Risk of motor vehicle accidents is greater during the holidays

The holiday season is a time for relaxing and visiting with friends in Maryland and around the country. It is also a very busy time of year and traffic can become even more congested than normal. The increased congestion can increase the risk of motor vehicle accidents occurring. A recent accident in the Baltimore area took the life of a young mother and injured her 3-year-old son.

A car was headed eastbound on Eastern Boulevard when it sideswiped another vehicle in an adjoining lane. The car then veered across the median and struck the vehicle that was driven by the young mother, hitting it head-on. The cause of the accident is under investigation but it is believed that the driver of the vehicle who hit the car the child was riding in may have been under the influence. The accident happened shortly after midnight.

The young woman was taken to a hospital where she died as a result of her injuries. Her son was also transported to the hospital with what were not believed to be life-threatening injuries. Two additional vehicles were involved in the collision and the occupants reportedly received minor injuries.

The holidays are a time when families with young children look forward to the looks of wonder on their faces at the lights and joys of the season. A young child losing a parent is always horrific but can be especially so at the holidays as the holiday will forever be connected to the tragic event. Nothing can undo the tragedy of fatal motor vehicle accidents but a consultation with a personal injury attorney in Maryland can inform an individual as to whether a civil lawsuit against the party deemed responsible is a viable option.
