suffered personal injury because of the mistakes are not even being told about them.
It is natural for Baltimore-area residents who have experienced the loss of a loved one to want nothing more than to grieve over their loss. Added to this grief can be feelings of confusion over how the person died, particularly when the death occurred during an accident involving another person. In these circumstances, individuals can work with professionals to determine how the death occurred, and whether someone else may be held liable in a wrongful death action.
When Baltimore residents sustain personal injuries at the hands of another person, they want to hold that person accountable. Part of this includes having the negligent party pay compensation to the victim, including any medical expenses incurred as a result of the injury.
