Nervous System Damage

Injuries to the nervous system have forever altered the lives of millions of people around the country. In fact, it is estimated that 7,000,000 head injuries occur annually in the United States. Of those, more than 500,000 people are hospitalized. These staggering statistics are alarming enough as it is and they do not even take into account spinal injuries which have just as much a detrimental impact upon someone’s life as a head injury. Sadly, most of the people affected are no longer able to live normal lives. Whether the consequence of a car crash, work-related injury, assault, or negligent care, victims must be justly compensated for the hardships they are left to endure for the rest of their lives.

Unfortunately, insurance is often not enough to cover all of these expenses. However, there is legal recourse available for victims in Maryland. With the right legal representation from our Maryland nervous system damage lawsuit lawyers, a successful lawsuit can help attain the monetary compensation deserved.

Motorcyclist Dies After Collision With Trooper

Motorcyclist Dies After Collision

(Waldorf, MD) – A Charles County motorcyclist was fatally injured this afternoon following a collision with an off-duty state trooper at a new intersection in Charles County.

The crash victim is identified as John W. Harding, 33, of the 4700-block of Kittiwake Court, Waldorf, Md. He was pronounced dead at Prince George’s Hospital Center where he had been flown by U.S. Park Police Eagle 1.

The trooper involved is identified as Trooper First Class Justin E. Zimmerman, 26, assigned to the Maryland State Police Crash Team at the College Park Barracks. He has been employed by the Maryland State Police for six years.

Shortly before 4:00 p.m. today, Zimmerman was off-duty, driving an unmarked State Police 2006 Ford Expedition northbound on Middletown Road when he entered a new intersection at Lexington Drive and made a left turn. Harding was southbound on Middletown Road, operating a 2006 Harley Davidson motorcycle as he rounded the curve approaching Lexington Drive.

The preliminary State Police investigation indicates Zimmerman was following a northbound school bus before turning left at the intersection in front of Harding. The motorcycle slid into the right rear of the Ford Expedition, causing Harding to be ejected. Harding was wearing a helmet. The motorcycle caught fire after the crash. Zimmerman was not injured in the crash.

The intersection where the crash occurred is a new intersection where the road is still under construction. There is a traffic signal installed at the intersection, but it is not yet functioning. The speed limit on Middletown Road is 30 mph. The speed of the motorcycle at the time of the crash has not been determined.

The State Police investigation is continuing. Upon completion, the investigation will be presented to the Charles County State’s Attorney’s Office for review.
