Two people were injured; one of them critically; following a Reservoir Hill accident, officials said. The crash happened on North Avenue in Baltimore’s Reservoir Hill neighborhood on January 4.
One of the drivers was extricated by the firefighters after the accident that happened around noon, the police and fire department officials confirmed.
The driver was transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in critical condition. The other driver sustained non-life-threatening injuries, detective Nicole Monroe, a Baltimore Police spokeswoman said.
The police haven’t released the names of the drivers and so far it’s not clear what led to the Reservoir Hill accident and if anyone else was involved. The investigation continues.
North Avenue, a major east-west Baltimore street, was closed for a few hours in the afternoon as police and firefighters were at the scene.
Hiring a car accident attorney after an accident is a good way to deal with all the legal things. Seeking a compensation claim, gathering evidence, courts, negotiations with the insurers can be overwhelming and challenging. A victim injured in an accident should have only one goal – healing and getting their claim. Everything else will be done with the help of the attorney.
Make sure to hire a lawyer as soon as possible. The legal advice and guidance are priceless when you are trying to get a settlement that should cover your medical bills, expenses related to the damages of your property, as well as the lost wages.
A consultation with an attorney is important when the police arrive and start asking questions. Everything you say may and will be used against you. Explaining what happened, and that you might be at fault can be a big mistake. The insurance company would gladly take your words when making a decision to offer a low settlement or deny it completely.
