Maryland man explains serious injuries after crash

Athletes from all the over the world recently arrived in Maryland to compete in the 40th Ironman race. The Ironman involves athletes competing by swimming, biking and running over 140 miles; it is understandably a difficult race. Among the athletes is a survivor of a horrific accident that resulted in serious injuries.

The man recently told his story to a reporter of how he suffered serious injuries after being struck by a dump truck. The accident occurred as he was crossing an intersection on foot. Despite injuries to almost every major organ, the man survived.

The man continued to explain that his injuries required a total of 14 different surgeries. He suffered shattered ribs, a shattered pelvis, collapsed lungs and lost almost 60 percent of his blood volume. In addition to multiple surgeries, he also required 36 blood transfusions. Although it took him three years to recover, the man reports that he now has a child and has competed in five other Ironman races prior to the recent Maryland race.

As this man has recounted, a pedestrian accident can result in life-altering and life-threatening injuries. The costs of surgeries, medical treatment and therapy all coupled with the inability to earn a living while recovering can cause financial hardships for the victims and their families. Maryland attorneys understand the financial burden many accident victims experience following an accident and can advise them of their options to seek compensation. Attorneys may help some victims secure compensation from insurance companies, while other victims may be advised of their options to file a personal injury lawsuit against the party or parties deemed responsible for their damages and losses.
