Unprotected by the steel frame of a car, pedestrians are at high risk of injury in an accident or collision when automobile drivers are negligent. In Maryland and Washington, D.C., there exists a dual right of the roadway to both pedestrians and drivers of cars.
Even if an injured pedestrian has serious injuries, the at-fault driver’s insurance company may deny responsibility for their driver — sometimes even lying about how the collision happened. In these cases it is very important to have proper witnesses to the accident as well as a clear explanation of how the event occurred.
Charles County, MD auto accident attorney Matt Trollinger knows that if you, your child, or other loved one was hit by a car while walking, you have medical bills to pay and deserve justice. He will directly handle the insurance company and gather the right evidence to support your claims.

* Many attorneys, insurance companies, and clients call an incident when someone was injured an “accident.” For this reason, our website uses this word. But an incident is not really an "accident" if there were rules in place to keep us all safe, yet someone chose not to follow those rules — and, as a result, someone else was hurt. When you speak with Trollinger Law, you'll find we talk instead in terms of "crashes," "collisions," etc.
