With ever-increasing road traffic, and distracted driving, it is not surprising that motor vehicle accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists are on the rise. These collisions often result in severe injuries and even death.
Pedestrians and bicyclists have both rights and responsibilities regarding their safety when using the roadways. When, in spite of following the applicable rules, a pedestrian or bicyclist is injured due to the negligent operation of a motor vehicle, the victim deserves the aggressive advocacy provided by attorney Robert D. Ahlstrom. Mr. Ahlstrom, a Maryland trial attorney since 1974, has a proven track record of successfully representing individuals and families in cases where they have suffered injury because of the negligence of others.
Baltimore Pedestrian Injury Lawyer
In one case, Mr. Ahlstrom obtained a large settlement for an elderly pedestrian who was struck by a slow-moving vehicle as she was pushing her grocery cart in a marked crosswalk of a shopping center. She sustained a "non-displaced fracture" that, to younger folks, would have caused only a temporary setback. However, with his experience representing the elderly in nursing home and assisted living negligence claims, Mr. Ahlstrom understood the permanent limitations his elderly client suffered as a result of this otherwise minor injury, and made the insurance company understand as well.
