Baltimore City has a population of around 600,000 residents, but far more people come to and from the city each day for work, school, or leisure. Therefore, it’s no surprise that more injury accidents occur in Baltimore City than all counties in Maryland. According to the MVA there were almost six thousand injury accidents in Baltimore City in 2018. For comparison sake, there are over one million people living in Montgomery County but there were 700 fewer injury accidents there in 2018. There are a variety or reasons why there are so many injury car accidents in Baltimore City, and two of the main reasons aer high traffic an poor road planning. While not as confusing as Washington D.C., Baltimore has its share of issues when it comes to traffic control and planning. There are numerous one-way streets that can be confusing to drivers, and traffic lights and signs are often ignored by aggressive drivers who want to get to where they are going faster than everyone else. In addition to these issues, there are also a large amount of pedestrians coming in all directions, and mixing aggressive drivers and pedestrians in the same area can spell disaster. While there are a decent amount of crosswalks in the downtown area, the crosswalks are not adequately marked and even when they are, drivers have a tendency to speed through. Baltimore is a small city, and therefore there is an abundance of parking garages to accommodate all the cars. These garages can be extremely dangerous to pedestrians, and frequent accidents occur due to people driving too fast or not paying attention. If you are a passenger, pedestrian or bicycle rider and have been hit by a negligent driver you deserve the best possible representation, and a lawyer that will recover the highest possible amount of damages. Benjamin Herbst will take on the billion dollar insurance companies, and is never afraid to take these profit machines to court.
Interstate 83, also known as the JFX is one of the most dangerous stretches of highway in the state. It’s a windy road with heavy traffic that invites a lot of aggressive driving, and this is never a good mix. We hear about lane closures due to accidents on 83 all the time, but the reality is that people are seriously injured on this highway almost daily. If you or a family member was injured by a negligent driver on 83 or anywhere in Baltimore City, Benjamin Herbst is standing by to offer a free consultation on how you can recover the maximum amount of damages under Maryland law. Medical bills are expensive and can lead to insurmountable debt, and if someone else caused the injuries that required medical care they should pay for every cent. In addition, a negligent driver who caused you to miss work should be required to pay for the money you lost while out of work. Recovering from an injury suffered in a car accident is a long and painful road, and the negligent driver responsible for your injures should have to compensate you for this pain. Our advice is to seek immediate medical attention anytime you are involved in accident, and then call Baltimore City injury lawyer Benjamin Herbst so he can start fighting for you right away.
