In Baltimore, MD on February 23, there was a pedestrian accident in Franklin Square. While the Baltimore Police Department and local firefighters were called to the scene, the pedestrian miraculously walked away with only injuries. The pedestrian was walking near 37 N. Bruce Street when a vehicle hit them. No other information is known about whether the driver of the vehicle was injured in any way or if they remained at the scene following the accident.
While the emergency medical service responders took care of the pedestrian at the scene of the accident, the victim chose not to be transported to a local hospital following the accident. The Baltimore Police Department is currently investigating what caused the accident and whether the driver was acting negligently. It is crucial for both drivers and pedestrians to remember that public spaces are shared spaces. Even though a pedestrian may have the right of way, it is critical to be aware of your surroundings before stepping out into the road. Similarly, even if a driver has the right of way, it is crucial that they make note of any pedestrians or bicyclists nearby to ensure that they are giving them enough room. It is extremely important that even if you do not think you were injured from an accident like this–whether you are the driver or the pedestrian–you get medical attention as quickly as possible.
Physical Therapy After You Were Involved In An Accident
When you were injured as a pedestrian in a pedestrian-car accident, you know that means you are likely worse off than the other guy. This is because pedestrians are not nearly as protected–if at all–when it comes to pedestrian-car accidents. Instead, you may have rolled off of the car, been pinned underneath, or even been thrown into another object. When this is the case and you are trying to successfully recover after an accident like this, you should seek help from a therapist through Baltimore, MD physical therapy. You may be surprised at the ways physical therapy can help you following an accident.
Physical therapy can:
- Help prevent long-term damage. It’s true that physical therapy can help you with your injuries immediately following an accident. However, physical therapy can also help with the long-term damage that the accident may have caused as well. If you do not address your injuries quickly, you could be facing long-term or permanent damage. A physical therapist from Mid Atlantic Spinal Rehab & Chiropractic can teach you which moves are safe to do.
- Help avoid surgery. It is important to remember that there are some things only surgery can fix and your physical therapist isn’t recommending avoiding a necessary surgery for physical therapy sessions. However, you may find that your injuries cause further damage or wear and tear that affects you more long-term. These kinds of injuries could lead to the need for surgery in the future. Instead, ask your physical therapist what kinds of moves you can do now to try to avoid surgeries, if possible.
When you were injured as a pedestrian in an accident, it is time to seek help from a physical therapist you can rely on today. Call now.
