Maryland, which is located in the United States' Mid-Atlantic region, is the nation's 9th smallest state when measured by area. While it is the U.S.'s 19th most populous state, it is its 5th most densely populated state. Maryland's most populous city, Baltimore, and some of its surrounding communities are a major component of the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area. In 2012, Maryland had an estimated population of more than 5.8 million people. Most of the state's residents live in suburbs and cities around Washington, D.C., as well as in Baltimore.
There were a total of 493 traffic-related fatalities in 2010, which reflects a rate of 8.52 deaths for every 100,000 residents, according to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). While these figures only represent those who died in traffic accidents, there are also many more Maryland residents who were seriously injured in traffic-related accidents for the same year.
With more than 15 years of legal experience and a background as a former Maryland Assistant State Attorney, Mr. Discavage is more than qualified to help you with your personal injury case.
