Laurel Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Know Your Rights as a Pedestrian in Maryland

The chances are high that a pedestrian who is struck by a vehicle will suffer serious and potentially life-threatening injuries. The victim will face a long recovery and significant financial challenges, including large medical bills and restricted income.

At McGowan & Cecil, LLC, accident victims have an ally and an advocate. We work tirelessly to help our clients get the medical care and compensation they need to rebuild their lives. If you or a family member has been in a serious accident, we stand ready to help you.

Maryland law recognizes the existence of "de facto crosswalks." This means that even if you were struck in an unmarked part of the street, you may still be in a recognized crosswalk.

Our firm offers free consultations so we can further discuss the details of your case. To schedule yours, contact us at (301) 761-2007!

Our Laurel pedestrian accident lawyers have earned a strong reputation throughout Maryland for their trial advocacy skills. We have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for accident victims, and we want to help you obtain the best possible award or settlement. When representing you, we will investigate the accident, determine the losses you have suffered, and seek compensation for your medical costs, lost income, and other non-economic losses such as pain and suffering.

Experienced in Handling Claims Involving Serious Injuries

McGowan & Cecil, LLC has experience in catastrophic injury cases involving head injuries, brain injuries, neck injuries and spinal cord injuries. We will consult with your physician or other medical specialists to learn about the medical care and rehabilitation therapy you will need to recover to the fullest extent possible.
