Pedestrian Killed Crossing Route 40 in Harford County

The Aberdeen Police crash team is investigating an accident that occurred Friday, April 2, 2010.  Michael R. Patton, 49, of Aberdeen was struck and killed by a man from Edgewood operating a 2002 International truck in the eastbound lanes of Pulaski Highway near Carol Avenue, in Harford County.  The identity of the man operating the truck has not yet been released and a spokesperson for the police department indicated they are not sure if charges will be filed.

The accident occurred in a fairly dark location of the roadway.  The crash team when investigating these types of accident has to look at environmental issues, lighting and those types of things that could make it safer for pedestrians.   Pedestrians should also use crosswalks, whenever possible and look both ways before crossing a highway.  

Regardless, of whether it was pedestrian error or the driver's fault that the accident occurred, the pedestrian is entitled to benefits from that driver's policy.  Specifically, his family would be entitled to Personal Injury Protection benefits to cover funeral expenses up to the limit of coverage available under that driver's policy.  In the event the pedestrian also owned a motor vehicle and carried Personal Injury Protection benefits in excess of the driver who struck him, than his family could also look to his policy to cover additional expenses. The family of the deceased may also bring a wrongful death claim.  

If you, a family member, or someone you know has been injured in a pedestrian accident or any other type of automobile accident or you need more information on automobile accidents and Personal Injury Protection benefits, please contact Portner & Shure and speak with one of our Maryland accident lawyers for a free consultation.
