Now, drivers need to be more careful than ever as the summer driving season kicks into high gear. There are more cars on the road between July 4th and Labor Day than almost any other time of year.
Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) August 06, 2013
A fatal truck accident on Interstate 95 in Maryland on July 1 illustrates just how dangerous one of the busiest highways in America can be, especially during the summer months, according to H. Briggs Bedigian, a personal injury lawyer in Baltimore at Gilman & Bedigian.
“Fatal accidents happen too often on Interstate 95,” said Bedigian, whose firm represents people injured and families who lost loved ones in accidents. “Now, drivers need to be more careful than ever as the summer driving season kicks into high gear. There are more cars on the road between July 4th and Labor Day than almost any other time of year. Everyone’s in a rush. They’re racing to the beach or a barbeque. That’s when accidents happen. That’s why drivers need to remain vigilant. Your life could be on the line. You might not get a second chance if you’re involved in a serious car accident on I-95. Stay alert and stay safe.”
The fatal truck accident on July 1 occurred at 7:53 a.m. on Interstate 95 in Harford County just north of Baltimore, according to The Baltimore Sun (“Traffic: Fatal crash on I-95 in Harford Co.,” July 1, 2013). The accident involving a box truck that turned over between the northbound and southbound median forced officials to temporarily close lanes in both directions, the Baltimore Sun reported.
“While the recent I-95 accident remains under investigation, generally speaking fatal truck accidents can raise complex legal questions,” Bedigian said. “Truck accidents might involve negligence by the driver, but also might involve negligence by the trucking company or a third party. Any number of factors might contribute to an accident. The truck may have been overloaded. There may have been mechanical defects. Knowing what to do after a fatal car accident can be extremely confusing, but personal injury lawyers can help the injured and their families get justice.”
