Maryland doctor and rising singer dies in car accident

Those working in the medical field are subjected to abnormally high rates of stress. Couple the stress with lack of sleep from long shifts, and the combination can lead to unfortunate outcomes, especially while driving. A Maryland doctor lost his life in a recent car accident.

Workers' compensation for Maryland workers injured on the job

Industrial work can be dangerous. The exposure to toxic elements and potentially deadly equipment can leave workers open to a workplace injury. Maryland residents who are employed in the industrial or construction field have workers' compensation insurance benefits available to them should they be injured while on the job. If the injury result in a fatality, the victim's family is typically entitled to survivors' benefits under the same state-regulated insurance system.

$300,000 awarded in 15-year-old birth injury lawsuit

One woman and her daughter were recently awarded $300,000 in a medical malpractice case. According to the suit, the child suffered fetal depression and hypoxia during her birth, which caused her to have permanent loss of hearing. Similar birth injury cases are presented in courts Maryland each year.

Maryland accident leads to serious injury for three local teens

Teenagers taking to the roads have many more distractions to keep their eyes and concentration off of the task at hand. Even so, many experienced drivers also are plagued with the same distractions that can lead to fatal mistakes. Three Maryland juveniles suffered serious injury after a car accident when a driver failed to yield the right of way.

Drug use in Maryland leads to car accident death

No state in America is free from the scathing after effects of the drug epidemic which is sweeping the nation. People from all walks of life have been found in possession or under the influence of an illegal substance. What is more chilling for Maryland residents is the uptick of recent fatalities due to the rise of such leisure activities. A local woman was recently sentenced from a car accident that killed a newlywed couple last year on Valentine's Day.

Police say Maryland auto accident caused by negligent driver

Anticipating the day that one can drive to school or take a first drive alone can be exhilarating. Earning that badge of honor that comes in the form of a drivers license is a privilege that many young American teenagers can't wait to earn. But with the license comes a tremendous amount of responsibility. Young Maryland drivers should understand the importance of good driving habits and the devastating effects a negligent driver can have for others out on the road.

Medical malpractice can devastate Maryland families

The relationship between a doctor and patient is one of trust and respect. The patient trusts that the doctor will do everything within his or her to handle the patient's medical care with knowledge, information and continued observation. The medical provider respects the patients wishes and rights not only as a patient, but also as a person, and seeks to provide the best all around care possible. When the trust is broken or the respect is lost, the relationship breaks down as does the care provided. Maryland doctors who do not follow procedure and observe patient care can find themselves in the throws of a medical malpractice lawsuit

Common reasons that people file medical malpractice suits

On occasion, an individual may find it necessary to consider whether to pursue a medical malpractice claim against a physician. It is not an easy decision, but at times a person has no choice but to do so in order to address the financial hardships that a medical mistake has caused. Whether it be from a failure to diagnose, medication errors or other forms of medical malpractice, this is an issue which many people in Maryland and across the country face each year.

Maryland employer could be blamed for workplace accidents

Many industrial fields that employ workers are considered high risk or extremely dangerous. Still, many find these types of employment interesting and the pay to be quite lucrative. Construction jobs seem to be at the highest risk for workplace accidents, as working with one's hands and the use of heavy equipment seem to put these workers in danger almost daily. Maryland laws are in place to help keep these employees as safe as possible while on the job site, that is, when their employers follow the law.

Warmer Maryland weather increases likelihood of an auto accident

As the weather warms up, so does the traffic on busy Maryland streets and once-quiet back roads. Longer days and summer breaks from school have most out enjoying the warmth and company of friends who, during the cold wintery months, might not have had so much free time. With more people out and on the roads, the likelihood of an auto accident occurring increases. Even the most experienced drivers are not exempt.
